What you'll do

You'll meet me at a quaint local kayak launch on Turkey Creek where I'll go over the basics of paddling. I provide the VIBE Kayaks and amenities and will escort you through a local natural habitat where you're sure to see a variety of marine life including turtles, fish, alligators and quite frequently manatees.

This paddle is like a walk in the park from start to finish and is primarily shaded. You won't be paddling against currents or in open water against the wind, you'll be paddling through a gently winding creek with overhanging mossy oaks, sandbars and past surprisingly elevated sandy bluffs.
Other things to note
There are no restrooms. Please visit the nearest store, library or park prior to meeting me. While it's very unlikely that you'll get more than your feet wet, I do recommend you keep a dry towel and change of clothes in your car just in case.

Awesome experience with nature! Julia is wonderful - very patient and an excellent guide/host! Pointed out a lot of things I would not have seen. We saw alligators sunning on logs, blue and green herons, turtles swimming up to the kayak and even a manatee! Loved it!

Lovely easy kayak in a beautiful location! Julia was very personable and fun! She really knew the creek and where to find the cute turtles and also the best spots for photos. Even my (hard to impress) teenager said he had an awesome time!! Would definitely recommend this guided tour to others.

This was my second time kayaking with Julia and it was just as magical as the first time. We saw tons of manatees, turtles and even an alligator! Great experience for wildlife enthusiasts! Julia is super awesome and easy to talk to!

Julia was very knowledgeable and friendly. We enjoyed the relaxed pace, as she pointed out the wildlife. We saw manatees, alligators, turtles, osprey and a host of other birds. The kayaks were very comfortable and easy to get in and out of. As seniors, we appreciated that. All in all, it was a woderful experience!

I had a fabulous time kayaking with Julia! I mainly wanted to see manatees. We got to see two! We also saw a family of alligators with their little babies and a lot of turtles. I’m talking we got really close to this wildlife. It was awesome. Julia will take pictures for you as well, so you can actually enjoy the moment, instead of living behind the camera. The area had some shaded spots, so it wasn’t too hot either (my tour time was 10-12pm). As far as Julia’s tour guide skills. They were on point. It’s like she can sense the expectations of what the customer wants. Meaning, if you want to talk, she is a great conversationalist. If you don’t want to talk and just enjoy the scenery, she can do that as well. Hands down, I would highly recommend Julia!
