Our party of 4 adults thoroughly enjoyed our mangrove tour! Bethany was an excellent guide, super competent & knowledgeable. She made educational stops along the way, pointing out sea creatures & wildlife we would have missed. (Highlights were showing us a jelly fish & hairy snail that we could touch, if we wanted, and then she put them back in their habitat.)

Our first time in Key West and our first time kayaking. At first my husband just wanted to rent the kayaks and do our own thing, but we are both glad we did the tour instead. Our guide, Heather (Heather with the dreads), was wonderful- very informative and so sweet. We saw a lot of wild life that we otherwise would have missed and it was fun maneuvering through the mangroves, too. Everyone at Lazy Dog and Hurricane Hole was so nice and the atmosphere is very laid back. We enjoyed a few drinks at the bar, before and after our tour. There was even a family of manatee in the marina before we left. I highly recommend this tour and this company!

My husband and I have been kayaking before, but never through the mangroves. Bethany was a great tour guide! She knew her was around and was very knowledgeable of the animals and plants we saw. We learned so much and saw a part of the keys that we didn’t even know existed. We will definitely be back to explore the mangroves on kayaks again.
