Considering I've never been kayaking, I want sure what to expect. That being said, this experience was simply amazing. Bioluminescent water, drifting along side dolphins and manitees, catching fish as they jump in the boats-what more could you ask for? Not to mention Josh (aka Red Beard), our guide, was awesome. Sure, Universal was fun, but this was the real... More

While on vacation with my family in New Symrna Beach Florida, we decided to go kayaking. We've gone before at a different location and loved it so we wanted to do it again. Our guide (his name was Bryan) was super funny and gave use a TON of cool information about the animals that live in the Merritt Island national... More

Amazing experience! Beautiful sunset followed by jumping fish and dolphins swimming within inches of our kayaks lighting up with bioluminesce. Brian and Cody were friendly and knowledgeable. We had 3 kids 6,10 and 16. Everyone had a blast! The directions emailed by a day away were easy to follow. Well worth the hour to drive from cocoa beach.

I found this company by chance after finding one of those, "must-see places in Florida" lists. This gem is tucked away from the bright lights of Orlando and its theme parks and attractions. Better to see the Bioluminescence that way :) The tour was absolutely breathtaking. I took my girlfriend for an anniversary trip, and we were blown away with... More

I was out Kayaking (fishing) the Haul Over canal with my dog Friday night and ran into these guys. They know what they are doing. Safe, friendly and knowledgeable. Am recommending to coworkers & friends. As for the Bio-Luminescence, It was spectacular that night. Made fishing easy. My dog was barking at fish and manatee as they swam by my... More

I had an amazing time on my tour! First, we headed to a boat ramp where there were manatees all over the place! They were curious and happy to investigate. For the rest of the tour, we paddled around the Indian river lagoon area and saw more wildlife (large Great Blue herons, a dolphin, a raccoon - all kinds of... More

This is a friendly, professional and well organized, locally based company. They have a good selection of kayaks to suit all experience levels and the guides are experienced, helpful and friendly. The destinations are fun. You will see a variety of wildlife, including signature Florida animals like manatee and alligator, porpoise, heron, egret and more. Remember to bring your sunscreen,...

We initially had some scheduling problems, but the woman who we spoke with on the phone was very helpful and really went out of her way to get us what we wanted. Our guide, Travis, was absolutely wonderful. He was friendly and very knowledgeable of the area. We got to see manatees and about a million birds! We had a... More

We had a GREAT private tour and would highly recommend this company for your kayak tour plans. Though I do not remember the name of our guide, she did a great job explaining all the things we were seeing and making our time enjoyable. Can't say enough good about this tour.

We did an early morning private kayak and saw squawks of the birds at the rookery, the dark eyes of a manatee and the swish of the tail of a gator. What a delightful morning!
