Our tour guide Dan was great as he told us about the different wildlife and how the mangrove tunnels were formed. We saw 7 manatees and 7 dolphins, some jellyfish, black crabs, jumping fish, and the mangrove tunnels. Great way to start the day

Wonderful tour of the Mangrove tunnels and the bay! Dan was an awesome guide and we were able to see dolphins, sting rays, lots of birds. It was a perfect day to paddle the bay area and Dan was entertaining, safe and knowledgeable.
