We booked a half-day Everglades tour and it was one of the highlights of our trip, an excellent way to experience a variety of ecosystems in a short amount of time. Suzette helped us with the booking and was very accommodating and flexible which was greatly appreciated. She also helped us choose what clothes and shoes to wear on the... More

During our 3-week trip in the USA we visited many places and did diffent outdoor activities. The day excursion with Garl was amazing. I already warmly recommended the experience to friends when we told them about our holidays. One of our trip's highlight!!!

For those of you interested in the Florida Bay kayak and snorkeling adventure, I highly recommend booking the trip with Garl. I went into the trip with the purpose of witnessing the beautiful mangrove underwater landscapes that I have marveled at in scuba travel diving magazines about trips to exotic locations like Indonesia. Well, I have to say that you... More

My girlfriend and I did this tour over the past weekend. It was amazing being knee deep in water, walking towards an alligator hole (expect to get a little dirty). Although the alligator wasn't there, the activity itself, the views, and the other wildlife were spectacular. I thought it was going to be a little scary (at least to an... More

What an incredible experience! My boyfriend and I were on a three week road trip around Florida and, having read the raving reviews of this tour, decided to book in for a full day adventure. I am so glad we did! Our guide, Don, met us on the morning of our tour and fitted us with some water shoes and... More

No wonder National Geographic Magazine ask this guy to guide them thru the Everglades!! Garl knows the crocs by name, the location of the most unusual plants and one of the largest bird rookeries in the park. We explored areas where no else goes and paddled the best of the mangrove creeks. Don't miss this opportunity while at the keys,... More

We are a family with two moderately fit, middle-aged adults and two sporty boys ages 12 and 15. We did only half a day and were initially apprehensive about walking knee-deep in the Glades but... That turned out to be the best part of our tour. Absolutely awesome! So interesting and exciting. Getting to the Cypress domes, spotting a gator... More

We recently spent 3 weeks touring the SE USA and our trip to the Everglades with Garl's was perhaps the highlight. Our guide, Geoffrey, was enthusiastic, informed, and passionate about his role in educating the public and protecting the Everglades. He was clear that we shouldn't expect comfort, but we should expect an adventure. He was careful in managing the... More

We visited the Keys recently and I had picked out kayaking with Garl long before we left for the trip. My boyfriend and I are both nature lovers and work in the field of biology so this was high on my list of activities to do. He took us into the Everglades and showed us all the things he loves...

My boyfriend and I drove from Miami Beach to Key Largo for a day of kayaking with Garl's and it was fantastic! Mary is a sweetheart and the experience is fun and affordable. $35 for 4 hours in a 2 person kayak was a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon - and awesome tip from Mary to stop by... More
