We didn't stay at Ivey House - we booked a kayak trip through them. We did the only trip that they offer during the off-season, an early morning tour. Troy was our guide and he was fantastic. He was very friendly, modest and knowledgeable. He was extremely helpful and patient with members of our group who were new to kayaking. His enthusiasm for the area, flora and fauna was evident and made the trip even more special. We saw several different kinds of birds, alligators (including babies) and interesting vegetation. It was very cool to kayak in this preserve - like nothing I've ever done before. The only criticism I have is that when I called to book, the person who took the reservation was not very friendly. There are so many choices for tours that I think the first impression is very important. A friendly and helpful reception would have made me feel better about the trip from the beginning. But once we arrived, everything was great and I would highly recommend Ivey House for a kayak tour.
