We had an excellent time on the guided tour. It was the perfect adventure to bring my 5 y/o along for. Our guide Angel was very knowledgeable and we learned a great deal about the ecology of Buck Key.

It is possible to rent kayaks from 'Adventure' and explore on your own, but I recommend starting with one of their tours. The tours (in either single or tandem kayaks--the real thing, not ride-on-top plastic toys) are led by staff with degrees in marine biology....More

Great kayaking experience with a low key approach! Kayaked for over two hours - seeing manatee and dolphins. Nice adventure through the mangroves. Very reasonable on price.
