I had a great experience interacting with the owners of Aardvark's Florida Kayak Co; Sue and Matt. Both were welcoming, professional and offered quality, personal service. It is so precious in the stage of busy, impersonal sport outfits to find an establishment you get truly personal attention and friendliness. Also of interest is that both Sue and Matt had previous...

We put in at Pirate's Cove in Ozello. The trip lasted three hours and included slightly experienced and inexperienced kayakers. Our guide was friendly, a bonafide expert on the area and extremely helpful. He taught us techniques for entering and exiting a kayak and how to correct for wind drift.

I booked a private manatee tour for early April. My credit card was not charged as they gave me the option to cancel if there were not a lot manatee's, as apparently that was usually the case this time of year. I actually figured I would go with my 15 year old son anyway as it would be a great... More

The Aardvark Florida Kayak is a great company to use! They provide excellent service, support, and equipment. Their kayak rentals are great both in terms of price, quality of gear, and the time they will take to ensure you're comfortable and ready to kayak. Both Susan and Matt went out of their way to help our group explore the Crystal... More

My wife and I went for a morning guided trip on the Chassahowitzka River with 6 other people - 3 hour trip. It was our first time visiting that area. Matt and Sue (owners) guided on this trip and are very knowledgeable on the wildlife - fantastic guides. Give them a call; they will help you plan out your trip.... More

We had a group of about 13 adult friends from different states who wanted a nature guide to take us on a river kayaking trip. Since we don't live in the area, we wanted an organized, guided trip. Aardvark did a great job setting that up for us and we had a great day. We plan to be back.

Traveled with a group to Crystal River to swim with manatees and kayak. Planned a custom kayaking trip on the Chassahowitzka RIver with a natural guide. The guide was knowledgeable and the kayaks excellent. Sue, the owner, was very helpful in planning our visit.
