The Everglades national park was closed because of the gov shut down in oct but I could still do a tour in an environment similar to the everglades so I don't feel like I missed out :). It was really fun, a small intimate group which was good for my first kayaking trip because I was a bit nervous! We Kayaked through the mangroves and then out into some open water (it was a bay or something I think), saw some fishes, star fish, sponges but no crocs! Really disappointed that the park was closed but this was a good alternative. Karen the guide actually usually does tours in the national park so she was SUPER knowledgeable about the aqua life and nature. Recommend if you thought you couldn't see the 'real' everglades with the park closures!
