I never kayaked before, but after they taught us what to do, I was a pro. Kayak through mangroves and Buck Key. The dolphins, manatees and loggerhead turtles are your guides. As close to nature as you can ever be.

This was a great quick excursion. Great instructional before we hit the water. Nicer life jackets would be nice. Kayaks were easy to operate, and very nice.
