Our guide, Greg, was amazing. He was very knowledgeable, helpful getting us set up in our kayaks, and pointed out a ton of things I would not have seen. We drove much further than we would have liked, however. We'd signed up for a closer tour that included lunch and kept getting emails that we were being switched ... further... More

We kayaked a different river each day and Greg Pflug's knowledge of the rivers, birds and local history was extensive and entertaining. He exhibited an... More

My wife and I went on a weekday morning to Blue Spring State Park to meet our guide, Todd. The meeting point is actually just a bit past the entrance to the park. There were about 10 of us in the group. I had called Todd in advance to arrange for a ride-on tandem kayak because we have kayaked only... More

We took our 3 children on Greg's Manatee Kayak tour, we had the best day of our whole holiday! The scenery and wildlife was amazing, such a treat to get to be so close to all the animals in their natural habitats.

Todd our guide was outstanding. The manatees came right up to our kayaks! Saw alligators, hawks & large number of birds. Perfect day.

We did the Manatee Encounter. Unfortunately, didn't see any manatees, but still a fun kayaking adventure down the St John river and through some smaller side areas. Todd, our guide, was really good at pointing out alligators.

We did the manatee experience which was an awesome experience. There were TONS of manatee in the water, and some of them came right up to our boat! We also saw lots of beautiful birds along the way. Our guide Jeff was great - experienced and friendly. He even brought hot chocolate! He really made the tour memorable. This is... More

My husband and I came to Florida in the winter for our anniversary and some sunshine. The weather did not quite cooperate with our plans and Todd and Adventures in FL did an excellent job of accommodating our schedules so that got to experience beautiful FL with an individualized tour on a different day. The serenity with the kayak tour... More

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.
