“kayaking the Rock Springs Run in Central Florida.”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

This is the second year that I have done a tour with this group. Kenny is an excellent guide. Its like kayaking with family. Booking the tour is as easy as it gets. Jenny is quick to follow up with all the info to get you to your site and ease your fears about getting lost. Kenny is very knowledgeable about the history of the area, as well as the birds and animals that habitate the environment. If you want a good tour, Put your money, with Kenny and Jenny.

“Kayaking near Winter Park Florida, 15 May 2014”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

It was a wonderful trip. Kenny has great knowledge about the plants, birds and fish of the area. Directions to get there were excellent. The kayaks were just what we needed for a very relaxing and enjoyable trip. We recommend them highly - from our very first contact with Jenny by email, to our trip with Kenny, they were superb.

“A fabulous day out...WOW”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Right from the start Jenny was a great help in ensuring the trip went as smoothly as possible.
We followed their accurate directions right to the car park where Kenny was already set up awating our arrival.
The trip was a dream ...floating along the Weikava river with an excellent knowledgeable commentary from Kenny throughout. We saw Gators , Turtles , Ospreys swooping to grab fish out of the water etc etc.... My 2 girls ( 13 & 16 ) thoroughly enjoyed the trip as much as we did.
I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys the great outdoors and wants a day away from the normal hussle and bussle....

“Adventure Paddling”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

Let me be the first to coin this phrase. "Adventure Paddling." Kayaking provides the best low impact form of water travel for appreciating nature and its importance. But if you're considering taking a tour you already know this. From the time you plan you're tour with Jenny to the time on the water with Kenny and Randall you are treated to the highest level of service possible. They have a keen understanding of their clients needs and are very aware of their environment so as to make the experience as positive as possible for everyone from kids, beginners and experienced paddlers alike.
The 4-5 hr Wekiva River Tour was perfect for beginner to advanced with so much to see. We encountered many different species of birds, turtles and aligators of different sizes from small babies to a 3 foot aligator sunning. All along Kenny was able to identify and give information about the habitat and ecosystem in an interesting manner. Randal, who also was the trailing kayak was extremely knowledgable about the historic facts of the area. All in all this tour was excellent value or the money and we will not hesitate to recommend them and return for another run perhaps the Silver Springs Tour.
