Great experience with the kids Not to long not to short. We went here to get away from the hustle and bustle of the parks for a little while and it was great!
A fun time seeing animals and ancient Trees
Summer_H, Oct 2021
I highly recommend kayaking in the Cypress forest! The kayak trip itself is beautiful, and the guide is very informative. The place was easy to find using GPS and not far away from the theme parks. You do NOT have to be a world-class athlete to enjoy this 2-hour excursion. The trees also provide some relief from the sun. We saw lots of animals: birds, turtles, and a baby alligator. Also, I feel like I should add: we felt safe at all times. If you're looking for an alternative to Disney, or maybe something to do during one of your vacation days in Orlando, consider this!

Real out there in the wildlife kind of experience within driving distance and a city. It was fun and the Gide was informative. Be prepared for nature
