We had a great Myakka River kayak trip with Almost Heaven Kayak Adventures in the Myakka River State Park. The scenery was outstanding, different varieties of birds were plentiful, and we viewed several alligators up close and personal. This was an outstanding tour, with an excellent guide---Alan, operated by a first rate company. If you want an opportunity to tour the Myakka River away from the crowds in the Park, I highly recommend Almost Heaven. Number of other individuals we encountered on this 4+ hour trip—None.
