Our first ever Segway adventure and it was a blast. Once we mastered balancing and speed, we were comfortable seeing the sights. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable and shared interesting stories of the old plantation. We saw lots of birds, including wild peacocks, and huge burrowing turtles. Fun for all ages!

I have been wanting to check this out for years. Thanks to a friend coming in town I finally got to try it. It was so much fun. Super chill paddle and really informative guide, Mike. I can't wait to return and check out the other paddles!!

Really neat experience. The perspective that you get being in the mashes and standing on the SUP board is superb. The activity can be as physically challenging as you want to make it. It can be pretty tame or you can amp it up if you'd like. The views and the wildlife you see is awesome and this piece of... More

Great place to enjoy nature at it's best. One suggestion would be that the staff help get the Kayaks in the water for you. The dock can be hard to get into your kayak.

I participated in a fitness class -- on a standup paddleboard! I have never been on a SUP and was afraid I wouldn't even be able to stand up, but the instructors (and other participants) were very encouraging and made sure I had all the information I needed. The class was challenging and SO much fun! I'm hooked on SUP... More

I did the sunset event from Amelia Island. I've kayaked before, but Chris's review of necessary techniques was helpful. He shares a wealth of info on the area. We got the water view of Fort Clinch and crossed over to Cumberland Island where we landed and viewed the wild horses. Collected a few shells on the walk. Viewing the sunset... More

Four of us had a fantastic time kayaking with our fabulous guide, Cris (3-hour marsh tour) on Saturday, Sept 3. The van took us to where we started at the kayak drop site of Fort George Island so we could paddle with the current through beautiful Fort George estuary and Simpson Creek all way to where our cars parked at...

Did the kayaking this morning with wonderful weather and great guides. Beautiful area, high tide and lots to see. Guides were great in reducing any novice concerns and provided a safe and informative tour. (Even the secret trek) Would recommend to others and return ourselves.

Husband and I made our initial kayak trip with Cris. He gave very detailed info on the whole Amelia Island area. It won't take you long to feel his genuine love of his job and the area too. Kayaking with Kayak Amelia should be a trip everyone experiences. We were very satisfied with the 3 hour tour and will return... More
