Tropical Kayak Tours was started in
May of 1999 under the corporation of
RG Enterprises of Vero Beach.
It is owned and operated
by Ronda Good.
"Exploring this beautiful state has truly enriched my life. I would now like to share my experience and knowledge and love of nature. Many creatures can be invisible to the untrained eye. As a self-trained naturalist, many hours of observation and follow-up readings have given me insight into the habits of the wildlife we will see. Thank you for touring my website and I look forward to seeing you on the water. Welcome to Paradise!"
The Tours :
Ronda's spirit of exploration has created opportunities for the novice paddler, or the expert, which Disney, Costa Rica or Belize would envy.
I have paddled many places in the world, including the above, Hawaii, Japan, Australia, Puerto Rico, Cabo and the Boundary Waters of Minnesota, and none of those places shine any brighter than what Ronda can show you in Central Florida.
She has a passion for ensuring that we who come to visit will leave with memories that will more than linger. If there is a stream or any other water way, along with flora and fauna that inhabit the area, that she doesn't know it is only because the tourist types like me have distracted her from her explorations.
And, she has a style that makes most outfitter's trips look like an after thought.
This is her business, but in truth, kayaking is her passion. GREAT MEALS, attention to detail, an ability to be in synch with her clients are the most visible attributes. Teaching, sharing and helping the rest of us experience and embrace the beauty, and paradoxically, the fragility, of our world sets her apart.
The Japanese have a word giri that in English translates as 'a debt that can never be fully repaid.' A trip with Ronda will help you understand."
Thank you Vince!
