We had a great time paddling through the mangroves. The folks at Kayak Shack even hooked us up with a cooler for our adventure. If you find yourself at Robbie's or anywhere on Islamorada, check it out. They have great boats and terrific routes for any time window you may have.

Located at Robbie's (Mile Marker 77 of US-1), the Kayak Shack offers kayaks, paddle boards, and jet skis for use in the amazing waters of Florida Bay, and Atlantic Ocean. We've rented paddle boards from Kayak Shack whenever our adult children visit so they can experience first hand the amazing birds, fish, reptiles, and mammals that live in, and around... More

This entire area is great...especially families. We rented 2 double kayaks and headed off to Indian Key. Our kids are young so my husband and I did all the work ..... it took us longer than it would have if we had 2 paddlers per kayak but it was still close and very manageable. The staff was extremely helpful and... More

The Kayak Shack at Robbie's is the perfect place to spend the day on the water! This was our first kayak adventure and now we're hooked! Everyone there is so friendly and helpful. We rented for half a day-4 hours and paddled out to Indian Key Island - A Must See! - and then came back and did the mangroves.... More

OUTSTANDING service and advice from Mitchell! Had a GREAT 2 hour self guided tour. Saw dolphin, jellyfish, birds, and even an crocodile! Too windy (for us) to go out to the island, but the trip under the mangrove tunnels was simply BEAUTIFUL (and sheltered from the wind ! ) ... A must do for all ages and abilities !

Holy Cow, the things we saw today! We went out yesterday to do some kayaking and ended up booking the 2hr jet ski adventure package as I call it. Not only did we get to break up our 4 hour kayak trip but we also were able to plan our jet ski portion on another day. These guys were VERY... More

Led by our tour guide Mitchell we went amongst the mangroves into some very tight areas and saw juvenile sharks, birds, tree crabs, corals, etc. the manatees and crocodiles evaded us, but that's nature. Located at Robbie's Marina, a definite take while in Islamorada.
