    These guys are so helpful. I was there on my own, geared and all when my paddle started leaking, I asked them for help and although they couldn’t fix my board, they were really helpful renting me a board so my paddle vacation wasn’t spoiled. Thanks guys!!!!

    Such an interesting tour with Garl as an experienced guide with a lot of good stories! Even though the weather was not the best Garl I very much enjoyed the tour and I recommend everyone who wants to have a tour in the actual national park, supporting local business and to not harm any wildlife to book this adventure !

    We rented the Hobi Sailing Tandem Kayak. This was so much fun. You pedal and sail - you don’t need to paddle but you can. It has outriggers so you will not tip over. This is the perfect boat for this area. Plenty of space for a good sail and opportunity to explore the mangroves. We saw dolphins! We thought 4 hours was too long - but the time flew by. This boat is so well designed - everything just where you need it. The boat was clean and in excellent condition. The staff was friendly and helpful. Plus the store is really good!

    Sooooo great! Just a phenomenal tour. My wife and I took the 1.5 hour kayak tour around the mangroves, and Jeff's tour was outstanding. Highlight of our trip to the Keys. We really wanted to snorkel the reef, but winds prevented, so we tried this instead. Amazing! Jeff provided everything, and guided us through the maze of mangrove forest to see the most amazing bits of sea life, and all the while gave us fascinating insights into the creatures and the ecology of the place. Jellies, corals, colorful sponges, barracuda, and so many cool species I've never even heard of. The mangroves protected us from the wind, and the waters were just beautiful. I had considered just renting kayaks, but the guide made ALL the difference. I would have missed all the coolest stuff under the waters, and gotten totally lost! We started at a private residence and set off into Pennekamp State Park territory, and the whole route was just lovely. Thanks Jeff for a great tour!!

    Kevin as Sunshine was great to work with. He responded timely to call and was helpful in explaining the operation of the boat and giving directions on where to go. Boat was in good condition and operated flawlessly. I would definitely rent from them again.

    We rented a paddle board for 1 hour and it was reallly fun! The girl was very nice and told us the best places to go and explore! Paddle board was and great shape and clean. Everything was really nice! We booked for noon but there was an accident on the highway so we were going to be 15+ min late. We called the lady and she was very understanding and was able to accommodate us! Plus they had a really cute dog!!

    My fiancé and I did the mangrove eco kayak tour in Marathon and it was fantastic! Very easy booking process, all info was clearly communicated, and all things needed for kayaking supplied. Kevin was our guide, he was great and knowledgeable. This was definitely one of the highlights of our trip and we will be booking again next vacation!!

    I traveled with my fiancé and his family on this trip. Sailing on the catamaran was an incredible way to see the Bahamas. We were able to explore several cays, snorkel among the fish, turtles, and rays, and interact with the famous swimming pigs.

    I loved each of the islands we visited and the marinas as well were full of character. The Staniel Cay Yacht Club was particularly fun. We had delicious dinners served on the boat or at restaurants located at the marinas/on the islands we were stopped at.

    Overall an incredible experience!

    We were staying at the motel looking directly down on where the jet skis were "moored". We couldn't resist the chance to try them out. We had a quick chat with the friendly crew there and decided on the 2 hour tour which took us also out into the mangrove swamps area. My 21 year old son had to pass a written Florida test before he could ride. It took him a while but he passed. We then went out with another pair and our guide (Kevin?) - so 4 jet skis in all so it was almost like personal treatment. After carefully navigating the canal at Key Largo we merged out into open sea and could really let rip. It was quite choppy and I had to hold on well when we were hit by the swell of the many boats on this stretch of water. We then made our way into the mangrove lined quieter waters. We made it as far as a wreck where we could take a short swim if we wanted. I stayed on board for fear of not climbing back on again.

    We took up the 2 hours easily and were thrilled with the overall experience and the support we got from the experienced team there. By the way, this is not a particularly cheap way of spending the day. We paid $210 + taxes per person. And next time, we'd put on some sun screen beforehand. The sun is merciless there even though it was still "only" May.

    My 13 year old son and I dove with Rafael for 2 days (6 dives) at the end of May 2017. The diving was fabulous. We saw multiple eagle rays, nurse sharks and black tip reef sharks. Visibility on the reefs was tremendous. The diving in the Keys far exceeded my expectations. Rafael gives 100% to ensure everything is perfect. Safety is always paramount but he also went out of his way to be sure that we saw as much as possible. I don't think it is possible to have a better dive experience. Thanks Rafael and Sons of Poseidon!

    We went out in some rather rough water but Captin Tom did and amazing job taking us out. I had 3 young kids and my wife with me and everyone had a great time. My 9yr old son did the tankless diving with me and it was amazing. Really nice set up Captain Tom has on his boat. The visibility was less than 10 ft but the tankless diving still was super rewarding and we saw many beautiful fish and coral. Nice small boat tour!

    Adventure to Zen uses the best boards available. Not the typical cheap rental boards. Adam put me on a nice, stable Yolo. We paddled in and out of the mangroves in search of wildlife. Adam is a biologist and gave the most informative paddle adventure describing the types of mangroves, jellyfish, turtles and types of fish. We saw a sea turtle, dolphins and a nurse shark. So cool! I highly recommend Adventure to Zen and wouldn’t go anywhere else. His tour is the best.
