“Great Kayaking Tour”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

We did the Lofton Creek tour and had a great time. This was my wife and I's first time kayaking and they made us feel very comfortable with the kayaks. They did a great job of helping us figure out how to control the kayak. The scenery was beautiful and I would highly recommend this.

“Perfect Lofton Creek Paddle!”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

The whole family went on the 9am Lofton Creek kayak trip and it was perfect! Perfect length and experience level for a family of four with two teenagers (13 year old girl and 15 year old boy). Everyone had a great time, and it was an awesome bonding experience. Mark, our guide, was a very patience teacher as none of us had kayaked before. Trust me, this is something anyone can pick up in the first 5 minutes. Mark was also very knowledgeable about the river and had great stories. This is a MUST DO! trip. We will definitely be doing this again next time we are back at Amelia Island.

“enjoyable 2 hrs”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Went on a 9 AM excursion on Lofton Creek
Very helpful and patient phone call to set up
Staff on time at put in point
Were able to go at our own pace and still meet other kayakers and get some info about the area
Guides engaged the group and pictures posted quickly online
Would recommend them and suggest a morning paddle---didn't get too hot and the 2 hr excursion was about right

“Lofton Creek Kayak Trip”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

We had a great time. They provided all of the equipment needed for our adventure, even a bottle of water. Our guide did a great job of explaining how to steer. He even took photos of everyone and posted online for us. We did the 2 hour Lofton Creek paddle and would definitely recommend.

“Absolutely loved the trip out on the water!”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

My friend and I decided to choose Amelia Island Kayaking for an early morning trip up Lofton Creek and absolutely loved it. The scenery was beautiful and restful and Mark and Dennis (the tour guides) couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. Both of us had been in a kayak before but neither of us would describe ourselves as 'experienced'; whatever your ability you should find this an easy and relaxing paddle. Go for it and book your paddle, you won't regret it!
