    Our guide, Aaron F. was relaxed and fun and extremely knowledgeable. He blended our 1 1/2 hour tour with requests about what we’d like to see with sights tha he thought we might enjoy, as it was our first time here. He had a great sense of humor and was kind and respectful and was easy to be around! He was also a great boat driver… We saw about five manatees, tons of great, beautiful birds, spent time in the mangroves and out at sea touring around! This is a great tour, and really interesting… Nice to gain a little knowledge about the place that you were visiting and about the natural environment here.

    A good 90 min boat ride
    Zehui_C, Apr 2024
    It wasn't very memorable for us. It was a nice 90 minute private boat ride. The ocean was beautiful and the weather was great but we didn't learn anything about the eco or animals' habitat. The captain took us around mangrove area but didn't explain anything. We didn't see anything but understood that cannot be planned.

    My wife and I were on vacation in Key Largo. We had the pleasure of having Capt. Meg for the tour. We were able to see a manatee cow and her calf. Top of the highlights of our trip!
    Nice tour
    Amber_M, Mar 2024
    Nice trip to see the Keys from the water. Unfortunately we had bad luck with seeing animals. Still nice, because you need to see Keys from the water.
    I recommend

    A nice little trip to fill in some time and see some of the keys and nature. We saw some birds, and iquanas.
    Manatees galore!
    Carol_B, Feb 2024
    Aaron took us to a canal in his own neighborhood to see manatees. It was great! We stayed there for easily half of our trip and were not disappointed! We were surrounded by manatees swimming around the boat! Would recommend this to everyone!
    Response from Host, Feb 2024

    Captain Bob was a Pleasure. No manatees or alligators but many birds and iguanas. Bob was very friendly.

    Ask for Aaron
    Richard_B, Jan 2024
    Aaron was awesome. He found all the wildlife for us to see and he was super excited about all the manatees we saw at the 4 way. One came up to the back of the boat and stayed for a few. Aaron was so excited because that never happened to him before. Aaron’s enthusiasm for his job really took our trip up a notch. The boat was clean and the price was great. We felt like we got a private boat ride. Only 1 other couple went out with us.

    Thank you for you review, Richard! We are so glad you had a great time with Captain Aaron!
    Great way to see the Keys
    Ernestine_D, Jan 2024
    Bobby did a great job. He found a manatee, showed us a variety of Mangroves, herons, knew about the Ospreys, showed us some beautiful homes on the water and was very respectful, knowledgeable and really knew the waterway. I am disabled and he made sure to help me get on and off the boat. Definitely book this tour and you will see the Keys from the water and enjoy a glorious afternoon!

    Captain Bobby was knowledgeable and fun. Weather was not ideal yet we still had a great time and learned about the area and wildlife. Well done.
    Highly recommended!
    Louise_T, Jan 2024
    This was a wonderful experience! Aaron was very friendly and knowledgeable- sharing fun and interesting facts of the area. He also gave us lots of ideas of sights to see and good restaurants. We were fortunate enough to see some amazing manatees which was definitely a highlight! I highly recommend this tour. The length was perfect and it was great fun.
    Great adventure with a personal touch
    RONALD_C, Jan 2024
    Great to be out on the water and going into the mangroves. The guide who was from Ohio was excellent and spent time explaining all the wild life and history of the area.
    We saw our first manatees!
    Stephen_G, Jan 2024
    Aaron was great! We enjoyed his tour, with just enough informative commentary. We saw our first manatees!

    We had a great time watching the dolphins play with the boat and chase us. Our guide was really knowledgeable and interesting, and he made a great suggestion for a restaurant for lunch!
