Your Guides to Adventure.

  Mitch Hollingsworth   Mitch travelled to the Florida Keys in 1996, and much like many others before him, he never left. Leaving his native Chicagoland behind, Mitch spent the next 20 years making art, paddling countless miles, and living that beautiful Key West lifestyle. Over the years, and after many hours on the water, the idea to bring people out into this amazing environment was hatched while camping in a clump of mangrove trees one night.. Always looking for adventure on sea or land, and a passion to create images in remote places, led to the discovery of where his tours go. Follow an artist, backcountry photographer and outdoor adventurist on a kayaking safari that you won't soon forget.

  Christopher Aiello   A year after college, Christopher moved to Key West for six months to avoid the bitterness of the New England winter of 91/92.  Upon realizing that a life without snow was possible, he made the decision to make his short time on the island a permanent one. Over the years, he has spent most of his time as a photographer, bartender, and adventurer.   When not on the water during high kayak season, Christopher tends to travel the world and drink in everything life has to offer. "Life is a collection of experiences. Some safe, some dangerous and all worth experiencing."

This is the ocean, and things do sink. It is your responsibility to watch your belongings and prevent them from going overboard. Search and rescue of gear that doesn't float, rarely goes well. Keep this in mind as you pack your gear.
