No refund give if you prepay for Kayaking but can’t use due to weather conditions. We were advised not to go out by staff.

I made the reservations online and the instructions were to contact the tour company direct to confirm. This took some persistence and We finally got in contact with them after many calls and was able to confirm. We got the kayaks with no problem on our day so that part is acceptable. We requested full size kayaks but they showed up with a smaller one and a larger one so we made it work. The fellows that met us at the landing to deliver kayaks knew little about the area and said they were out of maps so we were lucky to run into one of their competitors that gave us good info to make the best of our time. It was important to us to find a self guided rental so this company worked in that regard. If your looking for equipment to be there for your use they were ok. Just go up on shore by the public landing and review that map that shows the route of the water trail through the mangrove. We enjoyed ourself and covered 5 miles in3.5 hrs. Saw two dolphins. Regardless who you get kayaks from it is a must do and we will do it again.
Unique experience

Really good kayaking! Unique experience going through three mangrove tunnels and got to see the manatees up close! Followed a family for a while. Navigating can be a little tricky but using GPS definitely helped.
no manatees or dolphins
, Mar 2019
Windy, wavy, and wet Too far to get to where we were going. And nothing there. Access to the water was dangerous . Guide did not stay in tight enough group to hear what was being said about the area.

Had an awesome time getting to kayak wherever we want at our own leisure. So several manatee and also several dolphins. Along with many other wildlife creatures. Definite must on anyone's trip to the area. Would do it every day if I could.
