    Jennifer was an amazing guide. She was friendly and so knowledgeable. We learned so much! My 14 year old son and I enjoyed it thoroughly. The mangroves are beautiful. Saw fish jumping next to our kayak, various birds, crabs, dolphins. It was excellent!

    Jennifer at Finseekers was great at arranging our guided tour and was very knowledgable about the estuary and the eco system. We were lucky to hang out with 4 manatees and a dolphin this morning! A fantastic day...thanks Funseekers!

    Jennifer was a great and informative guide. The Kayaks were easy to use. Seeing the mangrove tunnel and dolphins in the gulf were highlights! Our teens 14 and 16 enjoyed it thoroughly too. Looking for something we’d all enjoy - this was it!!

    We didn’t see any. They usually stay close to shore or float on something to get some sun. I wouldn’t worry at all about gators!
