There was 3 hour kayaking/snorkeling tour that my husband and I enjoyed a lot. Nick showed us many interesting species living in Florida Keys such as Nurse and Lime Sharks, stone crab, stingrays..Nick was very intelligent and professional guide. We had plenty of fun.

My wife and I went out with Nick, having never kayaked before. What a cool thing to do for an afternoon. Informative about the area and patient helping us navigate/handle the kayak.

Lovely paddle through the mangroves and across the water and under the bridge. We saw millions of little (non stinging) jellyfish- they were amazing and everywhere, like art glass. Sadly, our trip leader had little or nothing to say the entire trip, although she did...More

I'm not sure. We rented the boats and had Chris as our guide. I suggest calling and asking the owner. He is very nice and easy to work with. Have fun!
I want to take the group tour with my wife. Do they have Kayaks that sit two people? My wife is really scared of water so also want to understand if the Kayaks are stable and safe.
