Matt was extremely knowledgeable and answered even our most detailed questions. Top quality kayaks made for an great journey through the three sisters channels. I have a new found respect and understanding for the manatees. Aardvark is truly committed to creating a better planet for all creatures. This tour was awesome!

We had a wonderful time with Matt. He was very knowable about local fauna & flora. Our girls say it was the best part of the trip. Saw a ton of manatees, birds, & dolphins. Matt is a fantastic guide. Looking forward to doing it again soon.

Our tour guide was great and we saw many manatees and actually were lucky enough to see some dolphins! The poor part of the experience was when we were greeted at the kayak store. We got there at 8:32, we were supposed to be there at 8:30, and the person who greeted us was very condescending telling us if we... More

The staff was really friendly and knowledgeable. Helped us plan our day stand up Paddleboarding and also showed us where some manatee hotspots were. They had really good prices on the rentals.

This adventure was a birthday gift from my daughter, but I am sure she chose this activity because she loves to kayak and wanted to see manatees up close without infringing on their space. We arrived at the store and Sue took care of checking us in and explaining what the day would be like. We followed her to the... More

This was our first tour with Aardvark and we will definitely be back! My mom and I met in FL from RI and SC for a half day of private guided tour by Matt. Sue got us checked in and gave us a run down and then we met up with Matt at the launch point- just a minute up... More

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
