My family (all eight of us) range in age from 7 to 69. We all enjoyed the Ecotour so much. We all highly recommend it for all ages.

A beautiful water excursion!

This kayaking trip was a peaceful way of exploring the ocean eco-system of Key West. I loved seeing the roosting area at dusk for the local birds, while continuing into night fall, observing the fascinating incubator and it's inhabitants. The grasses and mangroves provide a haven for the most interesting creatures in plant life , sea creatures, and even delicate little fire flies. I loved this trip because it is such a refreshing diversion from usual tourist activities. I strongly recommend this activity for young or old.

Our guide James was great, we were able to see a lot of interesting things that if you went out alone you would overlook.

I was worried that I wouldn't be able to keep up or have the strength to do it for the length of the trip. I was worried for nothing. This was easy and enjoyable! My 5 year old had a blast looking at all the different marine life. We all did!

Good information on the natural side of the keys

I found the gear to be in good shape and the guide to be knowledgeable and very patient. Offering a ride from the hotel is a nice feature. And although it was windy and chilly the experience was all around very enjoyable.

Great family activity

We were a party of 6 adult family members. All. Couples. We used tandem kayaks, as recommended on a previously read review. Our guide was informative and entertaining.

We enjoyed the tandem kayaks. No one had to work too hard.

We had fun and learned a few things.

Wonderful way to enjoy the water

We don't enjoy motorized boating and wanted to get out on the water although we are novice kayakers. Had a great time, liked the information about flora and fauna and liked seeing all the sea creatures. Would definitely do this again!

Surprisingly Enjoyable

We decided to do this tour at the last minute on the advice of our hotel concierge and glad we did. We expected to do a lot of paddling around but spent most of the time cruising the mangrove islands and streams, stopping, viewing and learning about the interesting marine life James, our guide, was finding all over. We found the kayaks easier to handle and dry compared to our prior canoeing experiences and my old biology interests was rekindled by our guide's professional knowledge of the plant and marine species around us.

This is a get your money's worth, non-commercial/high overhead production, that included everything such as water and transportation between our hotel and the dock in the ticket price. We are looking forward to doing their night tour on our next visit to Key West.

James was Awesome!

We had a bit of wind and had never kayaked before our tour. James did a great job encouraging, redirecting and waiting for us. His description of the mangrove was informative, but the things he picked up from the water were what made it great! I won't spoil the surprise, but it was the best thing we did on vacation. Next visit, we'll do the night trip for sure.

Kayaking in paradise.

Although I would say August is probably a death sentence to sit in the sun for two hours it was worth it. I'm from south Florida and the kayaking is ok but nothing like the keys. The water is perfect, the boat traffic isn't a problem. The tour guide Chris is great. Bring lots of water and an energy bar.

THE BEST ACTIVITY WE DID ON OUR FLORIDA VACATION!
Tue, Apr 1, 14   6:45 PM swight01 Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
First of all, my overall experience around activites, restaurants and other tourist stops in Florida was one of mediocre to poor service. Doesn't Florida know that it survives on tourism?! Refreshingly, this was not the case on the Blue Planet Moonlight Kayak tour! The service was examplary from start to finish! I flew into Fort Lauderdale with my children (age 11 & 14) to spend some time in the Lauderdale area and in the Keys with my children and my niece (age 26). Of all the activities that we did, this was not only the best, but also the least expensive major activity we did during our 10 day trip. Other activities (including dolphin viewing, boat rides, snorkeling, airboat ride with multiple alligator sitings) were good, but this was by far the favorite of everyone in our group. We had all been paddling (at least canoeing) before, but my daughter had never kayaked before. This was not a problem. With minimal instruction, anyone can kayak. Our guide, Katie, was outstanding. She led us on a tour that lasted a total of 2.5 hours. We paddled out into the ocean to watch the sunset. On the way out, she spotted, picked up and passed around a large starfish, several sea cucumbers and lots of conch - alive, dead and dead but inhabited. Katie also had a small net to pick up creatures that couldn't be picked up and passed with bare hands. After adding a light to the back of each of our kayaks and providing each of us a headlamp, Katie then led us into the mangroves via a beautiful trail that wound through the trees. There we saw small crabs on the trees, weird jellyfish, and a variety of other sea critters. We even turned out our headlamps for awhile so we could see the bioluminecent organisims in the water that lit up like fireflys in the sea! It happened to be beautiful clear night that was awesome for star gazing as well! I would highly recommend this adventure to anyone who can get in and out of the kayak! Honestly, this was something that I never would of thought of doing but turned out to be a truly remarkable experience with a truly remarkable guide!! DO IT!! YOU WON'T REGRET IT!
