Great value, no need to cross deep, windy channel. Saw baby shark, barracuda and sting rays. Beautiful water, excellent views, friendly and helpful staff.

“Amazing Trip Through the Mangroves”
Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

We had Chris as our guide for our kayak tour and with 9 kayaks and 13 people, he was very good. He helped everyone to see the wildlife as much as he could. There were many cool jellyfish, barracudas, sponge, and other life. The only minus was the length of the tour, but for anyone 10+ it was good. Also, some of the sights were monotonous. Overall the best value for the trip. If you have Chris as your tour guide, make sure you call him Kayak Dave, he loves it.

“great 3-hour guided tour”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

We went out with Big Pine Kayak Adventures, kayaking open waters, a creek through a mangrove forest, and a salt water pond. The guide was very good, deeply informed and keenly observant. He pointed out many things we would have missed, and his knowledge of the history of the area added real depth and texture to our tour. I highly recommend including a Big Pine kayak trip part of a visit to the southern keys.

“A Wonderful Fishing from a Kayak”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

We rented a Hobie Big Pine kayak for fishing and found the week to be outstanding. Bill did everything possible to help us make the trip enjoyable. He did his best to help us catch from fish and we did do quite well. Don't miss fishing there and with him if you have a chance. We would love to do this trip again.

“Fantabulous!”
Reviewed March 11, 2013 via mobile

Went out with Greg last Wednesday for the three hour tour to No Name and Friday with Bill for the four hour tour further into back country. I was a newbie to the Keys and kayaking. I do lots of canoeing in the backcountry in Ontario, Canada and this experience has me longing to buy a kayak back home. Both guys gave great advice on this. This experience was top-notch and worth every cent. Greg and Bill obviously love what they do and their knowledge combined with a friendly attitude means five stars all the way.
