Owner description: Motorized Kayak Tours! Enjoy a breath-taking guided three hour motorized kayak tour of part of Florida's Indian River Lagoon. With over 4000 species of plants and animals, it is the most diverse estuary in North America. Easy to use, our kayaks come with small pollution-free electric motors and a simple steering system that will allow you to relax and enjoy the scenic beauty of the lagoon’s wildlife.

My wife and I did the 3 hour jungle tour on November 14th and it was magical. Like many other reviewers we've done airboat tours, pontoon boats, and wildlife bus tours on many previous occasions but to glide through the water effortlessly and - most important - silently was an extraordinary treat! We felt like we were transported back in time and might surely see some swamp-dwelling dinosaur around the next bend in the river. Our guides, Linda and Danny were wonderful in their knowledge of the wildlife and ecosystem and their love of nature and joy at sharing it was evident and infectuous. Even though we had some rain near the end of our journey it did not dampen our enjoyment, and the overwhelming sense of calm we experienced silently gliding through the mangroves. We've traveled all over the world and this was a highlight that should not be missed.

During a two week holiday on the Treasure Coast, my wife Cathryn and I experienced river boat trips and Airboat rides in the swamps, but nothing compared to the 3 hour motorised kayak tour, led by Linda and Danny, through the Indian River mangrove islands, seeing wildlife close-up and feeling as if we had gone back in time. The knowledge and compassion shown by Linda and Danny toward the local wildlife and ecology of the inlet did them credit, making our tour so interesting and our visit was made so special when we observed river dolphin close by. Any stay in the Port St Lucie, Fort Pierce, Vero Beach and the rest of the Treasure Coast area will be enhanced by a trip with Motorized Kayak Adventures. It's a must do!

We have gone kayaking on our own but since each family member has different rowing abilities, it was somewhat of a conflict about how long to go and where. This was totally enjoyable. It was very peaceful under the mangrove canapy and we saw lots of wildlife along the way. Nice accomodating staff. Will go again.

This was one of the biggest highlights of our vacation to Florida in October. Our hosts went above & beyond to accomodate our schedule with the weather that didn't seem to cooperate until the last day of our trip. The experience of slipping silently through the water & observing the wildlife was something we'll always remember.
I would highly recommend this to anyone who's looking for a family adventure that will leave lasting memories. We hope to do this again!!

I've done three kayak tours and each one has been so great. You learn more about Florida and ecosystems than you can expect from some of the nicest people in florida. If you love nature, be sure to go. The motorized kayak is the coolest. It helps you go farther than you can go because theres much less effort. You can litterally float under the mangrove trees and thru the most inaccessible places. I've seen baby octypus, manatees, many big birds, jumping fish. Every tour is great.
