So lucky that I found Justin & Ali on the internet to take our family on one of the most amazing Kayak tours I have ever been on. As our guide, Justin was extremely professional, knowledgeable & loads of fun to be with. It was a magical day, experiencing some of the most beautiful & pristine areas of the everglades. Even if you have never been in a Kayak, I highly recommend Shurr Adventures!

My husband and I signed up for the Combo Trip, with a 3-hour kayak tour in fresh(er) water, through cypress swampland and along a small river running through the mangroves, and a 2-hour sunset kayak tour around the mangrove islands in salt water. I was hesitant at first, thinking it might be too expensive. It was well worth it -- we had an excellent time! Turned out we were the only ones signed up that day. Our guide Aaron was very, very good, pointing out the birds and alligators and plants and other fascinating features of the Everglades. I was a beginner, and we had a double kayak. We moved at a gentle pace, giving us time to look around and for me to figure out how to paddle. I recommend Shurr Adventures highly.

We did a half day trip in the mangrove tunnels to Paradise lake. We have paddled in many places and this trip ranked up near the top for tranquility and wild life. We even got to see scary alligators. Our guide Justin could not have been more patient and knowledgeable.Even when I asked him to identify a bird I had already asked about three times before. We saw ibis and egrets and kingfishers and pelicans and ducks and vultures and those are just the ones I can remember . You don't need any paddling experience. If you have some it is so easy you can spend the whole time ogling the wildlife and scenery.

After finishing we had lunch at the funky Camille Street Grille in Evergade City a Justin recommendation. Good local cuisine overlooking the water. Overall this experience is as far from a Florida strip mall as you can get. A fabulous day.

We went on the 2 hour trip in the Everglades with Justin.
A great guide with wide knowledge of all the animals we spotted.
Since we were travelling with two childern 8 and 11 yrs we were concerned that they might get restless, tired or scared but insted they had fun and enjoyed the adventure.
Justin had great patience with my less expereinced paddling, the speed was perfect and the kayaks really easy to handle.

Getting close to the amaizing wildlife of the Everglades is a memorable expereince for the whole family.

The genuine hospitality and friedliness of Shurr adventures made us feel safe and comfortable througout the trip even when we came close to the alligators. Justin had an amazing ability to spot animals of all kinds spiders, snakes, birds, wash bear and even an alligator baby!

Went on a 3-hour trip with Ali. Met Justin at the outset. Both are super nice and as noted in other reviews, excellent guides and naturalists. They tailored the trip to our family. Paddled in serene water through mangrove tunnels, past alligators large & small, colorful turtles. Saw beautiful snowy egrets, blue herons, spiders. Kayaks were easy to maneuver. Could have done another 3 hours. Ali was great. She even took photos of our family. Ali brought water & granola bars wh/we appreciated when we were finished. Overall an excellent experience. Suggest spraying exposed skin w/bug spray before you get in the kayak.
