Virginia Key Outdoor Center Reviews
Took my boyfriend kayaking here for his birthday surprise and we had the best time. We saw a manatee and he came right up to us! The weather was beautiful and you’re basically on your own to discover ... more »
Wonderful tour on a dreary day. Fun, easy kayaking. Numerous Manatee sightings. Friendly staff, nice tour guide, and good equipment. more »
The people and the experience overall was amazing. Absolutely no complaints. We went biking and kayaking for an hour each, cost a fraction of other places. We saw so many animals also, including manatees in the inlet. Overall, very recommended decision in Miami if you want to escape the city life for a little while.
This place is awesome. I love going with a group of friends! The staff is also incredible and really helpful, especially Diana. Can’t wait to go back!
