The guide was very responsive in keeping in touch with us throughout the course of the day making sure we knew they were running a bit late. She was very knowledgeable about the experience and made sure we had a great experience.
My fiancé hasn’t stopped talking about it. It was one of the most rememberable experience she’s had in the USA thank you very much
The experience exceeded our expectations. This was our first outing of this type and we all really enjoyed the evening. Thank you for offering this great adventure!
The experience was amazing and not too taxing for us out of shape participants.
This was definitely an awesome experience! The bioluminescent on the fish was my favorite! And just kayaking at night was a beautiful experience!
Beautiful evening, actually had a private tour with Jen. Nice kayaks, very comfortable for my back! Amazing what Mother Nature is doing here! We had been trying to get out the last 2 evening and were stopped due to weather. Jen runs operations in Ocala during the day, then does this in the evening in Titusville, around a 90 minute to 2 hour drive. Many operators would have cancelled. Thanks Jen, you made our evening!

The Bioluminessance was something we've never seen before and hope to experience again. It was amazing.
A spiritual, almost magical experience. Can't wait to go again.
We had a superb time! Jen was an incredible guide, who modified the adventure according to whatever we would like to do. The bioluminescence is real and beyond expectations! Paddling in the water with this phenomena was like a Harry Potter dream
The location was easy to find and all the kayaks were in great shape. We had an amazing time playing and paddling around in the bioluminescent water! Really fun!
It was a little misleading, thought we would have more time on the water but overall very pleased.
Jen and Nathan were awesome. We saw glowing jellies and plankton light up in the water like clouds of magic. Our group was small and personal, kayaking at night with the stars was incredibly relaxing and beautiful. Jen was so knowledgeable and a pleasure to adventure with throughout the trip! I've already passed along the booking info to friends so they can go!
Jen was an awesome guide; very friendly and knowledgeable. She made sure that everyone was engaged and having a good time.
The tour was great, Jen really made sure we all got to see everything there was to see...and there was a LOT to see! Dolphins, manatees, comb jellies, and of course the glow of the plankton. It was a pretty magical experience.
Jen did such a good job of giving us a fun experience, even though the moon was bright. We saw glowing jellyfish and a gorgeous sunset.
We loved this tour because it was very personalized and intimate. I fell in love with nature all over again! Jen was also very knowledgeable and so friendly!
The entire experience was great and Jen is a wonderful guide. We look forward to other Sunny South adventures in the future!!
Jen, our guide, was very nice, friendly, and knowledgeable. Everything was perfectly planned including directions and other helpful information. I felt safe throughout the trip. It was a lot of fun!! Highly recommend!!
The owner was very nice, equipment was in good order. We took the shuttle and the driver continued to check and respond to her phone. We were able to get close to manatees and dolphins. We did get to see some of the jelly fish and plankton, and even pick them up, but we were a little disappointed on the number of them in the water. We know its hard to predict and that the tour has no control over this factor.
The tour was fantastic although the directions to the boat ramp could've been better. With the bridge being put it created quite the detour for us. Other then that everything was excellent
The plankton were hardly able to be seen. Nothing like the advertising. Guides were late. On the plus side the guides were nice and helpful. And we did see some Dolphins.
Very relaxing and fun. Jen was great at communicating when needed but overall allowed us to enjoy the beauty of the tour.
