The paddling and scenery were great. Thought we would get some interesting info from our guide but didn’t really learn anything. We have done this before in other cities like Key West and Naples and guides were full of info. Only disappointment.

Tyler did a great job guiding us through the mangroves at the lido Beach Launch site. He was very knowledgeable about the ecosystem in the area. I wouldn’t hesitate using this company again.

Four of us has a very special time on the Lido Key tour. We bring all of our visitors here to enjoy the bay for a delightful relaxing, educational afternoon enjoying the water, sun and peacefulness. Another perfect afternoon
