My son and I rented kayaks from South River this afternoon. We popped in right before lunchtime and were helped right away. The waiver signing and payment was quick and efficient. We were off in about 20 minutes total down the river. The ride was peaceful and even though it was 90 degrees, there was a breeze coming off the water and there were some shady spots so it was not too bad. We are moderately experienced kayakers so we had no safety reservations (except maybe the alligators..) or equipment questions. The navigation was not too tricky, which was one of the reasons we chose this place. Most of the branches were dead ends, making the main river not hard to follow. I did make an unintended circle on the way back though because I was enjoying the scenery and not watching the curves that carefully. It was a great experience and I plan to go again with my other children and husband.

We had a great time kayaking with our 16 & 18 year old sons today. Ed the owner is very helpful. We each had our own boat & packed a lunch to eat at the end of the river. The river ride is very peaceful, but we did enjoy an alligator sighting and saw dozens of turtles. It's a great way to spend 3 hours - highly recommend South River Outfitters!

This is one of the most beautiful places to paddle as it feels like you are traveling back in time to old Florida before it was so filled with tourists and commercialism. The winding river is filled with wildlife and beautiful fauna to watch as you meander through the curves. If you pack a lunch there is a great picnic stop to enjoy the surroundings. Ed, who runs the shop, is always helpful and full of great advice and useful information. A definite must on your list of "to dos"!
