My son and I took the 3 hour tour with Ben. We had an awesome time and enjoyed Ben's knowledge of the area and marine life. We would definitely recommend this to others. We was three manatees and a dolphin during our trip.

We went with Ed as a guide kayaking on Shem Creek and would recommend this to everyone!! Ed was knowledgable about the sea life and the history of the region. He took us at a good pace around the creek and to the pelican island--we saw loads of birds, fish and dolphins.

We booked this trip several months ago from the UK. The swamp was beautiful and the canoeing was excellent. We saw plenty of wildlife including alligators, a snakea and 2 barred owls and got some great camera shots. The guide was very friendly and helpful and very knowledgeable about the nature. All in all a brilliant trip which exceeded our... More

... of being Pocahontas! In my excitement to go kayaking, my husband and I actually arrived to the spot a week earlier than what our reservation was for. I also didn't really read the instructions apparently, because we showed up at the wrong place. However, when I called the office, they were quick to get a hold of our guide,... More

We took our 12 year old niece on a 2 hour kayak tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our guide Craig was very engaging and taught us more about the marsh environment than we could imagine (we knew 10 minutes into the trip that he had to be a high school teacher). The trip is suitable for most ages and the... More

We had a really great time on Wamba Creek - the tour was relaxing and beautiful. It was also highly educational as our guide was a marine biologist. Highly recommended!

The weather was perfect. The water was perfect. The nature was perfect. Jay, my guide was a blend of rockstar historian, naturalist/educator, kayak instructor, buddy and comedian. He kept his eye on the water, my safety and whether I was OK, while all the while keeping our small group moving forward. It was a delightful way to spend a Saturday... More

We did a 3 hour kayak tour with Will and it was perfect. Will was very kind and super informative. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with him and the beautiful environment. We did this with a 7 year old without any difficulty. The folks in the office were also friendly and helpful. This is a great outfit.
