My family had a Thanksgiving reunion in Key Largo, and chose to spend one day touring the Everglades and learning about that environment. Garl's Coastal Kayaking was the answer to all of our hopes for the day!!! Suzette was wonderful in working with us to ensure that our group of 13 would be able to have a private guide at... More

We had a fantastic time with Alex learning about the everglades. Wonderful full day of adventure. Without Alex we would have just driven by many of the coolest parts of the park off the beaten path. The thrill of looking for alligators and exploring the swampy cedar domes were something my family won't forget anytime soon. It was a fitting... More

This tour was truly amazing! If it's your first time in the Everglades this is a great way to get to know the national park and its wildlife. We had a super knowledgable guide Don, who could point out any animal and explain every plant we came across. He knew all the gator spots and we saw a ton of... More

If you want to see Everglades with someone truly knowledgeable, having a passion for teaching about this unique area, going on this tour is for you. We began the tour at noon, were out till after 9PM. Garl and Alex guided us through areas mostly overlooked by casual tourist, explaining, putting context to the parks ecosystem. Garls knows the critters... More

Garl's was a great experience. We had a VERY knowledge guide, Don, who took our group walking, slogging, and kayaking. He pointed out lots of flora and fauna and was able to talk about the history and ecology of the Everglades. If you appreciate nature, this is a must-do in South Florida. I recommend the full-day tour for the full... More

THIS tour to the Everglades with Garl was simply THE VERY BEST EVENT of my Florida vacation! Actually, the tour was to be cancelled as the National Park was closed due to a tropical storm that was to hit Florida. Because of my bad planning - I chose the very last possible day of my vacation - I was very... More

This was my 3rd trip with Garl's Coastal Kayaking in the Everglades. Garl bent over backwards to accommodate us on this trip, recommending a day that was less crowded where he could customize the trip for our behalf. Although the wildlife wasn't as cooperative as in previous trips and the biting bugs were out (Garl provides full coverage "bug" suits... More

We enjoyed our tour with Don. He provided us with so much knowledge along the way. We did a bit of everything from kayaking, hiking, walking through muddy water, seeing crocodiles/alligators and so much more. It was definitely an unforgettable experience and well worth the cost! I highly recommend this.

One of my favorite activities of our weekend trip to the Keys was a kayaking trip through the Everglades with Garl's Coastal Kayaking. Garl picked us up at the famous Robert is Here fruit stand, which has delicious fruit smoothies and fantastic produce. Garl personally led our excursion, taking us on a very adventurous hike through knee deep water to... More
