The 2.5 hour manatee viewing eco tour is the only local eco tour that starts in the heart of the Everglades, and takes only minutes to get to the 10,000 Islands and the Gulf of Mexico. The tour is located at the home of South Florida's largest herd of manatees. Viewing the eco system of the Everglades in the comfort of a covered boat is a true Everglades experience. You are likely to see manatees, alligators, dolphins, and turtles, as well as many species of rare and endangered tropical birds. Some of the tropical birds species are the Ibis, Egret, Great Blue Heron, Osprey, Pelican, and the American Bald Eagle. The tour is fully narrated by knowledgeable local Captains and their boats are stable, comfortable and USCG approved. You'll learn interesting facts on the manatee, alligator, dolphin, and tropical bird species, along with information on the Everglades.Our 3 hour Manatee Ecotour/Shelling Adventure is rapidly becoming Double R's most popular tour. This excursion has all of the elements of the shorter tour but includes a 30 minute stop at a deserted island called Whitehorse Key where our guests depart the boat for 30 minutes of shelling and exploring.

I was interested more in seeing wildlife and my husband more in going fishing. We had an awesome time on our tour which included both. We took our four kids ages 7-18 with us and our guides, Captain Jim and Shark were very patient, experienced, friendly and helpful. Throughout our four hours, we saw so many amazing birds, including a... More

Five of us went fishing for 2 days with Jimmy S and had a great trip. We had bad weather with wind and occasional rain but Jimmy found the fish. He never wasted time at an unproductive spot and treated us as friends as well as valued customers. We plan to return ASAP to fish in better conditions with Jimmy... More

Great day, caught a bunch of trout and a few sharks. Jim our guide was very knowledgable of the area and very friendly. He didn't care how much or how little (my case) you knew about fishing. He was there to help and teach you how. The even helped baiting the hooks and took the fish off whenever there was... More

This was an awesome experience. We would definitely do it again. The kids loved being on the boat and looking for shells on the island. Thank you for the experience Captain Mike.

This trip was excellent We had a peaceful day on the water with our amazing guide and who aided in our enjoyment of the nature and the wildlife along the tour. We saw all that was promised... manatees, dolphins that came close enough to the boat to touch and even a small alligator. The time we spent on Whitehorse Island... More

Our 3 hour tour with Captain Mike was fun, informative and well worth the price. He was very knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife, and we saw tons of manatees and birds, and even some alligators and a couple of bottlenosed dolphins. My husband and I went with my 88 year old mother and uncle and all thoroughly enjoyed... More

Easy to get to, if you call and follow the owners clear directions (others on our tour put the wrong address into Google maps, which is apparently a frequent occurrence). The captain was very knowledgeable about the history of the area and the ongoing developments. His delivery was very natural and didn't feel like a rote memorization of a specific... More

Our family and another, both with young girls (ages 7 & 8), had an outstanding Christmas Eve on the 4 hour Naples Eco and Backwater Fishing Tour with Captain Carl as our guide. Not knowing how the girls would tolerate boating or fishing (fishing was a first for both of them), we were drawn to the variety that this tour... More
