“Sunset kayak tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

Christina was an excellent guide. Our party of six enjoyed the mangrove tunnels. Very narrow. :). We Paddled out to the bay and got out and walked on the sand bar. She pointed out birds and other wildlife. Then paddled out further into the bay. No dolphin or manatee sightings though.

Thank you for your review Mary, and I'm glad you enjoyed your trip. I hope you'll come out paddling with us again, and we'll do our best to find some Dolphins and Manatees for you. As the water warms up a little more this time of year, we tend to see them more frequently. Thanks again, -Stefan

“It could have not been better!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

There are things one might expect from a kayak excursion: on time arrival, safe equipment, professional courtesy and then there are those extra steps like having waterproof bags, a prepared and informative guide and genuine genuine kindness. THAT is Kayak Excursions.

We saw manatees, lots and lots of dolphins and saved a froggy - it could have not been better!

“Just what we were looking for!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

With two other friends and a half-day to kill, I wanted so badly to fish this area before having to go home after a couple of days of meetings. We are do-it-yourselfers, but in this case with very little time, none of our own gear, and no advance planning. Charter boat options were very expensive and inflexible. Stefan at Kayak Excursions was easy to work with; he understood what we wanted and set us up at a location that was a bit further away from the usual location, but its where the fish were biting. (You can't beat timely, local knowledge.) Since we were relatively experienced, he checked us out on the equipment and safety procedures and we quickly set off fishing. Stefan provided all the gear we needed, and even had spare rod/reels ready if we broke a line or wanted a different setup. Our catch included a redfish and lots of speckled trout and ladyfish. Saw dolphins, manatee and plenty of birds as well. I highly recommend this company and this method for experiencing this beautiful area, whether sightseeing, birdwatching, or especially fishing. By the way, if you haven't fished from a kayak before, it is far more intimate being close to the water and the fish.

“great kayak fishing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

On very short notice, Stefan took three of us out kayak fishing on Estero Bay. The gear was clean and well-maintained, and the kayaks were well-rigged for fishing. Stefan was very friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. He picked a great spot for us to meet and put in, and put us on fish despite some challenging weather conditions. Highly recommended.

“Sunset Guided Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

Excellent trip, had Katherine as guide. She has a Master's in Marine Biology and knew ever bird, shell and tree along our path. Never had more fun looking at a tidal flat puddle. Neat traveling down a canal with Mangrove trees on both sides. Exciting when a brief evening storm moved through which added to the fun. Bring your camera. We left phone in car for fear of water, dumb! Missed incredible shots of birds skimming pool next to us. Bring polarized sunglasses so you can see underwater better.
