Y’all come back and see us next year 😎 Gary White ★★★★★ We had a wonderful experience and Eric was a helpful, knowledgeable guide. We had originally signed up for the Blue Springs tour but Kayaking Florida asked if we wanted to switch to Silver Springs to have better chances of seeing manatees.

Sylvia Lewandowski ★★★★★ Our Guide Eric was GREATTTTTTT!!! We had a nice time....Response from the ownerThank you Sylvia. It was a pleasure having y’all. 😎 Kelsey & Drew Williams ★★★★★ So much fun! Saw TONS of wildlife, and our guide -Eric- was AWESOME! Got to the park at 8:45 just before tour. Glad they plan it this way- when we left the park after our kayak tour and walk to the Spring, it was absolutely packed to get into the park and walk the boardwalk. Kayaking Florida knows how to plan for a quiet, still morning with wildlife - get in early and enjoy the calm! Great break from amusement parks.Response from the ownerFantastic! Thank you Kelsey! & Drew! Quite is the way we like it! Sondra Kramer ★★★★★ Loved it. Dolphins came up to my kayak!!Response from the ownerThank you Sondra for the great review!

I will be going back soon and recommend them to everyone interested.Response from the ownerThank you Hamid. It was a pleasure to have you. Nancy McKinney ★★★★★ Kayak Florida is the best kayak tour company out there. The equipment was well equipped and very clean and waiting on us when we arrived. Our tour was well planned out and very relaxing and, somehow as if on queue, the manatees showed up and put on a spectacular show. That came right up to our kayaks. The tour guide, Greg, has an abundance of knowledge about wildlife, the ecosystem and history of the area and always has a great story to tell. I would highly recommend this company and will be using them many more times in the future.Response from the ownerThanks so much Nancy! You guys were a lot of fun! Looking forward to seeing you again soon! Matthew Clark ★★★★★ Nikki McKinney ★★★★★ We had an Amazing Manatee tour at Blue Springs state Park with kayak Florida. We saw so many manatees, some coming right up to the kayaks. We saw an eagle, alligator and lots of other birds. Greg snd Matt were great guides. Soooo exciting! 5 stars!!!Response from the ownerThank you for the review Nikki!
