John was our guides name. 2 of us went with a group that was only 6 people.
The prices was great compare to the other "mass group" tours. We learned more about Key West, and it was a sailing trip, a snorkeling trip, and a kayaking trip all for one price! We really enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who wanted to take a relaxing, easy going tour of the Keys. Awesome job John!!!

My friends and I experienced a wonderful and fun trip to the Key West National Wildlife Refuge aboard the Java Cat. This is great for those who prefer a small group (it seats 6) and who want to experience sailing, kayaking and snorkeling in one trip. Our Captain was Bethany Tietz and she was awesome! She knew the mangrove island very well and we got to learn about and see many plants and creatures on the kayak tour and saw cool sealife while snorkeling. Then back on the sailboat she had fresh fruit and veggies, water and soft drinks, then pasta salad and chicken salad. I usually am sensitive to motion and, although I forgot to take anything to prevent it, I didn't have any issues on this adventure. A+

excellent tour. George and Jack are very personable and patient. Make sure you ask for "Tortuga Jack" He will def kick some knowledge to you. Watch out for beautiful big birds, tons of fish Mangrove black crabs and maybe even some little hammerheads. Safe, sound and worth it.

My husband liked the idea because we could get all of our "adventures" squeezed into one. I liked the idea because the reviews on TripAdvisor were great. Another plus to a tour set up like this one is that it's much more cost efficient. It's a little difficult to pay $100 or more for a different tour each day. So, away we went. They had next-day availability, and there was only one other couple on our trip. And it was a wonderful experience. Bring lots of sunscreen, a camera (a waterproof one or at least a Ziploc bag for your small one or phone).

Went on a beautiful Saturday morning Kayak trip through the mangroves with our guide Jack off Geiger Key. It was about 2 1/2 hours. It was wonderful and Jack was a very knowledgable and showed us awesome sights throughout the mangroves! Really amazing creatures and plants I never even knew existed LOL :) There were two other couples in our group and we had a great time. I would highly recommend!! If we visit Key West again we will probably look into other tours that Eco Tours provides. Thanks Jack!!
