We had a great time. Unfortunately, the manatee decided to go elsewhere on our day, but we still had a great time. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about everything! The birds, the water, the trees - it was so wonderful to learn from him and to see his passion about the environment and the wildlife.

Manatee' in the wild !(Bucket list - CHECK !)

Steven and Bowser led a fun and informative kayak tour of the Lover's Key Mangroves. My wife and I are experienced kayakers but on this tour were some first timers who were instructed and did a great job at keeping up and staying dry. We hoped to see manatees and Steven found them, scratching an item from my bucket list of seeing manatees in the wild. I would highly recommend this trip for anyone.

Karen was awesome. Kept myself and my two teenage daughters entertained on the waterways of Florida pointing out the natural habitat, birds, and our up close sighting of manatees. Tour is for everyone, kids to adults. Waterways are calm. No strenuous activity and it was perfect for all walks of life. Would highly recommend Karen, she is easy-going fun and makes the trip informative and relaxing. She includes bonus photos at the end!

My wife and I had our family visiting, and we really enjoyed ourselves! My Daughter and her family (son-in-law and 3 grandchildren, ages 7-14) had an incredible time! Our guide, Steve was incredibly knowledge and his enthusiasm for his work and passion for the Keys' environment were infectious! The "close up and personal" Manatee adventure was awesome! We were very lucky and blessed to have had those Manatees around us! Absolutely recommended! Take lots of sun screen!

We got very lucky. We’ll call her Molly the Manatee; she loved being as close to us as she could get. We had a wonderful guide who was very flexible with what wanted to do Marianne Roseville CA

Our kayaking tour was fabulous. We were so fortunate to see manatees galore - an experience not commonly had by kayakers. Our grandchildren were ecstatic at seeing so many up close. Our guide, Karen, was outstanding. She was well informed, very friendly, took a personal interest in each of us, called each of us by name, and generally conveyed to us how much she enjoyed us and her work. It was a great experience all around.

Great morning on the water. Our guide was very knowledgeable. Kept a slow pace for those not so experienced with kayaking. We were lucky enough to see a couple manatees right away, lots of birds and one large iguana swimming across.

Stephen showed us many different types of wildlife and told us a lot about the area. We saw mullet, cone jellies, shrimp, a spider crab, a baby flounder, and some hermit crabs. His little dog Bowser came along on the ride and had a great time too. Such a fun experience!

If you get a chance you need to book this tour! Stephen was an excellent tour guide! He took his time to point things out that we wouldn't have seen if we were out kayaking by ourselves. He was great at explaining the different things we encountered. You will not be disappointed if you book with him!
