Awesome kayaking experience! Super fun, friendly staff, and great service. We were even given the kayaks for a much longer period of time than we had booked. Drop off service to our lodge. So convenient and a great price. Thank you!

This was a spectacular experience. Even though it was late in the season to find manatees our guides quickly located several areas, one of which had a young one nursing his mother. The crew was so helpful and informative.

This was a 2-hour trip in the waters of Crystal River and King's Bay. Our guide (Capt Daylon) was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Even though it was not peak season to see manatees, Daylon knew where to look, and we saw quite a few of them.
