Great experience! Worth taking!!
, Jan 2022
Our guide Stephen was so good. He was very knowledgeable and has a real passion for what he does. We saw several manatee up close and learned about the birds and other aquatic species in this area. Definitely a trip worth taking.
Strongly recommend this trip!

Stephen, our eco guide, was extremely knowledgeable about the flora, fauna and history of the area which made the trip very educational. Experienced osprey nest, sea horses, pipe fish, sea urchin and fortunate to encounter several manatees swimming around our kayak’s. Outstanding trip!!
So fun!

Stephen is the best. He is SO passionate about Florida, the mangroves, and all animals. It was so fun being around his excitement and joy. Also, he finds all sort of creatures for you to look at. We had a fantastic time!

Exactly what we hoped for!

Steve and Karen were great guides. They caught (and released) small wildlife in seaweed to show the kids. Manatees and dolphins were very active. Would recommend going first thing in the morning.
Would Do It Again Tomorrow!

One of the best excursions/tours we’ve ever been on! Granted . . . we were lucky to see everything we hoped for and more. We came with high expectations to see at least A SINGLE manatee, but full aware we might not even do that. It ended up we saw many manatees, some right next to the kayaks as you can see in our photo. We even saw a dolphin, which we understand is not that common. Couple that with all the fantastic birds we saw, and it was a great trip! Stephen and Karen were a wealth of knowledge, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! It was a great day!
Just what we hoped for!
, Nov 2021
We had a great guide who was very knowledgable about the area and wildlife. We saw and hung out with manatees and saw many birds. He also netted the bay floor and came up with a sea urchin and starfish/sea star that we got to hold! Very enjoyable, thanks Stephen!
