What we're about

Our group is for people who are interested in learning how to kayak but just do not know where to start. And for people who have a little experience but want to improve and get on the water more.

No boat? No problem, we have them. All necessary equipment is part of our package, We offer classes taught by American Canoe Association (ACA) certified instructors with an emphasis on having fun while staying safe. Our sessions are not in a class room but are taught under the trees and on the river in your own personal floating work station. (a kayak of course)

We also guide fun adventure trips on southern water ways. All trips are lead by certified guides.

There is no age limitation on this sport, people are kayaking across the country and around the world from age 4 to 80! We will also be offering guided trips on various rivers throughout the year for folks who do not have boats or who just do not feel ready to paddle on their own.

Thank you,

John Miller

I cannot imagine paddling these rivers and not encountering Manatees along with many other types of wildlife. We have a luxury Riverside house reserved with limited spaces. The house is on the Homosassa River just down stream from Homosassa Springs. It has a private pool, private boat dock, huge kitchen and dining room. The house has 3 private bedrooms and two bunkrooms in the pool house apartment. Each bunkroom sleeps 4. We will have one male and one female bunkroom. The cost for 4 nights, most meals and river trips is $400.00 per person sharing the bunk house (private bed or course) or $800.00 if you stay for 8 nights. $850.00 per couple sharing the master bedroom with a king bed for 4 nights or $[masked] for 8 nights in the master bedroom. There are two additional private bedrooms with queen beds. The cost for a queen bedroom is $800.00 for 4 nights or $[masked] for all 8 nights. That fee includes the paddle trips, a bed in the house and breakfast each day, lunch each day and most evening meals. Usually the group chooses to eat out once or twice. It also includes any entry fees, parking fees or shuttle fees that we have to pay on this trip. RENTAL BOATS WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR $50 EACH, THAT IS FOR ALL 3 DAYS, or $100 FOR THE ENTIRE TRIP. THE BOATS WILL BE TRANSPORTED BETWEEN RIVERS. Tandem boats are also available by request. We will have opportunities to swim with the Manatees,,, it gets chilly.
