After reading thru previous reviews I knew we definitely wanted to kayak with Tim and Fin Expeditions. Tim was a wonderful, knowledgable and funny guide. He definitely knows his stuff!! Make sure to book in advance or you will miss out. We did actually see a few shy manatee and kayaking thru the mangroves was cool. He provided frozen water... More

After reading several very positive reviews here on Trip Advisor, my wife and I decided to take a kayak trip with Tim when we took our grandson to Florida for a week. From the initial contact to the final goodbyes FinEx Excursions has been a fabulous experience. Can't say enough about Tim's expertise and knowledge of the surrounding wildlife management... More

Having never piloted a kayak Tim explains how to maneuver your vessel thru the water. The Banana River is very calm and there was hardly any wind the day we went out. It took me about 10 minutes to figure it out. Tim knows the water well and where to find manatees, etc.. If you are in Cocoa Beach and... More

We came down for our honeymoon the week of June 22 and our tour guide was Tim Chastain. He took a complete first time kayak user and made him into a confident one. I was so nervous and wanted to do good and he told me to have no worry and just relax and within seconds I was paddling everywhere.... More

Wonderful excursion with great guide. My wife and I and children (20's) had a great and informative kayak experience. Tim was very knowledgeable about the wildlife and the area and found several manatees that came close to our kayaks. Highly recommend to both locals and visitors.

We were in Port Canaveral for a cruise ship stopover and are so happy we booked a trip with Tim. All correspondence was timely and informative and the tour was amazing. We had a leisurely paddle and saw lots of manatees. Tim is a considerate and patient guide who had so much knowledge about the area. We would highly recommend... More

Saw lots of manatees, very close up. Kayaking isn't as easy as it looks on windy days. The mangroves are pretty narrow and smelly in the summer. Guide was great. Enjoyed it.

Me and my wife went on this Eco tour during our one year anniversary vacation. Tim was a great tour guide. He takes your safety and enjoyment serious. He is also very knowledgeable about the many different types of birds, fish and see creatures. We were out in the water for about 2.5 hours. During this time we saw 5... More
