What to Expect
Prepare for a full day of adventure, starting with an early morning pickup from your Miami-Dade County or Fort Lauderdale hotel or another convenient meeting location. Meet your naturalist guide and get acquainted on the drive to a nature sanctuary. Once there, choose to take a kayak or stand-up paddleboard out to tranquil seagrass flats that are perfect for beginners to navigate. You may see sharks, barracudas, sea turtles, manatees, and a wide variety of fish. Paddle further to an old growth mangrove forest—the sea’s natural nursery—as you listen to your guide explain more about this complex ecosystem. Have lunch on a chartered boat before heading out for some snorkeling. Then, explore two different coral reef locations in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. Look for birds, rays, dolphins, tropical fish and more turtles. Your tour ends with drop-off at your original pickup location.

Everything was well tuned. The van is new and all the equipment are top quality. The guide, Stacy, was taking care of the group and manage to provide them the best experience by looking for wild life to observe. I had an amazing day. I recommend it. Probably too demanding

We had a great time with the tour leaders Ben and Stacey and the small group of fellow travelers on the eco tour. We loved the snorkeling and saw loads of fish, basking sharks and several sting rays. We would absolutely do this again (hope to see a manatee next time! : )

We only had one free a day in Ft Lauderdale so we wanted to make sure the excursion we took were feature packed and had a good use of time. We knew we wanted to go to the Keys and researched several options before deciding on Wild Lime. It was one of the best decisions we made

We are humbled by your review of your experience with us. You mentioned so many wonderful specifics about what you saw, and how you felt about the tour. Thank you for that! In particular, I'm glad you mentioned seeing the crocodile. Can you believe it!? I'll be honest we had never seen the croc in that location before, so it kind of threw us off guard for sure :). Stacy and Elijah really enjoyed spending the day with you. Please connect with us again whenever you are back in town!

We had an absolutely wonderful time on the Florida eco adventure! Both Ben and Stacy were so awesome. We called Sunday evening and they rearranged their schedules just to be able to take us the following day as it was our only chance to go. They provided everything. Plenty of

Wild Lime Adventures is a full service adventure tour company. Picked us up at our hotel door. They had water, snacks, sunblock, towels - whatever you need. Our guide, Sandy, was wonderful. She was super patient with my scared and sea sick daughter. She also stopped by her house

Thank you for mentioning all of the marine life you saw on the guided paddle tour. We love how detailed you were here. Quite sorry that your daughter did not feel well on the boat. It happens sometimes, but I hope she felt much better as soon as her feet hit dry land. We appreciate the opportunity to spend the day with you and your family two separate days!
