This is all based on luck if you are looking for wildlife. We saw One manatee surface. One dolphin came up to our kayaks. Lots of birds. Mr. Ric pulled a horse shoe crab out of the water and let us hold it. 2 hours of kayaking. Breezy. Sunny. Wear SUNSCREEN and Hat!!! You will sign a waiver. Bring a... More

Awesome informative adventure! My 15 year old daughter's favorite parts were seeing a baby manatee right next to our kayak and exploring in the mangrove trees. Ric's encyclopedic knowledge of the flora and fauna made the trip fun and educational. Thumbs up!

A key part of Ric's approach is keeping the tour small; there were only 6 of us on our tour which meant it had a very personal feel and (I believe) allowed us to get closer to the wildlife. We had a fabulous morning tour encountering manatees which swam around and under our kayaks, even playing with the drag handles... More

This was one of the coolest experiences ever. Great value for $$. I had never been in a kayak before but it was easy to learn and I felt comfortable in no time. We saw Manatees and other wildlife and had a really great morning. Highly recommend. P.S. sunscreen sunscreen sunscreen!

We were lucky enough to be the only people on the tour and had a great time! Ric is knowledgeable and very friendly! We got to see dolphins feeding and a manatee swam right under our kayak. The whole experience was just wonderful and is defiantly recommend! But..... bring sunscreen!

What an amazing two hours! Ric was informative, attentive, relaxed and funny! He grew up in the area and so really knows what he's talking about. We saw two dolphins and 6 manatees during our trip through a wondrous waterway full of birds, mangrove tunnels and gorgeous scenery. Don't miss it!

If you want to get up close and personal with a manatee this is the trip. We had a small family group 4 adults and 2 children (both aged 5). The children loved the double kayaks. Ric the guide was fantastic and explained all about the habitat and wildlife. The trip took about 2.5 hours and you don't need to... More

Can't say enough about Ric's great attitude to make sure you enjoy yourself thoroughly while sharing the beauty of the mangrove islands. He is happy to go as fast or as slow as his guests want. Since I had very little experience kayaking he made sure I was comfortable and felt secure. The place was awesome with large areas of... More
