Our group of 6 "wilderness women" increased our appreciation of Florida's abundant birds, mammals and aquatic treasures today. Our naturalist guide, Matt, was informative regarding botanical & bird/animal life throughout our tour. Safety, fun and respectful exploration was the experience we enjoyed.

Definitely recommend this tour! It was worth the drive out of Orlando. Matt and Sue were great and it was an all around great experience.

We booked Aardvark's because of the fact they care about the animals. Not like the snorkel tours, they like the animals for the money. It is heartbreaking to see these gentle animals being ambushed by snorkelers. I'm very glad we choose this company!! Matt and his wife are super kind and passionate about the manatees. And it is horrible what... More

My husband and I have taken private tours with Matt a number of times, and we are never disappointed. Matt and Sue have a great knowledge of the history and the wildlife in the area, and they plan your trip according to your preferences for wildlife and habitat geared toward your kayaking ability. We paddled out of Ozello, surrounded by... More

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
