Excellent kayaks, very knowledgeable guide. Peaceful relaxing paddle. The water was gorgeous. Saw numerous interesting plants, birds, a couple baby gators & otters. Back at the shop Sue was very helpful & knowledgeable & sold me a women's specific PFD. Matt, our guide then recommended a great place for lunch. Excellent day for my husband & I.

Aardvark's is great! We did the Chassahowitzka tour and saw three manatees right at the start. Matt is a great guide and has an astonishing ability to convey knowledge, even if the group is going upstream. The tour with Aardvark's was one of the highlights of our trip to Florida.

I enjoyed a wonderful 3 hour kayak tour in the St. Martins Marsh Aquatic Preserve led by Matt, a knowledgeable and personable marine biologist. The location was an easy 1.5 hour drive from the Tampa area. Matt and Sue took extra time to match the right equipment to my experience and comfort level. Having such a small group (4) felt... More

Great experience with this Kayak company as they made it easy to get to the site, paid for the parking and got us launched and ready for the two hour tour. We were accompanied by an experienced biologist which we appreciated who was very familiar with the indigenous species and made our ecotour an enjoyable and learning experience. Numerous Manatees...

Matt and Susan were very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. I was travelling in Florida on my own, so it was nice to have a chance to get out and do something I couldn't otherwise do on my own. Nice kayaks, lots of great info, good people. Thanks!

The guide was excellent and knew just where to find the manatees. He was quite knowledgable about manatees as well as other flora and fauna of the area. I highly recommend this company and their tour.

We loved it! The place is a family business so the people are super friendly and helpful. The equipment was in great shape and the vests were washed. The lady who welcomed us helped us with everything we needed and was able to answer all of our questions. She selected the perfect equipment for us and we were convinced we... More

My wife and I had a wonderful time on our Manatee adventure. Our guide from Aardvark's was very knowledgeable not just about the Manatee's but about all of Eco-system of the area. Great experience would do it again if given the opportunity.

Hands down, the highlight of our trip. My husband and I booked a tour on a Friday morning, we got lucky and were the only ones that booked that day which was great, though I'm sure it is still an amazing experience with more than just your family/friends. Matt and Sue were amazing! Sue was very welcoming and pleasant to... More

Absolutely Fantastic Day with Matt on the St. Martins Marsh Back Country Private Kayak Tour. Meet up with Sue and Matt at the shop and the Eddyline kayaks were loaded and ready to head to the back country. Aardvark carries a wide variety of Eddylines and you can pick your yak prior to the trip. Off on the water in... More
