great experience to kayak in the Everglades, Randy is an excellent guide
Randy did a great job explaining the Everglades ecology and wildlife. We both enjoyed the trip even though the mosquitos were bad. Randy was prepared and gave us head nets to keep them away.
Great day and a great experience!!! I can say I survived the Everglades!!
Our guide, Dylan, was great! He was very personable and very knowledgeable about the birds and wildlife. My two daughters, 16 and 11, had a blast! The mosquito netting hats saved us from what could have been an unpleasant experience. Thanks for a fantastic trip!'
Good guide, varied route, not as much wildlife as I thought at that time of day. Just right length of time/distance for this Sr.! Well organized.
The kanu tour was awesome. We saw a lot of alligators, birds and learned a lot about mangroves and the nature. Dylan was a wonderful guide.
Our Guide Dan was awesome, the nature gorgeous - it was a great, unforgettable experience: Everglades at its very best!
Great knowledgeable guide -- a serene trip -- informative from Beginning to end... respectful of wildlife....
we had fun and it was great experience
Our Guide very friendly and helpful but knowledge-wise he was a little inexperienced(he had been leading the tour only the past 3-4 mos). Our guide the following day at Everglades National Park Boat tour had been doing this for years and was significantly more knowledgeable.
Great guiding by Neal. We thoroughly enjoyed both the location and the service. We'll stay at the location next time!
Our guide Dillon made our trip a learning experience with his knowledge of the flora and fauna of the Everglades so many great birds thoroughly enjoyable wonderful time
Everglades adventures provided professional service, good and clean accomondation, a very interesting canoetrip seeing more wild animals than you can imagine. The guide was freindly and very knowledgeable about the animals, the plants and the history of the area. We were a family of 4 with two kids age 11 and 14 and Everglades Adventure was a good experience to all.
Fun trip along the Turner river. Saw incredible wildlife including a dozen or so alligators, many variety of birds, raccoons and more! Our guide was very informative and knowledgeable and stopped to discuss the flora and fauna with us on several occasions. Highly recommended!
Our first trip to the Everglades and my 13 year old son and I wanted to try kayaking in the Everglades. A great experience with a small group and a super guide. We had a super morning and really appreciated the beauty of this area. The trip was perfect for our experience level (beginners but not 1st time) and the guide was informative and went at our pace. Highly recommend this and will be back with more family members in the future.
The Guide explained everything very good and detailed. We saw a lot of aligators, a turtle and lots of birds . .
Nice, relaxing paddle. Randy was knowledgeable and a great guide
This kayak trip was fantastic! We saw so much wildlife, including birds, alligators, and turtles. I was worried about mosquitoes, my husband was worried about a bathroom break. Once we were on the water, there were no problems with bugs and half way through the trip, we stopped at a pitpot, so it was a very easy, comfortable trip. My favorite part was paddling around the cypress trees. Our guide DJ was so knowledgeable.
A great experience with a great guide, Thank you!
What an awesome way to start a day! Our guide, DJ, was knowledgeable, personable, and helpful. It exceeded our expectations!
DJ was an excellent guide, helping to set expectations and what we were going to experience and then his enthusiasm for what we saw gave us a feeling of specialness in the special place.
Our guide DJ, best informed and well organized. Very cool and life impressing tour.
The whole 4 hour experience was wonderful from start to finish. Our guide (DJ) was excellent ensuring all on the trip could navigate some of the tighter spots on the tour. His extensive knowledge of the area, its flora and fauna and the steady flow of information he provided throughout the trip added enormously to our experience. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this kayaking trip to others.
Our guide DJ was fantastic and we had a funny, exciting and very interesting paddling-trip that morning. We had great weather, luckily a small team and we saw five or six alligators :) Thanks a lot for everything. Greetings Ruth and Jonas.
One of the best paddles of all time! Long, easy journey with lots of variation and opportunities to see wildlife. Our guide was great- informative, accommodating, friendly. Highly recommended!
DJ is a very good guide. The trip is very nice.
I loved my morning with DJ. He shared his knowledge and experience earnestly and humbly.
The guide was very kind and the trip was interesting and beautiful. DJ gave us an informative introduction before we left in the van giving us an idea of where we were going and what we could expect. He was very knowledgable of the area and wild life. I would only suggest more instruction to new kayakers and a few minutes to practice. Overall, a wonderful experience!
we had a great tour with our guide DJ, saw 4 gators, 1 croc and 2 turtles. Perfect wheather, small group of 7
