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!

Although we have lived in Florida for many years, this was our first trip down Rainbow River. Called Rainbow River Kayak Adventures and booked out trip. 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.

My family loves to kayak and this experience was top notch. The transfers were quick, the equipment was excellent, and the river was spectacular. We are definitely going back and will surely use Rainbow River Kayak Adventures. Highly recommended!
