Ryan lead our group trip which was fun and educational. The time just flew by. It was windy when we went and so we had to dig hard to paddle into the wind. It was fun and everyone in our group was able to handle the task. Perfect activity for couples, families, etc.

Wonderful kayak tour with Ryan who is super knowledgeable and passionate about the mangroves, wildlife and Florida's ecosystem. Everyone of our group of 8 enjoyed it from age 13 to 70+.
Several of us have done other FL mangrove tours and this is by far the BEST one ever!! Ryan even provided photos afterwards by email.
Thank you Rising Tide Explorers for a fun and educational tour.

First timers kayaking and Ryan's knowledge of the mangroves made our trip so much fun. A special thanks to Terry for not letting us drift out to the gulf ;)
