Joe and Tortuga Jack picked us up at our hotel. They were super friendly and we had a great conversation on the way to Geiger Key Marina. Once there we were outfitted with our kayak and paddles, instructed on basic use and then we were launched into the water. Tortuga Jack was our guide and we went on a easy... More

Our guide and skipper on the Java Cat, John, did an excellent job showing us the ropes and explaining what we were seeing, from the red mangrove's desalination process to how sea cucumbers survive predators. We had lovely weather after morning showers and the day was delightful. This is a great, well-run trip for novices and those happy just to... More

We took the 1/2 day trip with Chelsea. It was awesome. We saw three sea turtles, lots of sharks & rays and lots of fish and birds. We kayaked around the mangroves and snorkeled over a shipwreck. We even saw dolphins. The curry chicken salad snack was awesome!

Our Captain, Kelsea, was lovely, energetic and fun. My two teenage sons and I really enjoyed the kayak and snorkeling tour organized by Kelsea. She really was eager to please and was so pleasant. We saw sharks, stingrays, dolphins and lots of fish and beautiful birds during our tour of the mangroves about 20 minutes offshore. Kelsea even heroically climber... More

Our SUP trip was a bit of a disappointment.The paddle-boarding was fun and our guide was very pleasant but either he wasn't very knowledgeable or he wasn't particularly interested in sharing his 'eco' knowledge. It was a little windy so the water was stirred up and he kept saying that normally the water was crystal clear and you could see... More

Thank you for going out with us. I am sorry to hear that your tour was not up to your expectations. It has been very windy here in the Keys for the past several weeks, which does affect the quality of the trip. The wind stirs the sediment up and reduces visibility. When we do have windy days during a... More

I was surprised by all the good reviews of this tour. The Java catamaran is an aging vessel and my kayak leaked. Captain John took us to Mule Key. We paddled around the mangroves, saw a few Pelicans and Cormorants. The guide was not well informed when it came to mangrove species. Altogether stuff I could have viewed on Key... More

It is unfortunate that you had a disappointing time on Java Cat. Normally Capt John does an excellent job and receives great reviews. He has been running kayak tours for many years in Key West, and has a great wealth of knowledge of the Mangrove Habitat. When you booked the trip you should have been told that we do not... More

Spent an afternoon kayaking off Geiger Key about 15 minutes north of Key West. Margot was our guide. Nice comfortable, sit-on-top kayaks. She was a great knowledgable guide. Explained about plant and animal life. Kept it very interesting. Didn't see any turtles, sharks of rays but still a great trip. Water was clear, shallow. paddling was easy. Out for two... More

We booked the Java Cat tour which was a charter of 6 people (only 4 the day we went) on a small catamaran. Our guide was John who was a font of information. We motored out to the mangrove islands and then kayaked in close for a beautiful, peaceful bit of paddling. Back to the boat and then some snorkling... More

We stayed for nearly a month and they have a great deal: $55.00 for the unlimited use of a kayak or paddle board. I took advantage of this deal--you can't beat it. Dave is extremely friendly, and I noticed that he gives instructional tips and advice on where to paddle depending on the tides. I didn't take the eco-tour with... More
