Great morning in the bluffs! I love how calling ahead gives insight to the tide pull. Always helpful!

I had the privilege of working with Amelia Island Kayak Excursions to plan an outing for a corporate group (25 people). Everyone was so friendly and easy to work with, and the tour itself was amazing. I would recommend AIKE to anyone who is looking for a truly local experience - the scenery was beautiful, guides were informative and all participants had a blast!

My family and I were on vacation at Fernandina Beach looking for something fun to do aside from our time on the beach. We had 4 adults and none of us had ever kayaked before. Our 3 guides, Mark, Aaron, and Brooks were extremely friendly, made a point to get know each person on our tour, and were helpful in teaching us the basics we needed to know in order to kayak. The 2 hour tour was very leisurely, great for beginners like us, and the scenery of Lofton Creek was beautiful. We had a wonderful time and would definitely do this again!

This was only my second time on a kayak tour but I wanted to explore a local area. Two young adults and myself signed up for the Lofton Creek 2 hour tour. From the beginning, we were all given the royal treatment. Brad and Aaron were our guides and they put the "family" in family business.

One person in my group was nervous about first-time kayaking and both guys spent time making her more comfortable. These guys took time talking with each person during the tour, helping "unstick" us from the banks and sharing their knowledge of nature & history. There was even a separate kids' summer camp running at the same time, so we got to hold a small alligator along with the group.

I would definitely recommend this family and plan to tell everyone I know about my great experience!
