Perfect Trip
Highly recommend. A perfect trip from start to finish. Alli handled our booking and she was an absolute pleasure to deal with. We could not have asked for a better guide than Patrick. Knowledgeable and fun.

Incredible tour company!
Apr 2021 • Couples
I wasn't able to attend this tour due to an illness, but want to convey how the company went above and beyond to accommodate me and ultimately refund my trip fee. They are an incredibly organized, professional outfit and I look forward to rebooting my trip when next in Florida!

Fun in the mangrove in kayaks!
Mar 2021
We had a great time! It was a break in our Spring break trip, which we needed. Patrick was great, super chill, easy to talk to and knew his stuff! The waterscape was beautiful, warm, thrilling, but also super relaxed. We saw a few alligators, but also got time to take funny pictures. Definitely recommend! Oh, and signing up was such a great experience. We will definitely go with Patrick and Alli again!

Highly recommend touring the mangrove in Kayaks!
Mar 2021
This was a grand finale to the end of our spring break vacation! We had Patrick as our guide and he made sure we had an awesome tour! We were all in single kayaks and saw gators as soon as we set out - it was amazing to paddle by them! The mangrove tunnels were so cool and a nice respite from the hot sun. Patrick told us all the types of birds we were seeing - he had an amazing amount of knowledge. Our kids enjoyed a little break towards the end of the tour and he even had snacks for them. I would highly recommend this to anyone that wants to see the everglades in a new and different way!

Amazing service & beautiful scenery!!
Mar 2021 • Solo
The scenery was amazing! We saw lots of alligators, turtles, birds, fish, & other wildlife! The mangrove tunnels were other worldly! Our tour guide, Trey, was knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommend this tour!! Definitely was a check off of our bucket list :)

Due to unforeseen circumstances on the road, we were 30 mins late for our scheduled tour. We called and explained our situation and the owners were very kind and flexible. They arranged for a different guide to give us a private tour to accommodate just the two of us!

What a GREAT day! Did some easy kayaking through the mangroves and saw plenty of critters and gators to make the day exciting. Trea was our guide and he was great! He answered all of our questions and let us know all about the Everglades surrounding us. Shout out to Trea's Mama, you raised him well! I would recommend this to anyone looking for some safe adventures :)

The trip was more than I expected. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable in the plants and animals in the ecosystem. We had an up close experience of the Everglades mangroves that we were looking for and then some. Highly recommended.

Awesome relaxing experience
Feb 2021 • Friends
Our trip in Big Cypress was amazing. The guide Patrick shared his wealth of knowledge about the area and the eco system in the Everglades. We saw many beautiful birds a Barred Owl which was even a first for our tour guide. It was definitely worth it. If you have the time while in the area I recommend.
