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.

We went today with our 9 yr old and had a great experience. Captain Charles was very knowledgable and passionate about conservation. We saw some birds and LOTS of dolphin who entertained us plenty. 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

I took a private photography cruise with Everglades Area Tours yesterday evening. Captain Charles made it an experience of a lifetime! We saw so many wonderful birds and he always made sure to get us in the perfect place for the light. We saw some manatees to and that was pretty special. I did the evening tour and the sunlight...

Booking the trip we heard about tons of flexibility and customizing the experience. The follow up was horrible. They were unable to work with us as our travel plans change due to child's needs and while I left phone messages the responses were sent via email and the captain did not communicate directly. When requesting to shift our trip from... More

This was a great tour, Ron was our guide and he was very knowledgable about everything. We were a family of three, and even our 10 year old had a great time. I had some back issues, which made me nervous about kayaking alone, but it worked out so that I could go with my husband and our son went... More

I could not imagine having a better guide! Don was fantastic! Somehow he managed everyone's needs, cooked great meals and provided us with a fantastic nature walk around Pavilion Key
