Kalen was an excellent tour guide! He was well versed with the wildlife and plants through Turner Creek and pointed out Gators when we passed them. The water levels were at a record high and we got as far as we could through the trail. It was worth the money to get a private guide as the mangrove trails are narrow and going with a large group would have been difficult to navigate. The length of the tour is substantial and if you're not a veteran kayaker, be prepared to pace yourself!

My husband and I had a fantastic time kayaking with our guide Kalen. Kalen is very knowledgeable about various animals/plants in the Everglades and told us some fun history about the area as well! He was very professional and kind (even when we had to switch our tandem kayak for two single kayaks). He even recommended a great restaurant afterwards. The tour itself was beautiful. We heard a 10 foot alligator and saw a 4-6 foot alligator just feet from us! There were many various air plants and different beautiful birds all around as well. Tour was amazing! Would definitely go again if we did not live so far away!

Kalin was a fun, energetic, informative guide. He was well versed on the plant and wild life we saw on our kayak adventure down Turner River. He even brought us snacks (oranges and chocolate). We loved our tour and learned much along the way.
