We did paddleboarding for the first time here. Such a great time! As first timers we were a bit apprehensive of going out for 2 hours but our tour guide Mitch helped us feel comfortable standing up on the board & paddling the day away. We saw some cool sharks & fish & a lot of jellyfish. Mitch was amazing... More

My husband and I stopped at Robbie's to feed the tarpon and stretch our legs. We ended up on a two hour jet ski tour all around the upper keys. It was awesome and well worth the money! We stopped to snorkel by the mangroves at Shell Key and also at Alligator Reef, where we saw a sea turtle! We... More

The Kayak shack is great! We went there to rent a double kayak and Mitchell was who helped us was great. He gave us a cooler, so we could take water and beer with us to Indian key. We were the only ones an the island and could explore them ourselves. I would recommend the kayak shack to everyone who... More

John and his crew at the kayak shack are THE BEST! Whether your an experienced kayaker or new to the sport, they will set you up with great, quality equipment, and some of the easiest - but also most beautiful - kayaking in the keys. We went out for a sunset kayak last weekend around Lignumvitae key and saw sharks,... More

I hesitated to spend the money for a two hour guided jet ski tour, but when I got back to the shop, I felt like I should have paid more. What a fun two hours. Our guide was great and gave us a diverse experience. We went back the next day for kayaks through the mangroves.

Fantastic 2 hour tour of Islamorada with Jason from the Kayak Shack. Great safety overview and practice in the water before the tour began. Jason was superb with showing us around the island. He's a great tour guide and very helpful! Highlight was seeing dolphins playing around. That never gets old! Definitely would recommend the Kayak Shack.

We're experience kayakers, but we visited the Kayak rental counter the day before we rented, to get a few details about pricing and equipment available. The guys who worked here took their time explaining the options and showing us the different trips that we could take. When we returned the next day, they were just as nice and they even... More
