They are super friendly and very helpful! I recommend this place for anyone weather they are a beginner or experienced. They tell you information and tips and they care a lot about your safety. The wife said to me “if you guys do happen to fall off don’t panic I just make sure your safe and we can get the kayaks once we know your safe, but I’m confident you won’t fall off”. My new favorite kayaking business.
Great experience. Came to the exact location of our choice. Very easy to work with. Convenient and affordable. I would recommend and use again.
My friend and I took the War Veteran Memorial kayak trip with MaryJo and Jim. Very laid back. Very friendly. Mary Jo wanted us to experience the day in the way we wanted to spend it. We saw dolphins, many birds at the bird sanctuary, explored a nearby island that had tons of shells. Very relaxing, no hurry. I will definitely book with them again!
We rented a tandem kayak from Sandy Feet. Daniel, the owner met us at Upper Tampa State Park where he helped us launch and met us after our trip. Not only is Daniel knowledgeable, he's just an all around chill guy. He was extremely helpful in assisting us in identifying an experience tailored to our time constraints, abilities, and desires. We had canoeing experience but no kayaking experience. Daniel recommended a route, through the park's waterways to the bay. He tutored us on how to avoid the oyster beds and small inlets, how to watch the surface of the water for the deepest areas to paddle through, and how to work with the tides. The wildlife was enjoyable: flying fish, herons, egrets, a huge raccoon washing his breakfast. We encountered a few fishermen in a speed boat checking their traps and 2 other small fishing boat tours getting primed for some fishing in the bay. Two suggestions for folks new to kayaking and the area: gloves to avoid blisters and a map of the water trail system. (We had no problem following the water trail markers, but found ourselves moving more quickly than anticipated and explored the markers in another direction. It would have been helpful if we had thought to take a picture of the map at the launch or brought a paper copy with us. I did not see paper copies available at the park, so it's probably something best printed from home.) One other note, although some reviews of the State Park commented on the bugs, we had no problem at all with that in the water. Based on our fun morning and Daniel's friendly and flexible expertise, we highly recommend Sandy Feet!
My wife and I had a awesome time with our guide (and owner) Daniel. He was great in assisting us in all aspects of the trip and his friendliness and good humor had us all laughing like we had known each other for years. Will definitely be using again. Highly Recommended!
Kurt amd Lindsay were great! Lindsey explained the experience of the different locations and Kurt was so friendly and helpful. On time for drop off and pick up. Kurt even took the time to show us beginners how to kayak and went on the water with both of us for a trial run. Thank you so much:)
We had a great time. Kurt was a fantastic guide. The mangrove trails were beautiful and we learned a lot. We even saw a manatee. Take some heavy duty sunscreen especially for you legs. We would definitely go again.
Amazing time!! Kurt was so knowledgeable, super smooth waters, the kayaks were well maintained, and we didnt feel rushed at all. He took his time answering all of our questions and pointing out all of the surrounding areas. We saw devil rays, birds, fish, and 2 sharks! So worth it! Definitely going back!!!
Had an awesome time! Fantastic tour guide and beautiful scenery. I would highly recommend the guided kayak tours.
We had a great time kayaking and the guide was very helpful.
You wouldnt think so but this little pocket of preserve land is home to few deer left in densely populated and built out Pinellas County. My jouney saw a wsy cool owl. River otters 3 racoons and most precious a fawn with presumeably her mother catching a drink. Beautiful canopy above ez paddle creek. No motorboatd...very peaceful.
Good kayaks, excellent customer service!
Lindsay was very informative and a great instructor. She gave us tips on the area and where to go. She also text me a map so I would know which island was which. I couldn't cancel a Groupon that I had bought with another company so she was kind enough to honor their price. If your looking for calmer waters then use this company. They have a drop off sight in Palm Harbor. The other companies are only on the ocean. They were prompt for the drop off and the pick up of our Kayaks and paddle boards. We even seen some dolphins!! I will definitely use Sandy Feet again when visiting the area. Great people, great value and a fabulous experience. Thanks Lindsay and Captain Ted.
