Guided tour was over two hours. The guide was kind, funny and very informative. We had a tandem kayak, due to my nonabilities to go by myself. Others had single and tandem kayaks.

Excellent tour with Stephen- he knew so much about the ecosystem and was so excited to share it! Great trip, teenage boys loved it as much as we did. Would definitely make time For this.

Our guide Devon was outstanding. He pointed out several fish species and birds, and had a wonderful excitement and broad knowledge of the ecosystem, waterways and flora and fauna. We kayaked down several narrow mangroves which gave everyone on our trip the opportunity to see everything. A couple of high-lights included a barracuda, a "small" manatee, and Devon caught a small Nurse Shark with his hands (apparently his signature move) and set it on his paddle board for everyone to touch. I highly recommend this tour, especially with Devon as your guide.

Very fun way to explore the mangroves! Staff was super nice and we had a great time! Kayaking was a good choice because of the wind.

I cannot say enough about Suzanne and Stephen. The day I had booked a SUP tour it was incredibly windy. Taking their advice with these unfavorable conditions I kayaked the tour instead. They were very genuine in their concern that I have an enjoyable, safe experience. I appreciated them taking the time to show me what they were concerned about so that I could decide. Because I had never Paddle-boarded before and I really wanted to try it, when we got back from the tour they let me use a Paddleboard in the canal by their shop. Suzanne gave me some quick instructions and I was able to get a feel for the SUP. I spent about 30 min on the canal but I could have spent as long as I wanted. They went above and beyond to ensure I had an enjoyable and safe tour experience while also making it possible to try something I’ve wanted to for a very long time. They are true gems and I highly recommend this staff to anyone interested in getting out on the water. They will put your safety first while also making sure you get out of the trip what you wanted. Will definitely be back!
