We were welcomed with smiles and felt the personalized service from beginning to end. The information shared by our guide on the mangrove history and vegetation was enriching. Really cool to go through the tunnels. We would recommend it if you want to do something quite unique.


This tour was awesome! The mangrove tunnels were amazing. Our tour guide made sure everyone knew the basics of paddleing and was very knowledgeable about the area. Our family had a great time and would definitely go again.


Kelly was a fun upbeat tour guide! He was very knowledgeable of the area and ecosystem. I felt safe and enjoyed the time. Would recommend!


We were lucky enough to see both dolphins and manatees. Our guide Chris is knowledgeable and very helpful, we had a lovely time thanks


We had an amazing time! Kelly guided us thru the mangrove trails, he was awesome. We saw manatee, dolphins, cormorants and other birds and wildlife. It was a great time, educational and enjoyable.


This tour was great. We were sad when our 2 hours on the water were up! Our guide was very knowledgeable and there was beautiful scenery. I’d definitely book this tour again!


Not only was it a fun day in the sun and great calm waters, and seeing wildlife, including eight manatees, but the knowledge that we gained of the area, the history the ecology, and just walked away with a much deeper appreciation of what the area has to offer


Alex was so nice and fun, it was my first time paddle boarding but he was a good instructor. Can’t wait to come again


Amazing experience paddle boarding the mangrove in Lido. Alex was a great and knowledgeable guide. We got to see manatees, upside down jelly fish, starfish, sea urchin, and plenty of birds.


The paddle board is so much funnnn! We had a great time. The mangrove tunnel is fun to explore. We saw manatees but unfortunately no dolphins. A lot of other people are kayaking, and I can see their jealousy when they passed us by. It is so worth the money and the time to have this tour, especially if this is your first time doing paddle board. BTW, I am still waiting for the photos that Aaron had promised to send me "later". 我们是第一次玩paddle board,刚开始有点紧张,但是适应了之后就特别开心。红树林也很有趣,可以看到很多小鱼。划板上可以站着,可以跪着,可以坐着,是很好的接触海水的机会。我们以前玩过kayak,感觉这个比kayak更自由更恣意。推荐!! 他们会提供防水包,只能放下手机和车钥匙。建议穿长袖,戴帽子,做好防晒,穿比较容易干的裤子。
