What a great experience. The tour was very educational and fun, we got to see lots of wildlife and learn about everything as we paddled along on a beautiful day. Everyone in our group can't wait to go again!

We had a beautiful kayak tour with Connie on 23/03/18. We had to actually reschedule our tour from two days before due to high winds but Connie was great about contacting us and making a new time that would work before I had to leave...More

My experience with Connie started before we arrived. She was pro-active in reaching out to share information after I had called and not left a message. She talked through the options available and I booked over the phone. On the day of our tour, we...More

We did the estuary kayak tour with Connie as our guide. She began the experience by being coldly patronizing from minute one, and devolved to outright rudeness soon thereafter. We were six adults being spoken to like little children. Even getting past that, the tour...More

We kayaked Alligator Creek and had a lovely time. Connie is very knowledgeable and I appreciated her respect for the animals we saw, making sure we did not disturb them.

We spent a three hour kayak tour with a most informative guide, Connie, giving us a comprehensive understanding of the estuary system surrounding the manatee habitat. The embellishments went beyond just the manatee's movements, and included information about the flora and fauna, aviary and reptile...More
