I can not say enough about Garl's Coastal Kayaking Everglades all-day tour, which includes hiking to and in a Cypress Dome, kayaking in freshwater ponds and out into Florida Bay at sunset and finally a night hike. This was our second time to take the tour and this year (2/17) we had Garl himself lead our tour. It would have... More

On the drive we stopped to observe a mother alligator with 2 babies then we took an hour slog through mud and water along a... More

My girl friend and I had one day off during a business trip in Miami and decided to get out of the city for our day off. I had been to the Everglades ten years earlier and loved it. I enjoy nature and had hopes I wasn't getting my girl friend into something that would be uncomfortable. Garl met us... More

Our full day with Erin in the Everglades was the highlight of our week in Florida. My husband and I have kayaked with guides before, but usually the group was large and somewhat impersonal. There were only five of us, including Erin, and she was a wealth of information, as well as a joy to be with. We started with... More

This was my second trip with Garl's Coastal Kayaking. I have had both Garl and Erin as guides. They are both wonderful guides who really know the wildlife and where to see it. There was more wildlife, i.e. gators visible in February than in November. The freshwater kayak was amazing...I can see how people get lost! The sunset from kayaks... More

The day we spent with Erin in the Everglades was the highlight of our southern Florida vacation! Erin was a joy to adventure with and a foundation of information. She took us off the beaten path giving us unique experiences. Hard to pick a favorite activity but the slog through a cypress dome was amazing! We would have never waded... More

One of the best outdoor experiences ever! Thanks to Garl and Hannah who made sure this happened on my birthday. . Garl is a humble expert in the Everglades, the reptiles, plants, and the ecology of the Everglades. We started the day sloughing in the Glades walking to a cypress dome, aka alligator hole. He spent some time showing us... More

My husband and I booked our excursion through the Everglades with Garl's. Erin our guide was very knowledgeable and down to earth. She took us for a walk in the Everglades then kayaking through nine mile lake. We saw alligators, Crocodile and many birds. The sunset off the shore of Flamingo Bay was beautiful and we even saw a manatee.... More

Fantastic tour of the everglades and the bay. Garl knows where all of the most interesting and beautiful sights and wildlife are. He also has a knowledgeable answer for any questions you might ask. The weather didn't cooperate but we still had a great time.

First of all: It's definitely worth it! We booked the Everglades full day trip on short notice and luckily were able to get a tour the same day, that part was uncomplicated. We had Garl himself as our Guide and it was amazing. We had two hikes (daylight and night) and also two cayak tours, and were able to see... More
