We had an excellent 2-hour kayak trip for three adults. Mike's knowledge of the area and its history made the experience a memorable one. We have already booked another trip with him. Highly recommend.

We had a blast on our girls trip with Mike! He was very knowledgeable about the wildlife and the history of the area. He truly loves what he does and makes sure his guests have a fabulous time. He made sure we saw all the wildlife we could and always had his eyes peeled for new creatures. He is well accommodating and professional. We are already planning our next girls trip to take this tour again!

An excellent stress free experience with Mike. Easy to book, reasonably priced, and amazing experience. Mike is well knowledgeable with the park and great conversationalist. Can’t wait to come back and visit again. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Our family enjoyed a fabulous experience kayaking at Silver Springs with Mike as our guide. He did a wonderful job explaining the history of the area we were kayaking through and pointed out the beautiful animals along the way.

My wife and I are brand-new residents of The Villages in Florida (half-time transplants from Wisconsin) and we've been trying all the activities nearby so, when we have visitors from up north, we have ideas of what's fun to do and what, frankly, isn't. We booked Silver Springs Kayaking "last minute" and we were hopeful that we'd be able to get in next day - and thankfully, they were able to make it work for us. As it turned out, Mike took his Sunday and devoted it to my wife and I for a personal tour down the Silver River!! We were completely impressed with every aspect of this tour... Mike was amazing and his knowledge of the wildlife and plantlife was beyond impressive!! The tour, for us, was even better than advertised! If you're not familiar with kayaking, DON'T WORRY!! The water is as calm as glass and protected on both sides of the river with dense trees so there's no worry of the water becoming "choppy". When we launched, we paddled down-river for only a few minutes and we encountered 4 manatee!! We paddled around them and I dropped my GoPro down to get underwater shots of these amazing creatures! Then, during the rest of the tour, we came across alligators, monkeys, turtles by the hundreds, birds by the thousands, and, the water was SO clear, we could see the various fish species without getting wet!! We made the decision right then and there that any time any of our adult children or friends come down to visit us in Florida, this event will *absolutely* be on the schedule!! Mike has a customer - and a friend - for life!! P.S. Here's a pro tip... Bring lots of sunscreen, a hearty lunch, a good waterproof camera, and enough money for a big tip (because, honestly, you'll regret it if you don't)!!
