Real out there in the wildlife kind of experience within driving distance and a city. It was fun and the Gide was informative. Be prepared for nature
So Fun!

It was so fun! We had Alex as a tour guide and he made sure to keep the group together and teach us all about the animals and foliage around. He was very knowledgeable and even brought out the office snake so we could see it/ hold it.

Our experience was with Ray, our guide. We had so much fun with him, saw George and Magz. Ray was so patient and outgoing!
Best Kayaking in Florida!

This tour was amazing! We saw alligators, turtles, birds, and snakes. Our guide provided tons of information and was funny. This tour beat my expectations and will be doing it again if I’m ever in Florida!!
A million miles enjoyable :)

From beginning to end, our tour was fantastic. Our guide, Alex, was knowledgeable and skilled. During the tour, it felt like we were a million miles away from the mega tourist center of Orlando. It was so enjoyable.

Staff was super nice, accommodating & knowledgeable. I enjoyed every minute. Although it was a 2 hour tour it seemed a lot less. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to just enjoy nature and be away from the hustle and bustle of their day-to-day city life.
Calming and informative

My kids and I enjoyed kayaking together as a family in a very peaceful and interesting area. The guide was very informative about the scenery, animals and general area. Loved the cypress trees. I have two teens and a nine year old who loved the adventure.
Hella fun !

Great Experience
, Jul 2021
It was a great experience with our 14 and 9 year old grandchildren. Our guides, Joshua and Ray, made it easy and fun for all of us. We went tandem with the kids. No phones for a couple of hours! The kids learned a lot about Florida history and nature.
Just do it. You won’t regret it.

This is a must do when you come to Kissimmee. My wife and I have never been kayaking, but our tour guide, Joshua, insured that we felt safe and had fun. Our entire group was brand new to kayaking. We all were able to paddle through the moderately challenging current and enjoy all that the Cypress Forest had to offer. We saw a lot of wild life, heard some great history and engaged in great conversation while paddling through this beautiful setting.
