Great prices, great service, great adventure. Recommend visiting both the island and the mangroves. Island has a cool rope swing. Mangrove tunnel is something you definitely have to see.

First time kayaking but no worries. Chris made everything easy with some basic instruction and off we went! The mangrove tunnel was awesome and we're planning to go back for paddle boarding. PADDLE on!

Hi, I will be staying in Marathon for a week in March and will be bringing my kayak down with me. I am planning to stay at Jolly Rogers RV site, and am interested in exploring places within a two hour driving range. I was hoping to get suggestions on places that I can get to by kayak, particularly places that have snorkeling. I am average to above average skill and comfortable in open water. Thanks, Neil
