Jo-an’s stories about the mangroves were funny and informative. Kayaking in the shady mangrove tunnels was easy after Jo-an’s instruction. Some wildlife- egrets, fish, jellyfish, birds. Nice group. Too windy to spend lots of time in the bay which was fine with me.

Had a brilliant experience. Our guide, Orion did such a great job narrating, giving insight into local wildlife and the mangroves. The experience lasted 2 hours and was approximately 2.5 to 3 miles in length. We managed ro see dolphins in the open water straight away, and lots of birds diving for fish. Highly recommend!

A great experience for both kids and adults and well-worth the small investment. Thanks to Orion, our very knowledgable tour leader, my grandchildren came back with with lots of new information about the ecosystem of this part of Florida. We had a couple of tandem kayaks and were joined by a newly-wed couple in single kayaks. The size of the group was perfect for clear communication. Even the temperature, 61 when we set out was not too cool for being on the water. If you need an intelligent break from the beach this is designed for you!

We had a party of 4 and 2 of the group had no experience kayaking and they did not have any issues. Our tour was great. Our guide, Chris, was great. We got to see some manatees, crabs, sea urchins, and tree crabs that looked like spiders! We were able to experience a great tour even though there was some damage from Ian. Trip time of 2 hours was perfect!
