We went on the morning mangrove tunnel tour this past July 19th and had a fantastic time! It was our family's first time kayaking so we were a little bit nervous but our guide Mark and his assistant were great teachers and we picked it up in no time. We weren't even sore the next day. Totally relaxing and fun experience! It was the highlight of our vacation. The mangrove tunnels and surrounding water are beautiful and kayaking is truly the best way to enjoy that area. It was an awesome tour we can't wait to go next year!!

My wife and I just returned from a very enjoyable afternoon kayaking with Mark and Danielle as our guides. Mark was very welcoming and used humor to make everyone feel comfortable. Danielle was very knowlegable and answered all of our questions about the water and the various type of fish in the bay. We enjoyed the entire adventure but the highlight for us was having a black tip shark swim within 10 yards of our kayak.

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!
