Was a solid trip through a tight mangrove and open waters. It was my wife’s first time and the tour was solid it was us and one other group. I’d recommend joint kayaks for inexperienced kayakers. We got lucky with a small group. With a larger group I’m sure it can be intense. We had to get out in one shallow area. Def a solid tour.

Half of the Experience Received
Coral_C

I personally had a great time during the tour. The guide was super confident, which made us feel safe, and the views were amazing. I wasn't expecting much so I enjoyed myself. It was pricey but I'm happy to pay to have an expert navigate me through new bodies of water and the guide did make us all feel very safe. However, after seeing everyone else's reviews and retellings of their experiences online I see now that my group got the short end of the stick. Our guide was very chatty, but only gave us relevant information on mangroves and manatees for what could've been a total of 20 minutes out of the 3 hrs we spent with him. He took us to a beautiful beach, unsure of the name because he just said it was a 15 min break and disappeared until it was time to head back out. The most disappointing thing was that they told us to leave our phones behind because our guide would take pictures with his camera as we made our way through, come to find he only took 1 group photo, while I see all other groups have albums of candids and group shots of over 40 pictures. I would give anything for at least one blurry picture of me going through the mangroves. Don't let my experience deter you, looking at other reviews and other people's experience it looks like my group just got a rare dud.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Thank you for your review Coral! First, let me apologize for us making you feel like we didn't give you the best experience possible. Our rule of thumb is to have at least 20 pictures from each tour, including each person on that tour. I did reach out to the guide that took you out and spoke with them about the lack of photos and not being present at the beach, and this won't happen again. I am sending you a voucher for another tour, so we can give you the experience you deserve whenever you're ready. Again, I apologize that we let you down, but I promise we'll do a much better job next time. -Stefan

Eco Tour was great. Spencer was a great guide and very informative. Ride is about 2 1/2-3 hours so your hands/fingers do get tired after a while but in the end it was worth it.

Kayaking with Manatees

Our tour guide was great at pointing out wild life, plants and eco systems highlights. She maintained an easy pace for all kayakers and was very knowledgeable. We were fortunate to see manatee, dolphins and numerous waterfowl. The tour departed on time and lasted about three hours. Overall it was a fun outing and we learned about mangroves and the local ecosystems. Highly recommend this tour.

Fun, slight challenge, might need to update route
Jeanette_T
, Mar 2022
Great time! Was a little wary of the ocean part, need a dry bag for this section! But we did see a manatee and a dolphin! The mangroves were great. Although taking the tour through the section where new apartments are being built/construction site was a buzz kill.
icon Response from Host , Mar 2022
Thank you for your review! We're glad you enjoyed the eco tour and were able to see Dolphins and Manatees! We wish we had control over who builds what in a 3 mile radius around us, but unfortunately we don't. There's no way to change the route we take on the tours that would eliminate spending 5 minutes paddling along the construction area. Fortunately the vast majority of the tour happens in pristine nature, and we're lucky to still have that available to us. We hope you'll come back and see us again soon! -Stefan
