They left before the scheduled time so we got left behind. We were not late at all either. Not cool. I called the company and was told by Sebastian that he would make sure I got a refund and he did not. It was a big joke. The company didnt care about us at all.

AJ, you were a no-show for the trip. Funny how you mention not being late at all. When you first called, I didn't realize that the tour group actually waited for you an extra 15 minutes, and you were not reachable on the phone number on your reservation. You were a no-show.

Mallory I'm very sorry you were disappointed. But we certainly saw this coming given your attitude when you first arrived. It just seemed like nothing was satisfactory to you even before you got into the kayak. Everyone had a wonderful time on that tour, except you. I guess you forgot about the manatee that passed us by. Perhaps kayaking is just not your thing. - Sebastian

We had a nice time, but it turned out to basically be not much more than a pontoon boat ride around for 2 hours.
