The kayak trip was easy to arrange with Justin via e-mail & phone. We did a 2 hr mangrove tour in single kayaks. Easy to navigate for inexperienced kayakers, including 2 children. Our guide, Lara, pointed out many alligators, birds and other interesting things. It was a very peaceful, relaxing setting. The highlight of our trip and the kids can't wait to go kayaking again. Be sure to apply sunscreen (remember the tops of your hands!)

We took the afternoon kayak tour and had a blast. Lots of widlife and plenty of alligatots up close and personal. our guide Lara was knowledgeable and helpful. Fun for the whole family including snarky older children.

Wonderful sunset kayak trip with Justin! The Shurrs were great to deal with on the phone and via email. Justin was fun and friendly and very knowledgeable. The best part was the rookery with hundreds of egrets and herons nesting and feeding and making quite a racket. We had some excitement when a large alligator popped up next to our group of kayaks, but Justin was cool and gave excellent instructions to everyone. They provide dry bags and snacks....very nice. Skip the noisy airboats, please! This is the way to see the Everglades.

We did a sunset kayak trip in the Everglades with Alli Shurr and it was the highlight of our trip. She is very friendly and incredibly knowledgeable of the local wildlife. We saw dozens of different bird and reptile species and Alli had a story for every one. We had a great experience with Shurr Adventures and would highly recommend them to anyone.

Kayaking the Turner river with Alli Shurr as our guide was the highlight of our 14 yr old grandaughter's winter break. Alli went the extra mile to fulfil our request for a custom 4 hour tour. We started from a tranquil early morning in the glades and then watched and listened to the swamp and river wake up and come alive. There were birds and critters of all shapes and sizes. Alli's extensive background, knowledge and educaion was shared with us in such a relaxed way that we never felt rushed and in particular the way that she related to Hannah our grandaughter was wonderful As grandparents in our seventies we never felt intimidated and were comfortable with the entire experience. Alli has a love of nature and the environment that just shines through. An amazing outing !!
