Really enjoyed the Eco-Tour on the Java Cat. Capt. Bethany was very knowledgable, and made the trip fun and relaxing. She worked hard to make it easy on us. Kayak was in great condition, and the sailing was excellent. Highly recommended for novices and experienced as well. Our guide was informative and helpful. Also had a great view of the... More

Great trip. Saw at least 8 dolphins. We were the only boat watching them play and we stayed and hung out for about 45 min. Too rough to snorkel but that was fine by us. Rob took us a new way home and around Sunset key and gave us tons of info. Loved every minute. 5 stars. Highly recommend.

We took a 2 hour tour through the mangroves, and we were led by our guide Tortuga Jack. He was amazing! Really knowledgeable and informative. We saw a nurse shark, a ray, a barracuda, and lots of jellyfish. It was the highlight of our Key West vacation!

We loved our week in Key West and the highlight was our trip kayaking and snorkeling with Key West Eco Tours. John is a fabulous guide and very informative. He gave us so much history about Key West, about the natural environment and habitat surrounding Key West. We are family of 5 with two 20 year old sons and one... More

We had a very good time on this excursion. On our way out we were told to tell them if we saw any dolphins be they would stop. It must have been our lucky day as we saw 4 and two came and swam right beside the boat. The guide was very accommodating and knowledgeable. He also prepared some snacks... More

Enjoyed a catamaran excursion to part of the Key West National Wildlife Refuge. Bird life was abundant and our captain was terrific at identifying birds and sharing birding knowledge. Especially enjoyed kayaking inside of a mangrove and hearing the cacophony of bird calls. Great to swim off the boat-- enjoyed swimming more than the snorkeling-- as advertised the marine life...

My husband and I randomly booked a Kayak tour while walking past the catamaran that they had in Key West. We showed up at Geiger Key Marina for the morning Kayak Mangrove tour. Our guide was Tortuga Jack. He was very knowledgeable and funny. They take you through the Mangroves and you stop and rest enough so that if you... More

Wow! First time the wife and I ever thought about jumping into a kayak together...same thing for our daughter and her boyfriend. Talk about a couples team building challenge? So where to go in Key West? No idea, but what came highly recommended by many people throughout all the tour groups down and around the various tourist traps on Duval... More
