Best part of a great trip to Florida. We drove two hours from Deerfield Beach for a boat-assisted kayak tour of the mangroves and it was worth every minute to get there. We have two kids (8 and 10) and they had a great time. They enjoyed the paddling and seeing the sights as well as learning about the area and the animals. The kayak trip was far-and-away better than an air-boat tour we also went on. We could see the birds up fairly close without scaring them away with roaring engines. The highlight of the tour for the kids was a stop at a small sand strip between two mangrove islands. It was great to see so many different shells with animals still inside. Our guide was knowledgeable, good with the kids, and really seemed to care about the everglades. He showed respect for the wildlife in the area and really helped make the trip memorable. Our only complaint was that the four hour trip was too short a time. We definitely could have spent a whole day at least. The kayaking wasn't strenuous so even the kids wanted to keep going.
