The tour was great. We had a great tour guide, James. He is very knowledgeable about the area. The weather was perfect for kayaking as well. It would be nice to spend a half a day kayaking. I'm sure there is alot more areas we could have went to if we had more time.

Informative Guided Tour

Guide was very informative and skilled. Only recommendation would be to reduce maximum size of group to allow better sighting and access to information and observation of sites and species.

Moonlight kayaking scenic but flawed
Tue, Nov 11, 08   5:00 PM Judithsmith Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
It was a beautiful moonlite night and the water was calm. We saw some interesting things . The flaw laid with the guide who was very informed and knowledgeable but seemed to be in his own world of information without regard to whether or not anyone could hear him. He did not wait or ask if anyone could hear him or invite questions. He also bad-mouthed the cruise tourists and the capabilities of those people to handle his tours. The tour was not all that it could be unfortunately.

Nice relaxing time

We had a great time. This was our second trip to Key West and the hustle and bustle of the tourist area on Duvall did not thrill us this time. This was a super alternative to enjoy the lesser known areas of Key West. We had a great guide and got to see sharks, starfish and conchs in their natural environment. Very enjoyable and informative.

We saw hermit crab, slugs, octopus, squid and various other fish life---up close like you have never experienced before. Also liked being out during the moonlight.

Families- request family-friendly guide!
Sat, Jul 26, 14   10:30 AM Jsuther Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Overall this was a nice excursion - however after doing many of these - it really depends on who your guide is as to whether you will have a good experience. Our guide - Sarah - was knowledgable - just didn't seem to want to be there. We have 3 children - and often felt rushed through the experience - which is a shame because it is so beautiful out there and there is so much to see and learn. On a few occasions she was obviously bothered we were lagging and would yell out to the kids to hurry up. After we requested two separate kayaks for our 9 and 10 year old boys - she still put them in a double - which for an experienced kayaker is fine but for two beginners is definitely more difficult to navigate through the mangroves. So - just a heads up for families -It's a beautiful place - just make sure your guide is family friendly (patient) and likes kids. This particular trip definitely felt rushed which was a major detraction from the overall experience.

educational and easy excursion

It was enjoyable to have such a close encounter with the environment around Key West. The kayaks were easy to use and a nice easy amount of exercise. The guide was very informational and made sure that everyone had an opportunity to interact with the sealife. Was definitely a highlight for my week in Key West.

Best activity in Key West. Fun and educational.

The teenagers and adults in our group all loved the kayak trip. The guide was phenomenal and genuinely interested in making this a learning adventure. He found and identified countless species and gave descriptions of their habitats, digestive and reproductive systems, and other detailed information. It was like kayaking with Bill Nye the Science Guy! We especially loved stopping on the sandbar to explore and find sea creatures to discuss. Every minute was fun and worthwhile.

Katie did a nice job of paddling to our level. Very good explanations of the fawn and fauna and interdependence. Nice eco-tour, and not a hard trip.

Mangrove Swamp by Headlamp
Mon, Jan 5, 09   5:00 PM jovita10 Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
I really enjoyed kayaking to bird island and then watching the sunset. Then we kayaked to a mangrove island and put on headlamps. It was spooky and fun. The bay we crossed was very shallow so there were few other boats or traffic. When we were in the mangroves we couldn't tell which way was out or see any lights of the roads or bridges around the area. Great fun.

Chad did a wonderful job of describing the environment and the animal life. Also, my wife needed assistance after getting stuck on a sand bar, and he was most helpful!

The highlight of the Florida Keys

I love seeing the "real" place when I go on vacation and not the tourist shops. This was it. Back to nature, REAL, and James was an awesome guide! We saw so many amazing things and the kids loved kayaking through the mysterious mangroves.
