Will was a great tour guide and was able to show us Manatees, Dolphin and other wild life in the mangroves. Great kayaking tour!

Took the 1 o'clock tour through the Mangrove Tunnels with Will. He was an excellent tour guide. He knows his stuff and great leader even with beginners and a great sense of humor. Definitely worth the money. He made sure to point out the dolphins, jellyfish, bald eagles, urchins, starfish, and all kinds of birds and other creatures.

This past weekend, I enjoyed a reunion with 8 college friends and this kayak adventure was the highlight of all the events we enjoyed. We took 4 double kayaks and a single and were guided by Will who was knowledgable and friendly. We started on the bay and then entered a quiet inlet and saw two manatees. We finished up... More

Glad we took the 9 am tour before all the other kayakers got out there! 4 of us, and 2 other customers--I wouldn't have wanted a larger group than that on this tour. Will, our tour guide, was relaxed and easygoing, and very knowledgeable about the mangrove trees and the ecosystem of the estuaries. He was able to show us... More

The three of us were lucky enough to be the only ones on the tour, so we had Will's undivided attention. It was a great time; I highly recommend Almost... More

Will our guide was Very knowledgable, the weather and water were perfect. Lots of wildlife. A couple saw a Manatee in the water but it didn't surface for everyone to see. I will take the same tour with the same guide again next year.

Will is a knowledgeable and fun guide, he has lots of info about the area, the keys, the water and the living things in it, and a sense of... More

My husband and I took the 2.5 hour eco tour with Will exploring the Mangrove tunnels and learning about the native ecosystem, flora and fauna. We saw 3 dolphin and lots of interesting birds / wildlife. Will was lots of fun and was very knowledgeable (and could answer all the groups questions). It had been many years since we had... More
