We decided to try the one-hour kayak adventure for our nine year olds. They both loved it, and so did we. Our guide, Nick, did a great job of making this a good first trip. We look forward to trying new adventures in the future!

Our family had a blast touring the Alligator River Refuge with Justin. We had 12 people ranging in age from 7 to 72; everybody enjoyed it. We saw an alligator. They are well camouflaged and we never would have spotted it without Justin’s trained eye.

Hi Yvette, thank you for your inquiry! Our tour at Mashoes Creek is the location that we often see dolphins. This is in the sound and not in the ocean and there's no guarantee you'll see dolphins. You could always rent... More
