“We rent kayaks from here often. The process is quick and easy and the people in the shop as well as on the dock are pleasant and very helpful!! What a fun way to get some exercise, fresh air, and to enjoy the Indian River !! “

Suzanne Chesser

“Great boat tour,  family friendly and beautiful. Our guide was awesome and answered all of our questions and was very familiar with the area.”

Trent Stepp

“Such a wonderful experience!! Kyle, our captain, was so knowledgeable of the area & helped make such a fun time for us out on the water. Would 100% recommend!”

Paige Edgin

“Since my wife and I enjoy kayaking but don’t know the area, we decided to go on a guided tour. The guide was very knowledgeable about the wildlife and knew the right places to look and find the baby shark and young manatee! She made the experience awesome and we would definitely do this again next time we are in the area!!! Thanks”

“Chris was a very personable and knowledgeable guide. It was a cool rainy day. A dolphin made an appearance for a photo. It was a nice way to get to know the area. The co-Captain, Mildred, a golden retriever was a friendly mate.”

Douglas Bell

“We had a great time kayaking today! Made reservations online and walked right in and to the docks. The equipment was all ready for us and in great shape. Chris, on the dock, has a great sense of humor. We will be back!”
