Last Saturday 10/11 we joined a great group of kayakers to paddle over to Kingsley Plantation. Our guides Chris and Nick were great. Chris knew the sea and animal life and Nick filled us in with deep knowledge of the area. The plantation is another story to be reviewed. There were adults and a couple of kids. It was an... More

My wife and I took the Segway tour, and had a fantastic time. Riding a Segway was a lot of fun. Donna was an excellent guide. We saw gopher turtles and banana spiders and of course lots of birds. We learned a lot about the area and just had a wonderful time exploring.

My husband and I are were extremely satisfied with our kayak trip today. Cris (our guide) awesome, knowledgeable, funny and patient. We could have easily stayed in bed this morning but we said let's just do go and we were smiling ear to ear all day glad we decided to go. You will see beautiful nature, have complete peaceful moments... More

We took the three hour kayak ecotour. Jax friends told us of this great outfit while we were at Amelia Island for a week. KA takes care of everything for you except the paddling itself. Kayak and safety instructions precede launching on an easy one way paddle WITH the flow of the incoming tide. HINT: for couples with one of... More

81 going on 31! You guys were an amazing group and it only makes our jobs easier. And with an office like ours, it's hard to not impress! Donna has been with us for almost a year now and has proven to be luxury we didn't know we were missing. Now that's she's here, we're never letting her go! Thank... More

This class was a blast! I'm over 60 and was a little nervous on how I would do on a paddleboard - even though it has been on my Bucket LIst for years. After 10 minutes of instruction on the ground, we headed out to start paddling around on the water. Always felt safe & Deb's yoga instructions (all with... More

This review makes our hearts smile! There is nothing better than to hear it was on your bucket list and you checked it off with us! Now you're ready for a 2 hour eco tour thru the marsh that covers a little more distance. We also do a moonlight meditation paddle once a month on the full moon/high tide which... More

We were so sad that the weather was not in our favor but still enjoyed meeting Jody and want to thank her for all of her tips and suggestions for the rest of our weekend. We will be back one day to rent Kayaks from her! Great spot!

What a fun summer camp for kids. My 9 year old had never kayaked and learned how to directional paddle and kayaked 3 miles by himself on one of their many trips (they stop, swim, have lunch, and learn along the way). A top-notch organization!

We are so glad your son had a blast and it sounds like he was quite the paddler! We are always so amazed to watch the transformation the young mind and bodies can achieve! In today's day and age it can be so difficult to get the young people involved in good ole fashioned playtime. Dawn and Donna are both... More
