“Kayaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

We went kayaking there due to having a coupon. Well, this was the nicest day and place we have spent together in a long while. When getting there, being new to this adventure, we had thorough instructions on how to row the tandem kayak and what wildlife to look for. We only saw some fish jumping up out of the water and I did see a manatee. But all of this was very exciting! The water was very calm and it was just a beautiful day to be outside.

“A meal in nature.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2012

The last time we were there the food vendor had a decent variety. I had a fish sandwich, sandwich was good, but the atmosphere was what made the experience. They had the campfire going and chairs to sit by the fire. Then on the boat cruise(on Spruce Creek) made and enjoyable afternoon!

“Cracker Creek, a gem of Ol' Florida”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

One of the best kept secrets of genuine attractions in Florida. This is the "REAL" Florida. For only $10 one can get educated and enjoy the surroundings of Cracker Creek in a safe pontoon boat with an experienced guide for about an hour. We had a relaxing cruise until we sighted a family of alligators. Also saw people pass us by in canoes and turtles sunning themselves on logs. Meandering throughout the creek was such a nice experience. This was fun for the whole family.
