I have kayak previously with Gregg, but last night on the water was awesome. Always a good time, professional, safe and learn about Mother Nature.

Went with our company small group, Bio luminescence only happens in August it's amazing and something you have to see Greg is an awesome guide and keeps his trips on the smaller side, so you get an up close experience. it's a nighttime trip @ 8:30 so no sunscreen but bring the bug spray. Have also gone on another trip... More

Our family did two kayaking trips: the Manatee Encounter and the Bioluminescence trip. We went with Sean on the Manatee Encounter. He was very friendly and told us a lot about the area. On our way into the springs we came across three manatees. We were able to stay for quite awhile watching them. They swam around and under our... More

This was a really great experience. It was a little more challenging than I expected, as I am still a novice at kayaking, but the Bioluminescence Tour at Merritt Island was so much fun! Greg (or Craig?) and his son "Gator" took very good care of us. I would recommend it for older children and adults as the currents were... More

My daughter and I went on the Manatee trip to Blue Springs and then the bioluminescence trip later that day (with a nap in between). These trips were the highlight of our time in Orlando. (We also spent two days at Universal, which we enjoyed, but found hot and crowded). Our guide, Sean, warned us that manatees were not as... More

All I can say is wow. The freakin water lights up. It was magical, like something out of Avatar. Sean was an awesome guide. Highly recommend doing this if you haven't seen this in your lifetime yet. But take some good bugspray. The sand gnats and mosquitoes will feast on you if not prepared.

This is a wonderful evening paddle where you get the chance to stir the waters and watch your paddle, your boat and usually invisible creatures swimming around you, glow. It's not a trick but unique to a few rivers only. The paddle lasts about 2-21/2 hours and is wonderful. Greg, the owner and guide, provides boats, paddles and life vests.... More

Great experience. not a thing to worry. When we got tired there was rest, when we got hungry there was food and drinks. We saw some gators, manatees, snails and other wild animals... Greg and Sean took care of everything. must do!
