We had a really great time on the Turkey Creek inlet and this place is a great and easy place to put in and go! The rates are very reasonable and the folks there are extremely helpful and nice! We spent about 2 hours in the water and saw birds fishing, gators, turtles … but no manatees :( … maybe next time! Please give it a try.

They took extra time to provide excellent instructions for a first time paddle boarder! Beautiful area to paddle and staff are very helpful.

Kayak tour was the best!!! It was a beautiful day in April and our tour guide Sam was great! I’be been coming to Palm Bay Area for over 20 years and this was the best trip. We saw many manatees, 4 alligators and tons turtles 🐢 I recommend everyone do this at least once.

My mom and I did the 2 h Kayak tour of Turkey Creek. It was beautiful scenery and we got to see different plants, fish, turtles, a gator, and manatees. It was also a great arm workout. Our tour guide, Paul, was kind, helpful, informative, and patient. I highly recommend.

I had the best time and experience with Paddling Paradise.. Our guide PAUL was amazing!! Outstanding!! And the nicest guy.. He kept to the pace of all the people in our group. Was a small group. Some had no experience, I have some. He showed us manatee and alligators. Some on shore and some in water.. the turtles came right up near kayaks. I highly recommend Paddling Paradise to everyone!! It was an experience I won’t forget!! I’ll be back for Paddle Board lessons and I’ll definitely ask for PAUL again... it’s something I have wanted to try and I think Paddling Paradise is where I’ll have the best experience!! Thank u Paul!!!

Our group of 3 and another party of 4 spent 2.5 hours exploring Turkey Creek and the sanctuary on March 24, 2021, with Tim as our guide. We saw 10 alligators, 8 manatees, eagles, herons and lots of turtles. The temperature was about 80 degrees and the wind was negligible until our return. I felt comfortable among the alligators because I had confidence in Tim---I wouldn't have wanted to kayak without a guide in this area. I was jazzed the whole time.

A group of five of us went kayaking and had a fantastic time. Our guide, Tim, was full of information and helped us keep our calm when we ended up kayaking right over a HUGE gator. Definitely saw a variety of wildlife. Will be back in the future! Just as an FYI- online booking only gives you the option to reserve a spot for up to 6 people, but they are able to accommodate larger groups as well.

We rented a tandem kayak yesterday at 10am and spent nearly 3 hours paddling around Turkey Creek. We’ve done quite a bit of paddling around the state and this was the most varied wildlife we’ve ever seen in one day! We saw manatees, a dolphin, lots of turtle species, osprey, alligators, pelicans, & herons. The rental process was really quick & easy, and we’d definitely recommend renting here & paddling Turkey Creek if you want to get an up-close look at Florida’s natural beauty.

My son came down for a FL vacation and our day in the Turkey Creek Sanctuary was the best time. We rented Hobie Paddle Kayaks and stayed out for almost 5 hours. Neither of us were sore, and I'm eighty four. Gracious attendants, good price, I've got to get a grandchild here and do it again. p.s. saw alligator, manatee, and much more

2.5 hours of guided tour on kayaks (or paddle boards). Guide was very knowledgeable! Saw river otters, gators, tons of turtles and birds. Highly recommend this for anyone who is even mildly adventurous.
