Nature never ceases to amaze us here at AquaVentures. Around every meandering bend of the mangrove tunnels lies a new discovery!

Lots of fun. Double kayaks for four of us and 1 single. Miranda suggested that we not take out glass kayaks as it was rough in open waters that days. That’s true honesty from her as that was an additional $60 she could have made but we would have taken longer to travel as they are more likely to tip over than the other kayaks. We made it to the sand bar and the kids 2 - 15 year olds and 1 - 10 year old walked around searching for cool stuff. Masks were provided also and the kids really took advantage of them. Didn’t ever get to see a starfish but did see several other animals of the ocean. Totally recommend to any family wanting to be out in the ocean for several hours and have an experienced guide.

Excellent way to spend half the day! Personable and professional guidance by Miranda, who clearly knows the many and varied habitats of the Keys and is excited to show them to you! Be prepared to get wet and wear those water sandals. Paddling is minimal to moderate vigorousness. She brings cold water and snacks and a dry bag. Leave your phone/camera behind- she gets photos during the trip and shares them later.

Miranda was a fantastic host and tour guide! She and her partner made everyone feel comfortable from the start. She took her time pointing out so much wildlife in the ocean and answering all of our questions. The sandbar was fun to explore and a great break mid-trip. The mangroves were beautiful! Our tip wrapped up with a dolphin catching fish. What a perfect afternoon in the Keys!

Miranda is a very knowledgeable young lady! As we paddled through the Mangrove tunnels, she explained how fresh water mangroves grow in sea water, pointing out tiny little crabs. And then, out into the mangrove centre ponds and finding jelly fish basking in the sun! fantastic!

This was an amazing experience for our group! We saw tons of wildlife: birds, sharks, tarpon, manatees, sharks, lobsters, sting rays, and fish (to name a few). Miranda was a phenomenal guide! She knows so much science and history about the areas we were in and that really enhanced our experience. This was one of our favorite things we did while we were in the Keys!
