“Not to be missed”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Very memorable kayaking trip through the mangroves. Saw many beautiful birds, tropical fish, a croc, an alligator and a very personal experience with a 7' manatee. Pure magic! Thanks John!

“Friendly and affordable”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

The staff were fantastic in there instruction and knowledge of the area. It was my families first time kayaking and it was great. The mangrove tunnel and lagoon were fantastic. The trip out to Indian Key was fun, but there is not much on the island except some gravel trails and a few signs saying "what they think" the pile of rubble was. They even admit on one sign that they have no idea what one hole is. All in all a great time had by my entire family.. On a side note, the food at the restaurant was surprisingly good and watching he pelicans and the tarpons from our table was very enjoyable.. For a tourist trap, it was way more Han I expected and would defiantly go back.

“Awesome Start to our Saturday”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

Cool, knowledgeable and helpful staff. Didn't get to see Indian Key due to the wind and strong current, but alternate route through the nearby mangroves was pretty awesome. Saw a croc and a few birds and fish. Will definitely go back again to do the eco tour and hit up Indian Key when it's a little cooler and easier to navigate. Once you're done, grab a beer at the bar, feed the tarpon and hang for a bit.

“Great experience”
Reviewed May 7, 2012

After doing a lot of research on places to go kayaking. We chose the kayak shack at Robbie's. The staff was helpful and easy going. The area is absolutely beautiful. Great for experienced and novice paddlers. We will be going back soon.

“Excellent tour”
Reviewed April 11, 2012

We rented kayaks and a guide here. The kayaks were in wonderful shape, and the guide was very knowledgable. We were out for about 2 hours. The mangroves were amazing. We went through 'tunnels' of mangroves. The guide was able to point out many critters and birds, including two crocodilles!
