I had my daughter in visiting from North Carolina and I wanted her to have an adventure that would be "above and beyond"..... Bill delivered! It was an AWESOME trip into the back country and the kayaking was AMAZING! Definitely will book again with Bill - first class all the way.

The guys that run this operation are top notch, probably the friendliest guys you will meet in the keys!! Chris was our guide and excellent. We have 4 teenagers and this trip was wonderful. A great mix of adventure, history and story telling by Chris and physical activity. Also brought Grandma and paired her up with our college age son.... More

We decided to proceed with the tour in spite of some ominous rain clouds. We're glad we did! The rain just added to the excitement. Our tour guide Chris was awesome! We learned some history on No Name Key. We would definitely do it again!

A wonderful combination of natural beauty and old stories of No Name Key island. Kayaking on the calm surface of shallow river underneath of low hanging mangrove branches was wow. And our tour guide Chris added a lot of stories about the island and its history, especially about Nicolas Mateovitch. He is very passionate about this old Russian settler, who... More

We did the ride out on the boat with two tandem kayaks. Spent 3 hours or so paddling No Name Key. Saw small sharks and tarpon swimming around. We planned to snorkel or swim but the water is very shallow. Stopped and had lunch in a need area. Kayaking through the mangroves and getting some shade was nice. The paddle... More

Our paddle trip was secluded and remote--and fantastic! We paddled through a maze of mangroves learning the history and environmental aspects of No Name Key. Our guide Chris was an expert--and had a true passion for the area. Recommend for adventurers who like to go off the beaten path.

Loved our time kayaking through the mangroves this morning with Chris. What an amazing tour guide. Tons of info and incredibly knowledgeable of the area, both historically and geographically.

We took a 3-hour morning kayaking trip with Chris. We were blown away by the experience. We have never kayaked through mangroves before. Chris is a natural storyteller and did a great job guiding while sharing stories. Fantastic.

If you love wildlife and you love water, this needs to be part of your next Keys vacation. Yes, it's off the beaten path but most great things are. Wonderful, knowledgeable staff will make you comfortable, even if you have never been in a kayak and the wildlife in this area is breathtaking. Just last week saw a spotted eagle... More

Bill, the owner, is very friendly. We did the sunset tour leaving at 6 pm with Chris, we were just the two of us with him, and we absolutely loved it. Don't hesitate to call before going, they do not stay there all the time. They offer a good choice of kayak, and we had one for the two of... More
