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.

Can we leave 6 stars?

Capt. Jim and the crew at Double R's gave us the best day of fishing we have ever had! Jim was so patient and easy going, and his knowledge of the wildlife and ecosystem of the Everglades made our trip so much fun that it almost eclipsed the AMAZING fishing! Our friends from France were so impressed with the trip that they still talk about it! If you want a fun and relaxing, yet exciting day on a boat with someone that love to share what they love to do, these guys are the real deal!

We really enjoyed this tour. We saw many manatees, 2 gators and dolphins swimming right in front of the boat. Great Blue herons, 2 Osprey nests, and many different birds. Highly recommend this tour.

Double R's eco tours- AMAZING!!!! It is often forgotten, the opportunities to see and experience the most amazing nature on the planet right outside the door. Jason showed a genuine love for the area where he was born and raised. His knowledge and humor only added to the adventure. Tammy, the natualist, was truely a gift! Personality plus! She was as excited as the passengers when a dolphin rounded up its meal, osprey feeding her young, and of course, the manatees.
People should take their kids and grandkids on this adventure instead of Disneyworld. They would have a great time, learn a lot, and have memories galore.
