Whether you are looking for a skilled, experienced, and knowledgeable tour leader or kayak instructor, Susan is the "goto" person. I had the opportunity to tour the Rookery Bay Reserve by kayak led by Susan in this beautiful and peaceful sanctuary. I gained valuable knowledge about its history, the habitat, and the vast forms of life that inhabit the reserve.... More

It was with trepidation that I made my way to meeet Susan for my first Kayak experience. Was it going to be hot, uncomfortable and hard? No! It was none of these things. SW FL in July, and still we enjoyed cool breezes and saw beautiful birds, flying mullet, and crabs. Susan makes her tours interesting and invites questions. I... More

In my multi-media household it can be a challenge for me to find activities that everyone will enjoy. This two plus hours kayak tour was fun for everyone. Even though I am six months pregnant and had never seen a kayak up close I had a blast. Our tour guide Susan was very knowledgeable and had a way to entice... More

Right from the beginning I had a good idea of what to expect. Sign-up on line was easy, pre-trip communication was good, and the launch went off on time without a hitch. Susan, our guide, was very knowledgable about the area and the wildlife. The trip went just a little longer than expected, but we all enjoyed a cooling swim... More

Tour guide makes you feel at home right away and is so encouraging of the kids, especially the youngest ones. She is a wealth of knowledge and history about the rookery and its surrounding areas. The tour itself is very relaxing and paced by the group with ample time to top and snap pictures and learn some more! Price is... More
