“Kayak Tour through the Mangroves”
Review of The Kayak Shack

The Kayak Shack
Ranked #8 of 163 Tours in Islamorada
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 December 2017 via mobile

Went with a group of four with Andy as our tour guide. Andy answered every question that was asked and gave tons of information on different wildlife and the islands around. If able to pick a tour guide, I would highly recommend asking for Andy. As for the tour itself, we were able to see lots of different wildlife such as sharks, manatees, stingrays, and the list goes on. If in the area, would definitely put this on your to-do list!

Very friendly, affordable had a great time! We were worried if they would be open since the hurricane. Beautiful water! They had several options available. We did the one hour mangrove option since we where headed to the airport. Would definitely return here.

John at the Kayak Shack is the nicest, most helpful guy! I spoke to him via phone before the trip and again when we arrived to rent a kayak. This place is well organized and has everything you need! We took a kayak through the mangroves for an incredible and relaxing afternoon. Absolutely worth stopping here for an afternoon when you're in the keys!

Rent Kayaks here to go to Indian Key, one mile from shore. The old capital of the Keys which was destroyed via an Indian attack in 1840. The snorkeling and history are amazing!

We went on the 2 hour wave runner tour, and it was a blast! We've never been on a waverunner, but after a quick lesson in basic operation and handling from our guide Frank, we headed off. It took a little bit of time to get used to steering and speed, but what a fun tour! Frank was an excellent guide, took us thru the mangrove tunnels and under the bridge to the open ocean. The water was incredibly clear, it was like flying across a swimming pool! We stopped for a bit of snorkeling out by the Alligator Reef lighthouse. Have never seen so many fish in one place! If you are in The Keys, don't miss this trip! Would highly recommend it! We went back the next day and took a kayak out to Indian Key State Park. This was also a really fun thing to do ( and it was included free in the price of the waverunner tour). We also had a great lunch at the Hungry Tarpon where you can also feed the Tarpon off the dock. All in all a great time, be sure to stop in at the Kayak Shack in Robbie's Marina at Islamorada!
