Our kayaking trip along the Chassahowitzka was a day to remember. Seven Sisters Springs, The Crack. Wish we could have done another day. Carla, the owner of Kayak Karavan, is a treasure! She knows so much about the pristine waterways of Florida and, even better, seems to love what she does. A great ambassador for the "Nature Coast." Highly recommended.... More

Peace serenity and tranquility! As soon as you launch your kayak all worries disappear, the view the nature is breathtaking. I get amazing pics of birds, turtles and fish if your get to visit when the manatee are around that is the true treat. If you would like to take a swim you can do that, or just enjoy your... More

I always wanted a very special kayak adventure and knew that Florida was the only place that would deliver. Before we started kayaking, Carla asked questions as to what we were looking for in order to give us the best experience. Boy, did she deliver! Knowledgeable in both nature and the history of the region, she made our kayak trip... More

Carla was great and very accommodating, even though we were a bit late showing up that morning. It was a cold day, and Carla gave us Indian blankets to wrap around our laps for warmth. I'd never done that in a kayak and it helped a lot. The scenery is like you are in the middle of the Amazon. The... More

Stayed at the Chaz Hotel and was introduced to Karla at Kayak Karavan. She was great. Got me set up with a kayak and gave me lots of good info on the river. Spent about 6 hours exploring. Would love to do it again in the fall (way too hot in the summer) and when it's less crowded (scallop season/weekend).... More

With a little luck we found this gem of an outfit!! Called the evening before and was able to get enough kayaks for our family outing. Karla and Norm were full of information and very helpful for some first timers. If you are looking for a personal touch and reasonable rates, then you need give Kayak Karavan a try! The... More

We rented a couple kayaks for a week from these guys and had an excellent time on the river. Norm was great sharing all the local info with us and we were lucky enough to see Rachel the resident manatee and her pup. If you're staying close by, rent your boats for multiple days so you can keep them overnight... More

We had an amazing day on the Chassahowitzka River, while experiencing a pure, natural Florida river as compared to the more touristy venues of the Crystal. Renting from Norm was super easy and he was of great help. Where he launches you from is a perfect starting point as 7 sisters spring is only a few hundred yards down the... More
