Had our family take a tour with KC and he is the best in the business. Hes a long time local with a lot of great knowledge of the environment and wildlife. Has a great personality, easy to get along with and will take you to the very best areas in the Tampa Bay area. Even if youve lived here your whole life you will still enjoy a kayak tour with KC.
Was in town for a girls trip and found coconut kayak tours as being close to our stay/location. Went on the Silver Springs and Silver River State Park Kayak Adventure. The location was beautiful and kayaking was a great experience. Based on other reviews I do agree that KC is full of knowledge and has a lot of expertise on the wildlife on the river. He does care very much about making sure you have a great time while kayaking. He put a lot of thought and energy into the trip and making sure the kayaking part of the trip was enjoyable. As far as the bad goes the van that KC picked us up in smelled of tobacco smoke so it was very hard to travel in for the long trip up to Silver Springs. My group are non-smokers so that part was very unpleasant. The van had the back window busted out and plastic/tape covering it so it was very loud on the interstate to where it was difficult to have a conversation. Time Management/expectations were not clear of the time spent of the drive time once we got to the river. He had told us that the trip would take about 2 hours one way but it ended up being about 3 hours one way. After the 3 hours we had to wait another 30-40 min for KC to go pay the fees and drop off the van at the end of the river. The drive home was the same. KC kept reassuring us that it would only be another 20-30 min at the end of the drive but our phone GPS estimating over an hour. All this would have been fine if he had set a more accurate representation of how long the day would be. I think it ended up being a 12 hour day which was not anticipated. KC had communicated to me by email prior to the trip that the kayak trip lasts 4 hours and overall a 4hr drive time so a very full 8 hour day. Another criticism is that KC answers his phone/text messages while driving so we didn't always feel all that safe on the driving part of the trip. He slammed on his brakes quite a bit and was weaving into the other lane so other cars were honking at our vehicle. Overall the kayaking was beautiful but I might look at other businesses on my next trip out to this area.
