This was our second kayak trip with the company and both times were excellent. The mangroves are so otherworldly and amazing to go through. Today we had a special treat seeing dolphins in the bay, including a baby and their mother, who came quite close to us. We felt safe and comfortable the whole time, and the paddling was very...

We took this tour with our 2 young kids (ages 6 and 3). We were concerned that they would not be able to sit for 2.5 hours. This was not an issue at all. They were entertained the whole time and it was a great tour.

Excellent experience, we saw dolphins feeding five minutes after we hit the water. The paddling was pretty easy, a little trickier in the mangroves. The guide was very professional, friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. A very doable trip for beginners. I would recommend this trip to everyone . Their bike rental shop is also A-1.

The guide was well-informed and made every effort to expose us to the sights of the Key. We saw it all, from the manatee to the tree snake! We appreciated the small group; decidedly, our tour was far superior because of our limited number.

Should have done this kayak trip years ago. Almost too much fun for a 75 yr. old. The guide Dave was knowledgeable about the flora and fauna and gave helpful tips on paddling the craft.

We booked a 9am tour on a Saturday in January, as we were driving the two hours from Orlando we called them to confirm our appointment. They said they had try to get hold of the group a the past few days because the tide in the morning would not be high enough - they said to still show up... More

This was a great tour. The leader was so patient with all the inexperienced people and willing to answer any questions. Me and my husband have been kayaking plenty of times so we were there for the sights and to see the mangrove tunnels. They were just beautiful! We had a great time and recommend this tour highly.

Had a great time. Our guide was very informative and treated us above and beyond our expectations. Would have given 5 star if our group of 7 could of all had single kayaks and not 2 doubles. Loved how close we got to see the dolphins. Mangroves had tons of ocean life you just have to look closely.

One of the best experiences and memories made with my family. Our guide Dan was so professional and thorough in describing the use of the kayak, as well as describing the habitat that we would be seeing and kayaking through. I highly recommend adventure kayak outfitters.
