If you have the chance to visit the Everglades, don’t miss it! The ecosystem is truly unique in all of the United States as it affords you the opportunity to see animals that can’t be viewed anywhere else. There are an amazing number of alligators and crocs throughout the park. It’s truly a magical experience to be able to see... More

My wife and I enjoyed the boat ride. A nice breeze washed over us as we sat in the shade. Our tour guide/pilot was a compendium of information about the mangrove islands and the wildlife here. Very edifying. But we didn't see much wildlife. We spotted a bald eagle perched on a denuded mangrove branch. It watched us impassively as... More

We opted for the ten thousand Island tour which takes you through the islands to the Gulf of Mexico. The boat trip lasts for about 90 mins and was very pleasant. We saw lots of birds, but the stingrays, dolphins, turtles and manatees were nowhere to be seen.

We were here May 13th 2014. We were excited to take the boat tour and see the alligators, dolphins, etc. the whole "swamp" feeling that we were told we'd see. The lady gladly took our money and told us to enjoy ourselves. Our captain (Bill) was very nice but as soon as we pulled away from the dock he cautioned... More

This trip allows you to see the mangroves up close. The boats are limited to 6 tourists so you have plenty of space and other people don't block your view. Tour guide Josh was very good, although he kept warning us and apologizing if we didn't see much wildlife. Sounds like other tourists have complained, but folks, this is not... More

We enjoyed a mid-May weekday late afternoon tour. Fabulous time to go--after the "high season", and before the high heat and mosquito season! Amazing ocean/sky/mangrove vistas, birds and dolphins. Icing on the cake was the high tide which allowed us to quietly drift past a mangrove rookery where we saw a variety of seabird nests and babies, including pelicans. As... More

Our boat captain took us all the way out to the open Gulf waters, where we actually saw two dolphins surfacing near our boat, but they were too quick to photograph. The sea was a little choppy. Boy did we see a lot of ospreys nesting and what have you. It was better than I expected. The whole trip took... More

Our guides were very knowledgable and even taught us native Floridians a few things. We were fortunate to have beautiful weather so it was a smooth ride. They slow down for photographs and wildlife viewing, and point out features of the area. When we encountered dolphins, they brought the boat up to speed to encourage the dolphins to ride the... More

We took a detour to Everglades City just because of Carl Hiaasen's "Nature Girl" and stumbled upon the 10,000 island National Park boat tour. The wind was blowing at about 20 knots so we didn't expect to see all that much but decided to give it a go. We did see a number of Osprey, Dolphins, Egrets and a sea... More
