Attraction details
Owner description: The 2.5 hour manatee viewing eco tour is the only local eco tour that starts in the heart of the Everglades, and takes only minutes to get to the 10,000 Islands and the Gulf of Mexico. The tour is located at the home of South Florida's largest herd of manatees. Viewing the eco system of the Everglades in the comfort of a covered boat is a true Everglades experience. You are likely to see manatees, alligators, dolphins, and turtles, as well as many species of rare and endangered tropical birds. Some of the tropical birds species are the Ibis, Egret, Great Blue Heron, Osprey, Pelican, and the American Bald Eagle. The tour is fully narrated by knowledgeable local Captains and their boats are stable, comfortable and USCG approved. You'll learn interesting facts on the manatee, alligator, dolphin, and tropical bird species, along with information on the Everglades.Our 3 hour Manatee Ecotour/Shelling Adventure is rapidly becoming Double R's most popular tour. This excursion has all of the elements of the shorter tour but includes a 30 minute stop at a deserted island called Whitehorse Key where our guests depart the boat for 30 minutes of shelling and exploring.

“Best Fishing Experience Ever!!”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

Double R's Fishing is FANTASTIC!!! We were greeted by the friendly owners and we set off on our fishing and wildlife excursion with Captain Jim. The boat ride was both educational and fun, Jim's knowledge and excitement about the wildlife is second to none! We saw alligators, manatees, and countless birds. Captain Jim is a great teacher as we are fishing novices and his sense of humor had us laughing the whole 4 hour trip! Upon our return the fish were cleaned and packaged up to be enjoyed at home. The owners bid us farewell and we thanked Captain Jim for an adventurous afternoon.

“Excellent boat tour of the Everglades”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

Excellent tour: 2 1/2 hours on a gentle boat ride through the Everglades and saw so much wildlife: brown and white peligans, manatees, dolphins, osprey, herons and the list is endless: approx 20 different species of land and water animals and flight birds not to mention raccoons. Jason was our guide who is a local to the area and he has a true love to this area and it shows. He was just as excited as we were with all that we saw. He mastered that boat wonderfully and positioned us to see all the wildlife. A true young man who is a gentleman and a pleasure to see his love for the environment. We stopped at Panther Key and went shelling and got some beautiful intact shells. I would recommend this company it was a great trip.

“Great day out!”
Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

We had a great day out in the water with Double Rs Fishing. We headed out to a great spot and managed to catch over 30 fish in an hour, 17 were keepers. After making it back to the dock the fish were cleaned and cut and we were on our way. We saw some amazing things and had a great day of laughter and successful fishing.

“Excellent fishing with wild life tour as a bonus”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

We are new FL residents, and after a thorough search found Double R.

We fished with Captain Jim Schmidt 3 times, each trip we caught a lot of fish both in-shore and off-shore. During the most recent 3.5 hour in shore trip we landed over 100 fish.

Ten Thousand Islands is a beautiful area, each trip we saw manatees, alligators, osprey, spoon bills, great blue herons, night herons, hawks and kingfishers.

Captain Jim Schmidt is very knowledgeable and friendly. He goes out every day and knows where the fish are biting.
