My first kayak trip was with Susan and George and it was fantastic. They make everything relaxed and provide so much information about the animal life. It was the best 2 hours I have spent in a long time. I highly recommend this tour.

Susan and George made the difference on this tour. It was more like being on the water with friends whoknow the area and kayaking. Will be back.

We took the full moon trip and it was great. Previously we took a trip out of shell island and had porpoises swimming right underneath us. Susan and George know the area as well as anyone and thus not only do you get exercise you also learn a great deal about the estuary.

I was asked to join a group of friends to go on this tour. It was such a gorgeous day. Susan and George were perfect "hosts", informing us of our surroundings and made it a great, relaxing trip. I have another booked to take my Aunt and Uncle for the experience! Thank you!

We had a wonderful kayak tour with Susan and George for the Isle of Capri tour. It was very informative and relaxing at the same time. Lots of questions answered and a beautiful day. Susan and George are a wealth of information and their excitement for nature is contageous. We would highly recommend.

Skip the shopping. Spend the day exploring the beauty of Florida. Susan and George will fit the trip to match your skills. We had a perfect day, bright sunshine, light wind. Saw Eagles, Osprey, and frolicking dolphins. Another great trip.

We had a wonderful time watching the sun set and seeing huge flocks of birds all settle in for the night on their rookery island. Susan and George enjoy sharing their extensive knowledge of the area and love of the wildlife. Highly recommended.

Amazing morning, the weather was great as the fog has just cleared and Susan lead us on a very informative tour through the mangroves all the way to our beach destination. On route we saw many dolphins, birds and for the first time while kayaking...... manatees. Once on the beach Susan pointed out so many crabs, birds, shells and creatures... More
