Vivid facts about the estuary
, Oct 2021
Our guide Stephen was amazing - we were learning about all sorts of estuary stuff before we entered the water. He remembered our names and asked us questions to engage everyone. Stephen was super cool with educating our 7 y.o. and we enjoyed the mini-aquarium he would put together for all of the group to see the underwater stuff temporarily. Truly a vivid experience for our family and we hope to enjoy again on another vacation.
Manatees in the Mangroves.
, Oct 2021
Our guide Stephen did a great job explaining the environment answering our questions and asking the guests questions to keep us all engaged. Never felt rushed AND we were lucky enough to see Manatees.
Do it!!!!
, Oct 2021
Educational, beautiful, and a wonderful experience….learned crucial things regarding ecosystem and how we can help …..incredible manatee sightings!!! They played around our kayaks for about 30 minutes….great experience for children and adults alike. Our guide Stephen (Lake and Bowser) were exceptional!!!!
Great trip, highly recommended to anyone!

We enjoyed the kayak tour with Steven. He was very knowledgeable about the mangrove ecosystem. We were lucky to see manatees, dolphins, tarpons and a vary large and colorful iguana.
A perfect outing
, Sep 2021
A very apt and knowledgeable guide who explains the ecosystem and ecology very well. Very friendly and personable who definitely makes sure you are enjoying your outing. Thanks to him I was able to show my wife some wonderful sights and the manatees in the bay. Very respectful of nature and cleans up what trash irresponsible people have discarded, much respect for that as I do the same thing in my home state.
Relaxing and educational
, Sep 2021
We had a great time with Steven. Wish we had seen more Manatee and other wildlife, but they did not want to play this morning. Steven did however pull up some neat little life forms from the bottom for us to see including a seahorse, brittle starfish, tiny flounder, shrimp, and other little things I can’t even remember the name of them. You can tell he loves his job and he is good at it.
Awesome trip!

This trip was awesome! Steven is extremely knowledgeable about the area, the wildlife and the sea creatures!
It was exactly what I hoped for
, Aug 2021
Dolphins swimming right next to us for about 15 minutes was incredible. Guide was amazing and super knowledgeable.. I would do it again.
Hot day but so worth it
, Jul 2021
Had a fantastic time with Stephen and his dog on our tour. He is so knowledgeable and truly has a passion for wildlife and the ecosystem. He was patient and great with our 8 year old. We learned a ton and saw so many things we wouldn’t have. We learned how to spot manatees and saw quite a few. Thanks for a great day (even if it was hot)!
Knowledgeable local guide
, Jul 2021
Stephen is passionate and very knowledgeable. We hung out with manatees and dolphins for a long time. He shared a lot of information about preserving the mangroves and talked about local flora and fauna. We would definitely do this again
