    We loved our kayaking tour, Allie was so knowledgeable about the ecology of the area - we learned a lot. A relaxing experience, not physically challenging, a very enjoyable day in nature.

    Very relaxing kayak trip. We lucked up and were the only ones on the tour (Monday morning) so we got the "private tour". The creek we paddled was very calm and Will (tour guide) did a great job! Will definitely do again if we return to Amelia Island.
    Great tour

    Great trip — saw alligator and turtles. Guide Catherine was very knowledgeable. Lofton was quite busy with other groups.
    Erin_M, Jun 2020
    Great time. Saw turtles and an alligator. Kind of crowded on the creek with several other groups at same time. Would suggest a starting a sunrise kayak trip near the beach!
    Response from Host, Jan 2021
    We appreciate you kayaking Lofton Creek with us! You are right, it can get crowded out there from time to time and that is the reason we are the first to launch at 9 am...Sometimes, people have the same great idea to go kayaking. We have 5 other tours that launch at different locations and all customized to ride current. Let's give one a try next time:) If you want to kayak Lofton Creek again, we can do that too. We can even customize an earlier meet time. Thank you for touring with us and for taking time to leave a nice review. Until next time. -Catherine
