We took the TG day trip at Lofton Creek as a family. Wondering trip. The short/ gentle rain shower during the end of the trip added to the adventure. This was my daughter and I second trip with Pete. We introduced dad to kayaking today...More

My husband and I went on a morning tour with Pete in downtown Jacksonville. He was a great guide and the scenery was fantastic. Watching the dolphins swim, play, jump, and splash along side us was a great bonus. We highly recommend this tour!More

I've never seen anybody with the kind of kayaking expertise and people skills as Jennifer and Pete. I've paddled with lots of kayakers, but these two are a great team. They were fully prepared, they cared about our safety, and they're both super nice folks....More

Best paddle ever!!! Great for large groups that want to be together...especially if there is anyone that cannot paddle and just wants to ride. Pete and Jen provided an exciting time and they are very well-versed in water safety. They also provided snacks and drinks...More

Loved it! Saw several baby gators and turtles sunbathing on tree limbs submerged in water. We met our pleasant guide who had our kayaks in Yulee just north of JAX. Waterway was nicely shaded making for a cooler outing.

Winter is by far my favorite time of the year to paddle around here. We have occasional days where it's chilly (40's or 50's) and then it will be sunny and 70-degrees for several days. Kayaks are always fun; and, the giant... More
