“Six years ago, Mark Bullington and his two children, Amber and Aaron, decided to turn their passion into their livelihood.
“Showcasing Florida’s beauty, Amelia Island Kayak Excursions offers both kayak and boat expeditions throughout wildlife-rich Egan’s Creek, Lofton’s Creek, and more of Florida’s coastal environment.
“In 2017, Amelia Island Kayak Excursions was recognized by the Nassau County Chamber of Commerce as the Small Business of the Year and received the Bold City Best Water Sports Award.
“To educate the next generation on Florida’s wildlife, they partnered with an after school program by gifting students a free kayak trip if they meet their academic goals.
“Amelia Island Kayak Excursions is an example of a community-oriented small business, and I look forward to watching their continued growth and success. Congratulations.”
As Chairman of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, Senator Rubio continues the tradition of honoring America’s small businesses and entrepreneurs.
