Rented kayaks for the day, price was super reasonable, and everyone in the shop was friendly and helpful getting us ready to go. One super cool thing, they had a rack to hang your car keys on so you didn’t have to worry about getting them wet or losing them. And we saw manatees, baby sharks, and all kinds of birds. And we could pull up to the launch area and get in and out of the water as often as we wanted to, and there were a couple of places to have a drink and a snack right next to PTFK. So it was easy to make a day of it! Highly recommend it!

We made use of their Kayak Launch for a fee of $10.00 per kayak which we felt was very reasonable. It is on Tavernier Creek connecting the Gulf with the Atlantic. While it was extremely windy, the Creek stayed relatively calm. We encountered dolphins, a manatee, caught a few fish and explored the mangrove shorelines. Everyone who worked in the store was very personable and extremely helpful pointing out locations to check out and providing us with a free map to use. The store look well stocked with kayaking supplies if you needed anything.

I love this place! The people are nice, caring, and easy to talk to. Prices were reasonable. We rented paddleboards for the day (no minute-counting, which I love) and were mere inches away from manatees and dolphins.Liked an older shirt in the gift shop and was given 50 percent off. Really adorable place and highly recommend renting from here for a beautiful day!

I was a little hesitant about kayaking because I had only kayak twice. But let me tell you Daven was a big help. He is very patient and kind. I do highly recommend not matter if you don’t have experience kayaking is fun and mostly is beautiful. I am from Arizona so this was amazing.

We went there for a paddle group tour but quickly realized we were not up to that level of paddle. We explained to Scott that we were just going to do a leisure paddle. We ended up going into the mangroves on a lovely mangrove paddle. He was very understanding and told us to have a good time which we did. Highly recommend their shop if you want to paddle in the keys. We found later that they do offer the mangrove tour. Would highly recommend it for a leisurely day of paddling.

Had a fun time on a 2-hour kayak tour of the mangrove. We didn't see any manatees or much other wildlife, honestly, but that's of course not the fault of PADDLE! This is 4 instead of 5 stars because the guide, while very nice and informative, didn't do enough to keep the group together and so we missed some of her narrative. Otherwise, we had a great time.

My sister and I rented kayaks at the end of the day and the owner was very flexible and let us take them out at 4 p.m. . We got lots of good tips from the staff about where to go and what to do and how to be safe in the currents under the bridge. This advice ended up being really important as the currents were strong at one point and saved us from rolling over.
We didn't have a lot of time before the sun went down so we did the longer kayak trip through the deep mangroves to the lagoon.. it was definitely an adventure but I would not advise it if you're looking for something relaxing and easy because the end was tough rowing against the current and using your hands to navigate through the mangroves. Next time i would just stay on the canals.
Caveat: We are in our 50s and this might be super fun for a younger crowd. ;) but it was a bit too much work for me.

the current is a flexible thing and sometimes it is stronger than others. the very best time to go out is one hour after high tide - this will give you current in your favor both directions which is the best. see you again someday. thanks for the review.

My husband and I went on the Mangroves and Manatees 2 hour tour. It was the highlight of our trip to the Keys. It’s one of the highlights of all our travels! We loved our guide (Brittany). She seemed as excited as we were to see manatees, dolphins, crabs, and barracuda, allowing all the time we wanted to watch the animals. She was very knowledgeable about the mangroves and their importance to the ecosystem. She also took lots of pictures and shared them with us. The entire experience was perfection! Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Great trip to the Secret Lagoon! Rented 4 single kayaks for a self guided paddle. Staff was friendly. Equipment in good condition. We took their advice and paddled to the Secret Lagoon through the mangroves. So much fun to be ducking (and sometimes almost lying down) to get up to the lagoon. Explored some of the canals after the lagoon. Would definitely recommend!

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to PADDLE! Our guide was amazing and she was very knowledgeable about the entire ecosystem. Aside from teaching us how to SUP, she also showed up an awesome mangrove section off the beaten path. I highly recommend anyone looking for a great excursion to book a trip through PADDLE!
