“Three hours of great fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

If you are looking for a worthwhile experience exploring nature and wildlife through the mangroves this is a great kayaking tour. Dave is personable and has lots of experience. We were a family of 5 with children between the ages of 8 and 13. We managed to see a manatee, marathon crabs, birds and a snake in the water. It was an enjoyable experience for all and just the right amount of time to not be too exhausting. We did the morning trip with excellent weather. Very memorable for us and the kids.

“Enjoyable day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2014 via mobile

Dave was energetic and entertaining. He took us to areas that only kayaks could get. It was a wonderful peaceful day. I would recommend using him. He also gave us excellent suggestions on where to eat later.

“Magical Day in the Mangroves”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2014 via mobile

My two girlfriends and I booked a private tour with Dave so that we could move at our own pace and have a better chance at seeing wildlife. Success! We had the chance to explore the Mangroves at our leisure, peeking at crabs, photographing the trees and what we had most hopped for, a manatee sighting! When we were in the canal this manatee swam right up to our kayaks to check us out, it was an amazing experience. We ended the tour kayaking in the ocean to watch the sunset. It was a great 2.5 hrs, Dave is a ton of fun to kayak with and I would definitely recommend it.

“Excellent Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2013

Awesome trip - saw some beautiful mangroves in Marathon, Dave is really fun knowledgable and personable, for the cost of $60 a head i think it was worth the trip and more. Saw lots of birds and fish during the tour also as well as got some great sun! did the morning trip, would definitely do it again.

“Fun adventure worth the money!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2012

We had a wonderful time with Kayak Dave! Very friendly, and always watching out for his group, Kayak Dave gave a great tour through the mangroves. Can this be done without a guide? Yeah...maybe, but who wants to worry about getting lost? Pay for a guide to bring the boats and watch out for your crew. I give my stamp of approval to this company!! (Spray for bugs...better safe than sorry.)
