Our guide was great. The only issue is that this tour was in a very noisy environment (nearby highway, lots of boat traffic and near two airports) and it was often difficult to hear her otherwise excellent narrative regarding the mangrove environment.

We loved the two hour eco tour with Lindsey! She was so informative and we were amazed at the creatures we learned about, touched and saw up close. This tour was one of my favorite things we did during our recent trip to Key West.
