More than a kayaking trip; we offer an Eco-Tour Experience! Glide across warm, crystal clear water only inches deep to the shelter of mysterious mangrove islands. Our guides are happy to explain this ecosystem's uniqueness in plants, marine life, birds and natural history.Let us catch marine animals only an expert could find for you to handle and photograph. Learn about egrets, herons and other birds roosting only feet away or prying the flats for food. Geared for any level of paddler, you won’t have to go far to see the hidden beauty that so many have called serene, enchanting, romantic and captivating. We take a maximum of 10 people per guide for a personal experience. « less

We originally had another company in mind for a sea kayaking tour while visiting Key West, but after seeing the brochure for Blue Planet in our hotel lobby and that they offered shuttling to and from the kayaking site, we called them instantly to book a tour. Our guide, Sarah, was amazing and took us through mangroves and out into... More

Chad was our kayaking host and he took us on an amazing trip through clear, warm waters and mangrove tunnels. When the sun set, he gave us each a headlamp and we got to experience a whole new set of organisms - including the dinoflagellates that bioluminessed as we pounded our heels on the bottoms of our kayaks! We were... More

My girlfriend and I first decided to use Blue Planet because of their very convenient pickup service they offered with their tours. The brochure said they offered small tour groups but since we booked it on Sunday morning it was just the us and the guide, which was perfect. He catered to what we wanted to see and stuff that...

Every aspect of the kayak tour was exceptional. The convenience of a pick up and drop off from the hotel, the friendliness of all staff, kayak quality and the expertise of tour guide Sarah. The best part was paddling in such pristine waters which enabled us to see varied sea life. Meandering through the mangroves is a magnificent wonder of... More

We booked a kayak trip with Blue Planet with my inlaws and two children (ages 5 and 7). They were more expensive ($50/person versus the $40 of other kayak companies I called). We were running late and they waited for us, which was nice. We drove to a shady, "industrial" part of Key West (lots of house boats) and kayaked... More

We did the nature tour and it was wonderful fun. Pickup was right on time and it was a really fantastic experience for us both with limited kayaking experience. The trip through the mangrove was especially memorable. Highly recommended!

My husband and I just did the trip in May. I can't recommend it enough for anyone who loves nature and wonders at the marvels that lie beneath the surface! We didn't get to dive because the visibility was terrible and did this tour as a back up plan. We are now taking the rest of the family back in... More

We arrived at the pick up point and was a little worried that I wouldn't know who would pick us up, so I called the office. They were very helpful. The Blue Planet van arrived right on time and Andy was a delight. He led us to the place with no problems. They offered us water and use of the... More

This company was absolutely horrible!!! We were told to meet at a parking lot a half an hour early. We were there on time and waited 15 mins. After we still did not see anybody we called the office and they told me we had to call the tour guide. I called the tour guide and left a message several... More

This review is both completely false and malicious. It is clearly stated where our meeting point is, what the tour time is and to arrive at the meeting point 35 minutes before the tour. If this were not the case why has this not been a problem for our other customers? In fact my driver called this complaining party 3... More
