The Lofton Creek kayaking trip was beautiful and very peaceful. Pete was a great guide with my daughter and I. He was extremely knowledgeable about the area, the various trees and wildlife around us. The creek, which would compare to a small river, was very easy to paddle with only a slight current.

Amelia Island Newcomer’s Club books monthly kayaking adventures with Up The Creek Expeditions. Our paddles have had anywhere from 2-11 participants over the last year. We always have a great time. Pete and Jen are timely, professional, knowledgeable and attentive. The last two months trips have been on Lofton Creek north and south from the Yulee launch. The trips are enjoyable for any age and kayaking abilities and instruction is provided if needed. We have also been on 3 trips in southern Georgia, Cumberland Island, Egan’s Creek, and Big Talbot Island in the past year and each has been different and exciting. Highly recommend their company for your next adventure!

This was such a great activity for my family. Booking was easy and everything was ready upon our arrival. Lofton Creek provided not only a scenic view, but also the chance to see a bit of wildlife. Because this is a self-guided tour, you can move at your own pace and upon your return, a staff member is ready to help you unload and takes care of the kayaks. This is definitely something we will do again. A word of advice, the directions listed on the ticket are correct. The boat launch had me confused, as I was expecting to see a depot/shop for the organizer. However, we immediately saw the trailer with kayaks when we drove into the parking lot.

My family had a wonderful time on Lofton Creek! We took an early morning kayaking trip with Pete, and we were the only people on the water for quite a while. It was peaceful and beautiful, and our three year-old enjoyed it as much as we did. To our surprise, we saw Big Mama, a huge alligator resting very close to where we were to turn around and head back! Pete helped us (safely) capture the moment. He was fantastic, sharing stories along the way and answering our many questions. Our daughter wanted to do it all again when we were back on dry land!
