Bill did a great job of showing us around and had really good knowledge of the area. Kayaking through mangroves was great we saw lots of wildlife. Then to cap things off we saw a family of manatees.

Kelly was a great guide, knowledgeable and really cares about this area. Spotted manatees from a LONG way off and guided us carefully to observe them. Cormorants swam under our kayaks catching fish. Truly memorable trip.

Our guide, Kelly, was not only informative but entertaining. We were fortunate enough to see some manatees and some crazy Cormorant birds that escorted our kayaks. The weather was perfect, the mangrove portion of the trip is not to be missed. And we live here!

The cormorant birds are very curious, however it's only in this area that they hop a ride on the kayaks. Fun times! Thanks for the great review.

We will have cooler temps in the morning, but both times slots will be an excellent time on the water.
