When the morning came that we had our tour scheduled for, there was a Lake Wind Warning beginning at noon but it was already very windy. We called ahead to see what the weather was and owner told us if we waited until 11 the weather would be better. So we drove the hour there, paid the fee (which was expensive) and got to our kayaks. The bay was very choppy as it was quite windy. About an hour into our tour, our guide got a phone call from the owner claiming the wind had just started and he was going to bring the pontoon boat to pick us up. We ended up getting a tour of the canals which had expensive homes lining them and did not see any manatees or dolphins and did not get to go around the 1000 Islands. Unfortunately, we felt the owner just wanted his money since he offered nothing in return for our shortened tour.

I spent the day at Wildlife Waterdports. I did a guided Kayak tour and our guide Kyle was extremely knowledgable about the area and the wild life. The manager Dave was extremely nice and was very helpful the entire time. I would recommend this place to anyone vacationing in the Cocoa Beach area. The location was amazing and we saw several dolphins and manatees. Wildlife Watersports made my vacation perfect.

Thank Kyle V

Worst money ever spent. Knowingly gave me a leaking kayak which did not help when we had to cross high winds. Even being an experienced kayaker this sucked. The trip was to view dolphins and manatees how you do this through water the color of dark dirt I am not sure. Instead for 2 hours we looked at people million dollar homes. Find another charter and stay away from this one.

Dave and his crew were so nice and helpful. Four of us rented paddle boards for a half day. Paddle boarding among the mangroves near Wildlife Watersports made for an awesome day. We stopped for 15 minutes to watch a school of dolphins feeding. The area is beautiful and quiet and we could not have had a better day.

We booked a shore excursion from Grandeur of the Seas cruise ship advertised as 'Electric Eco Boat Tour'. A bus picked us up by the pier in Port Canaveral and delivered us here. Each couple got their own 2-person Craigcat and followed a leader on a paddleboard down the Banana River in search of dolphins, manatees and other water life. While we didn't see anything but pelicans and other water birds we had a great time. It was fun to be out on the river driving your own boat. Very low-key and relaxing. The owner of the business - Dave - was very friendly and accommodating and explained things very well. You can't really hear anything your guide is saying. You just follow where he goes down the river. I would recommend this activity.
