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

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!

Bill, the owner and expert keys naturalist, rented us two double kayaks and boated us out to don quiote key to paddle back the six miles to his dock. Got a great primer in keys natural history, saw three dolphins and spent ten minutes playing with and watching them, and even saw an eagle ray leap (breech) out of the... More

I rented two kayaks from Bill for the week we were in Cudjoe key. They were excellent quality craft and Bill delivered them to our cottage. My boys and I had a great time with the kayaks. We even found a couple spots with lobster and caught our limit and had some lobster tails for lunch. That was awesome! Will... More
