Chris is a great resource for identifying the local wildlife. He's a fun instructor too! I've been to Kayak Amelia many times some of those trips include yoga instruction by Deb Cunningham. I highly recommend practicing yoga in the best studio ever - on Amelia Island in the water/sand bar. It's so peaceful and serene. We also have fun trying... More

Thank you for taking time to review us! And we are so glad that you had a blast on the water with us. Between Deb's calming voice and enthusiastic attitude towards everything yoga and the water, and Cris' ever growing ability to spot any critter within reach, we feel so lucky! Our staff truly loves what they do and loves... More

Over the past ten years, I have been on many, many, many Kayak Amelia Tours. I have don't the sunset tours, the firefly tours, Stand Up Paddle Yoga, the whole gamut! I would say most of everything I know about the ecosystem of the area, I learned from Kayak Amelia. The staff is amazing, kind, and knowledgeable. Funny, I became... More

My wife and I took my sister and brother-n-law visiting from New Zealand out to see the best of what Jacksonville has to offer. The Kayak Amelia Segway Ecotour was great fun and very informative. Do yourselves a favor and take your visiting friends and family to experience this one of a kind tour of Jacksonville's best kept secret. The... More

Thanks Wayne! We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your trip through the maritime hammock. I hope the folks from New Zealand enjoyed what we call HUGE, banana spiders , which in their country can grow up to 16"! I am sure they had a good laugh about that... silly Floridians. We call Fort George Island a hidden gem... More

I took my five year old son on a 3 hour kayak trip with Kayak Ameilia. I was nervous about the trip, but we had a ball. Our guides were very friendly, interesting and made our trip truly enjoyable. I have been vacationing in Amelia Island for over 20 years and I am sorry I did not do this trip... More

Kayak Amelia has been a local kayaking company for many years, but I did not know they had expanded their adventures to segeway-ing. I had my college sorority sisters in for a long weekend, and needed a new and exciting and educational activity for us. The 2-hour tour of Ft. George Island was perfect. Nick and Lynn were our guides,... More

Thank you for taking time to review our tour. We are an Eco-Tourism business and our love for the planet doesn't always allow us to get close to the endangered species that migrate thru our waterways. While some companies net or bait the waters (which is terrible for the environment), we just have to hope to come across them. Sometimes... More

I took my 6 year old son on a 3 hour guided tour today and it was excellent! Our guide, Chris, clearly loves his job and was proudly sharing facts he recently learned at a master naturalist class. I've lived in NE Flordia my whole life and yet he was full of info I have never heard! He was quick... More

We are so glad you had a good time and took the time to give Cris a shout out! (It gives him bragging rights round the office!) We are true believers that we can all learn from one another. And I'm sure you taught your guide a little something too! Hopefully we'll see you all out here again. Paddle On!... More

What a wonderful way to spend half a day. Take a hat, sunscreen, water, and a picnic for the beach. Easy paddling in tranquil and beautiful surroundings. Very friendly and expert staff with good advice. Equipment was modern and easy to use. Overall a top recommendation for an active day on Amelia. We went out on our own as we... More

Overall, a great experience with Kayak Amelia. The staff is super friendly, the kayaks are in great condition, and the river is clean with ample places to pull off and enjoy the surrounding environment. It's not cheap - around $42 a pop after taxes and such - but you do get 4 hours out on the water and the service... More
