Well thought out and fun!
Jeff made the whole trip worthwhile. Not only was he extremely knowledgeable of the Florida ecosystem, but he matched that with a truly amazing personality. He took the time to know everyone by name and made the time to interact with everyone personally. Jeff was very attentive to everyone's needs. We really enjoyed his fun loving humor and non-stop talkative nature. At the same time he made everyone on the tour feel enriched with a newfound knowledge of Florida's plant, animal, and insect life. It was so enjoyable to have an expert guide take us down river. I would not hesitate to take the trip again, but we all agreed that we'd want the next tour with Jeff again. Jeff made this one of the best experiences that we've ever had on a trip to Florida.
My wife and I set out on our first tour recently. Greg was an excellent guide and very knowledgeable of the wildlife as well as the native plant life along the way. He made sure to point out every area of interest to us as we went along. The rates were very reasonable, and included everything right down to bottled water and a light lunch along the shore line of the St. John's River. Looking forward to our next tour in the near future.
Very competent outfit, our guide Jeff is marine biology very knowledgeable about and attentive to group needs, recommend highly.
Jeff was friendly, knowledgable, and helpful. His passion and expertise regarding the surrounding plant and animal life was impressive. The route we were taken on was scenic and full of wildlife making the expedition fun and engaging. I would recommend the wekiva river kayak to anybody looking for a natural adventure.
The tour guide was very informative about the wild life and natural life along the tour. We found him very interesting and learned a lot. I would definitely recommend this tour.
This was my first paddle with Adventures in Florida and what I loved about it was how relaxed it was. There is very little hurry, it is all about taking in the beautiful surroundings and living in that moment. There were some great wildlife sightings and the Wekiva is a unique and beautiful river! I will definitely be doing it again if I can.
My family and I are from NJ and wanted to experience kayaking. I found Adventures in Florida and booked a tour at the Wekiva River. We had a blast! Greg and his son Gator were so friendly, knowledgeable and very safe with all equipment and advice. We had so much fun that we booked the Bioluminescence trip at night. I wish we had these tours near jersey because we had such a wonderful time, met new friends and made awesome memories. Thanks Greg
The Kayak Tour with Adventures in Florida on the Wekiva River was awesome!!! My husband and I had never been kayaking before but were given instructions before we started. We felt very safe. The Wekiva River was beautiful! We saw a Manatee, an alligator and several birds. The experienced kayakers from Greg's Meet Up group on the tour were very nice and helpful and made sure that everyone was safe. I loved that there was an opportunity to swim at a small beach and a wonderful lunch was provided!! Everything about the tour was top notch. I had to cancel one tour and received an immediate refund! Greg is excellent about communicating with us through email. It was an excellent tour and experience. I would recommend it to anyone, from beginner kayaker to expert!
Excellent kayaking experience! Greg was our guide and he was very knowledgeable about the plants and animals we encountered. Look forward to doing it again on my next trip to Florida. Best part of my vacation.
Greg and his crew were super great. We did the 10 mile kayak trip and it was slow paced, we saw a manatee out of season and dozens of birds & alligators. It was fascinating and fun and any age or ability would have enjoyed it. The wekiva was so beautiful and the water crystal clear too! I would highly recommend Adventures in Florida and hope to book another trip with them someday (maybe in Thailand or New Zealand next time!)
Great guide. It was an awesome day and we will definitely book with your company again. Thanks
I had a great time and guide Todd was awesome!
Outstanding guide, Jeff Dubois, who is extremely knowlegdable of all of the wildlife and how everything integrates to form a delicate ecosystem. A true passion for his job and communicating to his guests.
Longer trip than expected because of the size of the group. Also I would not consider crackers, salami and cheese lunch. Otherwise enjoyed the tour.

Trip Was over all fun, the trip did run a little long and we had a large group so i really feel like we didn't get as good a experience as we could have with a smaller group. Also there was a little less wildlife then we thought there would be but we did manage to see a small alligator and one manatee and some birds. Over all i would recommend this trip and the company was very professional.
Our Adventures in Florida guide, Jeff, was knowledgeable, helpful and personable. He knew the waters and took us to the most scenic places. His expertise and enthusiasm helped the group develop cohesion and fostered a spirit of each of us helping the other. The fact that he remembered all of our names was impressive. Will definitely take the trip again!
We spent the day kayaking with our guide, Jeff, and it was a wonderful adventure for the family. We were fortunate to see a wide array of animal species and Jeff and was super informative and provided a great educational experience for our kids. We'd definitely do it again!
An amazing day on the Wekiva river! Jeff was fun, funny, and oh so smart! The details and trivia he has tucked into his head about the area and the flora and fauna makes it obvious he loves the environment. I had forgotten 'lunch' was included - delightful cheese, meat, crackers, fruit. A very memorable experience. I highly recommend Adventures in Florida.
Excellent guide, lovely landscape, sunny experience, very satisfied family
Our tour guide Jeff was fabulous. A very people person with intelligence above and beyond

My wife and I had a great time kayaking on the Wekiva. We saw lots of critters and trip leader Jeff helped us identify them. There were several different kinds of turtles, many birds and a few alligators. Jeff coached us in kayak skills and served a great mid-morning snack. We could not have asked for a better experience.
It was a great adventure to be able to enjoy the scenic Wekiva river with Greg and Todd. Both were very knowledgeable about the area, the river and the flora and fauna. Able to see alligators and herons up close from our Kayaks.
Just a nice day away from the parks and the noise. Great to slow down take in easy and enjoy the countryside.
Great experience, and great guide! My nephew and I both loved it. I look forward to doing another one of the kayak tours soon.
We spent a fabulous morning with Greg, his son Gator and niece Daria paddling on the Wekiva. Greg was really friendly as well as extremely knowledgable. We saw alligators, turtles, catfish and a whole host of different birds! Wish we were here longer so that we could take another one of the trips and we will definitely book in future when back in this area - we are also looking at the trips Greg runs in different countries too as these also look great.
An all round fantastic trip with Greg down the Wekiva river. An education on history of Florida and deep knowledge of the river and its natural inhabitants surpassed all expectations. Very highly rated expedition.
The trip was great. Sean, our guide, was very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. I would recommend this trip to anyone heading to Orlando but wanting to skip the parks and crowds.
The best experience that we've had in Florida this year, we are going to book more trips with them in the future Chad
We enjoyed the relaxed pace of the river and the expertise of our guide, Jeff. Jeff was very personable with a good sense of humour. We were happy to see a good variety of birds and to see alligators and turtles. We didn't realize alligators could move so quickly until we saw that one hydroplane into the water from the riverbank. Greg was waiting for us at the end of our tour and we enjoyed a cool drive back to our car. Awesome experience! Thanks!
위키바강에서의 카이약투어를 했던 날의 날씨가 좋아서 강을 따라 이어지는 경치를 한층 맘껏 즐길 수 있었고, 4시간의 투어가 짧게 느껴질 정도로 훌륭했습니다. 투어를 이끌었던 가이드는 매우 친절했고 자연과 그 지역에 대해 아는 바가 많아서 투어중에 많이 배울 수 있었습니다. 카이약 투어를 생각하고 계신 분에게 적극 권하고 싶습니다.
We had a great paddle on the Wekiva with guide Jeff. Jeff pointed out the local flora and fauna, including a couple sizable gators very near our boats, making the trip exciting and informative. Greg, the owner of the outfit, was equally pleasant. Just a couple great guys and a beautiful piece of nature. If you can relax and enjoy yourself with some time on the river you'll enjoy this immensely. It's the perfect Mickey antidote and a slice of what FLA is really about.
Beautiful river and Greg was very friendly and knowledgeable (too bad we had the three noisy twenty something wildlife repellers along, but you can't choose your tour mates) . Only suggestion would be to make lunch a little more substantial. Will definitely recommend and visit again.
Excellent and patient guide, enjoyed seeing wildlife
It was an awesome experience! Greg was super educated and very nice and cool to hang out with. I would highly recommend this place for a fun vacation or even something to do day to day basis . Absolutely loved it ! Will definitely go back and bring my children this time :))
Much more than we expected. Peaceful and relaxing, and so beautiful. The lunch was advertised as light, but really it was all we could eat and delicious! Bonus: the knowledge of our guide made the trip over the top fun and interesting!
It was a very fun day trip!!
