On our 4-day paddling adventure around southern Georgia, our trip with Jennifer definitely tipped the scales in favor of kayaks (vs canoes) as she shared with us her love, knowledge, and enthusiasm for the art of kayaking. We learned a lot, paddled confidently, saw beautiful things, laughed, and the kids swam. We look forward to getting back on the water with Up the Creek Xpeditions.

My husband and I kayaking with them last week and had a great time. We live up in St Marys. We did Lofton Creek (Yulee, FL- only about 20 minutes away) which is a very easy and relaxing paddle. Jen and Pete are just all around great people! We had a good time just getting to know them as well. Hope to return soon to do the Cumberland Island trip!

Staff friendly, sensitive, entertaining, and expert paddlers insuring a safe and enjoyable trip. My family ranged in age from 9 to 69 and most paddling for the first time, including the youngest. Thanks to Pete and Jen for an experience that ranked next to Universal Studies most popular for the week.

Pete and Jen took care of ALL the details for our weekend trip to the back door of the JAX Zoo. They made sure that every angle was covered and that fun was had by all. We would definitely do it again!!

I have done a trip with up the creek twice, once on crooked river and the other at lofton creek in FL. Both trips were awesome. I had never been kayaking before, and before each trip i was taught all about the kayaks, the tides, what we will see, and how to maneuver in kayak, which made trip more enjoyable and felt more comfortable in boat where i could enjoy trip. Guides are extremely knowledgeable of area waters and wildlife, and kayaking skills. Anybody can go on a trip and feel comfortable, safe and enjoy with guides. The equipment provided by company is high end from boats,paddles, to life vests. They can tailor each persons experience level and expectation of trip to boat and waters. 1st trip was in a tandem boat with another person that had never been kayaking as well, and we both enjoyed trip and felt safe.
