We like to say that Everglades City may have the name but we have everything else! Located in Florida City just 10 miles from the main entrance of the Everglades National Park. Tours in the Glades offers Guided Everglades Tours of all kinds. Full Day Tours, Morning Tours, Afternoon Tours and Night Walks. Sightseeing, Paddling with canoes or kayaks. Wet Walks or "Slough Slogs" as the locals say in the Cypress Domes. Alligator Watching, Bird watching and more.We also offer canoe rentals and all the info for a self guided tour. The national park service chose the East Coast for the main entrance for its unique opportunity to see 9 eco-systems in one day. We have 7 canoe trails from marine estuaries in Florida Bay to old moonshiner trails in the red mangrove. 6 biking trails through the Rock Pineland, Dwarf Cypress and sloughs and coastal marsh prairies. Hiking trails and easy boardwalks, overlooks and paved trails make a great day for all types of adventurers!

National Park

Good National Park site to visit. Take an airboat tour for a fun day. This is a very large park and lots to do in the area.

Great views, excellent waterboat ride - value for money. The Alligator farm was excellent and the feeding session was entertaining.

We (my wife Magda, my son Patrick and myself) enjoyed this full-day tour very much. We had a boat ride with kayaks and also short walks. Our group, guided by Careen, was a German speaking group, so Careen explained everything in German. We enjoyed watching the crocodiles and also saw turtles. Of course, we donated some blood to the mosquitos.... More

I did a Full Day Tour and Night Walk with Tours in the Glades, and it was one of the best experiences of my tourist life. Kayaking through mangroves and grassland filled with native fish and alligators...walking knee deep through swampy areas filled with cypress trees and exotic plants...watching a crocodile sleep on the bank and a manatee float lazily...

Great full day adventure in the Everglades, with Anhinga trail (gators, turtles, birds galore), wet walk (gators, water moccasin, and just amazing beauty), kayak through mangroves (more gators and excitement). So much to see, so beautiful, so much adventure. Jeremy was an amazing guide, very knowledgable, interested, interesting, and really really enjoying sharing what he knew with us. He kept... More

The Everglades National Park is beautiful. Couldn't believe how many alligators were right in front of us. Didn't have to go to an Alligator Park and big pay money to see them. There were several within a few feet of us. The birds and iguanas were amazing. Be prepared with your camera and good walking shoes. The boardwalk through the... More

Had the best day kayaking the mangroves, exploring the Ahinga trail and slogging through the marsh with Jeremy Bishop. Jeremy is knowledgeable and competent and we felt safe and cared for all day with each activity. The pick-up and drop-off at the Hostel, the transportation, the logistics of hauling kayaks and lunch were a flawless operation. I especially liked the... More

We booked a rental canoe online to take to the Everglades and paddle nine mile pond. The booking was confirmed by email. When we arrived at the hostel the next morning, the lady we spoke to said that she was new, and didn't know how to do canoe rentals, but her boss would be with us shortly. I gave this... More
