My first time kayaking and Capt Yak made it such a memorable experience!

I had never been kayaking before, Capt Yak was a great teacher and patient with me on how to use the paddles. He was also very knowledgeable of the wildlife and history of the area. He also took pictures of my friends and I. I’m so glad I did this tour and will definitely schedule another one soon! I truly recommend this tour and Capt Yak, he made our experience great! :)

Capt Yak was funny, informative, and fun to be around. We learned so many things about the area and it's wildlife. Going through the Mangrove tunnels and exploring at Shell Key was my favorite! It was a very peaceful and beautiful trip. We were able to spend more time exploring and really getting close to nature than we would have on a charter boat.

It was such a good day! So glad we decided to do this! We saw so much marine life. Capt. Jason was so knowledgeable of the ocean and marine life. We saw some dolphins and much more. This experience will never be forgotten. Will come back someday and do again! Highly recommend for all ages!

Great value, great for relatively athletic wildlife lovers
Christine_C

Pros: Comfortable kayak, great scenery, good amount of wildlife: saw cormorants diving under our kayaks because our rowing stirs up fish, saw some ibises, Capt Yak was knowledgeable and showed us several sea creatures that he found in the water: jellyfish, conches, etc. Kayaking through mangrove forests was awesome! Cons: started and finished 20min late due to people arriving late, including one staff member. We had arrived early as instructed so we had to wait quite a bit. Only had about 20min on the island, would’ve appreciated around 30-40min. No bathrooms just lots of trees. Our athletic friends did fine, non-athletic friends were struggling a bit to keep up with the rowing.

Thank you for booking, the review and your feedback. I am glad you enjoyed the tour, the wildlife and comfortable kayaks. We do only spend about 20 minutes on the Island on the tour. If you ever come back contact me and you can rent kayaks and make you way out to Shell Key and spend more time there. Private Tours can also be booked and customized. It is rare that we leave late and I do apologize for that. Hope to see you again. Greg Capt Yak

What an adventure!!
Whitney_M

This was so much fun and very much so of a workout. This is not the weak! The Mangroves were okay but a little tight to get through. The depth of water was not bad either (about waist level at the highest) only thing is that I wish we were provided with a light snack. Make sure you bring water shoes and some snacks for energy source! YOU WILL NEED IT. Would do with a older child but I’m not sure if a little kid would be up for the challenge. (Maybe in double kayak but not a single). My husband and I were happy we did it but very much sore the next day. Thanks again captain yak!!

Thank you for booking and the review! I am sorry you felt it to be a workout. Some days can be harder because of the wind and yes this time of the year with the lower tide levels some of the tunnels can be narrow. Hope you come and try it again. Greg Capt Yak

This was such a fun experience. Captain Yak was very knowledgeable about the wildlife. We saw dolphins, welks, conchs, and crabs. Captain Yak was very patient with two 10 year old rambunctious boys who had lots of questions and wanted to see EVERYTHING!

Thank you for booking! I everyone was great and love seeing the younger ones interested in the environment! Dolphins always an added bonus. Hope to see you all again. Greg Capt Yak
