Very pleasant escape into the quiet mangrove tunnels
Catherine_W

This was very relaxing and quiet morning activity. They kayaking was not difficult even thought most got hung up a little. It was easy to correct and the group was cooperative and helpful. My husband and I enjoyed or tandem kayak once we figured out our respective roles. Heather was our guide and did have to paddle back to tow in one kayaker who had some difficulty, and she did so very deftly, It illustrated the very reason to have a guide, especially if you are not an experienced kayaker. In January, there were absolutely no bugs which was a pleasant surprise, not sure that's always the case. I recommend this activity as a nice escape from the crowds and traffic of Key West. If you take the morning tour, I highly suggest a stop at the nearby Croissants de France bakery either before or after.

Unique environment for kayaking. Beautiful!! Tour guide, Heather (with the dread locks) was awesome. She is knowledgeable, patient and just generally fun! She was genuinely excited when we found fun things to see and look at. She worked hard to find things to see. We loved this tour and deserves 5 stars!

Megan was amazing. Highly recommend this excursion. She found several amazing things along the way and was very informative. The dozen or so nurse sharks were the hit of the adventure.

We had heather as a guide. There are 2 heathers. We had heather originally from the Bay Area and then Norfolk. She was absolutely outstanding. Her passion for the water and the animals she found and shared with us was wonderful. We learned so much and had a ball!
