Awesome sunset and moonlight cruise!

The sunset and moonlight kayak tour by blue planet kayaks was a lot of fun. It's an experience of a lifetime. It is a little pricey, but definitely worth the money. Once the sun went down, it was so peaceful and majestic.

First time kayaking and thoroughly enjoyed it. The guides are very informative of the local sea life and fauna. Highly recommend for anyone visiting the Key’s.

Went on two kayak tours while on vacation in Key West, this one was the best hands down. From the location, to the tour guide, it was fantastic. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and was able to locate all kinds of marine life and birds. It was an experience of a lifetime. Highly recommend this tour.

One of the best parts of our vacation!

From a friendly front door pick up and drop off, our entire outing was fun, relaxed, and interesting. Our shuttle driver and kayak guide made us feel right at home and not at all like tourists. They were both super friendly and knowledgeable about Key West and the wildlife .

Our kayak guide knew exactly where to take us and we spotted heron, osprey, sea cucumbers, sea stars, jelliies, sea crabs, a sea hate, and a squid! Our guide was professional and had a great personality. And once we got back to shore water was awaiting us and we were taken right back to our bnb. A great time for sure!

Had a great time! Informative, beautiful! I will never look at mangroves the same way again. I know so much more about them now. Sarah was a great guide. The van came to the hotel to pick us up, we didn't have to worry about anything. We had never kayaked before they went over everything and everything was provided. Perfect!

Pleasant and educational

From the time we were picked up at our hotel until the time we were returned we felt as if we were being treated to a fun and relaxing trip. While it was a fairly windy day the guide ( Katie) made sure that we went at an easy enough pace for everyone and she stopped to explain the mangroves, showing the different sea creatures while telling us what they needed to do to survive.

Great Guide

Very relaxing and very informative. The guide had a friendly, laid back personality but, at the same time, he took his work seriously and worked extremely hard to assure that we saw everything we came out to see. He clearly knew his marine biology and explained a lot without sounding like a textbook lecture. Definitely the best excursion during our 7-day vacation.

Had a great time with James as our guide. This is the 2nd time I've gone on the moonlight kayaking tour and will be coming back to do a day time trip!

Great Tour

This was a great and unique tour of Key West that I think most tourists don't see. Our guide was fun and knowledgeable and did a great job of finding and pointing out the unique sea life of the keys. We got to hold sea stars, conchs, and even a nurse shark. It was a fun experience, well worth it. Just bring sun screen, you will be in open waters in full sun. Thanks Blue Planet!

Fantastic kayak trip Key West
Thu, Apr 24, 14   10:30 AM Tonyxmiller Unspecified Unspecified International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We booked the trip online only the afternoon before we took it. We were the only people on the trip, which worried me a little initially. But this concern was removed within seconds of sitting in our double kayak. I have paddled competitively before so was not worried about it, but my wife has not done much. We had a great tour. We were taken into the shallows and thru narrow inlets thru mangrove plantations. We saw fish, wild clams, star fish, birds... Amazing. I can't believe how quickly the 2.5 hr trip was over. There was no pressure to paddle but we were able to keep up easily. Frequent stops were made whilst the guide explained stuff. Dry bags were provided and we took our land cameras and used them frequently in the trip. I would whole heatedly recommend this to anybody. Being a left hander, my paddle was either straight or feathered only to the right. But this won't bother most people.

A must do if you like nature

Fun, educational, and amazing. However be prepared to paddle across wide and at times deep bodies of water. Kids may struggle when fighting the winds. After reading other reviews I wish our guide had been Chad. You might want to consider booking when he's the guide.

The Boca Chica tour was great fun. Our guide Sara was very accomodating and knowledgable, and was able to point out a variety of marine life. The trip throuhg the mangrove forest was relaxing and peaceful, and this was a highlight of our trip. We can't wait to go back for another.

Great tour of mangroves and ocean life
Fri, Apr 11, 14   1:10 PM Rick444 Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
This tour included parts inside the mangroves (where we went though passages only three feet across) and out on the open water. The two and a half hours included more real paddling than I expected -- it was a bit of a workout. The guide was fantastic at finding creatures (anenome, conch, etc.) which she would pluck from the bottom and pass around the group while telling us about them. Highly recommended.

Fun kayak trip!
Wed, Feb 19, 14   5:30 PM Rlshirley Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We booked the sunset kayak trip because it was something different and we really enjoyed it. One thing that made the trip fun was that it was at low tide so it was easier to see things in the water and for the guide to find critters to show. Because the moon wasn't too bright we were able to see the bioluminescence, which was really neat.

When we first met our guide James, I was a bit turned off my his abrupt (and I thought a bit rude) attitude but he did a good job during the trip so in the end it was fine.

You can either be picked up in the van or meet the van and follow them to the launch site. The van was really late maybe because they had to pick up a lot of people and it was ok to follow them because we were the only car but I could see if you had a lot of cars it would be easy to lose people. Seems like there has got to be a better meeting place closer to the launch site. The best thing about having the car is that you can just leave after and don't have to wait for everyone.
