Kayak Andy was great, knowledgeable and patient! The mangrove trails and open water were enjoyable and the wildlife was plentiful including birds, fish, sharks and 2 crocodiles! Andy even saved a pelican bound by a fishing line! Would highly recommend this trip!

We took a 2-hour kayak tour through the mangroves with 8 people in double kayaks (including 4 kids, ages 10 to 14). The kids could have handled their own kayaks, but the guide wanted us in doubles because of the wind. After navigating through the...More

These guys were awesome. Great areas to kayak. If doing the big mangrove loop. I would do it backwards at high tide so you can coast and look for feeding fish vs working against the current.

We had the best time! Great guidance from Frank. We rented a tandem kayak for 1/2 day and decided to tour the mangroves. We saw crocodiles, iguanas, nurse sharks, and lots of other critters (even a raccoon)! You can't go wrong with the Kayak Shack!

They rent them but I'm not sure if you can launch your own there? There are plenty of spots nearby you could launch however.
