My husband and I went on the Manatee Encounter kayaking experience with Todd as our guide. We totally enjoyed the experience. After a day at Magic Kingdom, we really needed something that was quiet and low-key. Todd was super friendly and informative. He made sure we were comfortable in a kayak before starting (we both had previous experience), and got... More

We had such a good time kayaking with the manatees. The guide was knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife, etc. which made it a great learning experience as well. My only concern was that it was a lot of effort for our kids and they tapped out before the end. The guide made the tour a little shorter to... More

Wow! Wonderful morning on the St. John's River, we saw lots of manatees at the mouth of the springs. And in the river. A couple came up close to our yaks. Todd is a great tour guide, pointing out birds, Gators sunning on the banks of the river. Beautiful scenery, flowers, Totally awesome. Thanks Todd for a great Florida adventure.

The manatee tour was an AWESOME experience! Seeing them in both spring and river waters was the real way to see them and the rest of the Florida wildlife. This trip gets you from being right with them in the river to walking the spring with them swimming in it below. Had PLENTY of other animals all over the spectrum... More

Awesome group and Thanks Greg for putting together an excellent trip. Will be back for more. The Florida Caverns is a great place to visit with lots to explore nearby. The Chipola river offers springs, nice water and easy paddling. Greg has a great sense and knowledge of the area and always ready to go.

This experience was a gift from our son and an enjoyable way to spend a morning. We joined a very nice couple from Singapore, with our guide Todd, in hopes of seeing manatees up close. We were not disappointed! Todd was an expert guide, having grown up in the area. He explained the rudiments of kayaking, got us launched, and... More

The manatee experience was a truly amazing experience . Blue Springs has such a tranquil feeling above with the old Cyprus & hanging moss while floating on crystal waters . The family pods of manatees below are the true show. very curious & playfull creatures, gentile gaints. The equipment & professionalism was far superior to other local companies I've toured... More

Four nites and days of fun, paddling, and a cave tour. Had a great time and enjoyed the entire group of people. Very well lead by Greg, I will continue to participate in his upcoming events.

I just spent 4 fantastic days with Adventures in Florida camping at Florida Caverns State Park. We kayaked the unspoiled Chipola River that mysteriously disappears into the ground only to reappear some a distance away. Add to that unique disappearing trick, the fact that the river has caves and an unbelievable number of beautiful springs. As you paddle from spring... More
