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.

We call the day before and got a reservation for 9am (I would highly recommend the morning tour because it can get hot). We were geared up and on the water by 9:15. Greg, our tour guide was awesome. 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

Tour was with Jay, who was friendly and knowledgeable about kayaking and the area. The creek through the mangroves was really an amazing experience.

Bill was great, he met is on short notice and got us geared up for our adventure in no time. We really enjoyed his suggested route to no man key thru the secret creek. Finding the creek was a bit challenging for us, going thru if with mostly arms instead of paddle was a very interesting experience. The lagoon was... More

My two boys (ages 9 and 11) and I went kayaking with Chris and LOVED IT! :-) Chris told us all kinds of good history stories about the areas that got the boys thinking about treasure and included lots of eco/nature information. We loved going through the mangroves. Had such a great time that we did the tour again later... More

We took a 3 hour kayak tour with Kasey and has a great time. Saw plenty of wildlife, kayaked through mangroves, and learned some history of the keys. Price is very reasonable for the keys and for the experience you get. Would recommend!

We took a kayak tour at big pine island. Our guide Chris was excellent. It was the first time Kayaking for me and my wife. Chris gave us enough time to adjust, he guided us at a pace we were comfortable at. He shared lots of interesting information about the area, about wildlife and surroundings. He took us through labyrinths... More
