A must do for your bucket list! Tim is very passionate about what he does and it shows in his enthusiasm as he gives information about the animals and area. I was very impressed with his skills spotting animals both hidden in the mangroves as well as several feet down below the surface of the water. At the beginning of December, we saw a Pygmy seahorse, a Kingfisher, Pelicans, and other water birds, crabs, pipefish, as well as dolphins. He went diving underwater to retrieve a lightning whelk for us to examine a little closer as well as live sand dollars, a crab and a sea urchin. It was a very interactive experience! Tim also takes pictures along the way so you don’t have to risk taking your expensive phone with you. Thumbs up to Tim for helping a seagull that had fishing line stuck to it.

Tim is an amazing person and he made our kayaking experience very special. My wife and I were visiting this area and decided to take one of the kayaking tours on Airbnb. The decision was last minute and luckily we found a spot on his tour. He is very knowledgeable, experienced, friendly and went above and beyond for us. He even jumped into the water to catch some exquisite species of sea life and shared information about them with us. We saw many types of crabs, snails (true conch, lightning whelk etc.), sand dollar (alive and dead) and birds. Finally came the highlight of this trip - dolphins!!! It was truly an amazing & world class encounter with the dolphins and we spent around 45 mins with two of them swimming right around us and Tim was in no hurry to head back to the base. He spotted them from a mile away and took us right into the area where they were. While we were busy watching the beautiful dolphins swim around us Tim took our videos and photographs with them in the background. So don't go by the less number of reviews as he has recently signed up on Airbnb. He is the most experienced and amazing tour guide. THIS IS A MUST TO DO EXPERIENCE!!!

Tim and Eric made our kayaking tour a fun and memorable experience. They were so kind, accommodating, and genuinely passionate about marine life and the environment in which they live. One highlight of our tour was when a pod of 4 dolphins appeared and swam around our kayaks. My two children and I had SO much fun and will absolutely be booking with them again!

My family and I loved the Estes Bay kayaking experience we had with Tim and Erik. Tim and Erik are both extremely knowledgeable and experienced naturalists and kayakers. Tim's natural energy and passion for nature were contagious to all my family. They make sure that you maximize your experience during the day. They are also continuously monitoring the surroundings to make sure that their guests are safe at all times. Rest assured you will have an amazing time with Tim and Erik during your experience.

Very personable, relaxing, entertaining and knowledgeable! We had close encounters involving dolphins, manatees, birds and several small sea creatures you will never see in its natural habitat. We also saw 2 bald eagles in the distancing nesting! How cool is that? I highly recommend this excursion if you’re looking for a more intimate experience with someone that is highly knowledgeable and certified in many areas involving Florida’s natural habitat!!

Tim and Eric , both were super story teller from their experiences. They went above and beyond to show us the good times. The habitat. How they saved animals. We saw so many wild life on that one tour. Lovely day. Could not have been better. I think, Tim = Crocodile Dundee. My husband thinks Eric = Crocodile Dundee. They feed off each other. Good pair. Team players for sure. Thank YOU BOTH for an excellent experiences. We had a wonderful day.
