There is a good reason that this place has received the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence. The prices are excellent, the kayaks in great condition, and the location is perfect. But the main reason is the service is incomparable. Captain Markus will ensure that you have a great time on the water. The man is also a wealth of knowledge about... More

Marcus did a wonderful job of organizing the afternoon kayak trip. I am a true novice, but felt very supported and encouraged by him.

Had a very nice experience with these folks renting a tandem Kayak for the day rate of $50. Took the kayak out of there boat launch and poked around about 4 miles. You need a combination of GPS and the provided map, as GPS alone does not show impassable mangroves. But the combination of map and GPS works just fine... More

On our team building trip to the Keys, we decided for a nice relaxing change of pace and went for the kayak eco tour . We kept an open mind when we arrived as we had to follow their crew to a location a few miles from the rental site. This was not a big deal, just caught us off... More

8 of us took the 3 hr kayak tour with Capt. Markus last week and had a great time. Capt Markus was well educated on the marine life in the area and was a very entertaining guy to listen to. We didn't have a lot of luck seeing much so he let us stay out an extra hour at no... More

My daughter and I spontaneously stopped in to see if we could go kayaking. Capt. Markus was awesome. We spent as much time talking to him as we did on the water! He gave us a lot of history of the area and great tips on where to go (and how to find our way back!). Paddling around with the... More

I talked to a handful of other rental places and Capt Marcus' friendly character stuck out by a longshot. His love for the land and creatures in the Florida Keys is genuine and you can ask him anything without fear of being talked down to. I am a tourist in a new land, but after spending a little time with... More
