This experience was great. This tour was good for all levels including beginners like my sister and I. We used a tandem kayak but you also have the option of a single. Joann was an awesome tour guide. He was patient, knowledgeable, and had a good sense of humor. We highly recommend Surfit and would bring family and friends here again.

We had a nice time but were a bit disappointed that we did not encounter more wildlife. The tour also took longer than it needed to. It moved at a very slow pace. Our guide Sam was terrific. She was very knowledgeable.

When we arrived we had a very little wait time till we started out tour. In our tour it was just the 3 of us so it was more personalized. Our guide was super friendly and knowledgeable about the species that live in the mangrove and the history. Overall we had a blast and would do a tour again.

Great experience just not for newbies

It was a cool experience but wouldnt recommend it if you havent ever kayaked before. Our guide really didn't provide much instruction at all even though we stated we were beginners. Felt left behind until we reached the mangroves where they became more helpful. Would highly recommend if you do have experience as it is exceptionally unique & amazing to experience. However, I would reconsider if you are brand new to a kayak.

We decided to take our daughter (20 something) out because we had such a great time last month out with Phil. Well we got lucky and got him again! Second time was even better. Phil is very knowledgeable and knows how to make it fun. I would recommend this to everyone and I would ask for Phil.
