First class staff and kayaks make for an excellent adventure for all skill levels. Easy paddle over safe channel to Buck Key, nice mangrove canopy through part of the Key, and safe return over open water. A manatee put his snout up through the water next to my paddle at the dock where we started. In adddition to the usual sea birds (herons, egrets, etc.) we saw a bald eagle, river otters in the mangroves, a dolphin in the distance, and best of all, a friendly cormorant our guide calls Carl, who is smart enough to know that paddles over sea grass stir up hiding fish for easy pickin's. Carl swims under your kayak and helps himself to fish. He had at least 6 of them during our tour. A very fun time.

Amazingly, they have closed touring kayaks, at very reasonable prices. Make the tour around Buck Key: tons of birds and great scenery. Very helpful staff

We particpated in a stand-up paddle board yoga class from Yali. We are both yoga instructors so we know a good teacher when we see one. She is a remarkable teacher. I would take any class from her, but this was a novelty. She made a special effort to keep us safe and to help us feel stable in this new experience. It worked my core hard, and improved my general yoga practice. It was also spiritually fulfilling. The meditation on the boards at the end of the session was deep. I would recommend that kids and adults try this very fun experience. She has the ability to customize it to beginners and advanced yogis alike. You will love her!

My 2 hour 9 am nature tour guide was with Keith....he was extremely helpful from the first. The water was a bit choppy and he saw my concern and called his manager for feedback....and that was so appreciated! I did go and he was very knowledgable on the area, history, fauna and flora. I highly recommend him......he made for a memorable kayak trip! And he took me even though I was the only one scheduled....how special for me!

I was the only person who booked the kayak tour @2 pm today.
The tour still was given (extremely nice in comparison to another tour company on Sanibel who turned me down for being the only guest, a business decision would be my guess).
George, my guide, was very good, he let me go at my pace pointing out flora and fauna we came across. very informative, quite relaxing, vey nice time crossing Roosevelt Pass and canopying thru the pass on Buck Island. Go for it.
