“The brightest rainy day”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

We almost missed this because of the rain, but fortunately, there was a break in the weather and we were able to go. Not only was the experience of kayaking down the river in the late afternoon amazing (beautiful, peaceful and refreshing), but our guide was just as wonderful. He was a gracious host and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Amelia Island Kayak - they are top notch!

What a great day! Mark is a super guide. Very peaceful paddle and personalized experience with our family. No baby alligators this time, but we will be back, hopefully to see Okefenoke. Thanks!

“First time kayaking”
Reviewed December 25, 2013

This was my first time kayaking and I am happy to say it was a great experience for both my husband and me. Mark made us feel comfortable and confident about being in the water, especially me. It was a beautiful, serene paddle of Lofton Creek and Mark is knowledgeable and entertaining. We can't wait to do this again with Mark!

“Relaxing Guided Tour of Lofton Creek”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

My husband and I love spending time outdoors, especially during a Florida winter. We greatly enjoyed our two-hour, guided tour of Lofton Creek. Mark took us out for a peaceful paddle and shared wonderful kayaking advice as well as interesting and heartfelt stories about his kayaking experiences. Next time we are in town, we will definitely contact him for a sunset paddle. We can’t wait to see the pictures!
