Morning tour was wonderful and so peaceful. Our tour guide was a 6th year generation to the island and a wealth of knowledge. Beautiful way to enjoy the island, see Manatee, Pelicans, and the fastest most friendly local duck, Carl! Good times!
Our guide was very knowledgeable and personable, allowing for extended time with the manatees.
Tatiana was our guide & was wonderful!
We had an amazing time and would recommend this to anyone visiting the area. Our guide was very knowledgeable and funny. The manatees swam right next to our kayaks!!
Our guide was delightful - very pleasant to be with, knowledgeable, and very interested in our questions and what we thought
The guide was very knowledgeable.
Our guide was fun with great I formation about the Nangroves and environment! Having the Manatees swim up to the kayaks was an added bonus!!
Alessia was very knowledgeable and just did a great job witch our tour even in the face of an unexpected alligator! We saw lots of manatee and she gave us extra time to enjoy them. First rate tour! We would definitely do it again!

The guides were patient and very informative! It was one of the best guided tour we have been on. Thank you for a wonderful tour of Buck Key Mangrove. Nancy & Bob
The guide! She was awesome
My brother in law had a great time. We were a little worried about being in shape to paddle for two hours but that was unfounded. The tour was beautiful, relaxing and very informative. Would definitely recommend as a must do while in Sanibel/Captiva area. Our guide Alisia (SP) was great.
First time Kayaker's! Mangrove tour was fun and interesting. Our tour guide was personable and knowledgeable!
Well since we basically had a private tour, Joey was very informative and enjoyable to be with for 2 hours .
Our tour guide was very friendly, knowledgeable and professional!
My wife and I truly enjoyed our trip especially thought the tunnel. Seeing the wildlife was also amazing. The Manatees at the end was truly a unique experience. Cory was awesome and very knowledgeable. Thanks again for a great trip.
Malia was a patient and knowledgeable guide, telling us about the geography, the ecology, and history of the area. We have taken kayaking trips around the world, and she was a wonderfully capable guide. We would highly recommend this kayak tour to others looking to take a tour in this area.
The very friendly and knowledgable guide made this kayaking adventure spectacular. Without the knowledge she imparted, some of what we saw wouldn't have been as meaningful. We'd do this trip over and over again!
The guide was great. Very knowledgeable. Kayaking under the trees was magical.
Our tour guide was very informative about the natural wildlife....
Our guide was knowledgeable and guided us at just the right speed to take in all the beautiful scenery.
It was a great day.Joey was a super guide and has a keen eye for spotting wildlife. Our daughters and granddaughters has a wonderful time. This is our second experience with you and owe will be back!!
Really enjoyable. I have visited Florida, incl Sanibel-Captiva many times but had no idea about the Mangrove Trail. Very special, peaceful, interesting. Great guide. And bonus: we had a current returning to shore and that took a bit of effort, but overall it was a perfectly leisurely tour, easy enough for everyone. Thanks for broadening my world!
Loved our guide, seeing manatee, a dolphin swimming next to my son's kayak, the mangrove trail. It was all super special
We had a fantastic time with Bryan & Malia. They were so knowledgeable about the area & a ton of fun too! Highly recommend!!!
Joey was passionate and knowledgeable about the ecosystem in Buck Key. He did a wonderful job explaining nature and history. Thank you!
The guided tour was very informative and fun. Our 2 guides, Maleah and Brian were fabulous. They had so much information about the history of the island and gave us a great tour of the mangroves. We will definitely do another tour w/ this company.
Corey was knowledgeable, personable, and easy to spend time with. She found and showed us a red mangrove crab - very cool. Her passion for the area was obvious. I would use them again.
Maya (forgive me if I misspelled) did an awesome job
Well organized, easy to get all info before going, very friendly while making plans, lots of information during our paddle. Our guide was thorough, relaxed, and clearly worked to make sure we were having fun, We loved her! .
Beautiful place, wonderful guide, we are blessed.
Had a great time the paddling was so smooth are guide was very knowledgeable about the surroundings and the things we seen was cool
This was such a great tour! Our guide, Corey, was so friendly and super knowledgable about the areas we were passing through. She provided a broad background on the history of the area, as well as specific knowledge on the wildlife. The tour was the perfect amount of time, and quite relaxing. We even were able to see a manatee and a dolphin - so cool!
Alessia was a wonderful guide. You could how much she loved the area and she had a lot of information to share!
