Our tours are geared towards first time and new paddlers.  We go at your speed so you don't have to worry about going out and getting exhausted.  Grab a friend and come along for a unique adventure on the #1-rated Eco-Tour through the mangrove ecosystem. Choose your kayak - single or double - and glide in our shallow clear water over sponges, grass beds, and sandy patches. Looking down, you might see a small nurse shark, turtle, or stingray, or can observe dolphins and manatees. Above water, herons, pelicans, and ospreys settle on the mangroves and hunt for fish. While there are no guaranteed wildlife sightings, we always see something cool in this one-of-a-kind estuary ecosystem that starts right outside the back door of our shop.


  • Ideal choice for families
  • Choice of morning or afternoon departure
  • Excellent value for money
  • See native wildlife in their natural environment
  • Informative, friendly and professional guide

Fun activity to end our trip. Winding through the mangroves was "sick", my son's word for awesome! Would highly recommend.

Our tour was with Susan and Slinky Dog. Susan was very knowledgeable, and could answer any wildlife question. We were informed wild life sightings were a hit or miss, but we saw manatee, dolphins, and sharks! Highly recommend!

Brittany made the tour enjoyable and informative. Unfortunately, we didn’t see manatees, but we did see a school of dolphins. We also had the opportunity to swim in the mangroves.

Super fun, if you like paddle boarding I’d highly recommend doing so. Getting to see all the animals and going through the mangroves was awesome!

We had such a great time with Brittney heading the tour! I felt she couldn't wait to share all her wildlife and ecosystem knowledge. Kayaked a bit to get to a mangrove trail. Great experience. At the end of this trail, was a swimming hole where most of us took a refreshing dip. The best experience of the trip was seeing a manatee when we left the mangrove trail. We were able to kayak close and watch this manatee munch away on some vegetation.Brittney took pictures of all of us along the way and a video of the manatee. A great experience! Do not miss this opportunity.

Awesome experience. Our guide was so impressive. She shared a great deal of knowledge about the mangroves and the overall ecosystem of not only the Keys but Florida as well. Everyone in our group loved the experience and would do it again.

Had a great 2 hour paddle in mangroves. Very easy did not have to cross open water. Our guide was fun and very informative as she was finishing her studies in environmental sciences, engaging, knowledgeable about the mangroves and very helpful to a new kayaker in our group. Highly recommend.

This was a very well put together tour. Equipment was in good shape. Our guide Becca was fantastic. She helped us get through some rough tides, she knew answers to every question, and what she told us was very informative. I highly recommend this experience!
