Rainbow River was the only outfit still finding a way to get people on the river when every other outfit in town was sold out. When we got sidelined by lightning - they went out of their way to make sure everyone was safe and dropped off where needed. Very much appreciate the way these folks do business.

This was the 2nd annual kayak trip with several tennis friends from Citrus County. We took a rare day off from tennis & enjoyed a scenic, peaceful experience in our kayaks, provided by Kayak Adventures in Dunnellon. I reserved 8 kayaks one week in advance with the plan to meet at their loading location by 10am & be on the... More

Russ was so accommodating, helping our teenage son try a variety of kayaks before choosing just the right one. He explained the float perfectly, and even how much time it'd take us to paddle up to Rainbow Springs headwaters. The river itself is pristine, very calm, no white water or anything like that, just a happy float through beautiful trees... More

Perfect location for a kayak trip up the Rainbow River. Plenty of tubes and kayaks. Good prices too! $10 less than another local kayak rental place which isn't even on the river!

Joel was very helpful and told us what to expect. We arrived and Joel and his crew were waiting for us. They took us right to the "put in" and off we went. Gave... More

The entire experience was just fantastic. The employees were just wonderful with our group. I loved that they picked us up and brought us back to our cars. They worked with our group and the price was right. The Rainbow River was just beautiful. Thank you again.

We had such a great experience using this company. The staff was excellent and bent over backwards to do everything for our group of 8. We rented (4) 2person kayaks and had them drop us at the Rainbow River State Park. (Be Aware if you do that, you have to haul the VERY HEAVY (60 -80 lbs) Kayaks,down the stairs,... More
