We were headed to the island today for a much needed couples day sans children. We didn't make plans, and we swung by Kayak Amelia on a whim. We were not disappointed. The owners are super nice and helpful. We had never kayaked before and it was easy in comparison to canoeing. It was just gorgeous out on the water.... More

My department at work took a Segway tour on Saturday and we had a great time. It was everyone's first time on a Segway and it was soon much fun. Our guides, Nick and Mike, were informative, patient (we had a few people who ran very late) and fun. I recommend this outing for anyone interested in a team building... More

Chris was our guide, a laugh a minute, humble about his love for the area, and very well-informed. The wind was strong, but that didn't spoil a great time.

We utilized their facility on Rt A1A near Ft George Island and had our own kayaks so only needed to pay the low $1 per boat launch fee. The lady at the desk was great. We were able to put in the water at the gravel ramp although low tide was about 1.5 hours away and the level was falling.... More

We had a great kayaking experience with our guide Chris. None of us had kayaked before. Chris gave instruction and lots of support. We would go again!

My wife and I have been on a Segway a couple of times but never off-road. This was a great experience going through the nature trails of Kingsley Plantation. After a few minutes of us getting used to the different type of Segway in a field, we were off on our journey. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area... More

Our guide Chris made the trip even more enjoyable with his knowledge. My 15 year old grandson was fascinated by what he saw and heard. As you know it's not easy to impress a teen. We will be back next month with more of our grandkids.

Let me tell you, as the person who signed you up, we can't wait to meet them! Your grandson was so polite and seeing him so enthusiastic about nature made my weekend! It is so hard nowadays to impress kids who can see all this stuff on National Geographic without ever leaving their couches. It's people like you getting them... More

Chris was an excellent naturalist kayak guide. He made it a very interesting tour for us. It was our "sister" trip and we had so much fun out there in the marshes! We would definitely do this again (and eat more yummy homemade cookies provided by Kayak Amelia)!
