This was our second kayaking trip with Mack! Great experience both times!! Brought our teenagers this time and they had a great time seeing dolphins up close swimming alongside our kayaks! Snorkeled at shell key.. All a fun filled family experience! We traveled from VA, and Mack was very accommodating! We will definitely use Eco Adventures again on our next trip to Tampa!
