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

What an AMAZING day this was. First, the price is fantastic. You can spend $150 pp to do a 9 hour Everglades eco-tour, or $100+ pp for a one hour airboat ride that wouldn't even come close. Just book this! From booking, follow up with questions, to check in - such amazing customer service. Our guides Danny and Tish were... More

We were reserved for 30th Dec but it was my mistake and I double booked with my scuba tour. We called on 30th after realizing our mistake and Bakky (hope not pronouncing her name wrong) answered and was really helpful and friendly to talk to. She postponed us to Jan 1st 2016 as we requested without any questions. She sent... More

Took the Everglades tour just before Christmas and had an amazing day. Definitely buy fruit/smoothies at Robert is Here when you meet. First part of the day we hiked through a cypress dome -- this involves wading through the water up to your knews/thighs. Sounds odd, but was utterly entrancing. Then kayaked through mangroves and saw alligators and a crocodile.... More

My daughter, 20 and I, signed up for this adventure. Starting out by meeting at the This Is Robert fruit stand, which is a sizable store, started the day off right. It is a store with great history and then Garl and staff got us signed in. We were there in early December and the weather was great. I would... More

We knew we didn't want to deal with shopping madness on Black Friday, and getting out into nature seemed the best antidote to that. We chose Garl's Coastal Kayaking for our tour, and we were not sorry! Garl, himself, led our tour, taking us through the water to a cypress dome, where we learned about the plants and animals that...

If you go to Everglades National Park, and you drive the whole length, from the Royal Palm Visitor Center down to Flamingo and Florida Bay, you can go home and tell your family and friends you saw The Everglades. And technically, that'll be true. After all, it was there, outside your window the whole way. But trust me, you haven't... More

I made the full Day Everglades Tour on the beginning of the season, unless the water level was very high Garl created an amazing tour with any kind of adventure you could have in the park! We walked thru the almost hip-high water, exploring this unique eco-sytem while Garl explained us all the details about the situated flora and fauna.... More

I did the "full day" walk/kayak with Garl in November. Although we got off to a late start (tour was supposed to leave at 11 am, we only got into the park at 1 pm), each section of the tour was fantastic. Garl is super knowledgeable and I felt safe looking for alligators and other wildlife with him. Slogging through... More

We are glad you had a great time on the trip, Neil! We apologize if the trip got off to a late start- though hiccups are rare, they occasionally do happen and we apologize for the inconvenience of it. If there's a way the trip could have been explained better on our website we would welcome the feedback! The website... More
