We had a morning 4.5 hour tour for a kayak, snorkel and sail but the water was 60 degrees that morning so we opted not to snorkel and our Captain Bethany made up for it with an extended kayak tour. The smaller 6 person experience was perfect for what we wanted - the boat was well cared for and Bethany... More

We had stopped in to see our good friend Bobby M at the restaurant at Geiger Key Marina when we came across Jeff at the paddle hut. After checking things out we decided to come back another day for a kayak trip out through Shark Channel. When headed out to the hut turn right at the Circle K on Big... More

We had a great time on this sail and kayak. Bethany, our captain was excellent. She was so knowledgeable about the wildlife in the area, and was so enthusiastic about seeing and describing it to us. She truly loves her job. It was a great trip, but really cold.not recommended for January in the future.

Five of us spent a Saturday morning in January kayaking through the Mangroves on the bay side of the Keys. Lisa was a terrific guide. She pointed out sea life - starfish, jellyfish, man'o war, vegetation, fish and birds. We paddled at a comfortable pace. She was always ready to answer questions about all we saw. We would definitely go... More

Our group sailed, kayaked, and snorkeled on our tour. We got lucky that the other people who signed up for the tour didn't show so we had a personalized experience! It was very relaxing and saw a decent amount of wildlife. Our guide was personable and had a lot of good information on the ecology of the area. Fantastic afternoon!

We had five girls in our party and decided to spend the day kayaking. We didn't see any wildlife and mainly kayaked in the Mangroves. It was nice but I don't think I would do it again. There was a lot of ducking, pulling on vines to move and a few kayak jams in the process of getting through. The... More

Thank you for going out with us. Unfortunately viewing wildlife in their natural habitat can be challenging at times. When we tell people about our trip we describe it as a 2 hour paddle through and around the mangrove islands of Geiger Key in shallow water. We see and rescue sea turtles all the time. Yes, we do see manatees... More

While in Key West, we took the kayaking tour offered by this outfit. We really enjoyed the outing. The staff was very nice. We had a small group....there was only one other man who joined our family of four on the kayaking tour. Lisa was our lead and she did a great job providing some information of the ecosystem as...

For the third year in a row, we experienced a great day using Key West Eco Tours. We always choose a different trip, and this year we originally booked the sail/kayak/snorkel tour, but wind conditions prevented us from going out on that day. Key West Eco Tour did an admirable job in re-booking our excursion (and prompting refunding us the... More

Chose to go with Key West Eco Tours after reading the online reviews. We're glad we did. It was a wonderful way to spend the morning, soaking up the quiet of the keys. Only a short drive north of the crazy of Key West, but miles away in terms of peace and tranquillity. It was a great way to start... More
