We had a beautiful kayak tour with Connie on 23/03/18. We had to actually reschedule our tour from two days before due to high winds but Connie was great about contacting us and making a new time that would work before I had to leave...More

So glad that you enjoyed the tour. It was a pleasure paddling with the two of you and I hope that we get to do it again some day.
To start I did an estuary tour with Connie and about six others, so eight people in total. Prior to the tour starting I thought I would be late due to traffic, and it explicitly says to call the guide if you happen to get...More

My experience with Connie started before we arrived. She was pro-active in reaching out to share information after I had called and not left a message. She talked through the options available and I booked over the phone. On the day of our tour, we...More
This review is a little late in coming! We went on 2 of Connie's tours in May 2017 and had a wonderful time! She has good equipment and is very knowledgeable about birds and the mangroves and the area. Since we booked two tours we...More

Even getting past that, the tour...More

This is Connie responding to this review. Hopefully I will be allowed to answer this properly and not limited by the length that is permitted.
Right after the tour I made notes in my appointment book that states that this group of 6 people were...More
We spent a three hour kayak tour with a most informative guide, Connie, giving us a comprehensive understanding of the estuary system surrounding the manatee habitat.
The embellishments went beyond just the manatee's movements, and included information about the flora and fauna, aviary and reptile...More
If you want something cool to do in Fort Myers, take a kayak tour & see the Manatee! These tours only operate in the winter months. I just took the first tour of the season & it was great! Connie was full of Manatee fun...More
Our family of four (all adults) went on the estuary tour (in kayaks). Connie was an excellent guide. She taught us many things and helped us identify many birds. We are avid birders and appreciated Connie's quick eye and her knowledge, which seemed right on...More
