“Highlight of the trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

This was a wonderful outing. I took my partner, sister and two nephews. The younger nephew shared my kayak - all boats were modern, the equipment worked well, conditions were excellent. We saw a dophin pod three times, a pelican rookery, and numberous other birds. The guides were thoughtful and pleasant.

Would definitely recommend this to a friend.

“Grwat experience of paddling the everglades.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

We are not a sporty family and this was physically challenging but on the other hand it was great fun and so different from what we usually do. Be warned you do get very wet. It would have been nice to fidn a beach to moor on and eat lunch but the salesman was not helpful on that matter.

Glad you enjoyed your experience on the water. Depending on where and when you paddle the experience can be easy or strenuous. The kayaks you choose can also depend on how dry or wet you stay so keep that in mind. Sorry you did not get a chance to get out on an island but there are many of them within a 30 minute paddle from the fish house. Cannon Island, Sea Oat Island and Keewaydin on the Gulf are all great places to paddle and get out on the beach. Hope you get a chance to come back some time and hit the beach!

“A variety of fun on the water!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Did the Rookery Bay tour in March with experienced kayakers including first-timers and young teen and it was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Also did the Isle of Capri tour recently with in a small group of novice kayakers. In a mixed group of experienced kayakers the tours have had something for everyone. The guides are a pleasure and flexible. Also did the Stand Up Paddleboard lesson with Mango and managed very well with all his tips. No fears renting the boards alone now!

“Easy day out on the water”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Just get there and say "I want to go kayaking" These guys are super relaxed and get you out on the water steps from where you park. They will tell you where to go for an easy paddle depending on wind, currents, etc. where a more challenging paddle may take you to more adventurous places, and when you get back, there is a great little restaurant on the beach, and I mean the sand, where a cold one and lunch await you!

Not expensive and kayaks are in decent shape. Super friendly folks at the rental and the restaurant. Don't want to drive salty? Ask the guys about the hose in the back. Not glamorous, but part of the adventure.

I've been back a few times with wife, friends, their wives, and will be back.

“Great experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

I generally enjoy kayaking. But this is an interesting experience around the canal of Naples. Easy water for novices and amazing architecture of the homes on the canal. A very different way to se LA.
