What a great day! We decided to take a private kayak tour of the mangroves rather than a noisy air boat ride when we visited the Everglades in March. After reading online reviews we decided to go with Tour The Glades. We called the day before we wanted to go, and it was no great surprise that Tod was already booked. However he offered for his associate, Jenny, to take us, and we agreed. Jenny was great. She obviously loves her job and the Everglades. She was very knowledgeable about the different birds we saw, and the ecology of the Glades. She was also very patient with us novice kayakers for almost 4 hours. The rates charged were most reasonable and the whole experience was wonderful. Next time, maybe a trip out to 10,000 islands! Well definitely call Tour the Glades again.
