Great Experience 
I recently took my 8 and 12 year old nephews on a kayaking “adventure” down the Estero River on February 19, 2020. The staff was very helpful and the cost was reasonable for a nice 2 hour trip. We were able to see all kinds of wildlife including a good sized gator. The river was very easy to navigate as there was almost no current. This made it very easy for my 12 year old to paddle his own kayak. Would highly recommend this trip to anyone looking for a nice half day activity.- Michael M. 2/2020

Located right there on Estero River
Great, busy and efficient outfitters with perfect location right on the river. Full range of services. We enjoyed our canoeing and likely will be back in the future – podrozniczka60 12/2019

Excellent Staff
My wife and I stopped by to look to replace one of our Kayaks. Justin was a tremendous help, gave us a great deal and we ended up replacing both of our kayaks. We had been using J cradles, and were struggling getting the kayaks on top. Justin suggested a different style to get the kayaks on top of the car and instead of an hour to put them up, it takes 15 minutes. Estero River Outfitters also has staff to help you put your kayaks in the river. There is no better place to go for your kayak needs, or an enjoyable day on the river.

They Rock!
Had a great time. Kayaked along the Estero River for about two hours. The staff was super friendly and laid back. The equipment is all nice and on the newer side. The river itself was nice and shaded for most of our trip. There was little or no current, so paddling was super easy. It was easy to find and easy to get to.

Favorite place to fish in Estero
If your a kayak fisher, this is going to be your dream spot! 20” Snook, 5lb bass and exotic cichlids are more numerous then people here! The guides are amazing and will provide live bait and any tackle you could think of! The river gets quite narrow a few miles up, but well worth it to explore.

Wonderful Paddling
Always a wonderful place to rent a kayak and explore the beautiful Estero River. I grew up in Estero, and I’ve seen this place grow. They have always always been awesome. I even bought a kayak from them not too long ago, and it was a great buying experience. Everyone was knowledgeable and friendly. They found me the perfect kayak, and I use it every weekend I possibly can! My dog sits on the back, and she loves it too!
