Such a fun & knowledgable group of people at Lazy Dog. If you want to get on the water in Key West (and you should), these are the folks to do it with. If you don't know what you're doing, they'll give you instructions. If you sorta know, they'll help out with what you don't. Or, if you do know what you're doing (I do), they're friendly & helpful in getting you on your way. They know kayaks, SUP's & the waters of Key West & love sharing it with others. My favorite is Heather 3 (yes, there are 3 Heathers), who always remembers me & treats me like a returning friend. Along with day kayak trips, I've done their paddlefit & Full Moon paddles, all well done & super fun (their paddlefit is a WORKOUT!).


This was a fantastic kayak trip! We loved the mangrove caves and we went out in the ocean to see the ship wreck! Would definitely do this again if we ever come back!


We didn’t opt for a guided tour, but the staff gave a detail map of the route to take. After we ended our tour and undocked our kayak, we forgot one of our phone on the kayak. The staff was very courteous to check all the arrived kayaks for our phone and finally found it


What a fun little kayak trip through the mangrove. I highly recommend; if you’re into that sort of thing. The kayak was, also, very comfortable.


We had a great time exploring the mangroves, even the really small tunnels. We were given a map and explored on our own. The staff was friendly and helpful. Next time I would love to do the tour and have a guide to explain the area.


Great day! The mangrove tunnels and salt ponds were so worth it! Saw starfish, manatees, horseshoe crabs, jellyfish, and lots of fish. Don’t skip trip 2! Directions and map from staff helped a lot.


Awesome experience! Detailed map instructions, super cool vibe, friendly employees, amazing views, nicely maintained equipment.


So much fun! Easy reservation process, excellent map instructions, super friendly and inclusive vibe, nicely maintained equipment. Fabulous girls trip activity! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️


Value and experience are unmatched! Great for experienced or inexperienced kayakers. Highly recommend!


We went kayaking for about 3 hours. Despite getting lost, it was an exciting trip with family. Very affordable price. I recommended when traveling to key west!. Thanks
