We did a 4 hour guided kayak tour in early february and it was a amazing time. We saw a lot of birds and as an unforgettable highlight we were up close to dolphins several times. It was so great to see them swimming and jumping behind our boat. This tour was one of the highlights of our rountrip through... More

I very much enjoyed canoeing through the Mangroves. Not too much excitement, but very beautiful. We only saw 3 gators, some birds, and lots of mangroves! three hours was more than enough time, I was happy to be heading back, I think 2 hours is all you would need. The guide was very kind and helpful and knowledgable. I would... More

We had a great photo trip with Everglades Area Tours. The guides knew the hotspot and got us up close and personal with some gorgeous wildlife. The half day photo tour is a bit pricey at $150/person but well worth it for the naturalist or photographer with limited time. We had one day to spend in the Everglades, and we... More

Captain Charles is an incredible guide! Several of us wanted to geocache in the Everglades before starting our bicycle trip in the Keys. This was our first visit to the Everglades but will NOT be our last! We just loved the raw natural beauty of the place and spent time learning about the plant, sea and bird species present and...

Took a 4 hour guided kayak tour of the mangrove tunnels in Everglades National Park. Ron, our tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable regarding all manner of flora and fauna we saw, pointing out plants that would have otherwise been easily missed. This was our first time kayaking and Ron was very reassuring, even in the tight tunnels. We were able... More

Visited the Everglades National Park last Nov. To me it is a beautiful and interesting place. Not all like I was expecting a swamp to be. Took a boat tour and the operator was very informative.

Not much else by way of wildlife but the walk on the island was really interesting. Learned tons about the different shells/animals/sponges washed up on the... More

My girlfriend and I signed up for the 1/2 day Mangrove tour. It was the first time my girlfriend went solo. Our guide Ron was great with her. He was very patient with her as we transverse the Mangrove tunnel. The mangrove tunnel is very narrow at some spots and difficult to navigate through but Ron helped her out with... More

I am a concierge at a local Naples hotel and my guests are always interested in a day in the everglades. I took my son and a friend on the boat assisted kayak tour, recommended by Captain Charles. We spent a good 4 hours island hopping, learning about the eco system, kayaking and witnessing the life of both land, air... More

The weather not good so we were limited as to where we could go. The guide took us to some tidal creeks that at times had a nice flowing current, so, we covered a lot of a ground. There were 3 of us and we averaged 3-4 Sea Trout each, however, we were hoping to get into some snook or... More
