We have visited the Everglades National Park before as a family and fell in love with its unique and stunning beauty. Our 15 year old daughter is a bird watcher and on this visit to Florida she wanted to take a kayak trip. Our outing with Randy was wonderful. Randy is knowledgeable and affable and was not condescending to our young birder. He treated her with great respect and made sure that her experience was unforgettable. We could tell that all though he has done this tour hundreds of times, he is still in love with the beauty of the Everglades and unique creatures which inhabit this magnificent environment. Our daughter was thrilled to see so many birds especially the Roseate Spoonbills which flew by and and the glorious Osprey which was diving for fish right in front our kayaks and the rookery full of squawking baby birds! We are truly thankful that we were lucky enough to have had this experience together as a family and thank Randy for making it into a treasured Florida vacation memory. We hope to return soon with our son. We are going to need four kayaks next time Randy and lots of info on kayak fishing!

We were extremely lucky to have Randy exclusively on a glorious morning. Randy was very knowledgeable and lively. We saw tons of birds and gators. Loved the mangrove

Our guide and tour was fantastic! DJ was incredibly knowledgeable about plant and animal life in the area. However, I was very disappointed with the organization at the Ivey House. Our tour was scheduled to leave at 730am, but the hotel desk staff did not arrive until 725am to check everyone in and have us sign waivers so we left late. Ivey House also did not check their online orders to know that I had booked or had already paid. So when the guide was preparing the kayaks, he was not properly informed of how many guests would be on the tour nor did he know whether they wanted single of tandem kayaks.
