My tour guide was both enthusiastic and knowledgeable about all things Econlockhatchee! The tour length was the right length, the amount of information shared was perfect and the setting was phenomenal. I highly recommend this tour for others. I am looking forward to my next visit to Florida to go on either another tour or the same one with some family members.
The kayaking tour with Florida Adventures is by far the most affordable and the most enjoyable event I experienced on my vacation. If you are looking to take a break from Disney or Universal and find out what central Florida is really like, then this is the place! Greg, the owner, was very accommodating and provided excellent kayaking equipment. Our tour guide, Jeff, is a marine biologist graduate and was very passionate about the wildlife on the river. He told us interesting facts and histories behind every tree, insect, fish and reptile we encountered. Be ready to see anything, from the giant gar fish splashing beside your kayak to the wild alligator sunbathing on the bank! The kayaking tour we went on was for 5 hours cruising with the current, and with lunch provided it was the most relaxing part of my vacation. 10/10 would recommend!
The river was beautiful! Quiet and so many twists and turns. We saw quite a bit of wildlife but mostly we saw some amazing birds! This is a relaxed kayaking experience, hassle free and down to earth. I highly recommend it!
Too much waiting in the beginning. We could have slept another hour and arrived at 10:00. Our guide was super knowledgeable- Very nice! It was nice - just seems a little pricey for what it is.
We had the most absolute BEST time EVER with Jeff and Greg ~
The guide was very knowledgeable It was a beautiful serene paddle with lots of alligators and birds
