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

Very nice area to Kayak. If you've never kayaked, it's a great trip to try out. If you have kayaked, you'll still enjoy a relaxing ride through the mangroves. Ric knows the area well and doesn't take big crowds out. Very personal and interesting.
