Four of us did the 3 1/2 hour Everglades national park tour. Captain Jason is a highly educated, very experienced ecological guide. He is involved in our local community groups for development and water issues. I’ve been going to the Naples beaches for 30 years and finally learned what some of these things are. We ended up on a sand beach island, miles away, had a great walk and learned so much. Too many dolphins to count. At times we were the only people anywhere in sight. Kudos to Jason for putting on quite a show that he is so passionate and knowledgeable on. He is an expert. I would recommend this to anybody that’s willing to spend $150 plus a good tip per person.

We did the 3.5 hour boat, walking and kayak tour yesterday. We’re a family of 4 with 2 girls aged 9 & 11. We had a great time. Our guide was hugely knowledgeable, professional, friendly and patient with my poor kayaking skills! It was super fun. Saw lots of wildlife, loved seeing the dolphins play in the waves from our boat, kayaking in the mangrove and shell hunting. We’d definitely recommend this tour. Thanks Dan and team for lasting Everglades memories.

We four joined two others for an amazing afternoon on the water leaving from Chokoloskee south of Everglades City. Our guide Don has an incredible knowledge of the ecology of the region including the bird life (we saw many osprey and two eagles, among a host of other birds) as well as the history of its white settlement and native culture. We stopped on Rabbit Island to check out the shells and a series of fascinating glimpses of sea life and the many interdependencies among the critters that have evolved over millions of years. Don topped off the tour with several dolphin sightings, including a run in which the dolphins surfed in our wake. Don's knowledgeable approach, stories about the Calusa tribe, native to the islands, and ability to point out small features of the ecology made our trip one for the memories.

We took the 3.5 hour boat/walking tour with Dan as our guide. It was comfortable as there was only one other couple on the tour. Dan is knowledgeable and able to answer questions on a wide range of topics about the everglades and respectful of the park and wildlife. The day we went, there were no dolphins present, and the birds were primary osprey, terns, egrets and pelicans, but that's the way it goes with wildlife. When we stopped on an island for a break and walk-around he found a pottery shard, possibly left from the Calusa people who lived in the region prior to the late 1700's. He also took us by an island that had been built, probably over millennia, of oyster shells. We saw no other boats/people until we were coming back - very impactful to be so isolated. Overall, a great time.

The guide was extremely knowledgeable about all sorts of things: shells and creatures and history of the Caloosa natives. One fun thing was that the dolphins liked to "surf" in the wake of the boat.
Wear, or take footwear that you don't mind getting wet, and protect yourself from the sun.

We took the Mangrove Tunnel Kayak tour in mid-January with guide Ron on the Turner River. We were lucky with the weather. Even in winter there is plenty to see. Ron was knowledgeable and congenial. The Turner River has practically no current and the kayaking was quite sedate. The split kayak paddles we were ;provided made it easy to paddle the tight channel through the mangroves.

I loved the quiet way of touring nature with respect. We saw an American Eagle's nest and the adult and baby, dolphins, and a beautiful island. Our tour guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable, identifying birds all along the way.

We did a boating and kayaking trip and the TRIP and GUIDES were AMAZING!! Sadly the owner of the company is a jacka$$ and doesn’t deserve your money. Which is a shame for the guides. We had an amazing trip. And tipped our guides well. Very knowledgeable, easy going, and fun. Hard to recommend this company based on who is behind it.

We went on boat-assisted kayak eco tour. Captain Dan was incredible and extremely knowledgeable. We all loved him! We saw lots of wildlife. We thought there would be more kayaking. It was mostly boating. Still a great tour.
