A fun adventure!

This was the highlight of our trip...and trust me we enjoyed Key West thoroughly. Our group was comprised of three generations (my Mom, myself and my daughter). The scenery and the view are just amazing. What really made this trip different from other outdoor activities was Chris our guide. He was so low key, super informative, and even made my Mom feel like a great kayaker! In addition, the curb side pick up and drop off was an added bonus.

A Great Time On the Water
Sat, May 7, 11   7:00 PM surrency Female 40-49 Unspecified Couple on a Date
This was our first time to Key West and wanted to experience something new that we had never done before. Chad was our guide and he was wonderful! He was so full of knowledge about the waters and all that lived in it. We went for fun but ended up really learning a lot. I never thought learning about sea life could be so interesting.

After dark kayaking a new & exciting experience
Wed, Feb 19, 14   5:30 PM Suebrain Female 50-59 International Tourist(s) Individual
The after dark kayaking was a new and exciting experience for me, and one I would recommend for sure.

Blue Planet offered hotel pick up which I took advantage of, their location is quite a distance from downtown Key West. The dock area we launched from was very small, it took a while to get 10 of us in kayaks and on the water. Once we got paddling, our tour guide Jamie showed us many "sea creatures" , with care and expertise. We watched the sun set, then put on our head lamps and paddled easily across the bay. The manouvering thru the mangroves was a fun challenge. To me, the bioluminescent bacteria that light up like fireflies was the highlight, very cool!

Definitely something a little different to do in Key West, away from the crowds on Duval and a chance to learn and appreciate nature's show.

Fun, calm-water kayak trip
Sun, Feb 16, 14   10:30 AM sueb13 Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
Fun, calm water kayak trip with guide knowledgeable about local waters and marine life. Suitable for novice kayakers. That day the navy jets were training around Boca Chica lagoon, which made for a noisy trip... not my favorite thing, although others on my trip rather enjoyed it.

nice trip on the shallow waters of Key West
Sat, May 8, 10   1:10 PM subrizi Female 20-29 International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
The kayak trip is relaxing and easy, even for beginners. We saw many birds and some marine animals (snails, clams, anemone, crabs, small fishes, jellyfish). The guide was friendly and explained interesting facts about the habitat we were exploring. Kayaking around the mangroves following narrow paths was fun. On the downside there is quite a lot of waste (plastic, metal, ...) along the tour, I think it would be good to clean it up. Overall an enjoyable way to spend your afternoon.

We will do this again

We just did this last week and we strongly recommend the Sunset tour. James was our friendly guide and in spite of it being only 60 degrees and cloudy we had a great time. We didn't get to see a good sunset but once the sun was down all the critters came out. James was able to find dozens of different animals (conch, starfish, sea cucumber, crab, lobster, octopus, etc) for us to see and sometimes hold. It was a really unique tour and well worth the money. Bring a camera and enjoy!

Great experience

The marine life kayak tour was a very worthwhile experience. It was interesting and fun. The guide was very knowledgeable and personable. He searched for and found a variety of marine life that he scooped up carefully so we were able to look and touch. The kayaks were comfortable. The 2.5 hours stretched almost to 3 hours because none in our group wanted to leave! I would do this activity again next time I go to the Keys!

Informative and unique experience
Fri, Dec 25, 09   4:50 PM stelsey Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
I highly recommend this trip. This was the second year in a row that my daughter (a teenager) and I did this kayak trip on Christmas Day at sunset. Chris is an excellent and informative guide, and the sea life you see and views of the coast and mangroves provide a once-in-a-lifetime experience. And kayaing in the pitch dark through the mangroves is not something you will be able to do in too many places. (If you are very tall, though, watch out going under some of the low hanging mangrove branches!! The kayaking itself is not overly strenuous and the equipment is all very new and very easy to use.

Our guide for this trip was Chad. He really seemed like he wanted us to enjoy our trip, and watched carefully for any sea life that he could show us and that we could touch. He took us through many mangroves, and that was, by far, the coolest thing I have ever done on our many trips to Florida!

Fun Kayaking in the mangroves
Tue, Apr 10, 12   10:30 AM Sommerhalder Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
It has been such a pleasure!

As a first time kayaker I did not know what to expect... having my 6 year old daughter with me on a tandem kayak!

Instructions were clear and easy. As soon as we were in the kayak, we paddled away to the mangroves. So much to discover. We were shown all possible animals on our journey. My daughter was on a mission: a sea star. Not only did she see it but was able to touch it. Our guide made sure she would;) Thanks to Blue Planet Kayak Tours one dream came true. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. We will be back!

Do this if you get a chance. A wonderful experience. It was windy when we went but the kayaking was not hard work and it was so lovely to be out on the water to see the sunset, the sparkles of phosphorescence in the water and the "secret" passages through the mangroves

Easier than expected
Thu, Feb 3, 11   1:10 PM smith1745 Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
I had some concerns that my wife and I could handle two hours of kayaking, but the trip was easy. Our guide paddled gently and stopped often to point out wildlife. We really appreciated being picked up at our hotel. The Kayaks were in good shape and as comfortable as could be expected. After several days of walking around old town Key West it was a pleasure to spend some time with nature.
