Our family of six rented three clear bottom kayaks for the morning. Tyler was a great host! He had them ready for us with waters and coolers to keep the waters cold. We saw a shark, a sting ray, fish & shore birds. We highly recommend this place!

Great time on Waverunners today. Tyler spent extra time with us ensuring we were having a safe and memorable time. We did and even saw a Spotted Eagle Ray and Manatee!! Thank you Tyler for being so caring to my family, we had a blast!!

Sonny and Gwen's location is right next to the famous Snapper's restaurant in Key Largo. After a nice lunch, the kids and I rented a jet ski for half an hour followed by an hour long crystal kayak trip in the mangroves. Sonny was very accommodating and helpful and the prices are extremely reasonable. As the kids (10 and 8) and I rode the jet ski, he took pictures of us and shared them later. He also provided bottles of water for both the jet ski and the kayak rides, including ice buckets to keep them cool.

In my experience these water sports rental places in FL tend to be filled with hustlers trying to make a quick buck of the tourists, Sonny is genuinely a nice guy and he made sure our experience with him was very pleasant. The area is ideal for the jet ski as it's not crowded with boats and the luxury of paddling in a clear kayak among tropical mangroves is an amazing bonus.

Do not miss this place if you're in Key Largo; it's a true gem and so are its owners!

We met Sonny down at his dock by Snapper's restaurant for our Crystal kayak ride. What a super nice guy with a fun attitude! He was very friendly and helped us out with everything that we needed. He got us suited up and gave us some cold waters, then gave us directions to some neat areas to kayak. He helped launch us in the water and pull us back out when we were done , he also took pictures of us and gave them right to us when we were done as well. We ended up seeing cool Birds, iguanas many fish, crabs and most likely a large nurse shark. Overall it was a great experience and we will be visiting him every time we come to the area from now on.

Initially, I had searched for the first, top rated jet ski company to pop up. They were booked, but recommended Sonny. A bit begrudgingly, we called to see if Sonny and Gwen had any openings. Gwen was very helpful and found us a spot. When we arrived, Sonny was personable and kind. The weather was perfect, the water amazing and the whole experience just plain fun. Thankful the first place was full! We would have been one of many, verses our own group receiving individual attention in a calm environment. Thanks Gwen and Sonny for a fun afternoon!
