The Turner River was recommended to me by several local kayakers. It lived up to expectations and our guide, Dylan, exceeded them. He is a wonderful naturalist and pulling our kayaks through the mangrove tunnels was great.

Had a great sunset tour of Everglade National Park! Saw dolphins playing , toured the Everglades, saw what’s Pelican ( just amazing) and just had a lovely evening! We could bring our own wine and appetizers! It was a perfect evening!

Thanks for your review. Perhaps you can try the Alligators and Orchids Kayak Eco Tour next time. It is a totally different experience in a totally different ecosystem.

What a great way to see the Everglades. Excellent way to learn about the area including the vegetation, wildlife. Even better with Don McCumber as your guide. He is excellent and very informative. Highly recommend My husband & I did the private tour.
