we were beginners in the kayak but this tour was easy to follow and thanks to Matt's patience it was a wonderful experience. We could benefit from his knowledge on all the local animals. Thanks to his guiding we saw dolphins and manatees very close to our kayak. I would highly recommend this tour and will surely be back to... More

April 19, 2015 we booked our second private kayak trip. Matt, our guide was EXCELLENT. Very helpful on instructions and extremely knowledgable on the area. We picked the backcountry/Oz paddle. It was the perfect fit for us. The water so clear you can see the bottom and then our BIG surprise. A small pod of Dolphins that came up next... More

Easy reservation and quick delivery. We had all day to explore Crystal River and didn't feel rushed. Absolutely the best equipment available with great service.

We booked a St Martin's Marsh Back Country 3 hour private tour and it proved to be one of the highlights of our family holiday to Florida. Matt was our relaxed and very knowledgeable guide and it wasn't a problem that between us we had either no or very limited previous kayaking experience. It was a straightforward two hour drive...

We kayak often on the east coast of Florida and were looking for a different experience. Found Aardvark's Florida Kayak on the web and booked a tour with them as part of our anniversary getaway. Since the other bookings cancelled, we have a private tour with Matt at no additional charge. The tour we took on the Chassahowitzka river was... More

I highly recommend Aardvarks. We had several kayaks delivered to our rental house and they arrived on time and in good working order. Sue and her staff were very knowledgeable and gave great advice on where to go to see the manatees and springs. We will definitely use them again next year!

This was our second trip with Matt and it was as good as the first. He's very knowledgeable about the area which makes the trip even better. We will definitely book again next year.

Matt and his staff were very helpful with setting this trip up. Plan A did not work out due to an off shore wind that created low tidal water. Matt suggested going with Plan B which went off without a hitch. I plan on using Aardkvark Kayak for future trips! JIM
