The padling tour was one of the most wonderful things we ever do !!!
It was an awesome time. Group was smaller. Had more opportunity to get to know the guide and kayakers.
great views, very kind guide, nice trip!
We wanted an opportunity to experience the Everglades from a kayak. Our guide DJ took time to make sure I was fitted comfortably in my seat with the bracing which was appreciated. Because of rain we got to experience a double rainbow!! Paddling by moonlight on a very calm night was very special.
Our guide Danny was wonderful. The experience of a day to twilight to dark paddle was a first. It was timed perfectly and the highlight of our trip!
Professionally guided by Danny, our tour guide. He gave us a detailed, very descriptive tour with details of the local flora and fauna. He was also very helpful in guiding us maneuver our kayak especially since this was our first time. Worth every penny. Would love to come back again.
The group was too big (4 canoes + guide) to able to listen clearly to the explanation and see the birds on tile. Only the first two canoes could get the required time and infos. This is why this is a bit disappointing.
Great experience with superb guides! Thank you so much!

My sunset kakaking experience was amazing! Our guide Dylan was friendly and highly knowledgeable about the Everglades. I'd love to go on another kayak journey, and am highly recommending to friends visiting Everglades City.
Had a great time on the Twilight Tour. Saw several gators and lots of birds. Enjoyed going through the mangrove tunnels. Dylan was a great guide!
Our second visit to Everglades adventures and a paddle tour. I think we saw less fish and animal life on the evening tour but different and plentiful birdlife compared to the Turner River trip we did last time. It was an enjoyable paddle and a sublime evening. A new moon meant a starlit night gliding over the flat calm water gives an unreal feeling with the stars reflections, almost floating in space. Really really cool was the reaction of my teenaged sons, can't be bad!!
It was the our favorite activity of our entire Everglades 3 day trip! Dustin was beyond awesome! I cannot wait to come back again.
The guide was great and it was a really fun experience. I wish we'd seen more alligators and other wildlife
It was a great experience to paddle through the mangrove tunnels and then quietly over the flat grassy open into the sunset. Then bach through the darker and darker mangroves with a rising moon - magical!
Terrific guide and a great paddle. Sunset was spectacular!! A very professional, well ran outfitter!
Dustin was very knowledgeable. Great experience
My tour guide, DJ, was awesome. From his introduction about our tour i could he loved doing these tours. His knowledge of this complex ecosystem was excellent. His respect and awl for the Everglades seemed to have a spritual relm. At the midpoint, just at sunset, he suggested we sit quietly to take in the beauty that surrounded us. He was very responsive to all of our questions. He made sure we felt safe and comfortable all during our trip.
beautiful colors with the sunset quiet and strange feeling during the night. we saw animals too.
The guide was very informative and the whole experience was relaxing and awesome, even though we did not see any alligators in daylight. Let,s hope the experience remains exclusive and the Government does not allow other operators to crowd in
