Amazing kayak trip for the whole family
Mar 2021 • Family
Our family of four, including two kids 9 and 12, loved our kayak trip!! Our tour guides were knowledgeable and shared so many interesting facts of both the ecosystem and wildlife as it unfolded during our journey. We saw so many manatee and they were adorable!! The bay is so warm this is a popular spot for them to go. We also observed so many birds like osprey, herons, juvenile Ibis, pelicans, friggets?? Spelling.. Also, as we traveled through a canopy of mangroves, our guides shared cool stories of the ancient history of the natives that lived in the Weeden Island area. It was absolutely breathtaking, and some cute little crabs even made an appearance. Thank you to our tour guides! We all had a wonderful time! We'll be back to do it again next time we are in town!

Full of wildlife and knowledge
Feb 2021 • Couples
HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Jackie and Buck were incredible! We had such a blast, and within 20 minutes we had already seen sting rays, manatees, brown pelicans, and so much more. The mangroves were so peaceful, and how much we learned about them as well as the wildlife made the tour exceptional. I cannot say enough how worth it this tour was!

Our family of four just returned from the guided mangrove kayak tour. It was a fantastic experience! Jackie and Buck were exceptional tour guides giving us historical information, bird identification, and so much more. We hope to come back for the paddleboard tour of crystal river, but if not this trip, definitely next time! Highly recommend!

Best experience while in Florida!
Jun 2020 • Couples
First and foremost, we scheduled this not knowing what we were getting into. It was fairly inexpensive so we went in with fair expectations. Boy, we were pleasantly surprised! Buck and Jackie were splendid! We had so much fun with them! They were knowledgeable and so tolerant of all of our questions! We got to see manatees, horse shoe crabs, rays, and so many birds! They also took us to see ancient indian burial grounds! Wow! What an experience! 10 out of 10! We will be recommending this to everyone we know!

Thank you again Buck and Jackie! You both were a delight!

Jackie and Buck were great guides! Very knowledgeable of the wildlife and area and very friendly. They provided cold bottled water, sunscreen and sturdy kayaks. We didn’t see any manatees or sting ray, so birds were the only wildlife we saw.

Gorgeous Day on the Bay
Nov 2019
I took my 16 and 20 year old on the Mangrove Tour on Old Tampa Bay in the afternoon. It was such a gorgeous day. We saw a bunch of baby turtles poking their heads out of the water and the scooting back under when they saw us. Big silver fish jumping out and slapping back into the water, tons of birds and little spider crabs. We were not lucky enough to see a manatee (although Buck really searched for us). We had a great time paddling around and getting interesting tidbits from Jackie. Turns out she and I have a lot in common!! Really great time. They wouldn't let us carry a thing! Will definitely go out with them again. Thanks Jackie and Buck!!
