Had a great time. Did the 2:30pm - 5:00pm tour. Our tour guide was really helpful and did not rush us at all. The view was beautiful and worth the muscle work.

Our tour guide was awesome! He was even from our home town! Such a great time! I would recommend it for everyone! I did bring a seat cushion for extra padding! The water temperature was great and there were no bugs! A great time of year to go.

"Rock Springs-Perfect experience"

We booked this holiday to Florida as a memory making trip and our kayaking experience certainly gave us lovely memories. Our daughter and I shared a kayak, and our guide Austin was very patient with us as we could not seem to go in a straight line but it was never a problem for Austin who made sure we were not left behind. Then the group stopped up stream and we were encouraged to get out and enjoy the spring water with lots of photo opportunities of the lovely scenery and Austin was more than happy to take family pics. The base for the kayaking has toilet facilities as well as a small shop for basics as well as some interesting items. If we were in Florida again, we would definitely do this again....lovey way to spend an afternoon.

The hubs, our 6 year old and I went on a Sunday afternoon and had a great experience! The water and views were sooo beautiful; saw a few exotic birds, and a lot of fish. Austin was our guide and he was amazing, patient and made the experience even more fun, especially for our son :) Definitely a fun, spontaneous thing to do in Orlando. Don’t skip out on the rope swing at the end!!
