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. « less

Also, the price was reasonable for the time of the tour. ($55.00/person) In fact, even if you saw nothing but birds the entire trip you're on a nice, safe... More

We had a great time with Carl yesterday on our Port of the Islands, 10,000 islands boat tour. He was very attentive to all of us. He was well educated on the Everglades and capable of communicating in a way we could understand.
