Educational, fun and safe!

Second time on Boca Chica tour. Very windy day, but even this grandmother was successful at paddling. Jim was our guide for the 2.5 hour tour (as well as last time). He is expert in paddling, finding interesting and plentiful marine wildlfe and can name and describe their every biological attribute. His dry sense of humor combined with a lifetime of experience make him a very good leader both in terms of safety and knowledge. He was also very kind in helping me and my "chubby middle-aged" body in and out of the kayak with dignity. The owner (Chad) is also very good and my pre-med daughter and I had a wonderful time as well as learned much, including environmental info. Kayaked w others, but recommend this outfit.

Guide was a little grumpy but overall it was fun

I think the grumpiness of the guide stemmed from the fact that we were the only two on the tour and booked it at 11 the night before so Chad came in thinking he didn't have any work that night when he, in fact, did. Still, that wasn't our fault. We had fun despite his grumpiness and I recommend the tour generally.

Interesting, beautiful & fun

Our guide (James) was very knowledgeable of the marine life he found. He had a great sense of humor and a passion for what he does. I've always wanted to take a kayak tour and this did not disappoint. And having van service just topped an already amazing experience. Forget about the glass bottom boat, this is the best way to see marine life up close.

Excellent tour with a knowledgeable

I took the tour with two fourteen year olds who thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The tour offered a beautiful location, knowledgeable guide (certainly knew his biology and botany), and easy kayaking. Well worth the money. I wouldn’t hesitate to do another tour when I’m back in Key West.

We saw a lot of really awesome things. Our guide, Chad, was friendly, knowledgable, and informative. He found things for us to look at that we would never have seen otherwise. He moved at a pace that was perfect for seasoned pros as well as kayaking novices and made sure everyone got to see what he found. Even though my sister and I have never been kayaking before, we didn't feel as if we were slowing him down or being a burdon to the tour. We had an excellent time!

WOW My husband and I, along with 4 other adults, went on this tour.

It exceeded our expectations. James was our guide, and was a very knowledgable . We saw more "wild life" than what we expected. You will not be disappointed.

We really enjoyed the sunset kayaking tour. The tour guide showed us a variety of wonderful marine life, and we were able to interact with some of them. We saw octopus, starfish, sea urchin, lobster...just to name a few. I definitely recommend this tour to anyone who is adventurous and loves the outdoors!

Had a fun trip. Great scenery, and was introduced to marine life that I'd never seen before. Night trip through the mangroves was an incredible, and challenging experience.

Very Informative

Great kayaking trip in the shallows and the mangroves. Learned a lot about all the life that is living right beneath the waters that I have traveled over so many times. Great all around trip for those that enjoy the nature side of key west as opposed to anything motorized. You will learn a lot and hopefully see a lot in the two hours you are out on the water. Be sure to bring sunscreen.....

This trip was fabulous and although I originally wanted to do the morning trip this sunset one was even better than I expected. Loads of fun, very educational and not difficult even for the biggest couch potato.

Very Cool!
Wed, Feb 27, 13   5:30 PM Kitzkamp Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Individual
I took an evening venture and that turned out to be so cool! If you are going with someone, you have to option of going in a tandem kayak, which makes the paddling a little easier. Unfortunately, it was cloudy so we didn't get a pretty sunset and it did sprinkle in us, but no one minded. The water that we paddled was shallow (3-4" to 3' deep). We were provided with head lamps, so once it got dark we really got to see some awesome things like upside down jelly fish, sea snails, sea cucumbers, tree crabs, oysters that grow in the roots of mangrove trees, the fluorescent orange eyes of tiny shrimp, etc. This was my first time kayaking and I would definitely do this again!

Great experience, no "Romance" involved!
Wed, Jul 14, 10   7:15 PM kirbyabby Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
My children and I wanted to go kayaking, so given the heat of July days this was a fantastic option. My 14-year-old son was a bit concerned about the "romantic" aspect of this tour, but Blue Planet assured me it was only romantic for those who wanted it to be! Our guide was very knowledgeable about the Keys and the sea life -- he spotted a baby stingray and octopus, sea urchins, a sea cucumber and a large conch. The sunset was stunning, and it was really cool when we put the headlamps on for the return trip. I would highly recommend this excursion for someone who wants an out-of-the ordinary experience!
