Phillip was a magnificent guide -- so passionate about the mangroves and so knowledgeable about the wildlife -- he knew every bird and it was clear he spent so much time in the swamp -- knew where to find the sharks and the ospreys. Can't imagine finding our way through the maze without help -- guide is the only way to go

This activity is a must-do, and I mean a MUST-DO when in Key West!! Phil was our leader and knowledgeable guide. He is a true expert on all things Key West. The mangroves are magical and Phil enhanced the experience greatly. Blue Moon is the ONLY way to go! This is our 5th visit to Key West and we were so sorry we didn't discover Blue Moon sooner. We plan on being repeat customers. Hope to see you again next year Phil!!

Suri was a great guide! Snacks and water were provided. It was leisurely, really peaceful and pretty as well as interesting! Probably the most enjoyable activity we did when we were in Key Largo. I went with two of my sisters and we all thoroughly enjoyed it! (No place to to put family w/o putting teens or young kids, that’s why I put I went solo.)

Aaron was a wonderful guide. Very knowledgeable of the mangroves and the animals and plants. We didn’t see any manatees but we saw sharks, small crabs, hermit crabs, horseshoe crabs and jellyfish. The water is so clear and calm. Would definitely recommend.

Phillip is awesome! My wife and I did the morning kayak trip on 9/13/22. It was just the two of us because another party of two cancelled. We passed by another tour company group during our trip. The other group looked crowded with too many kayaks in tight spaces. I also noticed that their paddles didn’t have the option to come apart like ours did. That was handy when paddling with mangroves on both sides.Phillip is very knowledgeable and shared interesting information about the history, wildlife, and other fun facts throughout the trip. This guy really cares about the area. We saw nurse sharks, fish, various birds and crabs.During our trip I had my prescription sunglasses hit by a branch and fell into the water. Phillip paddled back to me, got out of his kayak and searched for them. Somehow he managed to find them in chest deep water! Waaaaaaay above and beyond!Thank you Phillip & Blue Moon for an amazing day!

If you are easy-going and ready for an adventure, I would strongly recommend this excursion! So much fun, literally one of the most memorable parts of our entire honeymoon. We loved it, thanks again!

My husband and I booked this tour at the recommendation of his parents, who had taken it previously, and we're glad we did! Our tour actually ended up being fairly uh... "exciting," because it rained off and on throughout, complete with an absolute wind and rain storm on our paddle back to the dock. We got a bit of a workout as a bonus to the usual tour! :) Getting to paddle through the mangroves and learn a bit about them was awesome, though, and it was honestly kind of cool to experience that with the rain. There's no was I would have found those mangrove paths and navigated them without the guide! There was also a little bit of time that was used to just let us paddle around and look at things in an open area (that thankfully the rain paused for) that I really enjoyed. I recommend this tour!

My husband, our son and I did the Mangrove Maze kayak tour during our Key West vacation. Everything about the trip was great - booking the trip, finding the location, and the check-in process were quick and easy; the guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and informative. He geared the trip to our skill-level. We would definitely recommend this tour as a low-key way to get out in the water and away from the crowds for a while!

The tour was amazing through the Mangroves of Key West. Phil was the greatest guide. We felt like the two of us were on a private tour.
