Fun Kayaking for First Timer Family
, Jun 2021
Our family of 4, 1st time kayakers (mom & dad 40+ & 16&18yr old daughters) really enjoyed our tour with Bethanny! We learned so much, enjoyed sliding through the shaded mangroves & even paddling through the currents on a rather windy day. It was a fun, unique, slightly sporty Key West adventure, which our family ALL enjoyed! Thank you to our cool, knowledgeable & friendly tour guide Bethanny! We loved learning about & touching so many cool sea creatures she found for us!
Great experience.
