My family really enjoyed our time kayaking through the mangroves. They do a wonderful job of making you feel comfortable at kayaking, especially for beginners. I brought my three children, 15,13,9. It was nice to do something out in nature and away from the chaos of the theme parks. Highly Recommend! FYI- bring sunscreen.

I'm from Minnesota and have only been to Florida a few times, and every time we have stayed in Orlando for the theme parks. This year on our Spring Break trip we ventured to Cocoa Beach for this kayak tour and it was AMAZING. I love animals and it was so cool to see more of Florida's wildlife. Our tour... More

Great time! Worth booking. Family really enjoyed the afternoon. Enjoyed seeing manatees in the wild for the first time. Kayaking thru the mangroves is beautiful. Tim is an excellent guide. Would book again!

We have been on a few mangrove tours in different places in Florida and this was definitely the best! Tim is a kind, friendly, passionate guide who goes out of his way to make sure everyone in the tour is included in the group. He knows everything there is to know about the wildlife, plant life, and environment in the... More

We had a great time with Tim on Wednesday April 8, 2015. The kayaks we used were very stable for novices. Tim is very knowledgeable and provides plenty of education on the ecology, flora, fauna, and history of the mangrove jungle. We observed dolphins, manatees (sea cows) including babies, Blue Herons, a Green Heron on its nest, and Ospreys fishing.... More

Our experience matched what everyone has said in their reviews. Tim was knowledgeable, patient and safety conscious. Would easily do again and recommend to others. One tip - make your reservations early. Don't expect to decide to go the same day. He keeps his groups small high adds to the quality.

We were on the Norwegian Breakaway cruise and booked this kayak trip after all the good reviews. We were so happy we did! The kayaking was so peaceful and yes, we did see the manatees. Tim was very knowledgeable and considerate to all. We took a shared taxi to Ramp Road, which cost $10 pp. After the kayaking, we walked... More

We had a great deal of fun hunting manatees! We found quite a few and one even surfaced right next to me, eliciting a surprised shriek that my family (and everyone else on the tour) will not soon forget. But what a treat to see one so close. It was a lovely day and we enjoyed learning about native Florida... More

This was a great two hour tour viewing a manatee, seeing birds and following (at a safe distance) a group of dolphins. It was great to go through the mangroves as well as the open bay area. Our guide was excellent and had great knowledge of the area.

I booked Tim's Kayak Tour now twice and was both times very excited. The nature is just beautiful and we saw both times Manatees (really close!!) and Dolphins. Of course, nobody can promise to see them, but Tim knows the right spots to go. I enjoyed it very much!! Thank you Tim!!
