This was our second time with Tim. Our group was very small and the experience way beyond any expectations. This was excellent. We saw a dolphin and many other interesting sea creatures :) Kids (8 and 12) absolutely loved it. We will definitely do this again when we visit Cocoa Beach next time.

Trip was awesome. We saw ALL kinds of wild life and Tim was very prepared with water, ice, bug spray(but we didn't need it). The Kayaks he has are in great shape, easy to use and pretty comfortable. My wife and I took our 17 and 16 year old kids on this during our summer vacation. The length of time... More

We arrived at the designated departure point 10 minutes ahead of time. Tim was there and very graciously welcomed us. He gave a brief, but thorough, kayak explanation and we were off. During the trip he actively interacted with our 2 kayaks, explaining the surrounding vegetation and wildlife, and kept our 8 year old twins aware of their surroundings. He... More

Relaxing experience and enjoyable time spent with family during vacation in Cocoa Beach. Tim got it right from beginning to end. Well worth it!

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
