I was really nervous, being this my first time kayaking in ocean water, but Susan and George made my experience enjoyable. They are both very educated about the ocean life observed on the trip, and took the time to explain behaviors and habitats of them.

Great experience for both my out of town guests and me (I'm a local). Susan and George were very informative and great guides. Also a nice little workout that's much more interesting than the gym!

We had a wonderful kayak trip. Had so much fun. Lovely guides. A little bit challenging for the over 60 set but not too bad.

We had a great time with Susan and George. They were very sensitive to everyone's needs and to needs of the wildlife that we were able to spot. It's apparent that Susan and George love what they do and are good stewards of the estuary....More

Took my granddaughter and two friends (on Spring Vacation) and the experience was wonderful! Dolphins were swimming under the Kayaks, Osprey, etc. Susan Cone was an unusually warm and informative guide. Do not leave Naples before you do this. The best.

The guides were knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. They did a great job of sheparding our group and making sure the group was well attended to. Unfortunately, on this particular excursion we didn't see a tremendous amount of sealife, although lots of water fowl. That said,...More

Yes! I've taken classes and made many observations over the years. A guest will not relax and learn and enjoy their surroundings until certain needs are met. Maslow's heirarchy of human needs: 1. Physiological 2. Safety 3. Love/Belonging 4. Esteem 5. Self-Actualization It only takes...More
