Owner description: The 2.5 hour manatee viewing eco tour is the only local eco tour that starts in the heart of the Everglades, and takes only minutes to get to the 10,000 Islands and the Gulf of Mexico. The tour is located at the home of South Florida's largest herd of manatees. Viewing the eco system of the Everglades in the comfort of a covered boat is a true Everglades experience. You are likely to see manatees, alligators, dolphins, and turtles, as well as many species of rare and endangered tropical birds. Some of the tropical birds species are the Ibis, Egret, Great Blue Heron, Osprey, Pelican, and the American Bald Eagle. The tour is fully narrated by knowledgeable local Captains and their boats are stable, comfortable and USCG approved. You'll learn interesting facts on the manatee, alligator, dolphin, and tropical bird species, along with information on the Everglades.

A great time. Captain was knowledgable and patient. Our boys fished the whole time. The nature facts we learned kept us entertained.

WOW...... What do amazing 2.5hrs on the water with capt Carl. His knowledge of the animals, ecosystems, general area were fascinating. He happily told us to ask any questions & he'd answer them for us. Smooth sailing with the amazing bonus of spotting a manatee within about 3 mins of being on the water. Lots of safety advice as we... More

My wife and I visit Florida as much as possible during the winter months. One of our highlights is back water fishing with Double R's Fishing and Tour Co. We book several trips a year and have not been disappointed. You actually get two trips in one. The fishing experience is great and as a bonus we usually see dolphins,... More

We have chartered 3 trips with Gary and our guide Jim. Jim is an excellent guide and you will catch a lot of fish. My first trip was with my brother. Jim got us on a reef where we caught fish non-stop. We brought home 31 fish of 11 species. We had the same kind of luck on 2 other... More

By far the best fishing trip yet with Captain Jim!! His ability to find fish and make your trip something you'll tell friends about is unmatched. We caught over 30 fish in less than 3 hours and came home with 10 pounds of fillets. His stories are nonstop and add so much to the trip. His boat and technique aren't... More

Excellent fishing experience, our captain Jim was the best. This was the 2nd time we went with the same captain. So much fun even if you don't catch much, captain Jim is very entertaining and knowledgeable. Will definitely be doing it again when back in the area.

Our family took the 2.5 hour eco tour, we learned a lot about the everglades and the animals that inhabit them, and we saw manatees, an alligator, many dolphins, and various types of birds (pelicans, herons, egrets, vultures, etc.). Our captains were on a mission to help us see as much as we could during the trip, it was evident... More

Through Groupon, we got a fantastic deal! We saw lots of birds, dolphins, and on the way back - Manatees. Captain Carl was very knowledgeable. We spend about 30 minutes on an island, picking seashells. Highly recommended! Just bring a light jacket along.
