“Kayak the mangrove tunnels”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

Kayaking through the mangrove tunnels right near Robbie's was one of the highlights of our trip. Spectacular scenery. But don't forget the bug spray!

“Must do Beautiful time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2012 via mobile

We found this place while searching for something to do on vacation. We're from Mic higan. This was an amazing place to go to. Great staff, nice little souvenir shopping and the Kayak Shop was top notch. You kayak into beautiful shallow pools on your way to the Indian key which is good snorkeling and pier diving. If you want a nice relaxing beautiful view of the ocean this is the way. Also very nice to the wallet. Will definitely do again when the chance arrives.

“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2012

Randomly came across this place while driving to Key West. Neither my husband nor I had ever paddle boarded but I've always wanted to try. It was super easy and the staff was amazing and friendly. They went above and beyond by giving us the really nice boards (perhaps their own?) because they had rented all others out. I could tell they were very hesitant to let us newbies use them but so thankful they did. We saw two crocs right before returning the boards - a little scary but glad it was at the end of our trip. They also let us switch to a kayak for the rest of our time so that we could make it out to the island (because it was low tide they said it would be easier than the boards). Highly recommend this place!!

“Best kayaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

We had an amazing time kayaking here. During our trip we saw a baby shark, jellyfish, and two saltwater crocodiles. Not to mention the awesome tunnel through the mangroves. This was a great place to go with great service.
