My sisters and I called Daniel about kayaking as novices that didn't really know what we wanted. He answered many questions on the phone and many more when he delivered three kayaks to our rental. He and his wife were both professional and super friendly. They gave perfect advise, offered to text us if the weather changed and told us to call them when we wanted him to pick them up. Thanks to Daniel we were able to kayak the backwater in the morning, take a break and kayak to Atsena Otie Key in the afternoon. We saw white pelicans, manatees, porpoise, and lots of birds. Thanks to these great people, kayaking was the highlight of our sisters' weekend! Don't use anyone else in Cedar Key!!

Dan and Arielle were fantastic. We looked into renting kayaks at the harbor, but they were not at all flexible...the only choice was to launch from the harbor location. Cedar Key Paddling literally will take you anywhere. They directed us to ridge #4, met us there to launch, met us there to pick us up, and we had a fantastic time paddling in the calm backwaters. We often rent kayaks when we travel, and this was far and away the best kayak rental service that we've ever used...

We spent most of a week in Cedar Key and kayaked with Cedar Key Paddling twice. Daniel was great to work with. The first time out, we called the night before and arranged to meet near the marina the next morning. Daniel and Danny Jr. were there waiting for us with our kayaks ready to go. He pointed us to some great spots. We didn't know exactly how long we wanted to be out, so he said to just call or text when we were ready to head back. Two days later we were set to head out for a longer trip in the morning, but the winds were too high. Daniel said he would meet us later in the afternoon at a different spot where we could paddle around the backwaters behind the island. The whole time we were out Daniel kept an eye on the weather and called to make sure we were aware of an approaching storm. Daniel was really accommodating, the equipment was in great shape, and the price was fantastic. We'll be going back to Cedar Key and we'll rent from Cedar Key Paddling again!

We spontaneously decided to hit the waters of Cedar Key the day we called Daniel at Cedar Key Paddling. He was happy to work with us at such late notice. We made a plan to meet up in two hours. He helped us determine the best spot for kayaking based on the day's weather, keeping an eye on it until we put in. The terrain was great and we thoroughly enjoyed our time on the water. Daniel picked us up right on time when we were done. Overall, we had a fantastic time thanks to Cedar Key Paddling. We look forward to heading back!

We made a last minute decision to go kayaking with a large dog. Daniel and Arielle dropped off all our equipment right outside our door within minutes, and made us feel like family. They gave us tips on where to go, weather, etc. They even took pictures, and photoshopped them to perfection for us as a goodbye gift!

Can't wait to see them again soon, and enjoy the beautiful kayaking!
