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

Fantastic! Bill and First Mate Scupper took another guest and I on a terrific adventure that included navigating mangrove tunnels (who needs a... More

Our family spent the morning with Capt. Bill exploring the shore, Mangrove stands, and tidal marshes of No Name Key. Bill provided a great deal of history, the ecological impact of the region, the significance of the ecosystem, as well as identification of wildlife. We saw many birds, horseshoe crab, mangrove snake, nesting areas, and fish. For all you geocachers... More

I was in the Keys solo wanted to go on a guided tour. Glad I picked Big Pine! I really had a great time with my guides Sarah and Jay. Sarah led the group and her passion and knowledge of the area really impressed. The adventure through the mangroves was the best part. I even had lunch and a cold... More

Capt Bill was a fantastic guide! There is nothing like seeing a Logger-head turtle, Bonnet head shark and stingrays out in the wild. The waters were crystal clear and he was very informative. He told us how to figure 8 the island according to the current which was an easy paddle. While traveling through the mangroves we saw many different... More
