The three hour morning tour was perfect for us inexperienced kayakers. Julie, Chris and another young man( sorry I forgot your name😳) were excellent tour guides. We were lucky enough to see... More

We did the morning Segway tour; it was just us and the guide! It was a blast. Fun and relaxing; saw some great sights and the history was interesting too.

I took my 10-year old son out for his first kayaking trip and he had a blast! The staff at Kayak Amelia were very helpful and friendly. They provided a map of the creek system to help us find our way, and also gave us some tips - like paddling close to the shorelines will keep you out of the... More

We were a very mixed group in age and the one thing we had in common was - no ability! But after an easy-going training session and our safari into the backwoods trails of Fort George we returned experts one and all! Mike and Robb were great craic as we say in Ireland, and provided us lots of interesting snippets... More

The area is peaceful with many birds, and is a great break from the beach crowds. The paddling wasn't difficult, and the sand bars and secluded areas toward the turn around point were very beautiful. The only downside is the return. When we left, we launched off the beach. When we returned, the tide was such that the beach was... More

We had a great experience. We had such a wonderful time kayaking. I recommend this place for activity and things to do. The view while Kayaking was breath taking. We will definitely do this more often.

We try and do different activities each time we visit. 2 years ago my older (13) and younger (11) sons at the time accompanied me on our first Kayak Amelia trip and we had a great... More

My wife and I had no experience kayaking, but we wanted to go on the guided "marsh tour" with Kayak Amelia. We arrived early and met some of the super-friendly staff (CJ, Cris and Jules). Then someone said, "dolphins!" and everyone gathered by the water to watch two dolphins swimming. It was the perfect start to a perfect day. Despite... More

I have been on other Segway tours in the Caribbean and this was just as enjoyable. It was fun, easy to do, the guide was very knowledgeable about the history, the surrounding aspects of nature and entertaining. We never felt uneasy on the terrain going from roads to paths. The equipment was well maintained and easy to learn. I would... More
