We decided to try Estero River Outfitters last week. AWESOME, customer service! Besides guiding us in our decision on which Kayak to rent, they went above and beyond to help our handicapped companion. He walks with a crutch due to a childhood injury. Without the crutch, he is prone to falling. The staff here made things extremely easy. Two of them hooked his arms and guided him down the steps. Then, they took off his shoes and socks so he wouldn't get his feet wet before helping him get into the kayak. Once we returned from a beautiful paddle down the river, the sames guys helped him out of the kayak and put his shoes back on him. If anyone asks me, this will be the only place I recommend!

5 of us including a 10 year old in single kayaks for 2 hours of paddling. Some was difficult for the 10 year old paddling against the tide but having a dolphin swim up the river just past us, turn around and swim under the kayaks was a thrill! The staff were so very helpful and price very reasonable.

We arrived for a scheduled demo and Jeff met us promptly. He knew all of the details concerning the peddle kayak's we were interested in. When we narrowed the selection we did on water test drives. We were never rushed. Jeff spent all the time we needed, which turned out to be most of the morning. We are looking forward to the new adventures in the beautiful kayak's we selected. While we did not rent canoes or kayaks, there were lots of familys and couples who were. They have a lot of rental units. And the river is lovely.
