Although an avid kayaker, I never did mangrove tunnels before

It was a cool experience going through tunnel after tunnel in the mangroves with each tunnel getting a little narrower, thus making it a little more challenging and more exciting.

An awesome tour through an amazing natural habitat. The tour service was super friendly and our guide, Orion, was very knowledgeable and engaging. He welcomed questions and took care that everyone knew how to use their equipment and enjoyed the excursion. Definitely a must do activity if you love the outdoors and seeing local habitats.

Orion was our guide and was great. He knew a lot and shared his knowledge in a fun way. Your size was small enough group and the whole experience was great!

Orion was our tour guide. He was super friendly and really knowledgeable about the ecology and history of the Lido area. He has a magic eye for spotting wildlife species. Can't wait to go again.

Tim was our informative tour guide for a family group of 10 that ranged in age from 12 - 63. The weather and water could not have been more perfect and made for a great outing for our holiday out of town guests. Had a good mix of open water and mangrove tunnels with lovely intercoastal views. Thank you!

Relaxing way to see beautiful surroundings and have a break from the beach. Saw lots of fish jumping and swimming by underwater. The mangrove tunnels are really fun. Great tour and great guides!Only comment for others to know ahead of time is that in the winter, the manatees begin leaving this area for warmer water. We didnt see any on our tour which was fine - but understand you may not see manatees or dolphins depending on time of year.

My friend and I took the Turtle Beach paddle board tour with Tim on 12/15. We both had a blast! Tim was knowledgeable, energetic, and provided us with a great restaurant recommendation where we later had our favorite meal of the trip (Spearfish Grille). The beach was crystal clear and the paddle boarding was definitely an adventure to remember! I highly recommend!
