My wife and I took the Lofton Creek 2 hour tour on April 12, 2021 and could not have enjoyed it more. The equipment was good, the company is professional and well organized and our guide Ben was pleasant and informative. Lofton Creek is a perfect venue for meandering in tree covered waters where we saw a number of large turtles and one small alligator. We found this location to be more interesting than paddling in larger waters. As an older couple, we found the two hours trip was just the right length for us. Long enough to see a beautiful waterway and have an adventure without becoming an endurance contest. If we ever travel back to the area, we will definitely take another trip with Amelia Island Kayak Excursions.

We called on a Sunday for a Lofton river tour for our family of 4. We talked with the owner Mark and he booked us a trip for the following Tuesday morning. We have 2 boys aged 5 and 10 and they found the trip to be fun and very interesting. They were able to have a seat on a tandem kayak and help paddle. The tour was very well managed and they provide bottled water and snacks. We saw turtles and many birds. All in all this was a great way to spend the morning. The river was beautiful a nod the guides made everything so easy and fun! Highly recommended.

The 10 people in our group give our guides, Aaron and Madison and the Cumberland Island Kayak tour 10 paddles up or a glowing 5 star review. We loved the low tide paddle into Georgia to explore the gorgeous beaches of Cumberland while searching for shells and sand dollars and getting an amazing history recap of all that has transpired on Cumberland. Aaron was excellent and made the history easy to understand and our entire group wished we could have signed up for another tour if we had the time. The double kayaks were comfortable, sturdy and easy to navigate. We saw wild horses from a distance and dolphins up close. We also loved the excellent photos that Aaron was snapping throughout our tour. We hope to return to Amelia and paddle to Dungeness on our next visit.
