Staff were VERY attentive, equipment all in great shape, and the river was beautiful! We saw many manatee in the "hospital bowl" half a mile up stream from the shack! There were several sand bar areas to stop and rest as we paddled upstream. Thank you for a wonderful experience!!

great place to get in and explore the beautiful spring! I was a bit nervous just putting our name in to reserve, but when we got there before our scheduled time, they had us down and enabled us to get in early. Everyone loved and commented on the kayak I was given. It was a beautiful color. I was surprised as how many people said something about it. Also a plus is they are pet friendly!

This company is easy to access, right on the river, has a bathroom, gift shop and parking. Everyone was very friendly and the process was simple. We rented 4 single kayaks for the day and had a great time. We didn't see any manatee but that just gives us a reason to return!

Best kayak trip!!! I just happen to discover The Kayak Shack online after booking a trip to Florida. It’s been the highlight of our trip. We saw so many manatees and my kids were so happy. There’s a cool ice cream shack on the water. It’s so easy to navigate where you want to go. The water is gorgeous. The staff were amazing. They were helpful and kind and friendly. I will make sure to visit this place again. Best kayak trip ever.

Rented a canoe on a whim. I never canoed or Kayak and boy did I have fun. My poor hubby had to do most of the paddling. It was so much fun and the people at Kayak Shack was the best.
