    We had a private tour with Jennifer who was absolutely awesome!! She is super knowledgeable and fun to be around! She was kind enough to take pictures of all the close encounters we got to experience (Henry the alligator was literally an arms length away!) and we didn’t have to worry about accidentally dropping our phone in the river. Such a great experience for the kids and mom n dad a like. We would absolutely go again!

    Honeymoon Kayak Trip
    Rachel_L, Dec 2021
    We had made it a must to go kayaking in Florida while we were on our Honeymoon. It was one of the best parts of our trip. Our tour guide Candice was so helpful with every part of our experience, she gave us so many details on how to enjoy the kayak experience the best way possible. I would definitely suggest to give this a try, you will not be disappointed.
    Great Kayaking Experience

    Anthony_a, Nov 2021
    Tour guides were excellent, the trip vastly exceeded my expectations and would highly recommend. Almost a Jurassic park like feel but much safer.
    Rhonda_M, Aug 2021
    Jennifer and Josh where amazing! Great tour guides and they where so good with our lack of skills. Everyone was helpful and very knowledgeable about the area. I actually learn how to Kayak by the end of the trip!
