This is a MUST DO when in the area! Tom was so laid back and knowledgeable. The kayaks were comfortable and stable. We had manatees and dolphins swimming right near us (and under us) almost right away. We thoroughly enjoyed the mangrove tunnels and seeing and learning about the birds, as well as the history of the area. One thing we especially appreciated was the slower pace - no rush and no "itinerary". Thanks so much Tom!
