This kayak experience was amazing..most of the ride the water was pretty shallow so that was a plus..once we made it to Shell Key Island, it was breathtaking... only negative about the tour was we got separated from the group and stuck paddling against the winds which made it difficult for us to gain some speed .. our tour guide wasn’t much help as far as coming back to help us navigate or give additional instructions.. we did get it figured out however was a bit disappointed since he was the professional that he didn’t come back to help us. For my friend who was with me this was her first time ever kayaking so for beginners more tips could be offered ☺️

We had booked this trip and then ran into complications with our car rental and a family member developed Covid symptoms. They were unwilling to accommodate, change the date, or even swap our reservation with other interested parties. They did try to charge us as a no show and fill the spot so that they would get paid twice. Horrible experience!!!!

The tour was very well organized and prompt. Ensured that our safety is #1 and provided so much history while kayaking. Chris was super! And made our tour a memorable one (especially lugging around a 2 year old). :). Thanks so much Chris

I loved this kayaking trip and our guide, Chris, was very knowledgeable about the birds and animals in the area. We saw so many different bird species and we found a lot of cool shells at our stop. I also loved watching the pelicans dive near us.

Raven was a great guide. Didn't see much wildlife, but season may have impacted that. Island stop was fun.
