This kayak trip was something I wanted to do for some time. It did not disappoint. I arrived without a reservation and was signed up to go in about 5 minutes. I asked if there were any senior discounts and the fellow there said yes and I saved 10%. He said he wouldn't have asked me if I was a senior, so if you qualify don't forget to ask for the discount. I rented a dry bag $3 and got a map and off I went. The rental guy was very nice and informative about where to go and what I might see. He advised me to take my time and enjoy the wildlife and he would pick me up at Morris Bridge in a little over 3 hours. He arrived right on time for the pick up. Masks were required on the van ride back to John Sargeant Park. He cleaned and sanitized the kayaks once we got back. I would highly recommend this place and the trip. I saw lot's of alligators, and so many birds and turtles. I've heard many say they were afraid to kayak where there are Alligators but once you go over the initial jitters you will be fine. I went alone and I was fine . The river trip was awesome. Water levels were very low and there are lot's of tree beaches to paddle around but all doable.

I was in Tampa last minute and looking for something to do. I had to cancel a kayak trip at home because of my visit so I thought a kayak trip in Florida would be nice. Canoe escape got me in a boat and on the water in no time. The float was excellent. I honestly lost count of all the wild life and had to stop taking pictures. My friends and family are getting tired of hearing about my trip, so I shared it here instead.

Great trip down the river. We did the 2 hour paddle from Sargeant Park to Morris Bridge Park which was a fairly easy trip. The river was a little low and we had to get out at one point to get unstuck, but I would highly recommend this trip. Lots of alligators and many, many birds, included a bald eagle and a few osprey with their catch.
