Took a 3 hour sunset kayak trip with our guide, Chris! Thoroughly enjoyed our time. Chris has terrific stories and trivia about the area, ad will point out all the flora and fauna. We did a group tour, in which case they require at least two people to do it. We were lucky enough to go on a weeknight during... More

Quite the diamond in the rough. Chris, the tour guide, was super knowledgeable and made the tour more awesome then it already was. Bill runs a wonderful business. The scenery was something out of a magazine and seeing the different animals was out of this world. Highly recommended!

We even found a couple spots with lobster and caught our limit and had some lobster tails for lunch. That was awesome! Will... More

We took a kayak tour through the mangroves and had a fabulous time. Our guide was Chris and he was thoroughly entertaining. He set the perfect pace with periodic stops in the shade to see sights and tell us great stories about local characters and local history. The two and a half hour tour seemed to fly by. We would...

Ive been all over floirda traveling. Captain Bill far exceeded my expectations. If you are traveling down to the keys, Interested in a kayaking trip, or a guided tour. Call Captain Bill, He knows all of the best spots down there. I wont rent kayaks from anyone else. Not to mention the location is one of the best.

He was very knowledgeable. This was our first time kayaking and Greg did a great job proving instructions. I would recommend... More

I was grateful that he has good kayaks and gave us pointers as... More
