To start the tour, either get picked up at your Key West hotel or meet your guide at the Hurricane Hole Marina, where free parking is available. Once at the marina, learn about the equipment and get safety instructions before following your guide on a kayaking tour into the mangroves.

During the tour, have the chance to spot local marine life, such as tropical fish, jellyfish, sea cucumbers, and sponges, as well as the sea birds that inhabit the area's mangroves.

You also learn about the geology of the Florida Keys and discover what makes the coastal environment unique from your guide.

The tour ends at the marina, or with drop-off at your Key West accommodations.
