We rented two single kayaks and just got to explore on our own through the Mangrove Tunnels and other areas. Reserving the rental and checking in to get the kayaks was simple and quick. We had a great time, we would definitely use them again.

Thank Mary L

We rented two single kayaks at Lido Key. As always, everything was ready, and the assistance was fast, courteous and efficient. This service is outstanding, and after four of the same experiences, we will be back again soon!
