We found the staff very friendly and informative along the whole tour. The instructions for using the Segway were easy to follow. The instructors were very hands on and gave each person personal attention. Overall the whole trip was great!

It was a fun and different way to learn about the history and natural environment of Ft. George Island. The tour guide was great. It is a bit pricey, though.

Nick and Chris made our introduction to kayaking both a safe and enjoyable experience. We loved every minute of the four-mile and three-hour kayaking trip. Even though we are in our late 50s and early 60s we found the trip moderately challenging. We highly recommend the experience to families and people of all ages. We look forward to doing it... More

We've wanted to try a kayak trip for ages and decided to do an Eco Tour. We arrived about 20 minutes early for our group tour on Little Talbot Island and took a ride a bit further south to unload the kayaks. Our two guides Chris and Nick (??) gave us a safety demo and a basic lesson in paddling.... More

We finally made it out kayaking on Amelia Islands after many years vacationing on the island. It was terrific and pleased we did the guided tour for the first time. Our guides were terrific and they were extremely knowledgeable about the wildlife and history of the area. The sightings of birds were plentiful and after a chilly cloudy start it... More

After being a little nervous to start, Nick and Chris made us feel comfortable and safe. Great instruction and fun, educational little trip through Ft George. Didn't want to stop at the end! Highly recommend.

Our guide was very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna at Fort George as well as the history of the area. The Segways are a fun way to see the island and the complimentary chocolate chip cookies were delicious!

The day was beautiful, the current in our favor and the group small. Chris is a knowledgeable and skillful guide who kept an eye on us and gave clear guidance as needed. Because the group was small and we made good time, we took a couple of brief detours into interesting areas for good paddling and wild life encounters. We... More

Renting a kayak and getting out on the water couldn't have been simpler. We took a double and a single and went with the current each way. Clear setup and guidance at the start. Good to get there early. Great light for photography and plenty of birdlife. Nice to see a bald eagle overhead, or wash along the banks with... More

Jules R, Guest Relations Manager at Kayak Amelia, responded to this review

Seeing as you are from Cape Town, your satisfaction of our Florida wildlife is totally awesome! The bald eagles have really been pulling out all the stops lately and we are so glad you got to experience them. Doing the "low tide turnaround" is really the simplest way to do a KA rental. And it's always nice to throw a... More
