Great Kayak Tour.

Booked the 10:00 morning tour. Instructions were given on how to paddle and then we were off. Lindsey was our guide, along with Donnie her dog who knew exactly what to do and where to sit/stand on her paddle board. Lindsey showed us a jellyfish in her hand, a small starfish which you could hold, and pulled a horseshoe crab out of the water. Of course once Donnie got a glimpse of the crab he jumped into the water trying to get at it. So fun. We paddled through multiple mangrove tunnels which were very cool. Definitely recommend Lazy Dog Kayaks.

Bethany was a fantastic guide. She was very knowledgeable and patient. The trip was just the right pace; not difficult at all. We stopped in various spots to learn about the ecosystem and mangroves in Key West. We were allowed to hold a horseshoe crab and a starfish along the way. Highly recommend.
