Rented a tandem kayak for our stay on the river. The staff was friendly and helpful. On the last day of the trip we paddled down the river to return the kayak and they drove us back to the cabin. We have rented paddle boards from them on several occasions and the service is always great. The drivers are very... More

These guys are great! Super friendly and helpful. They make sure you know what to look for so you get the most out of your day on the river. We rented a place on the Rainbow River so we were able to start our trip about 10 am head upstream from the KP hole to enjoy more of the river... More

This "mom and pop" outfit was just perfect! The equipment was in excellant shape, any vessel you wanted to travel down the river was readily available and offered. Our reservation was for 10am, however, our group hustled up that morning and got there an hour early. Not a problem for this flexible outfitter! Also be aware that an advanced reservation... More

Paddleboarded up to Spring head and back to where we started the day, 7.5 mile trip and loved every minute. Staff was very helpful and friendly. We will either be buying our own Paddleboards now or... More

The water was cold and the sun was hot...but we had a blast! They drove us about 2-3 miles up stream and we took their advice and went further upstream for some beautiful scenery. Tons of turtles and birds. The water is so clear that you can see about 30' to the bottom. CLEAR! And the fish were huge. Not... More

My wife and I scheduled a trip down the Rainbow River and planned on taking our grandsons with us. However, mother nature had other ideas on our date. So, the only thing to do was come back the next day. Boy, what difference a day makes in Florida! Beautiful skies, light breeze and the water was cool. The boys loved... More
