I booked this tour last minute, texting Alli and registering the evening before online. She specified a meeting point, where 3 cars gathered and followed her a few miles to the put-in site, where the kayaks were waiting for us. Alli led an excellent, informative tour upstream and down, making our time. She knows the birds, plants, and animals of the area and made sure we didn't miss a thing as we paddled. When a large alligator would't move out of our path in a narrow tunnel, she carefully positioned her kayak over him and guided us safely past. We'd definitely book with Shurr again.

What an interesting and informative trip through the mangroves! Our guide Bernie was fun and punctual and professional, taking care of all the details to get us launched. One participant was a kayaking novice. At the start of the trip, she panicked several times, getting stuck and knocking into people and was constantly near tears. Bernie calmly gave her instructions and encouragement each time so she could learn to right the situation herself. By the mid-point of the trip his help had her paddling confidently, and we were all laughing and sharing stories. We saw all the hoped for animals and the epiphyte air plants among the mangroves created a magical forest.

Ali did a wonderful job of answering all questions via text before the trip so all was taken care of before arrival. Overall, it was a fun and pleasant experience. And very professional.

Amazing event and service! If you have found this post, you probably know that there are plenty of companies to choose from for a kayak tour. Only a certain number of licenses are granted for specific launch spots, so there is friendly competition for them. Although I can’t compare the other companies, I can say that we were extremely happy with Shurr Adventures. My wife and I already have a good history with kayaking, but our guide, Evan, was friendly, knowledgeable, and experienced. He took care of everything. The sunrise event is great for those, like us, that want less sun along with beautiful skies, gators, birds, and those mangroves. I highly recommend this company and would book with them again in a heartbeat!

Our family (all beginners) had a great time exploring the mangrove tunnels. We went on the 1:30 tour, and our guide was Evan. He was punctual, polite, knowledgeable and we were made to feel comfortable from the very start! We met at the visitor center and followed his van to the launch site (covid procedure) and there we received all the gear we needed, including a rain poncho- which we ended up using. The pace was great and we saw many alligators and birds including one that Evan hadn't seen before, so that was cool! It was so quiet and beautiful- like paddling into a different world for a few hours. We would totally recommend this trip and Shurr Adventures to friends! Communication booking the trip was excellent too. Thanks!

We had a wonderful morning with Shurr adventures on a 3 hour kayak tour of the mangroves. We met at Turner River Canoe Launch since we were camping nearby. They met us on time with about 10 more guests and 2 guides. We rented two double kayaks for 2 adults and 2 kids. The guides were very knowledgable and we learned a lot about birds, the alligators, the history, and the other animals. About halfway through, the guides split us up based on ability, and some guests paddled faster while some went very slowly. It was definitely manageable for someone without any experience.

We booked the 1:30 kayak on Turner River and through the mangrove tunnels. John was an excellent guide. He was great with our 15- and 13-year-old boys and made sure everyone had a chance to lead the way on the trip. We loved seeing and hearing the baby alligators and all the wildlife. The trip was well organized and one of the highlights of our vacation. I would highly recommend it. The mangrove tunnels are a really unique experience.

We had such an amazing tour of the Everglades when we visited the second week of February, 2020. We met Doug for an afternoon (1:30pm) kayaking tour and myself and boyfriend were lucky enough to be the only ones on this expedition! Doug was very friendly and fun from the get go and was great at spotting all the wildlife (birds, frogs, fauna and of course alligators) from a distance and calling them out to us. He was an expert when had questions and he took us on a magical tour through the mangrove trees. I am a novice kayaker while my boyfriend is more experienced and we both enjoyed this tour. It is rather slow paced so that you have enough time to look at your surroundings and we stopped at certain points in order to talk about interesting animals, trees, etc. Would highly recommend this tour and we will be back! Thank you Doug (and Roberta ;p) for an amazing trip!

We had a spectacular kayak through the mangrove tunnels with John, a thoroughly experienced outdoorsman and naturalist. The staff met us promptly at our pickup point and entertained us with stories and points of interest on the drive to the launch site. All went well with outfitting us with life preservers and equipment. Our kayaks were easy to handle and maneuverable. There were four us in John's group. We got very close to birds, turtles, and alligators of all sizes. Kayaking on the quiet waterways surrounded by saw grass and mangroves was a marvel. We saw a number of nesting goshawks (fish eagles), and John was equally adept at discussing strategies for survival by trees and plants. John advised us well on how to propel our kayaks through the tunnels and how to handle our paddles.Almost in a blink our three hours on the mangrove "river" tunnels were over. It was a magical and eye-opening experience. Many thanks to John and his team!

I have wanted to kayak in the Everglades for 30 years and this trip filled all of my expectations! Doug was excellent in every way! Helpful, patient and extremely knowledgeable and experienced. We saw gators at all stages of life and never felt fearful as Doug knows their favorite spots and gave us plenty of warning! Of course they move, but he prepared us for that as well. The group size was small and manageable and the kayaks stable enough for inexperienced paddlers. They brought snacks and bug spray and everything we needed to be comfortable! I highly recommend this trip to anyone who dreams of experiencing the Everglades close up!
