The whole operation and staff were not friendly or helpful an extremely slow. Would recommend any other business there other than them.

It was our first time on the rainbow river and selected AWA because they were right on the main road and the sign said "Kayak rental $20 for the day." I had a group of 8 people and went inside to inquire. The owner said he could shuttle us all now if we hurried. My wife inquired about our 10... More

We visited this spot on our weekend getaway. Since we traveled from GA we were not sure what to expect. The lady in the office was extremely helpful. However the lady who radios in with the people on the buses and people who help those into the river was nothing but rude. One bad apple can spoil the bunch. She... More

My 10 y.o. grandson and I rented a tandem kayak from AWA this morning. I called a few days earlier and reserved a spot. When we arrived I was surprised to see all the paperwork ready to be signed. Nice treat not to be filling out forms in the early morning. Had to wait a while for the kayak shuttle... More

We rented kayaks and paid for the shuttle to KP Hole. We paddled upstream and then snorkeled back to the put-in, and then paddled the rest of the way, and felt that it was about an hour too long for us. We spent about 5 hours on the water. The wildlife was awesome, but there were too many people tubing,... More

We rented 4 single-person kayaks for me, my wife, and my 2 teen daughters. The owner and staff were friendly and helpful. I would recommend a similar trip versus the tubing for a couple of reasons: 1) you cannot paddle upriver to get to the clearest waters near the state park and 2) the lowest third of the trip is...

We rented a kayak from Aquatic Wilderness Adventures and used their shuttle service to go down the Rainbow River on our first day in Dunnellon and the young man working was very polite and helpful. We weren't planning on taking the shuttle, because we didn't know about it prior to going, and I felt bad that I didn't have any... More

The owners are VERY hands-on. Right there to help make your day. Also, they are located at the END of the run, with the shuttle first. So when you get off the river, you are right at your car and ready to change and go. No waiting for the shuttle to get back to your car and dry clothes. Rent... More

We've been renting kayaks from Aquatic Wilderness Adventures since we moved to Dunnellon in 2010. The owners have always taken good care of us and our guests, and instructing us newbies on how to use the kayaks, and the rules and regulation on the Rainbow River. The rate for all day fun on the River is the best in town,... More

We had a great day tubing down the Rainbow River with Aqua Wilderness Adventures! The owners were very friendly and accommodating. We didn't have to wait long for a shuttle to arrive and transport our party to the KP Hole - Once we finished the run, and landed back at AWA, the owner met us at the ramp and ensured... More
