Karen was an excellent guide. She was knowledgeable and had an obvious love of nature and conservation. We have already started to recognize birds that she pointed out! There were minimal large animal sightings but my family of teens and young adults thoroughly enjoyed themselves. You will not regret booking this outing or having Karen lead the way!

My husband and I LOVED the guided tour with Karen! She was very personable and knowledgeable about the wildlife that enters/leaves Lover’s Key. Our interest was kept the entire trip. We appreciated all of the pictures she took and shared with us later in the day. We look forward to returning.

Just did this tour a couple days ago when visiting SW Florida with my sisters. I cannot say enough good things about this tour! Not only was it a beautiful day, and we got to see manatees, dolphins, an iguana, and many birds… our guide Steve was THE BEST! His personality and jokes were wonderful, but I leaned SO much! His knowledge just blew me away. He made this trip! He was sure to collect some things from the water so we could see and more things beneath the water and learn about the importance of all aspects of these waters. I would recommend this trip with Steve to everyone! I would absolutely go back again!

Where to begin? Our guide, Steve and his trusty beagle Bowser (who stood on the SUP the entire time) guided us through the bay / estuaries easily and had so much amazing information to share about the ecosystem there. We learned so much - it was honestly beyond what was expected. We saw manatees (including a baby), a dolphin momma and her calf playing, an iguana in the mangroves, mullet fish, egrets, great blue herons, crabs, tarpon…. It was AMAZING!!! Disclaimer: animal sightings are never guaranteed obviously so we had our fingers crossed that we would get lucky and see some SW FL marine life. Bring lots of sunscreen and water for your paddle.

My wife and I did the Estuary Tour with Lovers Key Adventures. What made the tour outstanding was our tour guide, Stephen Denmark. He shared so much knowledge about the ecosystem during the tour, that it wasn’t just about looking for dolphins and manatees. He collected samples of sea creatures and offered the group the opportunity to see and touch, if appropriate, before he returned them to their natural habitat. His passion for the environment was so evident and infectious. His knowledge, sense of humour and relaxed attitude truly made the trip memorable. We will be repeat customers.
