My wife and I along with my nephew and his girlfriend enjoyed a kayak tour of the St Mary's Harbor on December 27th, 2016. It was very foggy that day with about 10 feet of visibility in some spots, but we really enjoyed ourselves none the less. Pete was our guide for the tour and did an excellent job navigating... More

Our guide, Pete, has many years of experience and knowledge which served us well as we paddled down a local river in St. Mary's. We didn't feel rushed, or overwhelmed with the idea... More

We had a great time with our guide Pete. He was a great teacher of the river and its flora and fauna. We got to see baby aligators and multiple exotic plants. Got to see an ancient site of a native culture shell mound. Very relaxing too. If you time it right with the tidal flow, you hardly have to... More

This is a great company. The owners guides are knowledgeable and very friendly. The equipment was very good and the cost was very reasonable. The arranged a trip for 14 on Christmas day. We are looking forward to doing another trip with them to Cumberland island.

My husband and I went on a guided kayak trip to Cumberland Island. Booking the trip with Jen was super easy and it was reasonably priced. Paddling with Pete was terrific. He is super professional and safety-oriented. We have kayaked in the past, but most trips were on calmer waters. This was a challenging adventure. We were paddling against a... More

You will not find better guides or owners, they are both, trust me I have paddled with several! Spend a day with Pete or Jennifer and you will leave as friends and get as much as you can ask for...

My daughter and I were first time kayakers she is 11 years old. She was able to paddle the 2 hours on Lofton Creek after Pete taught us how to paddle and gave us safety information. Pete knew about the different wildlife and vegetation in the area. We can't wait to go again on more expeditions with them. It was... More
