Really fun. It was my second time kayaking and they definitely taught me some new techniques. The instructors were very helpful and friendly. :)

“Teen Kayaking 101 Class : Ages 11-16”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Greg, Dave, and Jacob handled our large group with ease. They were so patient and helpful with some of our brand new teen kayakers. They went over all of the basics: entering and exiting the kayak, steering, paddling, stopping, and most important, safety. I think their favorite part was rolling out of their kayaks, to practice climbing in from deep water. You now have 18 very excited teens and all of their parents, looking forward to many more adventures with you.

Thank You,

“First time kayaking”
Reviewed 21 May 2014 via mobile

My teen daughter and a bunch of her friends took her first kayaking lesson with these guys at the Dinky Dock in Winter Park, FL. They spent about 30 minutes teaching them how to use the paddle, how to move properly so they don't flip, etc. They continued the lesson in the water, and then went for a short paddle along one of the canals. Everyone had a great time and learned a lot.

“Panhandle Paradise - Adventures in Florida”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

I recently spent a week with Greg Pflug and Adventures in Florida paddling rivers in the Pensacola area. The trip was one of Adventures in Florida's lodge trips which included airport pick up, accommodations, kayaks, professional guide and meals.

The accommodations were great. We stayed at Adventures Unlimited which has a mix of camping and cabins. The cabins and campground was very spread out and had trails for walking and a couple of beaches. Greg had the group set up in an old school house made in to very nice rooms. I had a screened in porch with a rocking chair and and a bench swing. The room was very spacious with a microwave, coffemaker and refrig, not that I needed any of those as Greg cooked all the meals which were fantastic.

The pace was great, we had time each morning for coffee, breakfast, and a short walk down to the river. Each day we did a different paddle, sometimes an all day paddle or a couple of half day paddles.

The area had some bad weather the week before and the rivers were high, but Greg worked the schedule so we paddled the rivers based on how safe they were. By the end of the week we were able to paddle all the rivers we planned on. On the day long paddles, we had lunch on the river beaches which Greg provided along with chocolate for dessert. During the paddles we looked at wildlife along the way and stopped to swim at the beaches. The paddles in the area were interesting as they winded along through cedar and pine with sandy banks and some cliffs.

We also spent an afternoon at a Gulf Beach and body surfed the waves or just relaxed. On the last day, we did a zip line on the property which was a hoot.

I have been on many Adventures in Florida vacations over the years and they are always great fun. We always do a lot of paddles, but also get to experience some local culture, history and whatever else the area has to offer. There is also plenty of time for just chilling and relaxing. Greg's 'camp' cooking needs to be experienced, as words can't describe the meals we get on his trips. Being a professional guide, Greg is a wealth of knowledge of the flora, and fauna and Florida history.

I highly recommend Adventures and Florida trips. I have already booked my next one!
