Located next to Santini Marina, we rented 2 paddle boards for an afternoon paddle. Price was $35 dollars for the first hour and second hour was free. Was a nice paddle out of the canal and around a mangrove island. Seen a manatee while in the canal and paddled over the top of one in the bay at only about... More

My mom and I had a wonderful time with the "crazy ladies" they were very kind local people who truly wanted you to see the best of their home! We saw manatees and it was the closest ive ever been to wild dolphins, I recommend them for anyone who wants to have a great relaxing kayaking experience!

Everything was good however, I don't understand them not taking credit cards. After all, this is a tourist area. I never carry much cash while on vacation, it just makes sense not too. Would have rated a 4 or 5 had it not been for that issue.

My wife and I have been on a guided tour and out on our own, both great experiences. I recommend a guided tour even for those with extensive Kayak experience, allowing you to get familiar with the Bay. Our guide (a safari guide in the "off season") was quite emotional regarding the spotting of marine and wild life and to... More

While we were disappointed not to see manatees and only caught a glimpse of one dolphin, birds and mangroves kept us fascinated. There were four of us and we opted to go with a guide (Colleen) who was very informative and great to hang out with for a couple of hours. They were very prompt in returning my call and... More

This is the first time I took my family with two kids(12 and 10) to go kayak. We had a great time. Dana and their team are wonderful! They showed us all around and very much fun in the water! The best! If you come to this area, don't miss them. I will definitely go back!

We went out for a paddle with Dana as our guide. She was very knowledgeable of the keys, wildlife, and history of the area. We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 hours with her. We have kayaks at home but found going out with her explained so much about the local area. She was excited like we were when a pair of... More

Had a great experience with Crazy Woman Kayaks! The previous reviews were spot on. Great service, no waiting, clean, and the equipment was in great condition. Our sales lady was friendly and informative!

In December 2016 my kids and I paddled with a group of folks in the Back Bay waters of Fort Myers Beach, Florida. We rented kayaks and gear from the Crazy Woman Kayak Company, plus used the guide provided at a small charge. Whoever paddles with the guide will learn about the local history and obtain firsthand knowledge of the... More

Perfect! Before I even put my paddle in the water I knew I made the right choice. New kayaks, first rate equipment, dry land safety check. And, and step down ladder for easy dockside loading. Bravo Ms. Sissel! I'll shall return.
