Overview

At Everglades Area Tours, we set ourselves apart from the competition by offering the most intimate and educational tours of Everglades National Park and the surrounding protected areas. All of our guides are formally trained Florida Master Naturalists, Environmental Educators, and Full-Time Outdoor Leaders. You won’t find any intrusive airboats here -- they’re not allowed in Everglades National Park due to the damage they inflict on the ecosystem. Instead, we offer more exclusive guided boat, kayak, and walking tours with the most experienced tour guides in the state. Our most popular eco-tour, the Boat Assisted Kayak ECO Tour, combines the best of a boat tour, a kayak tour and a walking tour into one four hour adventure! Come experience the wildly unpredictable and natural beauty of Everglades National Park with Everglades Area Tours, where adventure awaits at every turn.

We had a great trip. Ron showed and explained plenty of flowers and fauna in the mangroves. Unfortunately we just came after a dry period, so the alligators all went further north. Still we did find some, and the kids (8+11) were satisfied. Even the...More

Ron took us on a great trip through the Everglades with tons of information and knowledge. We both weren't trained in canoeing but that wasn't a problem at all. The booked 3 hour trip was about 4 hours! We can recommend it strongly!
