The kayak trip was exhausting, yet very fun (o am not much of a kayaker and am not a super fit person). The absolute best part was the scenery and wildlife! It took us (double kayak) about 3 hours to make it down the river, with a 20 minute stop for lunch and a pretty leisurely pace. We saw many fish and turtles, a couple gators, and the best part was seeing the gigantic manatees toward the end of the river. I would definitely do this again!
