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.

Although hard to see manatees, the dolphins were about 4 feet away

A friend and I did the longer 3 hr trip with our two five year olds. It was a bit of a stretch for patience, but the shell collecting was something the kids enjoyed. The highlight of the trip was the two sets of dolphins that trailed our boat on the return. A truly magical experience --- apparently a first... More

Excellent. Captain was informing us of everything that we came to ride was relaxing and exciting too. If that makes sense. Will be visiting again. Ahoy jersey native

My son flew in from Denver last week and Gary fixed us up with Cap'n Jim and a reef fishing excursion. We had an incredible morning catching fish after fish. Cap'n Jim put us on lots of keeper Pompano, Sea Trout, Whiting, plus we got into Jack Cravale, Lane Snapper, Blue Runner, a couple of sharks and a few Lady... More

About a month ago I took my father and daughter out on the Double R's boat tour that takes you all the way out to the Gulf of Mexico via the Everglades. The tour takes roughly 2 hours and takes you out into the 10000 Islands area. If you think the Everglades is just this massive swamp with nothing beautiful... More

This was one of the most memorable trips I'll ever have with my grandma and husband! Captain Jim was amazing and was by far the best. He knew his fish and was very helpful. I never expected to have a fishing experience like I had. My husband had never caught a fish and on his first cast, he caught a... More

We were not an easy group, we had my 90 year old father-in-law who asked non-stop questions from the time we boarded the boat until the last fish was cleaned and our 9 year old son, who is well, a 9 year old boy (but we think he’s the best!). Despite the challenging passenger list, the trip was spectacular, particularly... More

Gary and his gang did another outstanding job. My family, my daughter, her two children and one of their friends went fishing again this year with Double R's and believe me we were completely "satisfied" with our trip. Everyone caught fish both in the Gulf and in the backwaters. This is the 17th year we have fished with Double R's... More

Did four fishing charters and had a great time and experience every time. From taking employees out for fishing to taking my grandson out today. Captain Jim knows the Islands and the gulf and has made our fishing experience a great one.

My 2 friends and I were lucky enough to have Captain Mike give us a tour of the Everglades. Entertaining, fun, relaxing, educational, just an all around incredible time. Captain Mike has a great sense of humor and is wonderfully versed on the wildlife in the area. He is also extremely respectful of the wildlife. Shelling on an uninhabited island,... More
