Customer service was great

Although we didn't get to take the tour because the winds were to bad the whole time we were in the area, I really loved their customer service. First our flight was delayed by 15 hrs, which caused us to get to the area late. Th He vendor was able to change our booking time with no problem. They also called us to reschedule due to high winds, but since we only had 2 days to play, they offered us a full refund. If we are back in the area again I will for sure do this.

A fun paddle through mangrove tunnels and out to a little island covered with shells. We saw several dolphins hunting up close, passed a small flock of roseate spoonbills and had cormorants diving under the kayaks. Charlie was a great guide, giving lots of interesting tips and history of the area, while helping us with our kayaks, finding shells, and good-naturedly answering non-stop questions.

Grace, our tour guide couldn’t have been more friendly and knowledgeable. I understand she graduated with a degree in marine biology and shared all of the cool animal facts with the kids which made the whole experience. I really hope she gets to read this and everyone gets to experience a tour with her.
