Interesting trip out with Greg from Big pine kayak adventures. Had lots of fun navigating through the mangroves and Greg was very informative. Shame we didn't get to see much wildlife but still enjoyed ourselves. Would definitely put more bug spray on next time though!

If you're going to go kayaking while in the keys you want to do it here. My wife and I made a last minute decision to go kayaking and found Big Pine on tripadvisor. Bill was great in setting up a sunset trip for us with our guide Chris. Chris was outstanding. His knowledge of the area, it's history and... More

This is a must do while on the Keys. Our guide was Chris and he was excellent! He knows his history and is passionate about the area. You get to see a view of the mangroves like no other. You do not have to be experienced to enjoy this trip. Take water, sunscreen, insect repellant and a camera (in a... More

My family stayed at the Bluewater Key RV resort and we were told at the front desk that Big Pine would deliver kayaks and paddle boards right to us! Sold! Since it was the first time I had ever been on a paddle board, I was given a quick mini lesson as well. We had so much fun, that our... More

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
