Wonderful Tour - Highly Recommend

I thought this kayak tour was just the mangroves. It turned out it was so much more. The waters were very shallow and we saw star fish, conch, hare, stingray, fish, etc. The guide was also excellent. He gave us knowledge about the mangrove trees and about all the wild life we saw. On my next trip to Key West, I will definitely do this trip again.

We were both a little hesitant about a kayak trip but with the direction of our guide, we had nothing to be concerned about. We had alot of fun, and our guide was very knowledgeable.

One of the Best Kayak Tours we have ever been on

The tour guide was awesome. He was a local Key west Native and grew up on the water. He knew everything about key west and the water. Got to touch a baby shark which was the best part and going through the Man groves was great! Everyone commented that the tour guides knowledge and personality made the tour amazing!

Evening in the mangroves
Thu, Mar 12  6:45 PM Barbliz Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We did this adventure 5 years ago and it was worth the repeat. The guide was better this time, pulling sea creatures out of the bay and passing them around, and rafting the group together so she could give a brief explanation of what was around us. The wind was a bother (15+mph), but it made for a good workout. Remember to bring cash for a tip.

I was a little anxious given my age to go on the kayak trip, but the guide (Katie) was great and I did a good job. Very proud of myself and I got to explore with a nice group of people. Thanks!

This was the highlight to our time in Key West. Our guide was very knowledgeable - She introduced us to the underwater world of the Mangrove forests, and we came away with a greater appreciation of it's spendor.

Went on this outing with adult children and their spouses. All thought was highlight of their trip to Key West. Some physical strength and endurance required. Learning about the mangroves was fun. Leader was knowledgeable.

not exactly what was promised but still cool
Mon, Feb 23  5:30 PM therumtum Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
The kayak they gave me was way too big for me, and they had smaller ones available. We never made it into the mangroves but just went around the island. Still saw cool stuff though. Also the guide kept us out late which would have been ok if my kayak was more manageable.
 
Blue Planet Kayak Tours responded:
First let me thank you for going out with us and we are pleased you found the marine life cool. It is true some of our kayaks are slightly larger than others as they are designed for stability. This is beneficial for fishing or larger customers our apology for not putting you in a smaller kayak. The reason we did not go into the mangroves is we couldn't. Very low tides prevented the guide from access to the creeks except for one which he by passed due to time constraints. The low tide helped him find the cool animals on the flats and his pursuit of these led him to run a little over time.

We got to hold a shark!!

Had a great time on the kayak tour. Saw a variety of marine life from cow fish to giant starfish to a various crabs and enormous sponges. Our guide was very knowledgeable and intent on us having a good time. He chased down a baby nurse shark and my girlfriend got to hold it...I was on camera duty. Overall had a fantastic time and highly recommend it.

Enjoyed the kayaking

I wish we had seen more wildlife. It was a bit more strenuous than I had thought it would be.
 
Blue Planet Kayak Tours responded:
It is unfortunate you did not see as much wildlife as hoped for. Conditions such as tide cycle and wind play a singificant role in encountering mobile animals such as fish and birds. Despite protection from the wind provided by the mangroves customers are committing to a 2.5 hr. paddle.

On windy days exposed shallow areas do require more effort and customers should be aware of this. Glad despite these comments your overall experience was positive.

Upclose and full contact with FL nature
Thu, Jan 29  1:10 PM pedenfield Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Chad's tour through some of the FL Key West mangroves provided an education of the area and afforded us to display how much we could/could not navigate through the mangroves in a tandem kayak. The tour and paddling was an excellent way to see some of the other water and fowl animals. The outting was terrific!!
