Me and my father planned a last minute escape for labor day weekend to kayak around the keys. After contacting several rental and tour agencies, i knew from just the enthusiasm in capt markus' voice that he was the way to go. We met him off summerland key where he would chart us out a kayak route along the mangrove islands. He provided us with all the gear we needed and throughly prepared us for our adventure. We set out completely going off his instruction and boy were we rewarded! We explored the magnificient backcountry sighting exotic birds, fish, and just relaxing on the flats to eat lunch- exactly the escape we were looking for. This was all in due to capt markus' knowlegeable guidance. This is a man who lives and loves what he does. His passion and professionalism set a father and son on a journey through paradise and now theyre sure to be soon out again on the waters with him and more family/friends. Thanks Captain!

We have been renting from Capt. Marcus the month of July. It has been so wonderful to get to know him and rent from him. Renting from him has truly enhanced our kayaking experience. Every summer we are here he will be apart of our summer fun. Our family highly recommends renting from Captain Marcua

My wife and I spent our first day on the water in the Keys with our son, daughter-in-law and Captain Markus. He was prepared, congenial and as accommodating as he could be. Most importantly, he seemed to enjoy the day with our family so much that it was as though he was a member of the family himself. This sets him apart from others who may know the technical side of their business but give little thought to how much sentimental value the experience has for their companions. Exploration, fishing, adventure and just plain fun are all on the Captain Markus menu. Enjoy!

We booked far in advance with Capt. Marcus for a kayak adventure, but the weather forecast the day prior was dire. He was very flexible and arranged for us to experience am absolutely beautiful afternoon on short notice. The outing could not have been better, and we loved all the natural beauty of the area, He is a very knowledgeable naturalist and a very fun guy to hang with. The rest of our trip had unusually high winds daily, and he totally saved the vacation, as kayaking was our #1 goal, and he made it happen spectacularly.

I went with my husband and had the most wonderful time. Captain Markus was extremely knowledgable, friendly, and very entertaining. We go on these types of tours all the time and Florida Keys Kayaks and Eco Tours is the best, hands down. I recommend this tour to everyone, whether your are just a couple or a large group, you will love it. Capt. Markus knows all the most beautiful spots. He will take you the spots that no one else knows about to give you the best chance to see wildlife. It was a great experience seeing a baby shark swim right underneath our kayak! Can't wait to return!!
