I would not recommend this tour for a family with small children or anyone who is not in good shape. You have to row across the ocean about 1/4 mile. If the wind is up or the waves are up this will be a challenge. The mangroves are in their natural state with just a small amount of room to get thru. You literally have to pull yourself thru on the branches as there is little room to row. It was a fun trip however I would like to do a tour in Key West to have something to compare it to.

We arrived for our ten I clock guided tour, really all looking forward to it. When we got there, it seemed that Bill had forgotten to write us into the schedule (I called to book a week ahead). No matter, the nice woman at the desk said she'd call a guide who could arrive in 15 minutes. After a 45 minute wait, we inquired when the guide would arrive. Apparently the owner decided he didn't want to send a guide for just our family - our only option was to wait an hour and a half to join the tour he had remembered to book, which we couldn't do. They offered free kayaks to take out but with a small child and no knowledge of the area, that didn't seem like a great idea. I'm sure this would be a great trip, but unfortunately we'll never know. We all make mistakes, but I am upset that even with another guide available the owner wouldn't honor our reservation. Just so disappointing, I was really excited about this tour.

My 2 friends and I had a fabulous trip with Captain Bill last week! We were scheduled to go with Chis, but he had an emergency and Bill made sure we got out for our scheduled trip. He is extremely knowledgeable about the plant, animals and geography of the area and answered all our questions. We saw many birds, several different kinds of sharks and stingrays, to name a few. He really adapted the trip to what we wanted to do and the conditions, which is not always the case. We all highly recommend anyone to use his tour company.

Literally the best kayak tour we’ve ever done! We did the tour where the backcountry custom tour and it was just phenomenal. Our guide Chris was amazing. He was very knowledgeable about everything so we learned a lot while on this trip. We saw SO Mach wildlife it was insane. Barracudas, 3 different types of sharks, sea turtles, sting rays and sooo many cool fish! To finish off our trip as we were pulling back up to the marina we got to see an eagle ray jump so high out of the water. It was just the perfect ending to our tour. I couldn’t have been happier the way the day went. Highly highly recommend!!

Fantastic tour with Chris ad our guide. He is highly knowledgeable about the flora and fauna of the area. Four in our family with two more couples made the trip very personalized. I would highly recommend this place to any one looking for a quiet, eco friendly light carbon foot print tour. Thanks Chris!
