“Great Experience”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

Five of us booked this river trip through Rainbow River Kayak Adventures on Memorial Day weekend... we ranged in age from 11 to 78 and we all had an incredible time. This company was professional from initial phone inquiry and booking to our drop-off and pick up. Really great guys to deal with, clean and air-conditioned vans for the transfers. They made sure we had the right equipment for our needs. It was a popular day for the river but it never felt crowded. Gorgeous water, beautiful cypress-lined riverbanks and the occassional private home along the route. We look forward to doing this one again!

“Good people. gpood value.”
Reviewed 17 January 2013

The price is cheap. You rent a kayak or canoe. You can either paddle upstream and then go back down, or you can be dropped off upstream and float down. The river is clear. Lots of traffic, but very courteous people. Much of the river flows through a large park, and the scenery is good.

Afterwards, grab a bite to eat at a nice little bar and grill on the river.

“Amazing river experience, amazing owners!”
Reviewed 7 February 2012

We went Kayaking New Years Day and what a wonderful way to ring in the new year! It was a perfect day out, the river was so beautiful and Amber and Chris couldn't of made our experience any more pleasant! Definitely wish we would have stayed longer, but we will be back :)

“Beautiful kayak trip on the Rainbow River”
Reviewed 7 December 2011

The Rainbow River is a very beautiful river. The water is so clear that it looks like you can reach the bottom. I tried reaching the bottom with the kayak paddle and the water is deeper that that. I saw lots of birds, painted turtles and one otter.You paddle right through the backyards of a lot of very beautiful homes on the river. Chris took me to the launch and picked me up later at the take out point. The only thing that would make this trip better is if it were longer.

Heard plenty about the Rainbow River before but had never been. With the great weather lately we decided to make a family trip up from Tampa and bring the youngsters (5 and 7). There were several different kayak rental companies in town to choose from- but after doing some research and being recommended by friends, we went with Rainbow River Kayak Adventures. WHAT A GREAT CHOICE IT WAS! Several different kayak models to choose from meant we all got what we wanted! My 7yr old son and I paddled our own kayaks while my wife and 5yr old son enjoyed the day in a tandem. The convenient shuttle service and friendly staff were the icing on the cake. Miss Amber is quite a joy! We will absolutely be using them again for future adventures.
