Our group of five women (four who had never kayaked!) has a fabulous 3 hour kayaking adventure with Kayak Amelia today. Our guides, Chris and Buddy were fantastic--very knowledgeable in teaching us the basics of kayaking and then providing lots of interesting information during the beginner ecotour. Chris, in particular, loves to talk and is VERY entertaining!! We learned lots... More

Our guides were great. They pointing out birds, fish, stingrays. We rested for 30 minutes on the beach to allow for swimming and standup paddle board lessions! The fish and other water creatures were fascinating and we were allowed to hold them and do some exploring. The guides were knowledgeable and a lot of fun. AND the COOKIES were really... More

I expected this trip to be 70 percent "cool! Segway!" and 30 percent sights of interest. It was probably 80 percent cool and interesting sights - and 20 percent cool Segway fun. Nick, our guide, was exceptional. His focus on safety and comfort of the riders in our group was paramount. He wouldn't start the tour until everyone understood the... More

Our family went back in June and we had the best time! We were able to paddle right up to some dolphins- it was magical! The guides were very down to earth and I loved the Facebook album that they uploaded with our pictures (candid and all)!

The folks at Kayak Amelia were awesome! Imagine for a moment a family showing up with the 72 year old grandma, and three families of children and grandchildren totaling 16 people!! Our guides didn't even flinch, and were so knowledgeable about what we were seeing, and kept all our people entertained the whole trip! We did the Bar Hopping tour,... More

We had a great outing on the Segway tour. It was well worth the money. Nick was our guide and he did a great job describing the nature and history of the island. This was our first time on Segways. It is a easy to learn and fun to ride.

My wife and I used separate kayaks and she was worried about keeping up in the kayak by herself but with the paddling instruction and pace of the tour, we both had a great time. Fun and informative guide. We did the 9-12 tour and the birds were very active. Pay attention to the address on your confirmation email. You... More

Great Bar Hopping tour with Chris, Buddy and Brandt - they were helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. My girls and I really enjoyed the trip and hope to return. The girls found great shells - that was the goal so we were happy. The paddle is very easy - mostly with the tide. It is fine for kids 10 and up... More

Thank you for leaving this nice review and for the compliments. Anyone who owns their own kayak can tell you, that the loading and unloading is always the hardest part. The tour is great way to not have to do any heavy lifting and a great chance to put a smaller 1st time kayaker in their own boat! It sounds... More
