One of the best ways to get out and explore the Everglades. Our guide, Cory, was very knowledgeable about each part of the Everglades ecosystem. We had a blast and will always have the memories of this guided tour. Thank-you!
Everything was very well organised. We were in a small group with just four persons. We had a very good guide - DJ. Everybody was very kind and helpfull. Thank you very much, you did a good job for a unforgetable event! Regards Anna & Peter
We had a great guide and we saw the pure and beautiful nature. It was perfekt! Thank you so much for that experience.
A fantastic experience. DJ our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. I am so glad we did this, seeing the wildlife close up was amazing. The baby alligators and the beautiful birds were incredible. We are planning a trip back next February to take another kayak outing with you. I was nervous before this trip as I had not been in a kayak at all, DJ explained everything really well and was very professional. I felt confident and safe and enjoyed it emmensely. Thank you.
Our guide Danny was excellent his knowledge made the trip that more enjoyable I would highly recommend Everglades adventure to all
We participated as a family with 2 adult children. DJ was our ranger. The tour was absolutely amazing. Our ranger gave us a lot of additional information. Have seen a lot of amazing nature!
Tour was great, so was our tour guide Cory. One suggestion I have is to have two tour guides per tour, so the loading and unloading of the kayaks could be much smoother.
Guide could have been more knowledgeable about plants, animals. He could also have provided more paddling tips to those who had never paddled before
It was wonderful. We felt safe with Dillon. Thanks
Friendly staff and an excellent tour guide.
We had a great time with our guide Dustin! Very informative and exciting to get so close to the aligators
It seems so strange to go Kayaking with your kids surrounded by big Gators - but it was a pretty cool experience. My 12 year old son was worried he could not do the 4 hour paddle alone (in his own Kayak) and he was also worried about the Gators too. But one we got going he spent the whole time following our guide DJ (2nd in line) talking his ear off with a thousand questions. He has not stopped talking about the day kayaking with the Gators and his friends here in Kansas City think it is pretty awesome too. A truly unique experience that you will not get at Disney or anywhere else in America. In 20 year's I highly doubt that he will remember lying out on the beach getting a tan (which we also did this Spring Break), but he will definitely remember Kayaking in the Everglade's Mangroves and seeing 6 foot Gators swimming just 10 feet away.
Hi, the tour was amazing. To go by kajak through the swamp got us a very special impression of the everglades. We were lucky to see many animals. Our tour guide was very experianced and nice company. We learned very much about the area. On top we were lucky to be a very small group - just the three of us. Therefore we had the most outstanding time in the Everglades.
It was a great experience to paddle through the mangrove tunnels, a lot of fun but thanks to John also things to learn.
