Ovid was wonderful as a guide, and a companion, through the morning on Biscayne Bay. The other staff was communicative and accessible through the appointments/reservation process. Weather permitting, this, again, is on our agenda for the next visit to Miami.

This was the second time to visit there and also my second time to visit the US. Because of the kind and helfpul staff it's a really good experience. This time I visited with my friend and his family and everyone enjoyed a lot. Thanks again. See you next year again :)

Courteous service, even though we were the last rentees for the afternoon. They provided enough direction to allow us to attempt the paddle boarding. If you want a workout, I recommend it. If you want to take it easy then rent a kayak Thanks

Yes, paddle boarding, especially if there is wind, can be quite a fabulous workout--and kayaking is great for the long hauls, especially for checking out the mangroves at Vizcaya.
