our family recently spent a weekend to end the summer at the Hilton Key Largo (a great experience) and since we were a very large group we offered water sports from Caribbean Watersports offered at the hotel. 5 of us took a trip with Capt Joyce through the Florida Mangroves
we took my 2 year old grandson for his first boatride. WOW! is all i can say in a word. Capt Joyce is a passionate local who is full of great information about our very own "backyard"! As a native to South Florida for over 50 years, i had never ventured out in our waters like this...i asked myself what took me so long! What a most memorable experience we had and it was all due to capt Joyce! She rocks! i would recommend this trip (Eco tour) to the locals and visitors alike. it made the weekend! and as my grandson said after the trip "BRAVISIMO!!! Capt Joyce!!!!!

While visiting the Hilton Key Largo we decided to go on Capt. Joyce's Eco Tour! So glad we did! It was such an unforgettable experience! It was my (2 year old) sons first boat ride and he still hasn't stopped talking about it! Believe it or not having the beach as your backyard (from Miami Florida) you would think we know practically everything about south Florida's water.. however we learned so much more than i ever thought i would know! Captain Joyce gave such amazing details about the mangroves, animals, marine life and more!! You don't always find people that love their job as much as she does! Im so glad we took this Eco tour but most of off im so glad we were able to experience it with Capt Joyce! Definitely something i would look forward to doing next time we visit Key Largo again!

One a whim, we took a day trip to Key Largo and lucked out when we were able to sign up for the Eco Tour via Caribbean Watersports at the Hilton resort. We wanted to do something a little different before heading back to Miami. Was started as an unsure venture into Key Largo, turned into one of the best highlights of our trip.

Captain Joyce boarded us (our three girls 12/9/6 my wife and I) on her boat - big enough just for our gang. She was smart to establish expectations and that we were going to observe the subtle discoveries. If you're looking for Disney rides this is not the best way to spend your two hours. But...if you're interested in the land, water and learning about all things related to the water you traveling on, wish to better understand this part of the Everglades...it was a fantastic experience and highly recommended.

We learned about coral, formation of Florida, mangroves, different species of marine and bird life and many other things that we all found very interested. Captain Joyce really brings things to live, loves what she does, and her enthusiasm and love of the land and water is infectious.

We were lucky enough to see a dolphin playing around very close to our craft...not always going to happen on these trips...but we got lucky and only added to an already great experience. Captain Joyce spotting it and quickly drove over...we spent around 15 minutes following its path...an unexpected gift. We didn't see sharks or alligators but now understand how they fit into the ecosystem in the bay. We now understand this part of the Everglades better than we could have hoped, our girls learned more in 2 hours than we could have ever hoped...and we made some life long memories thanks to Captain Joyce. Well worth the time and money.

My husband and I had a wonderful wonderful time. Everything was great, time keeping, booking, etc. Even our time on the boat was very generous!! We could not find fault in it. The staff were amazing: Jordan - Sailing, The Captain - Darrell and even Victoria, who ran the bookings; they were all really lovely and efficient people!
Would definitely recommend!!
