Enjoyed the hands on experience with the indigenous species. Our guide, Leia sorry if misspelled, was wonderful! She showed a real passion for her knowledge pertaining to the ecosystems and for her up beat disposition.

We had such a great time with Bethany as our guide! She show us all kinds of things like nurse sharks, jellyfish, birds, tree crabs and wonderful information about mangroves and how important the ecosystem is! Our family would definitely recommend taking this trip. Also, the restaurant next to them have the best fish tacos around. 😋👍

Bratt the guide was great. He was very welcoming and showed us many of the leaving creatures in the area. Including diving to show us a star fish.
Great experience with Heather!!!
Jeremiah_B, May 2023
Heather was so knowledgeable and made the trip a blast. Such a great experience and would recommend to anyone looking for a great kayak experience. Don’t try to do it alone, go on this tour and learn while you’re down here! She is also the reason we actually saw 95% of what we did, and then told us what we were seeing!
Great Tour.

A good mix of kayaking with education. Great for people that are not seasoned kayakers as there are lots of breaks along the way where the guide provides education.
It was a fun experience! I would highly recommend it.

We had a great time kayaking in the mangroves. Our guide, Bethany pointed out a lot of wild life we would have totally missed. Thanks!
Fun and informative!
NAncy_F, Apr 2023
Really nice tour! Going inside mangrove tunnels was unique and fun! Our guide also took time to explain the local eco system, which was interesting and gives u a break from paddling. After the trip, we saw manatees in the water, and the bar/restaurant that is next to Lazy Dog is a local favorite for their fresh seafood- All around a nice way to spend a few hours in the Keys!

Erin is the best!

Erin was a great guide and an awesome teacher. She took us through the mangroves and stopped multiple time to pick up sea life for us to see and hold. She even took us under a canopy to stay dry during a breakout shower.
