Amazing unique experience

Ashley was amazing and very helpful! Super knowledgeable about the surroundings! It is definitely a workout at 1st but well worth it! Would definitely come back!!
icon Response from Host , Aug 2022
Thank you for your kind words about Ashley. She's the. best!! The first half of the tour can definitely be a work out which is why we take a few stops along the way to let everyone break. We like to think the float down makes it all worth it ;) We can't wait to see you next time!

A glass bottom Kayak trip through crystal clear, blue waters, mix in a bit of wildlife, lush, semi-tropical scenery and a dip in the cool springs...this was one of the most uniquely satisfying tours in Florida!

Fun tour with cool stops, but kayaks were double not single like the pictures
Boris_N
, Jul 2022
Overall, we had a fun experience on this tour. Our tour guide, Ashley, was good and we made some stops along the way in really cool spots. While paddling up river and against a current going in different directions got a bit frustrating at times, the overall experience is good. Also, the river is pretty narrow and there were A LOT of other kayaks, which created traffic jams and lots of bumps in tight turns. Finally, based on the pictures and lack of details in the description, I expected to have single kayaks. Instead, we had double kayaks, which made it harder to remain synchronous and moving forward in a straight line.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
We're so pleased to hear you had a good time exploring with Ashley. She's awesome!! The first half of our tour we do paddle against the flow of the water which is why we take a few stops along the way to let everyone take breaks, swim, and take photos! The second half is a float back down. Our experience page does note that all of our kayaks are tandem and if you have an odd number in your party, and we have the availability, we can accommodate solo kayaks. We apologize for any water traffic you encountered!! There are other companies that launch at this waterway and we try our best to help with this by only taking out up to 10 guests per tour (5 tandem kayaks.) We appreciate the feedback and hope to see you again in the future!

Amazing! Jeremy was our tour guide and he was very informative about the environment and extremely helpful & patient when it came to our kayaking skills! The landscape was beautiful and our guide definitely made the experience even better. Fun activity for couples and the “couples therapy” we needed.

My boyfriend and I traveled from Charlotte for a week trip in Orlando. So glad I found this! We loved it. Jimmy was a great guide and conversationalists. There were plenty of chances to take breaks and get in the water and swim. It wasn’t rushed at all, time for pictures and everything. Highly recommend!
