Bethany was a fantastic guide. She was very knowledgeable and patient. The trip was just the right pace; not difficult at all. We stopped in various spots to learn about the ecosystem and mangroves in Key West. We were allowed to hold a horseshoe crab and a starfish along the way. Highly recommend.

Mangroves. Fascinating. Loved going through them. Heather (guide) awesome! Kayaking was fun. A little challenging. You will need to engage with rowing and maneuvering. You will get wet. Wear sunscreen, hat, and protect belongings in dry bag.

We went on the Key West Eco Tour with Peyton as our guide. It was a great experience: out guide made the trip interactive, fun and brought it to life. The water was very calm and the mangrove tunnels were exceptionally peaceful. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the Keys!!

Peyton was an excellent guide! What a great tour, not a lot of wildlife today but a great break from Key West heat. Peyton also shared her favorite Key West restaurants and hot spots to make our week even better. I highly recommend this tour!

It was a fun excursion! Our guide was Payton and she was really cute- very funny and relaxed and knowledgeable. I can’t swim, but at no point did I feel in danger. The sites were cool. Would do again for sure!!

I would only recommend this to experienced kayakers. Beginners beware. My kayak kept getting stuck in mangrove tunnels they take you through. It took me a while to figure out how to navigate. Then I got separated from the group and had to find my way back to them. The guides are real nice though. I wouldn’t do this again.
