Great tour and tour guide. Wyatt was very informative with a great deal of fun and humour thrown in. We are visiting from U.K. and if we ever come back this would be top of the list.
Peter was awesome
Our guide, Mark, was very knowledgeable, patient and strong. 'Saltwater in his veins'. :) I got to rub a manatees nose and kayak past wild dolphins. Wonderful.
Our guide was excellent and we saw spectacular wildlife!
Awesome! We got all our expectations. Lots of manatees, mangroves and a bonus with a dolphin swimming by and catching for fish! Our kids love the experience too. My daughter has her own kayak being pulled by our guide. And he gave her lesson too! What a pleasant and great guide. Thanks Wyatt!
Mark was a great guide that showed us many wild animals while respecting their space. He gave us good paddling tips, navigating us through a stiff wind and current showing us quiet spots with many manatee, dolphins fishing, an alligator and lots of water fowl. We went in double kyaks with our 11&12 year olds and we all enjoyed the paddle.
The guide was excellent and paced the tour for all of us. We saw lots of manatees, dolphins and birds. Well worth it!
Did not hear guide at all Late leaving as other guests went to wrong spot. Felt we were also short on the2 hour advertised. Price awesome for this Thursday deal. Equipment and instruction excellent. First time guests enjoyed it immensely.
We had a great time. Christian was very knowledgeable and a great guide.
Great experience. Great tour guide - Dylan dropped all kinds of knowledge and was very helpful towards my mom who got tired towards the end. He ended up towing her kayak back to shore. Saw a ton of manatees and dolphins. Couldn't have asked for a better experience and would recommend to others.
Absolutely fabulous. The trip lived up to its name. We saw Dolphins, lots of Manatees and even a pair of Bald Eagles. We highly recommend this kayak trip.
We had a great time and saw lots of manatees up close and even a dolphin. Our guide Christian was great and let us take things at our own speed. We will be doing this again soon and are recommending BK Adventure and Christian to others.
Our guide Christian was great! And the manatees were so friendly and lovely!!! We even saw dolphin :) It would have been easier if BK posted google map on the website to show the launch location instead of old fashion direction lol
The guide was a legend and we saw some manatees
Amazing guide and an amazing tour! Will absolutely be back for another. It was great to take our seven and ten year old kids on as well. They loved getting to see all the wildlife, especially the manatees!
