Great two hour tour for the family. We really enjoyed the buck key trail, especially the funky birds that follow the kayaks while fishing in the shallow water. Very enjoyable

We really appreciated the time that Barb took to explain kayaking to us. In addition, it was so nice when we came back that she spent another 15 minutes teaching our kids about the ocean. She really perked their curiosity. We had a great time...More

They did an excellent job outfitting the kayak for each individual person and were very patient with the inexperienced, which was our whole group. Two hours was just enough, not too long and not too short. We took the tour and learned a lot about...More
