This is an excellent guided tour canoeing down the canals through the mangroves. The volunteer guides are friendly, knowledgeable, and passionate about sharing their expertise. There are four stops along the way to hear interesting narration and to rest. Highly recommended.

Easy 3 hour paddle with experienced guides that love what they are doing. My wife was nervous novice but had a great time. Al skill levels will enjoy. 30.00 per adult is a great deal, and the money stays in Collier Seminole park.
