      Rent here for fun adventure!
      We rented the Hobi Sailing Tandem Kayak. This was so much fun. You pedal and sail - you don’t need to paddle but you can. It has outriggers so you will not tip over. This is the perfect boat for this area. Plenty of space for a good sail and opportunity to explore the mangroves. We saw dolphins! We thought 4 hours was too long - but the time flew by. This boat is so well designed - everything just where you need it. The boat was clean and in excellent condition. The staff was friendly and helpful. Plus the store is really good!

      JELLY TIME
      We had a great time kayaking thru the mangroves. Our guide was able to get us an upside-down jellyfish to hold. Pulling ourselves thru the small canal was adventurous.

      Amazing adventure.
      We had 1 day in the keys and decided on the mangrove tour. It was a fantastic experience. Everyone was great, from the store employees to the guides. Janet was our mangrove guide and she was outstanding. I will definitely do this again, perhaps a different season just to see the difference in marine life. On this trip we saw lots of fish and some birds.

      Ask for Connor
      Had a great time. Connor is one of the most, respectful, knowledgeable young men I have had the privilege to be my guide. Be sure to ask for him to be your guide. Everyone with the company was very helpful and professional. A great way to spend the morning.

      Great service and equipment
      We showed up last minute after lunch. They let us a rent a double kayak they had out at the State Park. Gave us a set of paddles and life jackets. The kayak was great and the service excellent. The map they provided was essential.

      Shane was a great tour guide. He was friendly and knowledgeable about the area and kayaking.
      Fun Kayak tour in John Pennekamp State Park! Don't forget your sunscreen but the guide provides everything else -- snacks, water, cold cloths to cool off with.

      Such a fun way to explore Mangroves
      We had so much fun!!! There were 12 of us on the tour and we snuck in time to snorkel. Kerri, our guide, was super fun and pointed out all kinds of fun things. The group got to hold a jellyfish and we saw crap, parrot fish, a stingray, and lots of coral. Snacks and water was provided and the guide took lots of pictures for us. Def recommend.

      Strongly recommended kayak rental shop! I had a wild request to rent a kayak into the sunset, way after they close — Pinche Thomas took the initiative, with his team they were able to over deliver. Pinche agreed to comeback with his wife and lock up after hours. Thank you brother for taking care of me! This Florida Bay kayak rental has a great water sports shop selection. I will be coming back for a paddle board rental and kayak tour! I strongly recommend this Florida Bay Kayak rental location! I recommend adding a sunset kayak rental in the keys as an option!

      Mangrove Tunnel Kayak Tour
      My wife and I ended up with our own private afternoon tour with Mike because there were no other takers. It was very nice of FBO to not just cancel our reservation. We spent two hours on the water and Mike was a very good guide. Snorkeling though the Sandy Creek was a nice bonus.

      Great service, good listeners, and wide selection set us up right. We were Looking for advice on buying a kayak. The team took us through the many types and upgrades. Once they knew what we needed, they steered us to a reasonably priced Pescador, helped us choose appropriate weight paddles and even strapped them onto our subUrban

    Nice guys and very helpful. Went with my 13 year old. Mangroves are pretty and was a good arm workout but the wildlife experience was just ok. Water is murky so couldn't see much detail.
    At the end we didn't appreciate that we all had to wait for them to load all the kayaks on the trailer which was probably an extra 20-30 of waiting around. A few of us carried the kayaks back to speed it up.
    Not a bad time but manage your expectations

    Thank you for your review and were sorry that the water conditions were not up to par. We try to find the best locations depending on the weather, and while that makes the paddling easier, the water is sometimes murky due to the wind. Thank you for the help loading the kayaks as well. Thank you again for going with us, and sorry you didn't see more wildlife!

    My wife and I had a wonderful tour though the mangroves. Mike was an outstanding tour guide. He was able to find beautiful "upside down jellyfish", which he pulled up on his paddle and allowed us to touch and hold, and a large starfish sitting on the bottom of the water. He pointed out for us two huge "prehistoric" iguanas, one sitting on the rocks and the other one way up high in the trees. Mike was also very knowledgeable about the vegetation and the history of the mangroves. It was a very memorable tour and the highlight of our entire trip to the Florida Keys.

    We thoroughly enjoyed this experience! We saw a manatee as soon as we got in the water! Our group had 12 people and was guided by Surina, who was friendly, funny and hospitable. The staff and crew at Florida Bay Outfitters provided great hospitality. The store also had a nice selection of souvenirs at great prices. They offered a 10% discount since we booked our activity with them. Surina was knowledgeable about the flora and fauna around the mangroves and the keys in general having grown up here for most of her life. She brought snacks, water, cold wet towels and dry towels. All you need to bring is a camera in a waterproof case. She took pictures and videos with her own phone and afterwards shared them with us. No charge! I would definitely book another excursion with this company if we had more time left in our stay.

    Matt is a wonderful, laid back tour guide. Knowledgable, attentive, but not intrusive. The Mangrove speaks for itself.
    My spouse and i are experienced amateurs. As seniors, we aren’t as strong as we once were. The rare windy day presented a small challenge—but the guide read it well and chose the channels that allowed us the the best exposure to the lush environment with the least resistance.

    Spent a lovely afternoon on the kayak tour through the mangroves at beautiful John Pennekamp State Park. We had a small group with disparate kayak experience and tour guide Suri did an excellent job of making it an exceptional experience for all. She made sure we didn't miss the various species of fish, including young barracuda and an up close and personal experience with some shallow water jellyfish. It was great way to enjoy the beauty of the mangroves, learn about the unique marine life all while having a great time.

    The tour itself was worth going on. I would recommend this vs exploring by yourself. It would be really easy to get lost in the Mangroves without a guide. The guide Andy seemed knowledgeable but we were in the back of the group and missed a lot of what was said.

    My biggest complaint and reason for the 3 stars was that the kayaks were all 2 seater. Apparently you had to call and request a single kayak if you didn't want to be stuck in the same boat as your friend. I would have much preferred a single kayak and didn't find out until it was too late that we had to share

    My second complaint was that another guest on the tour was a smoker and we got stuck behind him in the Mangrove Tunnels and kept getting his nasty cigarette smoke blown in our faces. I don't think this is the tour company's fault as you can't always control other people's behaviors but it did distract from the natural beauty of our surroundings.

    We try to accommodate all kayak requests, and I’m sorry that we were unable to accommodate you’re request for singles instead of tandems…so I will definitely look into this, Maybe if you can reach out to me..this will help…305.522.1300. As for the rest. We do try to discourage smoking on the tour, and there is no set order for the kayaks, so just letting your guide know might have corrected this problem. Sorry again. Thanks for the comments.

    Elizabeth was an amazing guide; she really made the experience!! My family and I had an awesome time and learned so much about the Mangroves and natural habitants in the area!! I highly recommend tackling the Mangroves with a guide to really get the full experience it deserves. My parents almost got a divorce after sharing the tandem kayak, but it was super entertaining to watch LOL!

    We have a group of 5, my husband and three children, ages 19, 21, and almost 23 (there was no option for family with adult children.) They recieved good reviews here on Trip advisor and I would agree with the positive reviews. Everyone was so helpful. My husband and kids are not the outdoorsy type and they all really enjoyed the trip. They were accommodating and knowledgeable. They had everything thought out. This was my Mother's day gift and I thoroughly loved it! I even got to see a manatee!
