We took the mangrove tour with Mark and Danielle as our guides. The mangrove was an unexpected enchanting tunnel of beautiful plants, cool critters and friendly birds. We had kids as young as 10 and grandparents in their 70s and everybody enjoyed the trip. One of the highlights was our time spent on the sandbar in the bay. We found the most incredible sea life and Mark was very knowledgable about everything we picked up. My kids loved how the kayaks could also be used as SUP stand up paddle boards. Overall a fantastic way to spend an afternoon.

Found this outfit when out-of-town company expressed a desire to try kayaking. Friendly staff, very knowledgeable guide. She answered everyone's questions, pointed out things we all would have missed, was very concerned about our safety and made our trip fun. It was one of the highlights of our weekend.

We missed our reservation deadline and the owner had a spot for us anyway. They were an awesome team and treated us so well, even when we got lost and made the tour a little late. We got to see dolphins fishing, sponges, star fish and crabs on our tour. Our family is very diverse and everyone loved it! We would do this again! Sooooooo much fun!

We missed the reservation deadline but owners found us an opening. Mark and Danielle made the outing a great experience. Weather interfered but Mark watched the radar and gave everyone as much water time possible consistent with safety. Great equipment too. No one laughed (out loud) when one nimrod took a dunking at the dock. Definitely recommend these folks to any travelers in the area.

This was our first kayaking experience and we couldn't ask for a better time. Mark was a great tour guide and provided a great tour through the mangrove tunnels and into the bay. The views from the trip were amazing including Terra Ceia Bay and the Sunshine Skyway. We saw numerous birds, a few fish and stingrays. If you are looking to try kayaking, I highly recommend them for a great family friendly experience.
