My husband and I took this tour with Troy. He made the trip so much more fun than just kayaking. We do enjoy kayaking, but his humor and information regarding the surrounding plants and birds added to our enjoyment. It was a very quiet, peaceful ride through the Mangroves that could have lasted much longer than the 4 hours we were there. I would recommend this trip to anyone looking for a moment of peace and beauty in the midst of a busy life.

We booked an early morning kayak trip without quite knowing what we'd let ourselves in for, but we had a great time.
Our guide, Russel was excellent. He explained clearly what we were going to do & what to watch for, which was essential as there are risks for those who don't know what they're doing.
The unexpected pleasure of the trip was the historical & biological knowledge that our guide shared with us. There is so much to see on the trip, but without a guide it would be virtually impossible to get this any other way.
We thought we'd be eaten by bugs, but the deet prevented this. A better solution would have been bite proof long sleaved tops & trousers.
As well as having a relaxed trip, we saw alligators (galore), snakes, orchids, turtle, ferns, mangroves, dragonflies, butterflies, egrets, snails, spider-lillies, fossils & plenty more that we just can't remember.
Don't take a noisy, polluting fan boat, this is a great way to enjoy the Everglades.

Our guide, Troy, led us on a wonderful kayaking adventure across open lakes and beautiful mangrove tunnels. He was knowledgeable and safety conscious and explained everything we saw and was able to answer all our questions about the plants, animals and ecosystem we encountered. The 3 hour trip requires paddling only through still waters and was easily accomplished by us, who our in our late 60s. We recommend him and the company, which gives discounts if you are a guest at their B&B. It was the highlight of our stay in the Everglades.

To experience the Everglades with the Kajak was just amazing! Unfortunately the aligators were really shy this  morning, but finally Troy find us one! :-) 
Thanks to Troy for this fantastic Trip!

I took the trip offered by the Ivey House in the Everglades. If you go, ask for Russell. He was an excellent guide. Small group and a great trip!
