“Nice time with Eco tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

We had a very nice experience doing sailing , kayak and snorkeling with Eco Tour. Johnny , our captain told us a lot of information related to the Eco system around the keys. The boat was comfortable, we were only 4 guests on it. Great time

“Best tour you will ever take!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

This could be tough to write without sounding like someone's relative or girlfriend because I'm going to lavish praise ... but it is well deserved! My husband and I did the Downwind Kayak Eco Tour with Bruce as our tour guide. Everything about this experience was in the perfect range from the service and friendly professionalism to the spectacular and fascinating beauty of the tour itself. Bruce is full of knowledge and energy but is laid back and friendly, we never felt rushed or like he was working. We felt like he was having as much fun as we were! You will see (and sometimes be able to touch) plants and animals that you rarely, if ever, have seen before including majestic ospreys and tiny sea cucumbers in crystal clear water. If you enjoy nature at all, this tour is not to be missed.

“Magnificent Tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Not only we were we blessed with a beautiful day to start with, but John was totally accommodating, informative and candid. Instead of going on a larger boat/tour we decided to go for the smaller intimate tour with only up to six passangers. It was a terriffic choice. We were able to learn more and get a better understanding of the ECO System that is Key West. This tour is a must do!

“We made the perfect choice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

It's hard to decide which tour to sign up with when you're not from the area, but after reading all of the fabulous reviews on Trip Advisor, we chose this tour. We were not disappointed! Captain John, you did a wonderful job providing information about the area. This was a very enjoyable tour that included a short sail, kayaking and some snorkeling. One of the main reasons we chose Java Cat (other than the reviews) was the fact that they only allowed 6 people on board! We've been on other catamaran tours with large groups before; we did not want that experience here. Thank you for your hospitality and sharing your knowledge and stories about Key West. We recommend Java Cat highly to others that would like to enjoy a relaxing day in the Keys.

Thanks again Captain John!

“Absolutely the best water activity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

We were totally blown away by Key West Eco Tours. John was a most engaging and informed guide who really helped us understand the fragile ecology of the Keys and the importance of the mangroves. The day was beautiful, the water was quite pleasant, the birds really gave us a show. We have done many different water activities, lots of snorkeling, but found this to be a most relaxing and enjoyable morning.

The "snack" provided was fresh and healthy, we were given top of the line snorkeling equipment, and learned so much about the habitat that I have a new-found respect for everyone who works so hard to keep the water and the environment in the Keys pristine.
