Don't get me wrong, if you've never kayaked or boated in your entire life, this could be a nice visit. However the kayaks they give you are really wide (wider than I'd use when I was seven) so it's pretty much impossible to accidentally (or even intentionally) flip them in the water. The place itself is just super touristy and... More

Dan was a fantastic guide, very well versed in the local Eco-system. The dolphins and manatees were on vacation, but that didn't detract from the tour. Mangrove tunnels were great, but could be intimidating to the claustrophobic. Certainly worth doing the tour.

My husband and I went on the kayak tour through the mangroves and loved it! The manatees did make an appearance as did other wildlife. Dan led us through the mangrove tunnels, where I inadvertently took a refreshing but untimely dip in the water. I couldn't have imagined a more perfect day to round out our vacation. Thanks again, Dan!... More

We signed up and had Dan as a guide. He was very knowledgeable with the wildlife and the mangroves, as well as fun and entertaining. Price was reasonable. The rest is up to Mother Nature. :)

The chilly, windy weather resulted in our tour group being only 6 kayaks along with guide Dan. The paddling was challenging at a few points but overall very reasonable. Dan was informative & entertaining throughout the 2 hour tour. We saw lots of birds but no dolphins or manatees. Renee made the reservation process easy & provided clear instructions to... More

Dan did a good job of explaining the flora and fauna we saw. Fun even though we didn't see any manatees or dolphins.
