We did a morning tour with Rachel 2 weeks ago and had a great time. We chose the time we did because we were able to explore Mangrove areas that even Rachel had never tried to navigate before. I can get bored easily but exploring can usually hold my interest and we got to check out different kinds of birds and animals on the way - plus I got to confuse some old guy at a fuel pump by telling him I'd need some gas for my kayak on the way back. We each had our single kayaks and it was a little work going into the wind but we expected that since we didn't go with the motorized kayak option (that's not actually a thing).

Then as we headed back Rachel took a comment by my wife as a challenge. (This was our last activity on the water before we left Florida and we had yet to see any manatees that we kept hearing about and we told Rachel that we thought this was a Florida conspiracy theory. She was determined to prove us wrong.) I think it was not 2 minutes later that 2 manatees popped up out of the water about 100 feet from us and we followed them down the river almost half a mile as best we could. It was just the 3 of us (if you don't count the manatees) and we had a great time together.

I would recommend this trip, this company, and Rachel.

We were a group of 7. Ages 4,5,9, 39,40, 65 and 66. We all had a great time. The 9 year old had his own kayak. I would only recommend that for kids that have kayaked before. I would definitely not miss this trip if you ate in the area and I do plan on going again. We did the morning, maybe next time I would do sunset. Just be clear when you make a reservation as to we're you are meeting. You are actually meeting at the CVS parking lot.

We took a kayak tour today. The water was a gorgeous blue and the sun was shining. Our guide, Don, pointed out many different birds and was very knowledgeable about the natural environment. We learned all about the different types of mangroves and saw lots of mangrove crabs.
A great experience that I would recommend to everyone.

We spent the morning today kayaking with Rachel and the Spanish River Paddle Company. Four adults and three little ones so, we took two doubles and a single kayak which worked out great. Rachel was a fantastic guide and pointed out a tremendous amount of wildlife. We were amazed at how much we were able to see including manatee, heron, osprey, pelicans and more...Our four year old loved the crabs in the mangroves and was thrilled with Rachel and her upbeat personality. We will be back next year!

My wife and were looking to do some kayaking in the Boca/Delray beach area, and found online that the Spanish River Paddle Company was highly recommended. We signed up for a morning, high-tide kayak through the mangroves and the intercostal waterway. We were very pleased with our experience and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Rachel was a great guide and took good care of us. Will definitely be coming back to paddle with them again.
