“Nice relaxing tour”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Very nice area to Kayak. If you've never kayaked, it's a great trip
to try out. If you have kayaked, you'll still enjoy a relaxing ride through
the mangroves. Ric knows the area well and doesn't take big crowds out.
Very personal and interesting.

“quality time on the water”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

I had taken a kayak trip before but it was crowded with too many people , this trip was a smaller group and you were able to hear what was said and not feel lost. I was out in late Dec so there was not as much wild life to see, but we did get to see dolphins pass us by. we were looking to spend some time between our cruise trip and the next stop. this was a fun way to enjoy the afternoon and convenient. the launch place has tables you can sit and and eat while you wait, there are bathrooms there to use and parking was convenient and free. you get a life jacket to wear and there is a bag to stow stuff behind the seats. wear shoes that go in the water and you will probably get your clothes a bit wet, so plan for it, and just change when your done.
Ric is very funny and took us around places wildlife hangs out. he also talks to other people on the water to ask if they have seen any activity and where. he points out what he sees and tells you about them. even tho there were not tons of animals to see, it was still fun just getting out and rowing around. we felt like we were lost in a jungle at times, it was very cool.
the kayaks are in good shape and easy to use. we kayak often enough and in different kinds, but I feel the beginner would do just fine in these. you get a lesson on what to do and he will wait and help you if you get stuck. half the fun is getting stuck and then un-stuck in the mangroves. we were with my college age kids, who went all over the place while us "older folk" kept to a more reasonable pace. oh, and you get to pick a kayak for two or just one. so if you have a kid who is afraid to be on their own, you can be with them.

“Kayak tour”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

This tour was really nice and more than I excepted. Ric was very knowledgable about the area and wildlife. The tour went through several mangrove areas, which was very cool. It was well worth the drive from Orlando. The location was easy to find and easy to get in and out of the kayaks.
