Lauren is ecstatic to be expanding Blue Moon Outdoor Adventures from Fort Lauderdale to Key West as Blue Moon Kayak Key West. She started kayaking with her grandmother in South Carolina over 20 years ago to learn how to white water and tour through the clam beds of the Eastern Coasts. Her first job was selling high end kayaks in Alexandria, Virginia with Atlantic Kayak and quickly became an instructor and lead guide there as well. Lauren moved to South Florida in 2010 to pursue her Master’s in Sports Administration and Education at the University of Miami. She also began working for Blue Moon Outdoor Center out of North Miami. In 2019 she bought out the previous owner and now runs the Fort Lauderdale location. With over 16 years of kayak instruction and tour guiding she will share her passion with you through the waters of Key West and more. While giving tours she is also writing a blog on being a business owner in the eco-tourism industry and working to get her Captain’s License to take guests on private charters to islands and reefs to snorkel and paddle around; so stay tuned!
