We took two 16-yr.old girls and our 10-yr. old son kayaking for the first time with Adventures Kayaking. What an amazing experience for all of us! Sterling made everyone comfortable and I never doubted our safety for a moment. As a novice kayaker, I wasn't sure how I'd get along for a three-hour tour, but the pace was great, and we stopped and floated often so that Sterling could fill us in on an abundance of information about the things we were seeing. We floated among a dozen manatee for quite a while, watched dolphin playing and eating close-up, awed at floating through a mangrove island, and learned a ton of fascinating things about the ecosystem of Estero. We can't say enough great things about this tour. If there's an experience you want to take away from your Florida trip, you really want to consider this one!
