“Skip Disney and go to the Everglades!”
Reviewed April 16, 2008

All I can say is AWESOME! Living in Brooklyn New York doesn't give us the chance to experience the real outdoors and our trip through the Everglades was literally a breath of fresh air.

Last time I had been to Florida was to go to Disney World and Sea World and looking back it is really a shame I didn't just skip those and head right to the Everglades.

We took a overnight trip with Shurr Adventures and had an amazing time. Our guides Justin and Alli Shurr are as knowledgeable as they are friendly. By the end or our trip we had learned many things about the Everglades and it's history, kayaked along with dolphins, saw alligators up close and camped on a beautiful little island off the Gulf of Mexico that let us see a beautiful sunset and sunrise. Plus they provided us with a great dinner right on the beach!

I can't thank Justin and Alli enough for giving us a great safe and fun trip that made us feel like we were traveling with old friends. I highly recommend Shurr adventures to anyone and really hope more people discover that a Florida vacation is not complete without going to see the Everglades.

“Everglades Adventure”
Reviewed March 26, 2008

We have just returned from a Fly Drive trip to Florida. Part of our trip was two nights in the Everglades on Chokoloskee Island. We took a tour on an airboat with Speedy Johnsons and then took an amazing tour through the everglades in Kyacks. We saw aligators in the Mangrove swamps and loads more. not at all commercial and very nice people.
A real one-to-one guide at half the cost of the Tourist places.
Our guide was Justin Shurr and he really knows his stuff. We felt completley safe under his instruction.
I think that it was probably the highlight of our trip.
