      Terry was an incredible guide. Exceptionally knowledgeable and informative. She really made the experience one of a kind! We saw crabs in trees and even a dolphin jumping out of the water. She has a great eye. I definitely would not have seen the wildlife without her. Book your tour with Wildlife Eco Kayak tour!

      Terri was great! She was knowledgeable, helpful, and my daughter absolutely adored her! They even caught a jelly fish! Seen manatees at the ramp where we loaded and unloaded! Definitely a great experience!

      Terri was very knowledgeable and did an excellent job guiding us through the entire adventure! We knew that since this is nature, no sittings of animals could be promised, but we were thrilled to see crabs, cranes and dolphins. So fun!
      Fun trip

      Dave was a gracious guide, interested in our experience (s) and sharing his local knowledge with us. The heat and tide were not our friends and he was in tune enough to vary the trip plan. Would do again.
      Good tour, lots of paddling
      Amanda_S, Jul 2023
      Lots of paddling! My hands were raw by an hour in, we cut the tour short and came back an hour early. Although luck of the draw we did not see any wildlife other then birds. Our tour guide did his best to make the tour fun and interactive.
      not for beginners
      Michelle_M, Jun 2023
      We saw some manatees playing and they went right under our kayaks! We also had a dolphin come right in front of us. Had it not been for those experiences we would have hated this! The guide was not great at leading us. He barely talked to us the whole time. He didn't even really explain kayaking so we had to teach the kids how to. We weren't fitted for our kayaks so we were really uncomfortable in the seats the whole time and had to adjust them ourselves. It was probably 10 minutes into the kayaking before he even told us which way to hold the paddle. We have done kayak trips before and we have loved them. I think the guide really drug the experience down. If you are experienced I think you will like it. If you need any kind of guidance or are new to kayaking then this is not the experience for you.
      Educational and Fun!

      Do not book
      Michel_D, Mar 2023
      We kayak for 1 1/2 hour around the mangroove trees , we saw 2 pelicans and a crab No Manatees and No dolphin the advertising showed pictures of manatees and dolphins We were really patient but after all that time we decided to go as there was NOTHING to see I will NOT recommend TOO expansive to see nothing .

      Response from Host, Apr 2023
      I told you at the very beginning of the tour that it is a wildlife tour and as the name implies, it is wild and that unfortunately I can't call the dolphin or Manatee to show up. I pulled out a jelly and explained its anatomy as well as showing a newly hatched slider turtle to you. Just because there are pictures of animals that are seen on tours, dose not mean that they will be in that exact same area during every tour. That's not how nature works. Your family completely ruined one of my kayaks and you didn't even say anything when it was very politely pointed out to you
      Take this tour!

      Teri is an amazing guide - so knowledgeable! And Indian River Lagoon is a magical place! Highly recommend this tour!

      Thanks for the great review! It warms my heart to know that you appreciate the IRL as much as I do
      Great eco tour for families!
      Opal_N, Jul 2022
      A great tour! We saw and learned about a lot of wildlife that we otherwise would not have experienced on our trip to Florida. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, and she did a great job engaging both the kids and adults. She was clearly passionate about sea life, and it came through. I definitely recommend this tour, and would be happy to go in it again myself.

      Great trip great people
      Austin_D, Jun 2022
      I wish I could give this trip 6 stars. The owner of this business, Terri, is so very helpful and such a wonderful woman! If you have any questions beforehand or after she will go above and beyond to answer them. Juli, the tour guide, is so friendly and a wonderful person as well! She is very knowledgeable about what she does and has been in the business for years. She went out of her normal way to make our trip perfect. They both made our experience amazing. I did this trip on my 21st birthday and they made it so special! Please support this business as they do amazing work and deserve it! Definitely worth the price and even more. I loved everything about this trip.
      Altogether great kayaking tour!
      Robin_B, May 2022
      Our guide, Julie, was amazing. So engaging, knowledgeable and made the tour so enjoyable. She happily accommodated our inexperience. My husband and I greatly enjoyed our kayak tour with her. Booking was easy, communication was great. We had a couple of issues with equipment and would suggest it might be time to replace some kayaks. We would definitely kayak with this company again.
      Wonderful kayak eco tour
      Monica_H, Apr 2022
      Teri was wonderful! Very knowledgeable and pleasant. Fun and educational for both adults and kids. I would definitely recommend for everyone!
