    This was a very good day spent kayaking with Matt. Matt was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot of about the Rookery Bay Mangrove area. He found a lot of things for us to look at. I would highly recommend this tour and Matt. Thank you!

    It was a beautiful kayak. We learned about the ecosystem and saw a lot of different wildlife, including dolphins. Our guide, Michael, is a biologist by training and we really enjoyed him. Super knowledgeable and he did a great job answering questions. This was a highlight of our trip to Marco.

    We loved our mangrove excursion with Matt. He is good Naturalist and he knew how to make us discover this impressive ecosystem. The scenery is fantastic. This activity was among our favorites of our entire trip to Florida. I highly recommend.

    Our guide, Matt, was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour as well. I learned a lot about Florida and it’s wildlife, mangroves and the ecosystem, got some fresh air and exercise, and had fun at the same time! I enjoyed the tour, and would recommend it!!

    We had a great guide...can't remember her name but she is from Michigan and is an actual scientist. The kayaks, seats and life vests were all brand new and super clean. We would like to go back and do the boat tour with this same guide. Also, we booked it online the night before and they got it and had everything ready.

    Colleen and Paul were so knowledgeable about the area! They let the group set the pace, and pointed out all the wildlife as we went through. We had great interactions and conversation with them! We saw lots of birds and even a couple of dolphins!

    We were fortunate enough to have our guides, Colleen and Paul, all to ourselves as a family of seven - five adults and two boys, ages 5 and 4.5. A great time was had by all. Navigating the mangroves and tying up the kayaks to "walk on the water" was a lot of fun! Saw starfish and a weird jellyfish too. Great exercise! Learned a lot about mangroves and the environment. A great family outing! Thank you!

    We had an amazing time! Matt was so knowledgeable and a great communicator. We enjoyed learning about the mangroves and were thrilled to see lots of wildlife: a jellyfish, osprey, crabs, and even a mother and baby dolphin! We would love to do this tour again. We wish Matt the best in his studies in Australia!

    Our guide, Matt was terrific! He was fun, friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. This was my first time kayaking and he really did make me feel comfortable. It was a fun and educational tour. My husband and I enjoyed it very much!
