Everything was s we want to be. Both girls were very kind of with the kids and the tour was exciting.
Zach was so knowledgeable and easy going. He taught us so much about the ecology and wildlife of the mangroves. We’d recommend everyone take this trip!
Enjoyed the tour & guide
I couldn't hear what are guide was saying because I was at the back. When I could hear him he seemed extremely knowledgable so it's a pity I was not able to catch all his info.
Great few hours - thoroughly enjoyed it, thanks.
Very knowledgable local guide. Catered the tour nicely to the interest of the group
The guide was very knowledgeable about the Mangroves and we got what we expected. Wish we could have seen a manatee but that was out of his control.
Our tour guide, Angel, was great! She was informative, mellow and accommodating of us wanting to see a manatee. We felt very relaxed and enjoyed our time. We highly recomend!

excellent guide and very knowledgeable. strongly recommend the guided Buck key mangrove tour.
Sam our guide showed us everything and had great history to share. He made sure that we saw it all. It was a great way to explore Captiva!
My husband and I had SUCH a great time on the mangrove tour. The mangrove trail was something you just don't see everyday, it was so peaceful, mysterious, and interesting. The Roosevelt Channel was remarkable - we saw manatees, dolphins, Carl the cormorant (my buddy!), and other wildlife. Angel was a fantastic guide, clearly knowledgeable and passionate about the area and the outdoors in general. She and Bob were both very friendly and helpful; Bob was great with communication in the morning due to storms and getting us rescheduled to the afternoon. We'd use Adventure Sea Kayak again in a heartbeat!
