This was the first time we have ever kayaked. Our tour guide Dan was super informative in talking about ocean life and the eco system of Florida. I would definitely recommend this excursion. Kayaking through the mangroves was a neat experience.

So much fun! We were able to see two manatees and the mangroves were really neat! The kids loved this activity the most! Dan was pretty cool. I guess. 🤪 Must do!!

The kayaking adventure has it all - water, animal and marine life, adventure, fitness and challenge, family bonding, education. This the second time we've done this and would do it again. The guide, Dan, does a great job.
