We really liked our guide Jeff. He was very informative. We stayed out 3 hours and it was the right amount of time. Loved seeing the manatees, gators and turtles. Would defiantly recommend this tour to other people.

My son and I were looking for something outside of the Orlando theme parks. We both enjoy kayaking, so we searched for a good kayak tour and found this one. It is a 3 hour kayak in Blue Spring State Park, which is an hour and a half drive from Orlando. We thought we'd give it a shot. From the moment we got to the ramp in the park to the time we finished, this was 5 stars.Jeff, our guide, was fabulous. His knowledge of not just the animals, reptiles and birds, but the area and the "ecosystem", was remarkable. Because it was just two kayaks, I think we got a little special trip. But we saw everything. And all of it up close. It was truly a wonderful morning. We'd love to join you again on our next visit. Thank you.
