This was a great experience! It was definitely a little challenging & we were a little sore the next day- you kayak for three hours. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable & going through the mangroves was pretty cool! I would recommend if you are in Key West!

An awesome experience. The company keeps the people limited to 6 on the catamaran so you truly get a personal experience. My 14 year old son and I went and only 2 other people were on the boat. The kayaking through the mangroves and getting up close to wild life is unreal (crabs, conchs, fish, jellyfish, birds, etc). The snorkeling... More

We had the pleasure of taking a group kayaking trip with Margo. This was my husband's and my first trip, and we were thrilled. Margo kept the group alive and interested with her nature facts, and energy. She helped our group get to know one another and gel well. The trip lasted about 1.5 hours, and she gave us some... More

The sailing was wonderful, the kayaking very educational, and the snorkelling fun. Captain Bethany was very knowledgeable and personable. It was fun helping to steer while she raised the sail. I liked the mangrove islands and the snorkeling was fun. She has noodles for those first timers if they want them.

This was the highlight of our trip. Our guides were knowledgeable about the history of the area, provided expert instructions for first time snorkelers and kayakers, and gave a fantastic tour of the key west wildlife preserve. Highly recommend for singles, couples, and families.

We were looking for kayaking the mangroves and found Key West Eco Tours and Carla. Carla was a great guide and very informative of what we were seeing. The java cat was spacious, clean and an amazing ride. Definitely would come back!

My wife and I signed up for the Kayak tour based on other Trip Advisor reviews. I am glad we did. We lucked out and were the only two on the tour....which made it our own private tour. Our guide, Elenor, obviously has a love and passion for nature, particularly the Florida Keys. We learned a bunch of things I... More

We couldn't have asked for a better, more personable captain; Lisa! They were running a little late from their first booking of the day but definitely made up for it by keeping us out for the sunset. The tour was great; snorkeling and kayaking, but it's the personal touches and good people that really made it great (shout out to... More

We took this trip with Carla last week and it was the highlight of our trip to Key West! Carla was a wonderful host and captain and provided a very memorable experience. We left promptly at 9:00am with one other couple (maximum number of guests is six which was one of the features that drew us to this particular excursion).... More
