The prior very enthusiastic reviews are based on a guide who is no longer with the company. The new guide, although very nice, has no prior experience as a guide. That was reflected in a lack of knowledge of the Estero bay aquatic life and ecosystem. We kayaked without discussing any of what we were seeing, in stark contrast to... More

Twenty-two of us took a kayaking trip with Adventures Kayaking and it was a great experience! Tom and Brent were our guides and they did an excellent job. Very knowledgeable and helpful. We first headed to the bay where we were surrounded by manatees. They came within feet of our kayaks. It was incredible! Then to the mangroves. Great Trip.... More

Would like to thank Adventures Kayaking for delivering a kayak to us while visiting Grandma in Cape Coral. We wanted a kayak to explore on the canals while on vacation and we found that Adventures Kayaking delivered. It was delivered the day I called and Sterling showed us how to get in and out of the kayak during low and... More

Sterling did a fantastic job of leading us through "mangrove tunnels" and out into Estero Bay. The wild life was plentiful and Sterling was informative and entertaining in teaching us about the ecosystem of the bay and mangroves while we enjoyed a relaxing "adventure" on the water.

Six of us took a kayaking tour on Bonita Bay today- our tour guide, Sterling, was knowledgeable and interesting about the wildlife in the area- we were fortunate to have some tour guides-in-training along: Ryan x 2, Tom and one other- all came from different viewpoints regarding the area from a wildlife biologist to an Everglades extreme adventurist- it sure...

My wife and I spent the morning kayaking and learning of the life and ecosystem of Northwest Florida's Estero Bay. We were greeted and equipped by Adventure Kayaking's guides Stirling and Tom and spent some three hours leisurely paddling the bay in search of critters. Stirling was very knowledgeable about the bay's ecosystem and about the marine and plant life... More

I know most people gave this outfit very high reviews but unfortunately we did not have a great experience. We booked during the height of the tourist season so maybe that is why. We initially spoke to the owner of the company who was great and he explained the type of tour that would be suitable for myself and two... More

I can only say Sterling was not professional and has been replaced as full time guide.. We have added four new guides to our staff.. I am sorry that it did not meet your expectations and I agree with you ! Glenn Novotny Owner More

My mother and I decided to take the 3 hour kayaking tour with Adventures Kayaking based solely on trip advisor reviews. After going on the kayaking tour in Estero Bay we had mixed feelings. First the good: We learned a great deal about the Estero Bay aquatic eco-system. We had an amazing experience with dolphins that were feeding in their... More

We were lucky enough to have a guided kayak tour of Estero Bay with Sterling, a young man who really loves what he does. He settled us into the most comfortable and maneuverable kayaks for our 3 hours paddle through Estero Bay. We learned about the history of the area, the Indian tribes who lived there, the wetlands ecology and... More
