These guys were very pleasant and had a well organized business. The location is great; easy to find, plenty of parking, fun shopping near by and a good restaurant /bar next door. The kayaks are nice sit on top and the map of the kayak routes was well done.

Jeff took us out on the two hour jet ski guided tour, it was so much fun ! We rode through the mangroves and went fast in open waters it was great ! Then we snorkeled and saw beautiful tropical fish. Great people there very kind, I recommend the two hour because it includes a four hour kayak rental !... More

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

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
