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

The two hour paddle was relaxing, enlightening and educational, getting a close up view of marine life in and around the mangroves without the sound of boats or... More

Our tour was led by Captain John, who not only made the day fun but knew so much about the natural environments surrounding the keys that we learned a ton! The mangroves were awesome and the snorkeling was beautiful. Would highly recommend this tour as a "must-do" when visiting Key West.

Wendy was our captain and she was awesome. She took us to a great place for kayaking as well as another great place for snorkeling. It was not crowded and the weather was great. The light lunch and drinks were also very good. All in all we had a wonderful family outing and would certainly recommend this tour and Captain... More

We booked a morning kayak tour and it was amazing! Jamie our guide was so nice and informative. She went out of her way to point out and show us many plants and animals. Don't book with anyone else. This company is top notch and professional.
