    So much fun. Barney, our guide told us a lot of history of the waterway and the ecosystem around it. If you just want usage of a kayak, without the guide, that is possible also. We like the guides for this because they know so many interesting things about the area and that is what brings to life the tour.

    Zoe was AWESOME! Very personable and easy to talk to. Even my non-adventurous husband had a good time. Highly recommend this company and especially Zoe.
    Had a fun time

    It was relaxing and the guide was nice. They supplied water and a snack. The morning was the perfect time since it gets hot in the afternoon this time of year.
    Eco tour very informative and fun.

    GREAT and easy afternoon outing on a sunny Florida day.
    Denise_S, Mar 2022
    A kayak outing on a clear, sunny, warm day is perfect for an afternoon outing. I recommend water shoes, rather than trainers. Bring a hat and sunscreen and a waterproof bag for your phone/camera. They give you a water bottle and a snack at the end (even a Gluten-Free one!) We saw an alligator and some turtles, and the trees and water were gorgeous. The others on our tour were friendly and that makes a difference. Shout out to our guide, James, for being helpful and experienced and letting us paddle a bit on our own.
    Birthday to remember!

    Our tour guide Barney tugging our canoe over a fallen tree log in knee high muck! Lots of laughs and great memories for all!

    Thank you for joining us, and we are so glad you had a great birthday! Barney is a fantastic guide and lots of fun. Hope to see you again soon!
    Serene out and back trip
    Jodie_C, Jul 2021
    My daughter and I learned some things on our tour—like how tannic acid affects the color of the water snd that alligators like the small one we saw on the trip are non-aggressive. It was a fun and informative out-and-back river trip.

    Thank you for choosing us to paddle with! I am glad you had fun and learned new information about our ecosystem! I am sorry we only earned a 3-star review from your experience and would love if you would contact us and let us know how we could improve your experience. Thank you again!
    Definitely recommend!
    Gabriella_T, Jun 2021
    Had a great time kayaking! It was a beautiful trip. Not too challenging but did feel like a little bit of a workout. Definitely need to put on sunscreen beforehand since it’s mostly in the sun. Also, your legs will get wet so keep that in mind when getting dressed!

    Thank you for choosing us to paddle with! I am so glad you enjoyed your trip!
    New Exciting Adventures!!!
    Dorothy_W, Jul 2020
    My daughters and I decided to do something new and exciting for one of their birthdays. So as first time kayakers, we were very nervous. The guides were very helpful and patient with us as we learned very quickly not to lean to far to one side. Lol . As soon as we were focused and ventured on, we saw how beautiful, peaceful, and relaxing it was. We had a wonderful time. Thanks again to our guides, very friendly, very skilled, and most of all very patient! We can’t wait to go again!!!
    Response from Host, Aug 2020
    Thank you Dorothy, y'all come back and paddle with us again soon! :)
