Kayak Kings Key West was recommended by a local street bike rental place and it was a great recommendation. The reservation was seamless and the employee who rented the kayaks and snorkels had excellent suggestions about where to paddle to. We spent 7 hours out on the water exploring, seeing cool fish and bird life and making memories!

We rented six kayaks from KayakKings last week when we were in Key West. KKings took us on the Mangrove tour and we played around in the area for 3 hours after. They were very friendly and kept their promises. We managed to see a Manatee swimming under our kayak too! Great value for money too!

Our two to three hour kayaking with Alex was terrific. Most of all it was fun. The location is in and around the mangrove trees. Suggest you wear a bathing suit or clothing that is water repellent, bring a towel and don’t wear shoes. The pricing is moderate, you’re going to spend two or three hours with a guide, we... More

I know there were several to choose from here but Alex did a great job with us. Wasn't sure what to expect and ended up enjoying our trip tremendously. We used tandem kayaks (our preference) and he guided us the whole way at a leisurely pace. Definitely recommending this in the future.

Well run operations, nice tour of the mangrove maze with good commentary along the way. The crew was super accommodating when a trip I had scheduled with a different outfit cancelled and I was looking for a last minute substitute. I had a great time and recommend Kayak Kings to anyone looking to see this aspect of the keys.

Such a wonderful experience! We took the three hour tour with Catherine as our guide. She was knowledgeable and patient as we traveled through the mangroves. With an hour to go, we decided to get a little more adventurous and visited a sandbar that had lots of interesting sea life. The best were the sea slugs and all the conch... More

Thanks to Catherine for the great tour of the mangrove maze. We had a larger group for the AM mangrove maze. Catherine and her team mate (sorry..I don't recall his name!) were both very accommodating. Catherine was knowledgeable and helpful and gave clear instruction to a group with varying levels of experience. I would recommend Kayak Kings without hesitation. Easy... More

Great sunrise paddle with Katherine through the mangrove maze. Katherine is a great guide and very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna of the keys. We were a group of women with varying degrees of kayaking experience and everyone gad a great time. The early morning paddle is a real treat with lots to see and very little boat traffic... More
