“Uma experiência incrível”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

Devo confessar que eu tinha algum receio em andar de caiaque, primeiro, porque pensava que poderia cair na água, e também pela possibilidade de me deparar com jacarés ou ariranhas. Esta primeira impressão foi logo desfeita. Andar de caiaque foi uma ótima experiência. Estou até pensando em comprar um. Fui com minha mãe e irmã e todos curtimos muito. Os guias, Kenny e Randall são muito atenciosos e o caiaque é muito seguro e fácil de guiar - mesmo nós não tendo nenhuma experiência prévia. A vista é maravilhosa e o passeio é extremamente relaxante. Recomendo muito!

What a blast.....we enjoyed the kayak trip very was so much more than we expected and I can’t think of one thing that we would change. We saw alligators, many different kinds of birds and the biggest turtle I have ever seen. The spring fed river is beautiful and peaceful and clean. It was an easy trip for us. We appreciated Jen’s friendliness in answering all our questions about the trip when making reservations and then quickly following up with email information & directions. Then the day before the trip she called to confirm and to ensure that we had no more questions. And we enjoyed and appreciated the knowledge that Kenny shared with us about the river and all the wildlife. He is like a 'walking book' that is fun to read. He is most professional and easy to know. The kayaks were clean and in good order.

Hi Jen and Kenny
We spent the most wonderful morning paddling with Kenny through a magic world!
These hours were for sure the highlight of our vacation. And how lucky we were with the weather!!
Kenny was so patient and friendly and knew everything about the wildlife of the Wekiva River and this beautiful area. It was interesting and fun to be with him.
I truly hope to return one day for this or another birding trip.
