Reviewed 15 August 2014

It made our vacation!! While kayaking we saw dolphins up close. The paddleboards were a lot of fun too. Lighthouse water sports employees were very helpful, and taught us how to use the paddleboards when dropping them off. Thank you for everything!!!

“Fascinating and relaxing blackwater kayak tour”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Our whole family loved this! Jeff was a superb guide - friendly, flexible, and very knowledgeable about both the plants and animals we saw. He also shared lots of interesting history of the area. The pace was comfortable for everyone in our group, neither too fast nor too slow. While we had unusually high water, that didn't detract from the trip at all and we hope to come back another time; it will be interesting to see the area under different conditions. Highly recommended!

“Great trip back in time!”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Trip was beautiful, relaxing, and educational...exactly what we expected and more. My 10 year old daughter loved it as well...great information to complement 5th grade science (ecosystems) and social studies (referenced the Italian explorer who mapped the river...and who was discussed in her social studies last week). I would like to bring my husband and teenage son next time!

“Kayak Trip back to primitive time”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Jeff was very knowledgable and interesting. My group of seven family members enjoyed seeing the wildlife and plants in the 2 Hr Blackwater Cypress Kayak Tour. The high water at the time of our tour caused the environment to be very different from the same tour 10 years ago. We will definitely do it again and want to try it at different times of the year. I highly recommend it!
