Great way to experience Key West

Great way to get to know what is around you in Key West.

Opted for the two person kayek which was useful to chat with your partner as you explore the different areas and follow your guide.

Certainly make sure you keep warm with a few different layers of clothing, ideally, wear some waterproof materials. We got caught with a nearby boat that generated waves that went over the kayek and we got wet, but all apart of the experience.

I would certainly recommend this activity. Enjoy!

The eco-kayak tour was great. I recommend it highly. Chad was very knowledgeable and friendly. It's amazing to see him standing in his kayak looking for creatures on the bottom.

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.

A Natural Treat

Chad is very knowledgable about the local ecology, birds, and other wildlife. He also has a good sense of humor that makes the excursion both informative and fun. It was especially nice to be out on a warm night with a beautiful sunset and calm waters!

Great Break from the Craziness of Key West

A chance to slow down and see the natural side of Key West with a knowledgeable guide. Had hundreds of water birds fly over head as they were heading to nest for the night. Had the fun of navigating through the dense mangroves. Kayaked at night and saw many water creatures that I haven't seen in their natural habitat before.

Great tour

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our kayak tour. Our guide, Andy, was very knowledgeable about the mangroves and surrounding area. Although we did not see manatees we were excited to see a beautiful starfish, sea urchin, sponge and got a history lesson of the mangroves. This was a leisurely stroll on the water. We had a wonderful relaxing 2.5 hours on the water.

The highlight of our trip

My mom and I had a wonderful time kayaking in Boca Chica Bay with James. He was a fun guide to have with a good sense of humor, a wonderful story teller and great knowledge about the water and the creatures. We have recommended this company and especially the sunset and starlight tour to many people on our trip.

Loving the Mangroves of Key West
Thu, Dec 17, 15   1:00 PM Jmgilbert Female 50-59 Combination Family Without Children
We came back for more with Blue Planet Kayak this year ( we have done the night/sunset one and the daytime one in past years). I am a painter of mangroves and oceans, and love to learn about and experience the beauty of the marine life at Boca Chica. Our guide Chad always has more information to share each time, encouraging questions along the way. We invited adult family members to join us this time and they absolutely loved it. We will be back next year, hopefully with time to do the night time and the daytime tours this time. What a fantastic day we had together on the water and in the mangroves!

We had a lot of fun on our trip to the Mangroves

We had a wonderful trip in the Mangroves of Bolsa Chica. We have been on kayaks before so it wasn't a problem. We do think it is important for someone to have some experience before going. Some of the people in our group were quite inexperienced and there were a couple of issues that should have been resolved before we left the marina. As I said, our trip was good but not some of the people who didn't know what they were doing.

it was ok
Wed, Dec 2, 15   1:00 PM shelw64 Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
I would have preferred to have the tour take place in a less commercial area. Most of the time, we were in view of warehouse , highway, and marina. It was also a bit weird to have the guide meet us at a park in a vehicle without a company logo. The person I spoke to on the phone didn't tell me the location was a park, and we had a little trouble finding it due to this fact. The guide was good, though.

Great kayaking adventure through the mangroves!
Thu, Nov 26, 15   10:30 AM ntfromnyc Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
What a great trip! We launched from Stock Island and headed east to the mangrove islands near Boca Chica Key. We paddled through the islands, using the natural channels created by the mangrove stands. The guide was a very informative naturalist - learned a bunch about the mangrove ecosystem.

Hints. I took along my good camera. Blue Planet will lend you a waterproof bag for such items. I really needed it - the weather was very windy and there was water splashing as we paddled across the bay. If you are thinking of going with someone who does not paddle well, you can request a tandem kayak.
