Awesome, beautiful canoe trip and wonderful staff. Couldn't have been happier with my experience. Perfect way to round out a Clearwater Beach vacation.

“Relaxing afternoon activity! Great tour.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2014

The tour was amazing. The river was clam and partly sunny. We saw gators, turtles, birds and other wildlife the entire time. A relaxing afternoon activity! Thank you James for the fun adventure!

“Relaxing with nature”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014 via mobile

Don't go to Tampa and not do this canoe trip. It's only a couple of hours of slow flowing, alligator and bird watching. I was able to get some great photos.

“Great day with hard work”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

Me and my husband picked 4 hours trip in tandem kayak. Views were amazing: alligators, birds, turtles.However, 4 hours it is a long time. There are plenty of trees in the water/river and you need to be very careful once paddling. It is a hard work. Generally it was beautiful day but we were very tired.

“Great way to experience the Hillsborough River”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

Really enjoyed our guided trip. It was three hours in length which was just the right amount of time. Our guide Phil was very knowledgeable and helped us navigate a few of the trickier spots. Saw lots of alligators, birds and turtles. Our kids are 10 and 12 and they had no problem paddling with us and were kept interested by seeing all of the wildlife. Probably not a trip for younger kids. A good way to see Florida in its natural state.
