Awesome kayaking experience! Super fun, friendly staff, and great service. We were even given the kayaks for a much longer period of time than we had booked. Drop off service to our lodge. So convenient and a great price. Thank you!

This was a spectacular experience. Even though it was late in the season to find manatees our guides quickly located several areas, one of which had a young one nursing his mother. The crew was so helpful and informative.
