It was a beautiful morning with a ton of up-close wildlife sightings. Gina was a wonderful guide. We had a party of 5 with mixed levels of kayak experience. My 77 year-old parents had no problems with the paddle (in tandem kayaks with my wife and I assisting them). We saw alligators, turtles, egrets, storks, vultures, hawks, anhingas, herons, and of course ALOT of manatees. The water is highly tannic so the visibility is not great but the Manatees came right up to our kayaks. One of them even nuzzled my Go Pro camera as I held it in the water for underwater video. Fully recommended!
I would highly recommend this kayaking experience! Our group included 2 adults & 2 kids (8& 10yrs). Guy was our guide & he was fantastic! He was there ahead of time, prepared with several types of kayaks, took care of all our needs, was very informative regarding to the different animals encountered & where to take us to see the manatees. He even took pics & sent them to my cell afterwards. I would highly recommend Guy as your guide & this experience.
Our guide Guy was extremely knowledgeable and friendly, saw many alligators, turtles, birds and a huge snake. I absolutely loved this trip!!!
This was one of the best things we have ever done. Guy was a first rate guide and the whole experience was amazing.
Bill was a wonderful guide! Super helpful and knowledgeable about the wild life in the mangroves.
