With our 100% clear kayaks you are sure to enjoy a one-of-a-kind experience.
We take you where there is a world of wonder around you, but also, under you!

The see-through kayaks enhance your visibility and will leave you speechless!

Rock Springs
One of the best compliments to our clear kayaks are the crystal clear springs located in right here in Central Florida. 
Take a paddle through Rock Springs in Apopka for a clearly different experience
and an adventure that your friends will certainly envy (if they aren’t paddling with you)!

Paddling Rock Springs is your chance to see lots of wildlife and nature directly below you!

Are you ready to cross this off your bucket list?
We are Florida’s premiere bioluminescent kayak tour company!

Winter Park Chain of Lakes
Undoubtedly one of our most relaxing paddles is in the Winter Park Chain of Lakes which includes our amazing sunset tour.
Be prepared to weave through the scenic Venetian style canals that link the large lakes lined by million dollar homes.

Whichever paddle you choose, be prepared to see lots of wildlife, and if

We had a great time with Alex! The adventure was just our speed (never kayaked before) and we learned a lot about the eco-culture as well. We were happy to have chosen Get up and Go as other kayak tours (much louder and faster) came wizzing by. Thank you for the perfect evening adventure.

Our group of 10, of mixed ages, had a great morning at Rock Springs with Austin S. as our guide. What a really lovely person he is, so friendly and patient. It was lovely and peaceful on the waterways after doing theme parks, we even saw a deer at the waters edge.Thank you Austin for showing us the real Florida �

We stopped along the way and Austin took pictures for us on our phone which was greatly appreciated. I would recommend it to anyone who’s interested

This place is BEAUTIFUL! Austin is great, it was a really nice time. I’m just going to note that this is a very busy waterway. The day we kayaked there were people everywhere all struggling to avoid running into each other. Perhaps it’s less busy in the winter? We went in April. There were certain stretches that were free of people, those made the trip worthwhile.

This was an amazing experience! Our guide Austin S was phenomenal. He made this kayak experience great! Even though my partners and I may have had some issues aka getting stuck on tree branches or running into a tree hahah 😂 he would come back and help us and we never felt like we were being burdens on the group. We learned a lot about the environment and the gorgeous rock springs! This was only my second time kayaking in my life and now I can’t wait to come back and do it again!

My cousins and I went to the Rock Springs 8:30 tour on April 17. Austin was an awesome, patient and helpful guide. The weather was sort of chilly in such early morning, but the water was warmer than the air, which was a good thing. I really enjoyed our company- a group of friendly tourists from England. It was very nice that Austin let us take some breaks along the way as we were paddling against the current. Crystal clear water and the clear kayaks scored! It was so cool that you could see the bottom of the water and plenty of fishes swimming underneath. I would highly recommend this tour to small groups seeking new, fun and personal activities.

Perfect tour! I had only been kayaking once before, but didn't have many problems navigating the route with my friend. Hunter was a great guide and Zozo was so adorable. It was a gorgeous day, we spent plenty of time at the sandbar enjoying the water. Hunter took multiple pictures for us and helped out some of the group when they were struggling. The kayaks were perfect and so cool to use especially when we went back downstream. We didn't feel rushed whatsoever, a perfectly relaxing day. Will definitely be bringing more friends back!

I cannot rave more about how wonderful of an experience I had. Firstly I think I need to frame the situation. My girlfriend and I have been planing this Florida trip for months; unbeknownst to her, I was planning to give her an engagement ring. I had it all planned, I was going to do it on an adventure kayaking tour with Get up and go. But of course I waited till it was about 2weeks from our trip and I reached out with a message to see if I could coordinate with the team to make it happen. Justin the owner, responded almost immediately to my email, and told me THEY WERE BOOKED SOLID for the day I had in mind (our 4year dating anniversary) *cue the heartbreak*. So I put together a back up plan and decided we would go on a hot air ballon instead. (Not my first plan because we are a go couple and this felt a little cheesy, but hey had to be something better than Olive Garden lol).. 24 hrs ahead of time, the hot air balloon company calls and tells me the flight is a no-go due to anticipated weather conditions. *cue the heartbreak again!* this is when I circle back around and pray for a miracle. I reached out to Justin again, only to find there had been a cancellation and a tour was available for my day! Justin was able to help not only arrange a private tour group for myself and my “fiancée”! Penny, our guide was amazing, she took photos of us all along our trip, planned the perfect stopping point along our tour and had the code word ready(“this spot was the bees-knees” get it!? ). Whelp in perfect shape for my luck for this day, my bloodsugar starts to crash about halfway into the paddle. Penny being an amazing guide acts on the fly and sets us up with a turn around that is sooner (you know so I don’t die without getting to propose). At this point all plans are off and this is going to happen one way or the other! I finally get my knee on the ground, of course she says yes, and I can finally share the story of my planning nightmare with my best friend, now fiancé. We all got a good laugh and we were able to make it back to base safe and sound.Sorry for the long winded story, but I had to share; the team really made this experience so personal, and it turned out to be such a beautiful event, one spontaneous moment to the next. Thank you Get Up and Go Kayaking!

Definitely doing this against. Just got back from doing this and the weather was just perfect, water was crystal clear, and enjoying the group who I went with. Got to meet with a blogger who traveled all the way from Europe who went on the tour. Our tour guide was super friendly, laidback and very helpful. I don't remember his name, but he made our experience even better. I liked the location a lot and was able to see few wildlife along the way that was a real treat! The kayaks where crystal clear in the water and you were able to see fish as you went down the river. For someone who is a beginner at kayaking it was a lot of fun and we got to take a few breaks along the way which was very helpful.

What a fantastic end to our vacation! Booked a Rock Springs kayak tour for the final day of our family vacation & we all had a blast! My daughters paddled together & didn’t kill each other, LOL. The scenery was beautiful...challenging at times due to fallen vegetation from the hurricane. Austin was a wonderful guide! He was funny, friendly & engaging with our entire group. It was so nice to spend this time together, kayaking as a family, and we will definitely be back to do the bioluminescent tour!!! Thank you!

We did the afternoon Rock Springs tour with Austin as our guide. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. Austin was friendly, helpful and super relaxed. He was assisted by gorgeous Zozo, the super chill three legged dog. We were able to take our time on the way back, and weren’t rushed or hurried at all.The crystal clear water and the scenery are absolutely beautiful. There was a part we could get out of the kayak and wade in the warm water and take photos. We saw fish, birds, turtles and even a little alligator. The small group size is ideal. The river is pretty tight in parts and there’s other people canoeing and kayaking so anymore and it’d be too crowded.Highly recommend these tours. Would definitely do it again!

I booked our wedding anniversary tours, due to an unforeseen circumstance the night before at his job my husband was not able to go. I was so upset, I tried to contact them and the line kept ring to a voicemail. So I emailed them to see if there was anything we could do? They have a very strict cancellation policy-which I was well aware of, I asked them about a credit or some sort of alternative (being willing to pay more $ etc) and I received a generic form-letter email explaining that they’d sent me a reminder 2 days prior and they would have had to have two people in our place. Needless to say, they have withdrawn the charge for our tours, we didn’t get to even go & we received an insensitive “auto response” from the owner that indicated he didn’t read my email at all and/or had no interest in upselling his company or providing any alternatives/flexibility. 😢

My wife and I took the Rock Springs 2:30 Pm tour on February 22 and our guide was Austin. The weather was warm, about 80 degrees, and mostly sunny, and the water temperature was perfect for wading and swimming, so we couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. Austin is a friendly, kind, and helpful guy and the perfect ambassador for your company. He's also a good kayaking instructor and helped the less experienced paddlers with proper technique and at no time during the tour did we feel like we were being rushed or hurried. We were on the tour with three other couples and Austin engaged everyone and by the end of the tour we were one big happy family. And a big added bonus was Zozo the dog who took the trip with us in Austin's kayak! The scenery on Rock Spring's Run is amazing and once we left Kings Landing we felt like we were miles away from civilization! Thanks for a wonderful afternoon and a great adventure!

I found out about Get Up and Go one night around 3am when I couldn’t sleep and was aimlessly scrolling through Facebook. My friends and I had a trip booked for Florida for about 2 months out at the time so I sent the video to them and they were all on board. We drove 2 hours from where we were staying to go on the tour and it was SO WORTH IT. I am a somewhat experienced kayaker, however my friends are not. Austin, our tour guide, was wonderful and patient with us. He took my one friend in his kayak (there were three of us- two person kayaks) and showed her the ins and outs of kayaking. She still hasn’t stopped talking about how much she learned that day from him. My other friend and I goofed off a lot and we ended up flipping our kayak, but the water was so warm we didn’t even care! I felt so bad because Austin had to climb into the water in his joggers to flip the boat back over but he was totally cool and calm about it and told us not to worry. The sights and the water were amazing, weather was great and we got so many laughs and great photos out of the day. It was the highlight of our vacation and we’ll never forget it. Thanks so much to Austin and Get Up and Go Kayaking for such a wonderful experience!!! We’ll be back!!!

Yesterday we did the Rock Springs tour with Austin. I come to Orlando every year and wanted to try something new this year. I am so glad I came across the Facebook video for get up and go. It was one of the coolest experiences. We already talking about next year trying one of the other tours like the bioluminescent one. Austin was great and extremely helpful and laid back. I would recommend this to anyone.

What a great experience! This is something everyone should do if they are in the area. Great tour guide that allowed space for you to feel like your on your own but will follow along your side you if you need additional help. You won’t find beauty like this in many other places in the world!

We have kayaked before but never in tandem clear kayaks - Fun!!! Austin was relaxed and very accommodating as our guide with instruction when needed to make for a smooth trip. We enjoyed the 10am paddle and mostly had the river to ourselves. Justin worked out our reservation with prompt responses to questions emailed via the contact link. As the name of the company suggests...get up and go kayaking is a must do when in central Florida! Thanks for a great time!

What a beautiful day to be on the water with an amazing group and a fantastic tour guide!

We did the rock springs tour today and it was amazing! It was about 2 1/2 car ride from where we were staying but it was definitely worth the adventure. We are so glad we went. Being from northern Michigan we have tons of lakes and rivers to kayak but this was nothing like anything we get to experience back at home. I’d definitely like to do one of the other tours next time we visit FL.

This was an awesome experience and is even worth a long drive! Our tour guide Hunter was very friendly and knowledgeable. The clear water reflecting the trees is breathtaking, which makes the journey very peaceful and serene. The wild life makes it exciting not knowing what you may see or be able to pet. I'd recommend this adventure to anyone!

My friend and I did the Rock Springs run in December with Justin. It was an awesome day. The water was beautiful. We saw a lot of wild life and the rope swing at the end was fun! Our tour guide was really informative and offered plenty of opportunities to slow down and enjoy the scenery. Definitely worth the trip!

We saw Get Up and Go Kayaking about month before we were heading to Florida and knew we had to do it. We went the week of Thanksgiving, and Justin was so kind and patient while we were trying to set up a time to go. We were able to explore all of Rock Springs, and Hunter was an amazing guide. We even explored a bit further and of course had some fun on the rope swing at the end. It was a beautiful area to see, and I can't wait until they start going to other kayaking sites. We will definitely go kayaking with this company again when we return! Thank you for the fun adventure!

Thanks again for this trip, we will definitely be visiting again if we find ourselves in Orlando.

My husband and I did this Friday. The air was a bit chilly, so the water was warmer than the air. Once we were in the kayak, you could feel the warmth of the water through it and you didn't even notice the chilly air. Austin let my husband where his jacket because Dan didn't bring one and Austin had a long sleeve shirt on. Austin, our guide, and he was great. Our tour was only his second. He was very patient with us and the other couple (who had some difficulties getting past some of the downed tree tops). He gave us plenty of opportunities to rest as we paddled against the current on the way out. The trip was very scenic and serene, even with the hurricane damage that the area sustained. We would definitely do it again.

We had a great time out on the river with Justin. The kayaks are much more comfortable than regular kayaks and had good back support which I like. It was cold so we did not see a lot of wildlife although we did see some turtles and beautiful birds. It was very interesting to see how The river that post hurricane Irma. This was a great activity and I highly recommend it.

Booked this after seeing the advert on Facebook. Took my daughter and wife and had a wonderful time. It took a while to get the hang of it as we hadn’t kayaked a two man boat before- but were soon up to speed. There was plenty to see in the river and the guide we had Hunter was excellent in showing us all the spots. We recommend it to anyone.

Rock Springs Tour today in Kelly Park. Justin had been so accommodating even though we ended up late due to unforeseen circumstances, keeping in contact with us they had everything set up for our group to catch up to our tour guide Penny who had set of with another couple of people prior to our late arrival!We caught up a little way down the springs. The views were amazing and the water was warm and clear which made for an awesome trip. Fun to navigate through the downed trees due to the recent unfortunate hurricane too. All in all a great trip and a hidden gem!Both Justin (Owner) and Penny were incredibly helpful and made us feel welcome the whole time! Also thanks to the other two on our trip who were equally great as we know we held you up a little waiting for us! �100% would recommend the Rock Springs Kayak tour!

Horrible customer service. We originally looked into changing our date due to the fact their location was 3 hours from where we were staying and weather was not looking good for that day, they had one availability, and when we went to cancel our reservation they didn’t answer until almost a day later and charged us the FULL amount.

Justin is a top bloke, delivering a top experience. From the first enquiry, right through to our tour this morning, he's been second to none - this activity is an absolute MUST for any trip to Orlando, and beats going to Sea World and the likes hands down. Thanks for everything Justin - a big thumbs up from your new buddies in Ireland! �

The feeling of paddling in a see-through kayak is so awesome and is different. 坐在透明小船中划舟的感覺實在太棒了,這是個非常不同的經驗。願與大家分享我的感受。On a sunny afternoon last Friday, we joined with friends for the Rock Springs run kayak trip, guided by Justin. While paddling down the stream, we could clearly see swimming fishes and turtles below the kayak, and different kinds of waterfowls on the water. It was so relaxing, we let quiet stream tenderly push us sliding under the shade of big oak trees. Occasionally those alligators resting on the shore may stare at us as if to blame us why we were there...No doubt, this is one of the must visit places in Orlando area. Needless to say, Justin, the tour guide, also the owner of the program, is a very knowledgeable and friendly person. He is a real five stars tour guide.坐在透明小船中划舟的感覺實在太棒了,這是個非常不同的經驗。在一個陽光明媚的下午,好友偕同我们參加透明小船划舟遊溪,兩人一組,由Justin領隊解說。一路上我們可以清楚地看見水中的游鱼,烏龜和不同的水鳥。兩岸景觀美麗讓人感到十分放鬆。在安静的小溪幫我們輕輕推動下,我們順著大橡樹的陰影緩緩滑過,拌著涼風徐徐,以為是活在古人柳暗花明又一村的境地。偶爾會見到在岸邊晒太陽的鱷魚突然翻翻眼瞪著我們,似乎在責怪我們這羣不速之客破壞了如此美好的畫面...不蓋你,這是奥蘭多 Rock Spring 地區必须旅遊的景點之一,請記住必須先預約。導遊Justin,也是經營這個活動的老板,是一個非常有知識和友善的年輕人。他是個如假包換的五星級導遊達人。信不信由你,他也會講幾句中文,因為他大學曾經和北京來的室友學過幾句中文呢!

I even had fun on the rope swing a couple of times.We can't say enough about Justin, the owner and our guide. He was very knowledgeable about the local wildlife and very friendly. He made the trip that much more enjoyable.We will definitely take future guests on this trip. We also hope to try the Bioluminescent trip next year.Thanks again, Justin!

The Bioluminescent tour was absolutely beautiful and much enjoyed being able to see different wildlife such as the comb jellyfish, also having fun catching them. In such a clear night with no light pollution around, being able to look up and see shooting stars and the milky way shining bright; I was able to also paddle and see a galaxy of Bioluminescent below.To my very charismatic tour guide Justin! thank you for an amazing night, was a pleasure meeting you! �

This as a unique experience and gives you a chance to explore Orlando in a totally different way. I recently paddled the winter park experience and it really was worth it. The clear kayaks make it an even more unique experience than it already is. Justin was friendly, easy to get on with and was very patient with everyone. Whether you're new to kayaking, a bit rusty or a pro you're taken care of really well. It was a lovely day out, Justin was a great guide and I would also like mention how excellent Get Up and Go are with their communication and correspondence. I would definitely recommend Get Up and Go and will certainly pay a visit next time I'm in Orlando!

We have been on a personal trip to see manatees today with Get Up and Go Kayaking, after arranging it a few days ago with Justin, we turned up at Haulover Canal. Being in the clear kayaks was fantastic, getting up close to the manatees plus seeing herons, jelly fish, dolphins and other wildlife was great whilst paddling around. The fabulous part of the trip was some of the manatees actually interacted with us, they wanted to be touched, licked the bottom of the kayaks and followed us around. What an amazing adventure and lifetime opportunity! Thank you Justin.

I recently wanted to on a new adventure with my sister so I decided do a bioluminescent tour though neither of us have ever been kayaking. Our tour guide, Justin, was not only patient with our kayaking inexperience, but also extremely kind, and accommodating! We launched with a group of six and he was attentive to everyone's needs. Once my sister and I got the hang of kayaking by ourselves (Justin had to get us help us A LOT in the beginning), it was smooth sailing for the rest of the trip. The clear kayaks really amplified the experience since the water glowed around us and UNDERNEATH us; not to mention the shooting stars in the sky, which were breathtaking! I would highly recommend this amazing company to anyone who is looking a great, new adventure. Thank you Justin for the great experience, you rock!

Bioluminesence is a great experience. They have clear kayaks and that makes a huge difference because you can see more of it though the kayak, not only when you paddle. Justin is also very nice and provided an excellent service. Totally recommended!! Just don't forget the mosquitoes repellent.

Justin is the best! We drove up to Rock Springs tour in his awesome kayaks. What a treat. It is just beautiful up there. Justin is extremely accommodating, patient with the beginner kayakers and knowledgeable of the wildlife and area. We can't wait to go to Merritt Island for the Bio tour at the end of Sept. Thank you again Justin!

We had the best experience with Get Up And Go Kayaking! I can't imagine a bioluminescent tour in anything other than a clear kayak! Being able to see the water under and immediately around the kayak glowing added so much to the experience. And Justin was a great guide/host. Very knowledgeable and easy going. It made for a great birthday outing!

This was an amazing experience....the clear kayaks are comfortable, and easy to maneuver. They also enabled us to see things underneath that we wouldn't have seen with a regular kayak. Justin is super nice and professional. We can't wait to take the bioluminescent tour before the summer ends. Get Up and Go is the ONLY way to go!!!

Justin was a great guide and instructor. My son and I had the Best time. We've been on a few tours before and nothing comes even close to comparing. Plus the clear kayaks are awe inspiring. We WILL be back!

We booked our tour for Rock Springs yesterday morning at 9am. The serenity you feel paddling through the fresh spring water is indescribable- especially on the clear kayaks! You can see right through to the bottom of the water. Our tour guide and owner Justin was absolutely amazing. Not only did he give us an amazing tour, he allowed us to hop out and swim, jump off the rope swing, took pictures for us in the best spots, gave us tons of information on the Springs, and showed us lots of wild life ( deer, turtle, baby alligators, fish, and even some beautiful trees). Once the tour was over, Justin sent us all the amazing footage from his GoPro as well. This tour was one of a kind and a wonderful way to see Florida's beauty. If you are looking for a peaceful, fun, personal tour of the Springs, this is the way to go! We can not wait to book the bioluminescent tour soon. Thanks again Justin! Jenn and Erik Eklund

The bio luminescent night trip was awesome. Justin does a great job with his clear kayaks. It's hard to keep a group together in the daytime much less in the dark of night, wind and current. Watching "fireflies" in the water is a crazy thing that's hard to believe until you've experienced it. Just shaking your hand in the water produces "sparks". We had so much fun. Thanks Justin for the tour.

We rented 3 clear kayaks for the Rock Springs tour! It was a blast! Definitely should put bug spray on before launch and bring it with you. Justin was an awesome guide throughout the tour. Even though we maaaaay have sunk one of our kayaks, he was a trooper and helped us back on. Lol Would definitely re-book for future trips! For a bunch of amateurs, 3 adults and 3 kids, Justin handled our group well! Thank you!

I went on the bioluminescent tour with Justin. I've done this tour before with larger companies and regular kayaks, but let me assure you, a clear kayak (and smaller group) is a FAR superior way to experience this! You may have seen bioluminescence at the beach before, but I promise this is different. The refuge is far from any light pollution, and the bio is so concentrated in this area that it is utter magic. When you disturb a school of fish they dart around, leaving shooting-stars of green sparkles under the water. And unlike regular kayaks, in a clear kayak you can just watch below you and it looks like, in my son's words, the cockpit of a ship going into hyperspace. 😀 Every Floridian should do this at least once. If you get there before sunset you're also likely to see dolphins and manatees. We watched a mating herd of about 7 manatees for about an hour from the boat ramp before the tour began. You don't have to be an experienced kayaker and paddling in the dark is not as weird as it sounds. You can clearly see one another. It's just peaceful and something you will remember for the rest of your life. My kids, who have kayaked in bioluminescence many times, said this was definitely the best version because of the small group and the clear kayaks. Another word about Justin specifically. I made a stupid scheduling mistake. With a larger company it would have been more difficult to fix, or I may have been out of luck entirely and my family (visiting from another state) would have just missed out on this experience. He went beyond what I expected, moving his schedule around VERY last minute and was gracious about it. Thank you Justin!

We took the Rock Springs tour on Sunday 5/21 and had an awesome experience! Justin took us out right on schedule and was very knowledgeable about the area. He was a great instructor during the tricky parts of the trip and very patient with us. He even stored our bags and phones in a dry bag just in case of an accidental tip over. To cap it off, the same evening he emailed me great photos from our adventure!

We just did our Rock Springs run yesterday with Justin, and what an amazing and unique experience that was! We were trying to book it for the 16th because it was going to be my birthday adventure, but it also happened to be Easter so we booked for the following Sunday. I was extremely paranoid that we were going to get rained out, but that never happened. It was occasionally overcast so it provided some good shade while we were paddling against the current. We saw one baby gator and a decent sized turtle, but the minimal amount of wildlife didn't phase us because of the nature around AND beneath us! Justin was extremely patient and very nimble on the kayak. I will say if you ride single, you'll be more prone to spin out because of how these kayaks are designed. I can't wait for the bio luminescent tour!

I have to admit, the tour seriously was worth every second. Couldn't have been happier with how it went! Justin is a really awesome guy and he was patient and kind. Took my gf on the trip and she wouldn't stop talking about it. Actually both of us wouldn't stop talking about it! Beautiful wildlife, clear water, and overall a experience you really never imagined you could get in Orlando. I'd pick six stars but it only goes to 5.

We had an amazing time paddling through Rock Springs with Justin. He was very knowledgeable about the animals we saw and where to find them, plant life and just the area in general. He was very patient with lots of picture taking and we never felt rushed. It was a wonderful adventure and incredible way to experience such a beautiful area. So much would have been missed had we not had the clear kayaks.

After months of trying to plan a trip down to Apopka to go clear kayaking with Get Up and Go Kayaking, I finally made it down this Sunday. The experience exceeded my expectations. Rock Springs run was beautiful, and our trip was fantastic! Justin was so nice and helpful. I am used to kayaking solo in a much heavier kayak, so kayaking tandem in a clear one was a bit tricky at first. Justin patiently coached us along, and helped us navigate the trickier areas. I highly recommend Get Up and Go!

We did the Rock Springs tour and absolutely LOVED it! Justin was an incredible guide and very easy going which made it feel like you were out with a bunch of friends! The kayaks are spectacular! If you're a newbie they can be a little tricky but Justin gives awesome advice on how to paddle correctly! I am looking forward to coming back and doing more tours!

Justin took a friend and I out on a tour this past week and it was AMAZING to say the least. I've went bioluminescent kayaking last year with a different company and this was a completely different experience. With Get Up and Go Kayaking's kayaks being completely clear, it looks like you're paddling on top of a galaxy of stars. You see sparkles of what looks like glitter everywhere UNDERNEATH you. My friend and I were in awe. We were also joined by a dolphin which was really neat! If you're thinking about doing a tour, I would definitely recommend going with Get Up and Go Kayaking! The 5 star experience was more than worth it.
