What you'll do

We will take you on an unforgettable adventure to explore the marvels of South Florida’s unique marine ecosystem. First, we visit Manatee Lagoon in our Clear Kayaks where our Manatee Master guide will take you on a private tour to see up-close (depends on the weather) these fascinating creatures and share with you little-known facts about this incredible animal.
From there....we will experience all the excitement that Peanut Island has to offer. From snorkeling to beaches, and even nature trails to explore! All located on this 79-acre island that is only accessible by boat. Fun-loving seafarers will love an afternoon of Jimmy Buffett and a picnic lunch while you party on a huge sandbar on the north end of the island. This is truly an escape to 'Paradise!'.
Then we will troll over to nearby 'Blue Heron Reef' chosen as the "Best Dive site in the World" by Sport Diver magazine. There you can snorkel Blue Heron Reef where you will encounter sea creatures that are rarely seen anywhere else in the world. Seahorses and pipefish, sea robins, flying gurnards, batfish, frogfish, stargazers, and octopus are all there to see.

We had a wonderful time. Our 13 & 14 year olds loved the boat ride and snorkeling. The current was too strong for the kayaks so we went out on their boat which I think was a better experience since it was such a hot day. We were unable to stop for lunch because of the bugs so when we got back to the marina Jane offered to let us use the kayaks and gave us our lunch so we could eat on her air conditioned boat or sit in the park. We still had a full day out on the boat and didn’t get back till 2:00. Jane was wonderful to talk to, she had so much knowledge about Palm beach. Highly recommend any excursion with Mike & Jane!

Micheal & Jane were great! The current was too strong to kayak but they offered to take us out on their boat instead. We went snorkeling at peanut island and had lunch in a great spot. We had 7 people and they were fantastic about accommodating us. Snorkeling at peanut island was amazing!

It was easy to find the tour, and even though the wind was high the day we booked Capts Mike, Jane and Errol had an alternate plan for us! Since the wind was whipping, they got us out on a tour of the inland waterway on the Hello Paradise and we motored around viewing yachts and mansions, (Jane is a walking “Enquirer”), snorkeling on Peanut Island in the current and in the still Lagoon, then lunching up on Minion Isl. (Publix subs- yum!) One of our party got in the glass boats after we got back to the marina and went out with Jonathan, the capt’s nephew. Beverages of all types were provided, and we forgot our towels so they lent us one. The group leaders were generous with their time, knowledge and equipment! We had a GREAT day, and would definitely do it again. In fact, next year when we come down we’d go on the night tour for sure! By then the night spot lights and motors will be mounted on the glass boats. FUN!!! 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
