Karen was a fantastic guide. Our son is on the Autism spectrum and had only been in a kayak once. Karen was very attentive, encouraging and patient. She also has a vast knowledge of the flora and fauna. It was a great trip.

Highly recommend booking a kayak trip with Karen. It was super easy to book a reservation through her website. Our trip left from Honest John’s Fish Camp, a short drive from Melbourne and close to other attractions (like the Sebastian Inlet). Karen was friendly and knowledgeable and tailored the trip to match our abilities. The kayaks were great quality, which makes a world of difference when paddling into the wind. We learned so much and look forward to future trips when we are in the area.

This Kayaking experience was far more than I expected. My wife and I and our two sons had no prior kayaking experience at all. Karen was very patient and helpful in guiding us through the process. We were moving along well thanks to her expertise. She took us to some very interesting places where we saw dolphins and manatees up close. She talked about the local animals we saw and provided great detail. Very informative. She is a wealth of knowledge in regards to Florida and it's wildlife. She eagerly answered all the questions we asked no matter how silly they may have been. She also brought along a very good camera and took lot's of pictures that she later sent to us. No extra charge! I would highly recommend this experience with her. You won't be disappointed!

My wife and I went with Karen on a kayak tour from Honest John's Fish Camp. It was nothing short of spectacular. If you ever wanted to see manatees, dolphins, eagles, osprey, and kingfishers in the wild, this is the way to do it. We had a pod of dolphins escorting our kayaks for about a mile through the lagoon - it was unbelievable. Of course, Karen would be the first to say that we were very lucky to have that much interaction. However, Karen knows the area and where the manatees hang out, and guides us to the best spot because she can see the dolphins coming. So, yes, we were lucky, but she guided us to be in the right place at the right time for a great experience. Everything else - from booking, safety, training, and the return was great, easy, no problems. We would highly recommend this tour, as an adventure, as a wildlife tour, or as a fun date.
