Tours and Tickets by Shurr Adventures Everglades
Overview
This morning tour with our very comfortable and stable kayaks is an excellent way to see the Everglades up close with a guide leading the way. Our Biologist Trained Guides/ Florida Naturalists are the top in their field and truly have a genuine passion for conservation and showing our guests this amazing area. These mangrove tunnels are truly special and different then those in nearby Marco and Naples; holding more wildlife and biodiversity. As the morning sun starts to warm up the Everglades, the alligators head to their daily sunning spots and the wading birds start to hunt as the sun illuminates the fish in the water. The morning tour is usually less crowded than the middle of the day and also gives guests an opportunity to explore more of the everglades after our tour. Once you get back from the trip there are some great nearby places to get lunch and other activities that our guide will point out. A percentage of every tour goes towards the conservation of these amazing areas!

We had the best experience and saw a bunch of alligators and wildlife! Jason was an awesome tour guide and was very knowledgeable! We did the 3 hour / 1:30pm tour and loved the entire tour! The mangroves and alligators were the highlight! Highly recommend doing this tour!
