The mangroves were awesome! make sure you go at high tide. Definitely worth the trip. The kayaks are easy to use and fun to play.
No signs

There was very little signage and not very organized. No clear directions on where to go or who to contact.

Excellent Kayak Trip
Donna_D, Apr 2024
We enjoyed kayaking through the mangroves. Jenny was an experienced tour guide and was able to easily manipulate low tide and windy conditions. She knew a lot about the birds we saw and the mangroves themselves. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience!
Fiasco on Clear Kayak Tour.
Robert_E, Mar 2024
The equipment was defective. The seat back/cushion is attached to the kayak by 4 hooks and connect to sides of the kayak. One of hocks was broken, as admitted by the tour guide, but the kayak was still placed into use. With one hock not attached to the kayak, the back/cushion keep moving forward so I was leaning backwards while paddling. It is very difficult to paddle the kayak while leaning backwards. The tour guides adjusted the back/cushion and replaced it with another one. The problem was not the seat back/cushion but the broken hook. Our kayaking trip was aborted before we even reached the halfway point of the tour. The tour guide took no responsibility whatsoever for the fiasco.
Great experience
Daniel_D, Mar 2024
Jenny was a fantastic guide. We rowed in open water and then closer to the trees. We got to see some of the birds, tree crabs, and a crocodile! Great experience all around. Wear sunscreen, even on cloudy days. Highly recommend, would do again
Uncomfortable

Emily_H, Sep 2023
Albee was very knowledgeable of the terrain and wildlife. The tandem kayak made the afternoon very easy and relaxing. Good outing for something a little different.

Nice tour but don’t need a Tour guide
Jory_B, May 2023
Seeing the mangroves was nice but didn't see any wildlife and it was longer then it needed to be. For this reason, I felt it was over priced because the tour guide didn’t add any value. I could’ve read a trail map and saw nothing myself.
Response from Host, May 2023
I'm sorry to hear that your experience on the kayak tour was not what you had hoped for. It's understandable that you were disappointed in not seeing any wildlife, as that can be a major draw for many nature tours. However, it's important to keep in mind that wildlife sightings are never guaranteed and can be influenced by a variety of factors such as weather, time of day, and season. As for the length of the tour, it's possible that the guide had planned for a longer route to ensure that participants had ample time to enjoy the natural surroundings and to maximize the chances of wildlife sightings. However, I understand that everyone has different preferences and endurance levels, and what may seem like a reasonable amount of time to one person may not be the case for another. Regarding the value of the tour, it's important to consider the expertise and knowledge that the guide brings to the experience. A guide can provide valuable insights and information about the ecosystem, wildlife, and history of the area that may not be readily available on a map or through independent exploration. Additionally, the guide can help ensure safety and offer assistance in case of any issues that may arise during the tour. Overall, while I understand your perspective, I would encourage you to consider the benefits of having a knowledgeable guide and the unpredictable nature of wildlife sightings. It's possible that with a different perspective and mindset, you may find more value in the experience in the future.
Wonderful experience
Ireneusz_P, Mar 2023
Very nice and unique experience. A lot of beautiful birds and knowledgeable guide. Interesting landscape.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Hi Irene, Thanks for the great review of your clear kayak tour through the mangroves of Miami! We are happy you enjoyed yourself and hope to have you back out for another paddle soon!
It was OK
Patricia_G, Mar 2023
Nice trip but not worth the price. The tour guide was very kind and we saw many birds, but I would say it was quite expensive for what it was.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thanks a bunch for your feedback as this is how we are able to continually improve our services. It sounds like the tour guide was five star but potentially the price was too high for what you were expecting. We will work hard to constantly increase our value for our guests as we think we actually deliver an amazing service at the price we are at. With guides that are inviting, knowledgeable, that offer to snag some photos/videos, local knowledge and tips, highest quality clear kayaks, clean equipment, and access to a serene part of North Miami Beach, we are hopeful all guests feel extremely positive about the values we provide! If there's something we missed the mark on at all, please feel free to let me know directly at miami@getupandgokayaking.com so we can make sure to make it right for you.
Amazing and fun
beatriz_C, Feb 2023
Alby was our tour guide. Alby is great he is friendly and knowledgeable. We were a good size group different ages and strength. Alby let us know from the beginning if we got tired to let him know. He waited for everyone and made no sure no one fell behind. It rained on us and it added so much more beauty to our trip. Alby kayaked through that rain like a pro.
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Hi Beatriz! Thanks for joining us for a clear kayak tour through the mangroves of Miami! We are glad to hear the rare case of Florida rain in the spring did not hamper your trip out. Please dont be a stranger and join us for a paddle again soon!
Great!
Alexandra_L, Jan 2023
Beautiful mangrove tour! So many birds!! Tour guide was awesome! The clear kayaks were difficult to steer and not much is visible through the brackish water, definitely do a normal kayak if you have the option. Probably better at high tide for navigability. Overall, worth going! Small group size and a less populated tour.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Hi Alexandra! We are glad you enjoyed our clear kayak tour through the mangroves of Miami! We only take small groups out for tours to ensure each guest has the opportunity to really engage with the guides and get personal attention. We certainly hope to see you back out for another paddle again real soon!
The most enjoyable kayak 👍

A relaxing and educational tour of the mangroves
Cindy_M, Aug 2022
Alby and Shannen were excellent tour guides. It was educational and relaxing exploring the mangroves. Finding flocks of Ibis in their natural habitat was a highlight. They were very knowledgeable about the bird species and the mangroves.
Response from Host, Aug 2022
