The Story of

Ecoventure Tours

Whether it’s paddle boarding, surfing, hiking, or skateboarding with their pup Gnarly, Joshua and Kristen have always kept fun and adventure at the core of their relationship. Being a recent graduate from the University of Florida (GO GATORS!), Josh aspired to create a business focusing on their core values: faith, family, fun, and environmental conservation. Growing up in Crystal River, Josh learned the Florida wildlife and waterways well and has been working as a kayaking tour guide for the last 4 years. His love for marine life  and the unique ecosystems they live in has inspired him to build his own business educating and sharing about the beautiful planet we live in. When not on the water, you can catch Josh and Kristen serving at their local church, traveling, playing with their dog, or just chilling on the couch binge-watching Survivor! We hope you join the adventure as we share our stoke to make this an unforgettable experience from our family to yours!
