My son and I were looking for something outside of the Orlando theme parks. We both enjoy kayaking, so we searched for a good kayak tour and found this one. It is a 3 hour kayak in Blue Spring State Park, which is an hour and a half drive from Orlando. We thought we'd give it a shot. From the... More

Had a great time. The manatee trip is an easy paddle especially for new paddlers. Todd did a great job explaining and leading our group.

We had family in for Christmas and were short two kayaks when we went to Blue Springs so thought we could rent two when we got there. Little did we realize Blue Springs is packed the day after Christmas! There was a long line out the gate when we arrived. The Ranger helping with traffic saw our kayaks on top... More

Thank you for taking the time to post such a wonderful review. Adventures in Florida was started by a group of family and friends that really loved the experience kayaking brought to them. Nothing makes us happier than when other families find the same love. More

My wife and I went on the Manatee Encounter and it was the hilite of our vacation. Our guide, Todd, was outstanding and was able to provide a great deal of information and insight into the flora, fauna and the habitat in which they exist. And we got to see the Manatees! We went to great viewing spots and had... More

We went on the manatee tour and it was an amazing experience! It was my husband and me and our 10 and 11 yo boys, we rented canoes, and our guide, Todd, was awesome! He was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful when I needed help steering. The manatees came right up to the boats and it was so beautiful and... More

My friend & I spent a wonderful 3 hours kayaking on the St John's River with our amazing, knowledgable and funny guide, Jeff Dubois. We were visiting from Los Angeles, CA and didn't want to visit tourist sites. We called a little late in the morning but were accomodated by Greg who said he would arrange for our own private...

We couldn't agree with you more, the real magic kingdom is natural Florida not a theme park. We also think Jeff is great, he gets so excited about birds, bugs, and low bellied reptiles, his enthusiasm is contagious. Please come back soon and let us show you all some more magical places! More

Todd gave an amazing tour and was an amazing guide!m I unfortunately fell in twice and he was the perfect rescuer lol Despite the night being cloudy, we were able to see the moon once we reached the island. I would definitely recommend this as an activity to do for anyone whether they're a Florida Native or visiting out of... More

We did the manatee encounter with Jeff. All parts of the experience were memorable and I would recommend it! He was able to teach part of our group how to use the kayak. We saw manatees and alligators along with a variety of other animals. He had a great understanding of what we saw and was able to answer all... More
