Loved It

This turned out to be a better experience then we had expected! Our guide was knowledgeable, informative and entertaining. The river was beautiful and the wildlife was nice to see. We were able to walk up a small stream and swim in the fresh spring water. Make sure you have a change of clothes once you get back to shore!

Great Adventure

Loved this! There is so much beauty to see, it is hard to know where to look. Up, and even down, and yes, I said down, since you can see through your kayak, there is always beauty to behold. Our tour guide was great too. I highly recommend taking this tour so you may witness the stunning beauty of this river and the wildlife up close.

A Must Do!

We did this on our girl's trip to Florida and it was absolutely wonderful! Our guide was friendly and super knowledgeable about the area and the local wildlife. Our favorite part was getting out of the boat and walking along the shallow path with the sand. The clear boat made the experience absolutely top-notch! This activity is a must do!
