Really enjoyed paddling around the manatees with Matt. He was extremely knowledgeable and made the adventure a real learning experience. Would definitely go back.

We booked the St. Martin's Marsh tour with Matt as our guide. To begin with, the equipment was top notch and in excellent condition. Matt gave us a quick refresher course on kayaking and a summary of what we might experience on the tour. He is very open to questions and extremely knowledgeable. The tour was even better than we...

My husband and I were in Homosassa in February of 2014 and were eager to view some manatees up close and personal. It was important to us that we found a company that respected the manatees and did not invade their space. Aardvark's Florida Kayak Co, fit the bill. Unfortunately Aardvark's was not able to accommodate our date, but they... More

We booked a private kayak trip (5 of us total) on the Chassahowitzka River. What a beautiful spot! We saw lots of wildlife - a variety of birds, otters, manatee - and hardly any humans! Our guide was very knowledgable and helpful with the kayaks. Their equipment is top notch - not the same as your $20 hr boats. I... More

We did not do a tour with Aardvark but rented two boats for another organized paddle. The boats were very nice Eddyline sea kayaks with PFDs and paddles. Pick up and delivery were smooth. Be aware if you rent kayaks that other safety gear, such as paddle floats, pumps, spray skirts are not provided. You should assess your need for... More

This local thoroughly enjoyed her kayak rental from Aardvark. Susan, the owner, was extremely thorough and helpful in preparing me for my adventure, from selecting the perfect kayak to adjusting my foot pedals "just right" and providing me with a map and guide to the area. I highly recommend this professional company, in the heart of downtown Crystal River.

We signed up for a private (just the 2 of us) tour with Matt, the co-owner. He is a marine biologist and spent over 20 years doing research work and even necropsies on manatees. His wife, Sue (I think) gave us a very informative lecture before we set off. They are very diligent about making their customers aware of the... More

Our experience with Aardvark's was outstanding - start to finish. Susan helped us select a tour that was right for our family, gave us suggestions for other things to do/see in the area, made sure we brought the right gear (polarized sunglasses!, hats, etc.). Matt was fantastic - extremely knowledgeable about the geology and ecology of area. We saw lots... More
