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!
