This was our second time renting from "The Kayak Shack" at Robbie's. On our previous tour in September the water was much warmer and were all up for the jet skiing tour with snorkeling. Our most recent visit was mid January and my wife, 8 year old daughter and I again rented jet skis but this time we opted out... More

Went to rent a Kayak at this place and our first meeting was with a young man with a crewcut dark hair. Very unfriendly. Then we met Vincent. He was wonderful. He went above and beyond to make sure we had a great experience. He explained everything to us and told us we had the kayak till 5:00P.M. We went... More

I knew we wanted to do some kayaking while staying in Islamorada and I'd found this place online. I assumed we'd want to kayak out to Lignum Vitae and Indian Key. But after hearing from the staff about the mangroves, we decided to start with that. Boy, are we glad we did! It's amazing!! It was even peaceful most of... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. My wife and I and two young daughters kayaked out to check out Indian Key Island and also the mangroves. A lot of fun. I'd probably paddle board next time but that's pretty tough to do with small kids.

We spent a day kayaking thru the mangroves and out to indian key. We loved the mangroves. Peaceful and lots of wildlife. There is a small aligator that suns on a patio you can get right next to. We couldnt find much good snorkeling around indian key though. Dan was awesome and very helpful, he gave awesome directions so we... More

We were lucky enough to bring our large group of 25 students to the kayak shack. After guiding trips like this for a while, I have come across bad outfitters and great ones; The Kayak Shack is a great one! Not only was the price right and the boats really quality, but Vince and Paul were extremely knowledgeable and polite.... More

I went out twice in the past week. Vince was super helpful to get us set up with paddleboards and kayaks, and gave a great description of where to go and what we could see.
