About Us

Our Tours Are Different

Fin Expeditions is a local, family-owned operation. We are very proud to be rated number one on TripAdvisor. We’d say this comes from hard work but it is much more than that. We strive to treat every guest like family. From the moment you show up through our farewell we want you to feel comfortable. We know what it’s like to travel and always do what we can to take some of that load off our guests. Just show up and let us take care of the rest.

Our tours are run by friendly guides who know the area inside and out. Let them take you off the beaten path into places you wouldn’t have discovered on your own…to places where there are no unnatural noises. Just the sound of nature. We are a quiet expedition (most of the time).

Building Memories

Unlike other kayak tour companies, we limit our groups to a maximum of 12 guests. Our average group size is 6 people. We are firm believers that smaller groups deliver a more personal experience. We limit group sizes to ensure we can give you more personal attention. Just imagine what happens to a group of animals when a large kayak group paddles into their habitat. Large groups require the guide to speak very loudly to communicate. We provide more personal discussions regarding the things we see.

IAN GIBBS

Ian grew up kayaking and fishing in the lakes and rivers in Wisconsin. He then chased his dream of moving by the beach to surf and enjoy the luxury of having wonderful kayaking weather year round. 

RAUL MARTINEZ
I was born in New Jersey after my parents immigrated from Cuba in the 60s to flee the Castro regime. My dad was an active-duty Marine for 22 years, so we moved a lot from state to state and base to base. Even lived in Hawaii for 3 years. Once he retired, we all moved to South Florida where most of our extended family already lived.
Met and married my sweetheart there and I now have two beautiful children. To escape the crazy South Florida city life, we decided to move to Merritt Island about 5 years ago where we are now surrounded by awesome people and endless water.
I love nature, exercise, and meeting new people from all over the world as a tour guide for Fin Expeditions.
