The best of a boat tour, a kayak tour and a walking tour! Our signature Everglades Boat Tour opens the remote areas of the 10,000 Islands and the coastal Everglades National Park to the average person! Our most popular eco-adventure, the Boat Assisted Kayak ECO Tour combines. Using a dedicated kayak transport boat you are comfortably and safely transported to the some of the most beautiful and remote areas of the Park, yet you will still be back in time for lunch, dinner or another tour.
Providing comfortable captains-style seating for maximum of six guests, our transport boat nestles six very stable kayaks in her bow. With full safety equipment, a satellite tracking system, a large sunshade and a cooler for your drinks, your captain and naturalist guide will bring you deep into the Park in safety and comfort.
A "hands-on" eco-experience is provided when we reach our destination. VERY stable, comfortable kayaks are used to get you close to the flora and fauna … closer than by any other means. (Not to worry, no previous kayaking experience is required and we do not paddle fast or far. We have one and two-person kayaks on every tour).
Every day and every tour is different as each trip is tailored to the group and the natural environment of the day ... no trip is "canned" The wildlife and the day's conditions are just that … wild. However, On any given day, you can expect to encounter a wide variety of the Everglade's wildlife - manatees, dolphins, sea turtles, bald eagles, ospreys, herons, egrets, roseate spoonbills to name a few. Imagine paddling next to a manatee or a dolphin!!!
You will continue your interpretive experience with a walking tour on an uninhabited pristine barrier island beach...an island that is seldom visited by others. There is a lot to see and a lot to experience on these barrier islands...the wrack lines, shallow tidal zones, dunes, uniquely adapted plants, mangrove swamps, many different invertebrate species, lots of shells, etc. Every day and every tide is different. After your beach experience, we are back in the kayaks to paddle back the boat for the ride home in time for a seafood dinner at a local restaurant. Be sure to bring your camera!
