Excellent tour, excellent tour guide (JB). JB was full of information about the native sea life, animals and vegetation. He was very funny and kept our attention. We also got to see dolphins and lots of birds. We highly recommend it and we definitely do it again!

Disappointing Kayak Tour

New guide needs to work on keeping the group moving and providing more direction. Was expecting to see more than marshland and a stranded shrimp boat.

Cindy was great! My sister and I are not Kayakers, but Cindy quickly taught us the basics. She even was patient and helpful when my sister got turning around/stuck/ heading for the dock 😂😂 We saw lots of dolphins and learned lots about the local environment. Would highly recommend!

Great guides, not much kayaking involved.

Guides were great and very knowledgeable, but we didn’t really go anywhere—most of the trip was just floating and bumping into the other kayaks. Would rather know up front there’s not much kayaking involved.

Wonderful Ecco kayaking trip!

Wonderful eco kayaking trip with Michael. Alexis and Ryan were training as guides. They gave us a good, quick training on the kayaks. Then we paddled around the estuary where we saw many species of birds as well as a number of dolphins. Michael was a wealth of info and answered question in a fun, relaxed way. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a little daunting to figure out how to get out there, but it was wonderful once we were there.

This was such a good and educational experience. We were beginners and it was a perfect way to learn to kayak. We have two girls, a 9 and 6 year old, they did great. We did see dolphins! We’ll definitely be back to do this again.
