Another shorter and less expensive motor / paddle option is our 2-1/2 hour $325 (up to 3 paddlers) mangrove cave crawl; motor to a mangrove island, then find your inner monkey and swing from mangrove limb to limb as we discover the inner reaches of No Name Key.

If you want to add a little fishing to your tour, Captain Brian will take you inshore by the bridges or to a backcountry hole. Rods, bait and tackle are provided.
