We had an amazing time kayaking and spending time at the springs with Ronnie! Everything was provided for and thought through. He was wonderful and helped us with everything. He also took a lot of pictures and went above and beyond what was necessary.

We had a great experience with this outfitter. This was a first time visit for us and they took care of us very well. We had to paddle up to Cypress Springs, about an hour Against The Current, but it was not too bad. The spring was really beautiful but very packed on a summer weekend.

I was reccomend Old Cypress Canoe Rentals from a friend when another company stood them up. The staff were friendly, professional, attentive and accommodating. The trip down the river/creek was beautiful and peaceful. I don't recall experiencing any bugs during the trip until we got to the woods leading back to our car. (Mosquitos). I highly recommend this company and will be using them again I the future.

This was a highlight of my visit to Panama City beach area. I visit my daughter, son in-law and grand daughter here several times a year and we like to visit rivers to tube, Canoe and kayak. We have visited several other outfitters and I found these guys to be hands down the best. The river is calm and non-threatening, with lots of shade and old forest growth. (Unfortunately the first river we visited this week had lost a lot of trees due to hurricane). But this still had a canopy of green. The guy who helped us at the site was super friendly and provided tons of information so we felt confident about our trip. I am older (58) and not in good shape, but easily managed the kayak from drop off to the take out place... which has a swimming area, barge, picnic tables and campfire place. Next time we will bring picnic items, firewood for the take out place. We will definitely come back.

We visit PCB every year in October. We decided we wanted to do something different this trip and booked a canoe trip with Old Cypress. I have never been canoeing before so I was nervous but the trip was pretty easygoing. I think we will go with kayaks next time just because they looked more comfortable. The water was cold but beautiful and we were able to see lots of turtles, birds, and a deer on the creek banks. The price was very reasonable and I liked that you rowed back down to your car and didn’t have to wait for someone to come pick you up at the end. The guys who dropped us off were good at giving us directions down the creek. We will definitely be doing this from now on during our yearly trips.
