Excellent Kayaks and assistance/information from Jesse. Great kayaking area at Lido Key. Close encounter with 3 Manatees was very special!

We loved our tour with Kelly and Liquid Blue Outfitters! We have 3 small kids and 1 teenager and everyone absolutely had a blast! Kelly was so patient and knowledgeable. I would recommend for all ages, families or just couples! We will definitely come back!

Kelly was a great and patient guide. He had a large group to contend with and made sure everyone was safe, trained, and had the full experience- even tracking and seeing the manatees.

We rented kayaks for four hours, and it was the perfect amount of time for exploring. They were extremely friendly and helpful. I would definitely use this company again! My only advice would be to bring waterproof bags for your things.

We've been seeing dolphin and manatee on both tours. Both times are very good. It's a great eco-tour.

I'd call and check, but in my experience, go in the afternoon. This way morning low tide won't affect your trip or potentially lead to cancellation. We were just there three weeks ago and heard morning tours couldn't go into... More
