“Kayak/Fossil hunting trip on the Peace River”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

My friend & I booked this trip with Mac. We had never been kayaking before. It was great fun, we found lots of fossils, including sharks teeth, petrified bones, alligator teeth and other great treasures. The weather was perfect & the water was very refreshing. Mac was a wonderful guide & knew a lot about the fossils that we were looking for and right where to look to find them. He took the time to explain every aspect of the trip as well as took a genuine interest in his group members. I would recommend this trip for family or friends for a relaxing day on the water.

“Sublime”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

My husband, daughter, and I had a wonderful adventure in a sublime setting on Crystal River with Suzanne and Mac and the great group of paddlers we met that day.
Snorkeling in Seven Sisters Spring was a highlight as was spotting some manatees as they came up for air. We also saw turtles, egrets, herons, and cormorants, among other fauna. The surroundings were beautiful. It was a peak experience for me. Mac and Suzanne are very knowledgeable and very entertaining. They were a big part of what made the trip enjoyable. Highly recommend. Would like to return to participate in the other adventures they offer.

“Kayaking down the mighty Chass.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

The trip was made so great by our great leader. Florida Eco-adventures arrives on time, with great equipment and a fantastic attitude. We had a great time on the river and really enjoyed the info and antidotes that Mac provided. We felt like we had been friends for years. This company is great and we are planning our next adventure with lots of friends. Thanks again Mac for a super day!

“Great day on Crystal River”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Recently took my wife and kids (13 and 10) on a half-day tour of Crystal River with Mac. Swimming in the crystal-clear springs was amazing. The deepest part must have been 20 feet and you could see clearly to the very bottom. The kids had a blast snorkeling in the clear spring water and seeing lots of fish and crabs. We did tandem kayaks, and glad we did - the length of the tour would probably have been a bit much on our 10-year-old daughter if she was solo. We went out with a few other groups and quickly made a bunch of new friends as part of the experience. Compared to a lot of other vacation activities this was a great value for a full four hours and we will most definitely try a different tour next time we are in Florida.

“Awesome Time on the Weeki Wachee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

My family and I had a wonderful time kayaking the Weeki Wachee River. Mac and Suzanne have the ability to quickly put first-timers like us at ease, so much so that it seemed we were spending the day with friends. In addition to kayaking, we were also able to swim and snorkel. Their equipment was easily the best on the river, and the boats may also be used as paddle boards. If you are considering a kayak trip, I highly recommend Florida Eco Adventures.
