As first timers, my wife and I really didn't know how this was going to work out. We booked an Eco-Tour and a Tandem boat. Weather was a little overcast but as soon as our guides Mike and Buddy showed up, our fears of a bad day all changed ! Both these men were awesome! Friendly and Informative. They showed... More

Our instructor, Nick, was very nice and professional who took the time to explain and teach us how to ride a segway. This was a first time for all of us. He was patient and a good teacher. On the trails, he was a lot more informative than I expected who knew the history and fauna very well. I live... More

We had a great morning on Simpson Creek with Mike (he's a great guide) and Ray (the owner of KA--he accompanied us on his SUP). Mike took us on a 'detour' through the marsh where we got up close to all sorts of birds (egrets of all sorts, herons, terns). We did NOT see a manatee (which would made my... More

My wife and I rented SUPs from Kayak Amelia. They are not on the main island but south in a state preserve. They are helpful and will provide a lesson if needed. We were experienced so off we went following the map provided. We encountered a variety of wildlife including a large pelican that eyeballed me from about five feet... More

Family from NYC, visiting Florida for the first time; our son and his fiancé, our daughter and her significant other and Vinnie and I had an awesome experience. 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

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
