Heather was very helpful. She explained how to use the paddle to maneuver the kayak with ease. We experienced a shark, held a jellyfish, saw various sponges and learned about the habitat. My favorite part was kayaking through the mangrove tunnels. Thanks for the great adventure in Key West.

We enjoyed an excellent morning kayak tour with Lindsey, our very knowledgeable guide. The tour thru mangrove tunnels was fascinating. Even though we have lived in the Keys and are avid marine enthusiasts, we learned several fascinating facts on this trip. I highly recommend Lazy Dog for all levels of kayaking and marine experience! The highlight was seeing a huge momma and little baby manatee before leaving the marina! Very memorable trip with an excellent, enthusiastic guide!!

From start to finish this was an excellent experience. Art guide was amazing, very knowledgeable and friendly. I would highly recommend this trip to anybody wanting to get into the mangroves and see all that incredible wildlife that Key West has to offer. On our trip we even had the added bonus I’ve seen a mama manatee and her baby.

The guide was very knowledgeable and fun. She made it an easy paddle, and as a beginner I was worried it would be too long, but it was very enjoyable. She found and pointed out multiple types of creatures in this amazing ecosystem.
