We found A Day Away through a link off of the Kennedy Space Center website when planning our February trip to Central Florida. Their rates were extremely reasonable, but we found that none of their offered trips included all that we wanted - we are avid paddlers & wanted to see it all! I contacted Mike, the owner, and he offered us a custom trip, including a tour guide, and all our gear for less than two separate trips would have cost us. Our trip was amazing!!! Our guide, Dee, was very passionate and knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife, and customized our trip as we went to give us the experience we wanted. For everyone, from beginners to advanced, A Day Away will give you the unforgettable experience you are looking for in the waterways of Florida. We highly recommend them! PS: The after-dark bio-luminescent tour was truly the final touch! Not all the kayaking outfitters in the area can offer this - it requires a special permit to be in this NASA-restricted area after dark. If you enjoy getting into nature, it's definitely a DON'T MISS!
