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.

Our first trip to Florida was made memorable with our fishing trip with Capt Jim. We caught about fourteen different kinds of fish, spent some time with the dolphins, and came back with a huge catch. Capt Jim seemed to know just what we wanted to do, was a great deal of fun, and knew a lot about the Everglades and fishing in Florida. We definitely have plans to include another fishing trip the next time we come to the state. Rose O.

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!
