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

This full day in the Everglades was absolutely fascinating.

We had a great guide, Caren, full of knowledge and experience and just wonderful preparing this exciting day for us. We went with... 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

We stayed at the Everglades International Hostel end of December and we decided to go for the Full Day tour in the Everglades! Our guide was Jeremy and he was amazing ! Even though the weather was not the best, we had so much fun walking in the cypress dome and kayaking through the mangroves. We saw couple of alligators... More

The Everglades national park was closed because of the gov shut down in oct but I could still do a tour in an environment similar to the everglades so I don't feel like I missed out :). It was really fun, a small intimate group which was good for my first kayaking trip because I was a bit nervous! We... More

If you want to see them we've got them and the "Glades" is the best place to spot the most of them. Take an airboat ride through the glades and you cannot miss them. There are any number of stopping places and rest areas, and gators farms. The variety of bird life is nothing short of amazing.
