Took the boat assisted kayak tour on a very windy afternoon with Captain Jeff, who did a great job launching us in a cove protected from the high winds and rough water at Pavilion Key. Captain Jeff shared a lot of his knowledge regarding the many birds and other wildlife we came across while on the water as well as... More

Allure private boat tour located in City Seafood Captain Jeff was outstanding. We took a 2 hour trip filled with wildlife around every turn. Would be a great family excursion for any age

My wife and I have been on many eco tours over the years and this was undoubtedly the best. We did the boat assisted kayak tour morning trip. Capt. Jeff was extremely knowledgeable. He obviously loves his job and his enthusiasm shows. We truly got a great sense of the beauty and peaceful solitude of the Everglades.

My family and I were on vacation and had been recommended to go. We took the two hour everglades trip. It was peaceful, we felt safe and it transported us into another world, which is what we wanted. The Dolphins were fun but the nesting bird were tremendous. We had Captain Jeff, who was extremely knowledgeable and patiently answered all... More

We did a two night, three day camping and Kayak trip with Everglades Area Tours last month. We had one of their power boats drop us, our guide, our gear, and kayaks, off on an island within Everglads national Park. Our guide, Don, was fantastic. He is very knowledgeable and has a great way with kids. He also did all... More

What a great day! Our family of four, including two teens had an experience of a life time! Great history and education of the area along with a wonderful nature walk on the beach. In addition, we saw at least 12 Dolphins, rays, black tipped shark, schools and schools of fish! Couldn't have asked for a better trip. The photo... More

This was our third trip in South Florida exploring its ecosystems, and each time it's been a new and wonderful experience. This was the first time we went... More

We had an absolutely amazing time on our three hour tour with Steve. He was knowledgeable, very friendly, and answered every question we had. He was also flexible (he alerted our tour so we could follow dolphins that we saw along the way!!). Highly recommended for anyone looking for a real ecotourism visit in the Everglades!

We did the 10,000 island boat, kayak, hike tour with Captain Josh. What a great afternoon! Captain Josh was very personable and shared stories about the area along with his own personal experiences. We had debated going on an airboat tour, but after some research decided that this would be more interesting and more environmental. We were right! I would... More
