Went with capt. Evan on Patty C. Only one other couple so it was semi private. Capt Evan took us out to dolphins first and we saw a herd. Pretty darn incredible. Evan pointed out all the sea life and answered any questions we had. Very knowledgeable about marine life. Stayed with dolphins a while and boated to an area... More

My wife and I had the boat and Captain John to ourselves. It was an awesome time! Going where few boats can navigate, seeing the mangroves up close on the kayaks, and seeing the awe-inspiring underwater world while snorkeling. All of this, and with Captain John's knowledge and guidance, we learned a lot about the wild side of the Keys.... More

My wife, daughter and I took the 1/2 day Java Cat tour and it was the highlight of the week. We did and saw more on this tour than on the full day with a different outfit. Our captain was Bethany and she was truly fantastic. It was just us and a young couple and Bethany really tailored the trip... More

Wonderful kayak experience. Our guide was very knowledgeable, took the time to search for as many critters as possible and was clearly excited by each sighting herself. We saw two different turtles, many sponges and jelly fish, small fishes and a nurse shark. Our ride out to Geiger Key was right on time and the driver was also excellent and... More

A relaxing sail out to Mule Key where we boarded kayak's and took a mangrove tour. Bethany, our guide, was super friendly and knowledgeable. I've been coming to the Keys for more than 20 years and had never done a mangrove kayak tour. It was well worth it. I learned so much! We also went snorkeling and saw some smaller... More
