I did two mangroves/Everglades tours in Florida in the space of a week, and this one was by far the best. Our guide was brilliant, and the tour was exactly what we wanted - kayaking through mangrove tunnels spotting gators!

It was a great experience! We have seen a lot of birds, big shells and the highlight were the dophins. The trip with the kayak was very funny. I can recommend this tour everyone who is interested in the nature of the 10 000 Islands.

We wanted to explore the Big Cypress Park portion of the Everglades. I'm so glad we went with the Kayak Tour here than those airboat tours. They seemed so commercialized, and after watching videos of people holding on for dear life on the airboat, we decided not to. The Kayak Tour is recommended for anyone that really wants to immerse...

Excellent tour, excellent guide, do not go if you are arachnophobic. This tour is all about being in the swamp and close to nature. The guide has in depth knowledge of the area and can answer all of your questions. The only reason I will never do this again is because I am terrified of spiders and had a panic... More

We booked this trip while visiting Marco Island. Cpt. Josh was our guide. We couldn't have been any luckier. Josh really was there for us the whole time and made sure we had a great opportunity to catch fish. Highlight of the day was being pulled around in the kayak by a big Redfish. Also saw a pair of Eagles... More

We were staying at Midway Campground along the Tamiami Trail with no phone or internet service. We only had one morning we could do a tour out of Everglades City. We took a chance and headed towards there hoping to pickup some cell service. At the intersection of Hwy 29 we called Everglades Area Tours hoping to book a boat... More

Our trip was excellent. The kayaks were in excellent condition and fairly comfortable. I would recommend some sort of pad to sit on, but I was fine until I had to duck below the mangrove branches. I suspect we saw more than many do on trips being just 3 adults who knew kayaking and were interested in "nature." The guide,... More

We wanted to show a visitor the beauty and diversity of the Everglades and the 10,000 Island area. Our boat tour with our guide, Heather, filled the bill perfectly. She was knowledgeable and interesting. Our friend was impressed!. So kudos to Everglades Area Tours for the very entertaining and educational 2 hours.

We booked a fully-supported 3 day, 2 night kayaking, fishing, and camping trip with Everglades Area Tours, and loved it! This was a base camping trip, meaning that EAT delivered us and our guides, Don and Josh, to Pavilion Key by motorboat. We set up camp on a sandy peninsula there, and started kayaking and fishing almost immediately. We are... More

Everglades Area Tours gave us a fabulous eco-tour of the Everglades. Heather recommended that we take the morning power boat tour for a better chance of seeing wildlife. We were not disappointed. Josh was our tour guide. He was a GREAT spotter and extremely well informed about the plants, landscapes, water and wildlife. We were entertained by dolphins swimming around... More
