We had an excellent time. Our guide Russell had knowledge of the ecosystem and history of the area. We really appreciated that. He let us set the pace for paddling. Just a great guide that made for an excellent paddling tour of Rookery Bay and some mangrove tunnels.

Thank Scott B

Our 17 year old said it was the best tour wed taken on Marco and I tend to agree. Our guide was really informative and brilliant with out youngest child when he saw the grans on the mangroves. The evening time is the best and paddling back at dusk was truly memorable.

This was an wonderful experience - Russell is really knowledgeable without being at all invasive. We went out with the aim of seeing the bioluminescence and it was amazing. We were just so excited which Russ was very patient with, giving us lots of time and space to 'play' with the water. Conditions were perfect - a new moon - with the added bonus of the most beautiful sunset ever. Sitting silently on the water watching that sun go down is something we'll remember forever. As darkness fell, bight forks of lightning were flashing in the sky in the distance, and then we only had to wait a short while before we started to see the bioluminescence - like northern lights in the water. Quite a show...and we didn't even get bitten! Can't recommend this highly enough.

We had a wonderful experience during the 2.5 hour Rookery Bay Kayak Eco Tour with our guide Russell. As a family of 4 with a 16 yo and 11 yo, we have previously enjoyed kayaking in Islamorada, but this trip was much more tranquil and enjoyable. Russell did an excellent job guiding and allowing us to explore areas more in depth if we wanted to. He was informative and passionate about the ecosystem and gave great insight as to the past, present, and future of the Everglades. We were delighted to see tree crabs, fish, birds, dolphins, and starfish. It's a good idea to bring water, apply sunblock and bug spray prior. We highly recommend this tour!

great trip with 9 and 12 yr old. Sit on kayaks for two were easy to handle with the kids. Guide provided non stop narrative on the surrounding plants and animals. Highly recommend this trip.
