for a cost of about 22 dollars maybe more now you can enjoy a trip and a view of the animals and how they are looked after in their natural habitat. the boat trip lasts about 20 minutes but its well worth it you go slow and then fast

We did the early morning "Kayak into a new day" tour. Cody was our guide and he very fun and patient. The day was perfect and very reasonable considering you are in the heart of the swamp. We kayaked for 6 miles through mangroves and open river. Easy to manage as there was no current. Had a great time and... More

We had a great kayaking trip through the mangroves, our guide, Cody, had to handle a semi-emergency situation with a couple of canoers at the start that he handled very well and still got back on track with our tour. He was very knowledgeable about the local wildlife and enthusiastic about his job. So much fun.

We stayed at the Ivey House and signed up for the 7am tour with Troy. What a great adventure! My partially disabled husband and I shared a tandem kayak and with Troy's direction, easily managed the narrow Mangrove tunnels. Wildlife viewing was our goal and our expectations were exceeded! Troy provided water and snacks during the trip and made the... More

My husband and I did an evening kayak tour with John. It was amazing! Paddling through the mangrove tunnels was like going into a cathedral and the sunset was incredible. John was very informative and helpful.

We stayed at the Ivey House and went on the afternoon kayak trip - just our family of four in two tandem canoes plus our guide Tom and trainee guide Ken. Loved it - scenery amazing. Tom very knowledgeable and competent. We saw plenty of birds and some gators but experience of paddling through the mangrove tunnels unforgettable. Highly recommended.

Stayed at the Ivey House and then took a private kayaking tour with John. John was hands down the best. I have a 10 YO with ADHD and he did a fantastic job handling her 10 million questions and her overall restlessness. He took the time to teach us way more than I could ever retain. While it is priced... More

Troy, our twilight tour guide, was enthusiastic and kept us well informed. My just about 12 year old daughter and I had a great time. Paddling through the mangrove tunnels with nobody else around, coming out in the prairies to watch the sunset, and catching the reflections of spider and alligator eyes on the way back was a one of...

Want a cool day to talk about? Then take this tour. Our tour guides name was Tom. He had 3 green ears along for the tour and he made us feel at ease. He did everything he could to assist our inexperience, including trading boat places in the tandem kayak when our most insecure member wanted to give up and... More
