We did an afternoon Java cat trip with Wendy and it was a perfect leisurely adventure! We were able to kayak, snorkel, relax, and have snacks and the trip felt so much longer than 4 hours. With only 6 people on the trip the boat is very comfortable and Wendy is super friendly and knowledgeable and a very competent lady!

I did the eco-tour with my family and loved it. The boat ride was smooth and they only take about 6 people, so it's pretty intimate and nice. Our captain, John, was very knowledgeable about the environments we were visiting. Took about 3-4 hours. Was able to tan on the boat, kayak, and snorkeling. Really recommend for small families or...

We thought this tour was so much fun and a class act! It is obvious that Wendy loves her job. She was full of knowledge about the refuge. We would love to come back to Key West to visit again. Highly recommended Key West Eco Tours.

Only 6 guests, no blaring music or buckets of beer - Quel relief. Thank you Key West Eco Tours for providing this quiet, educational, relaxing and comfortable tour option. Bethany our guide was excellent, thoughtful and attentive ensuring that all on board got the most out of the adventure, from those who had never kayaked or snorkeled before to those... More

As we are not the best swimmers or snorkelers, we chose to go on a kayak trip around the shallow waters of the keys - absolutely the highlight of our trip. The guides were terrific right from the pick up at the hotel. Highly recommend KW Eco Tours. Did not see any sharks or rays but the tour through the... More

We used TripAdvisor to choose this attraction, and we were so pleased with our experience. My daughter and I took an afternoon sailboat adventure that included sailing, snorkeling, and kayaking. Our captain, Bethany, was so knowledgeable and fun! She made our trip so exciting and knew what she was doing! No amateur there! We sailed with 4 other adults, so... More

Our family LOVED our day with Key West Eco Tours. A driver was arranged to pick us up at our BnB and drive us to the SUP area in the morning for the 11:00 launch. When we got there our guide, Jamie, expertly toured us through the coastal mangroves where we learned a lot about the area. The driver then... More

Just book it! My girlfriend and I just got back from keywest and this was one of our more memorable days! Kelsey was our captain and she did an amazing job all around!
