    Jennifer's mangrove kayaking trip was extremely fun, educational, not strenuous at all. Laid back, but very enjoyable. Jennifer made sure she included all kayakers in her talks and sharing her information about the mangroves and the area.

    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!
