So Worth It

Such an amazing experience! So relaxing to get out of the “busy vacation rush” and go on this trip. It 100% exceeded my expectations. The water was absolutely gorgeous and we saw a lot of wild life! At least 15 monkeys, tons of turtles and fish. The guide was so kind and knowledgeable. The tours are small so you don’t feel crammed together or in anyone’s space. It’s very affordable and I felt like I was in a tropical country with silver sands and blue waters- so it’s so worth it.

Truly Magical

Sam was our tour guide and he was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. He made our tour fun and interesting. We went on the morning tour and it was the best time to go. There was only one other kayaker with us and the setting was peaceful and serene. We saw many animals including monkeys, alligators, turtles, and many different species of birds!! The tour was very relaxing and tranquil. We really enjoyed it! I definitely would recommend the early morning tour!

A Must-Do

I highly recommend this tour if you are interested in Wildlife and want to take a few hours relaxing on the water. Our tour guide he was amazing- such a lovely chilled out guy, very friendly, obviously loved his job and was very knowledgeable. He took a large group out in the clear kayaks we felt safe the whole time. The ride was not strenuous and the equipment was very easy to use. I would most definitely do this again the next time I am in Florida!

The Best

When everyone passing you in canoes, kayaks, and on paddle boats says "oh man, a clear kayak, that would be the way to do this", you know you're doing it right! Silver Springs is absolutely beautiful and having a clear kayak allows you to take it all in. The team at Get Up And Go Kayaking is professional, timely, and patient. Our guide shared the history of the area, did an excellent job of pointing out the wildlife. We would definitely recommend Get Up And Go Kayaking!

Loved It

This was so beautiful & relaxing! We saw gators, lots of turtles and various birds and we learned a lot about the wildlife. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the springs. I would definitely recommend this activity for both local Floridians and for visitors. If you love the outdoors, you'll enjoy this. We had never kayaked this river before. but now this is something we'll plan to do whenever we have out-of-town visitors! Highly recommend to anyone!
