Great trip. Would recommend this to anyone. Great price for the kayak rental. Had a wonderful day with my girlfriend kayaking to Little Key first and snorkeling. Giant Iguanas were awesome. Then kayaked to Pinel for the afternoon. Definetly worth the money.

Our taxi ride from Orient Beach to Cul de Sac was about $15 and there were several taxis availble at the dock when we returned.
