Our tour guide, Don, was very knowledgeable and interactive. The kayaking itself was fun and a great experience. We were personally looking for something a little more unique than the typical air boat ride. Kayaking allowed us to get close to the alligators while still observing from a safe and respectable distance. Don included a lot of information about the wildlife and his personal experiences. Would definitely recommend this to anyone!
So much fun! Wish I could have done this more than once. The dolphins were beautiful. The caption and first mate were able to point out specific dolphins and their “names” and describe their behaviors (‘personalities’) that make them unique. Saw small sharks. The birds in the mangroves were beautiful. The shelling portion was a nice diversion and a rare chance to see a remote part of the area. Definitely do it!
This was a very educational and entertaining trip. Our guide, Don, was amazingly knowledgeable and obviously in love with the Everglades and Big Cypress parks. We saw not one, but two alligators, which is now a tale my grandson can tell. Really good stuff! NOTE: Buy the best bug juice you can. There are a LOT of hungry mosquitos.
The boat ride to island was beautiful. Saw several dolphin families and our driver got them to jump in the boats w as me. Very informative about shelling
Awesome guides!! Loved seeing the dolphins, birds,and the island we shelled at was magic!! Found beautiful shells!! Highly recommend!!
