Our Happy Customers

Michele C.
Great Equipment and Helpful Staff

We rented 3 kayaks for 2 hours to see the manatees. We had an outstanding time with an accommodating staff as well as excellent equipment. The laminated maps clipped to the kayaks were so helpful, and the facilities for the rental were great! Well worth the time and money! The manatees were amazing!

Kathy R.
Great Experience!!

Great experience! We arrived, they brought us right in to watch the video and right out the door for a shuttle drive to the launching spot. Launching spot was a beach and was fairly easy in and out of kayak. Quick to pick us up as well and we were on our way. Kayaks were nice as well and not at all tippy. We saw so many manatee in the canals near Three Sister Spring - we went to hidden springs and others on the map but no luck - it was also a little rougher in the open waters getting there. Next time we will stick with the canals.

A Beautiful Day at a Beautiful Place.

We were preparing to launch our kayaks & were assisted by Josh. He was assisting his clients, then he turned to help us. Thanks Josh! To our surprise he also helped us on our way out. Would recommend this business... they care!
