A wonderful day that had our group probing the nooks and crannies of salt, brine, and freshwater glades. We saw a large variety of animal and plantlife that included monstrous alligators, grassy swamps, water birds, mangrove forests, and dolphins that swam by our boat. Our naturalist guides Stacy and Lindsay were a font of information and knowledge. It was a well-paced tour that interspersed wildlife viewing with amusing tidbits on local history and folklore, lunch at a Cuban restaurant, highlighted with stops at the world's smallest post office and Swampape "research center." The day ended with a walk through the swamp to get close-up looks at the ecosystem. I'd never seen the Everglades and this was a great way to immerse yourself in the environment. Well worth the cost. Might be too much for young kids. Better for late teens and adults. They supply bug spray, sunscreen, and water shoes. Bring a pair of leggings or light pants for the swamp walk.

The Wild Lime Adventure guides Stacy and Elijah are wonderful! After spending the day with them we learned so much. Stacy's enthusiasm about all the plant life on our wet walk was impressive. If you have never been on a walk thru a swamp you should. After initially being scared we all relaxed and enjoyed the walk and scouting for orchids! (saw 2 snakes and scared off a gator since we were so loud having fun). We did a kayak tour the following day with a different guide and were not as happy. We realized we did not need another guided tour the rest of the time in the Everglades because they taught us so much history as well as eco system details. Airboat ride is a must as well, it is very different from the wet walk and Wild Lime handles that too. We enjoyed our 3 days in the Glades!!

Thank you so very much for taking the time to leave us this really nice review. It means a lot, especially because we had to close this summer and into the early fall due to the pandemic. We are really thrilled to be back out there doing what we love - which is spending the day with people like you, who also love being out in nature. Stacy and Elijah really enjoyed your company! Please keep in touch, and hopefully we will see you again one day down the road. Fair winds.

What an amazing day! We started with the wet walk and what a different experience for us. This is something you could do on your own but we never would have done it because you need to know where the trails are and where to go. I also don't think you would learn as much going without a guide as the amount you learn about the vegetation and why/how the terrain changes is fascinating.

After the wet walk is finished you then proceed on to the first boat ride. We zipped through the mangroves of the Everglades learning about the history of the area and seeing a lot of wildlife including some dolphins and sawfish.

We were then on our way to lunch at a local restaurant in town and the food was excellent with a nice selection. One of the better lunches you could have on a full day tour.

After that we went on to our airboat ride in the sea of grass. It was enjoyable and we went to an old Indian village. We also saw a lot of alligators ranging from babies to adults.

I would be remiss not to mention our amazing guide Darren. The sheer amount of knowledge he provided on the history of the area, the ecology and the wildlife was fantastic. He really made the day come together and ensured it was a great experience.

Can't recommend this tour enough if you want to get immersed into the Everglades and Big Cypress. It's a long day but well worth it!!

I had a really enjoyable day on this tour. Darren was my tour guide. He was super knowledgeable and personable. Nice size group (4 of us). I feel like you could do this much cheaper if you just drive on your own and hire the two boat rides. The wet walk is something I would not feel comfortable doing on my own, so that’s where the value was for me on this trip.

I cannot recommend this company enough. Each and every person went out of the way for our family to have an amazing full day tour of the Everglades. Our tour included a wet hike through the Everglades, lunch, car tour and two boat tours. It was amazing. Our tour guide Stacy was a bioligist and pointed out so many plants and animals and told us the stories/histories behind what we saw. Also, they provided commentary about the history of the overall area as well. She was great with our two kids. Ben who I dealt with in the office provided great suggestions for days we weren't touring with them. They were so friendly and helpful! We definately recommend the full day Everglades tour. You will not be dissapointed! Amazing people! We went at the end of December and felt very safe given their COVID precautions and were also able to book the boat tours as a private tour for added privacy which we really liked.

This was one of the most amazing experiences of my life! The wild life was spectacular, the Everglades is mysterious and yet breathtaking but it was the tour operators that made this trip so memorable. This company is clearly a family run business that totally cares about offering the best experiences to their guests. We started the day by being picked up in a new spacious van. The tour was at half capacity due to Covid-19 (hope they will be able to survive offering these tours at half capacity). The safety measures for Covid were all quite good. Hand sanitizer was plentiful and use was encouraged regularly. Masks were required in vehicle. Once out in nature they were optional. Our guide for the day was Stacie. She is a marine biologist and was bright and funny and had us all entertained throughout the day. Furthermore, she is one of those rare people you feel like you have known your whole life as she instantly bonds with everyone. We began the wet walk with trepidation but became so immersed in the beauty of it all that we quickly got over any fear (of gators or snakes!). You have to try this experience at least once in your life! The walk was the highlight of the day for me but the two boat rides were OUTSTANDING! We really bonded with our fellow walkers and Stacie through this experience! It is obvious Stacie is friends with the boat guides because they treated us extra special. I don't think if you went on your own you would have such an experience. Lunch was delicious. Snacks and drinks were available whenever needed. We saw close up; gators, 2 snakes, every type of wading bird found in the Everglades, spoonbills, wood storks, dolphins (they played with us by following our boat), manatees, white pelicans by the dozens, and probably my favorite, the endangered sawfish. You will NOT be disappointed by this tour. Thinking back on the day, it is a great value for all that is offered.

I have to say that this is one of the best reviews we have ever received. You have us blushing. Thank you so much. I made sure Stacy saw your review. Thanks for your very kind words about her. She sincerely appreciates it. Thank you too for mentioning the special treatment you thought was applied in the tour by several of our partners out in the field as well. Yes, they do give us special treatment out there, for which we are so appreciative. We like working with them, and feel they probably think the same about us, because all of us are small businesses just trying to make it through this challenging time. Many thanks for choosing our tour, and for all of the specifics you took the time to notice during the day. We loved spending the day with you and we really hope we meet again one day. Fair winds.

One of the best experiences I had in a very long time. It is beautiful and the tour guide is so knowledgeable and professional. The 10,000 island boat tour, was incredible with Dolphins all over playing around us. The airboat ride is unique and the wet walk, is something that everyone should do. So much nature!!! So beautiful!!!

This tour exceeded our expectations! Stacy picked us up from our hotel and throughout the entire car ride, she told us about the history of the Everglades, pointed out wildlife, and shared her vast knowledge of marine biology! We started out with a one-hour airboat ride and Ryan (?) was our capable captain. The highlight of our trip was the walk through the cypress domes and learning about the plant life along the way. After lunch, we visited the oldest store and went on another boat ride through mangrove islands and open waters. I never expected to see so much wildlife!

This is an amazing trip, meticulously planned so it's all seamless. Darren was our incredibly knowledgeable guide who was also a fantastic communicator and very thoughtful about making sure everyone in the group was enjoying themselves and could ask him questions. We saw gators, dolphins, osprey, egrets, cormorants, anhingas etc (and I can now tell the difference between a cormorant and an anhinga!). The airboat and boat rides both introduced two very different parts of the ecosystem which was super interesting, but my favourite was the wet walk as it felt like being in another (magical) world. Couldn't recommend this more (oh, and the lunch was delicious - excellent choice!).

What a wonderful day! If you are a nature lover or just want to go out to Everglades with an incredibly knowledgeable guides on a very well organized tour this is it! We did whole day trip starting with wet walk and it was one of the most unique ways to experience Big Cyprus National Preserve. Seeing it from the distance doesn't give it justice. Walking through it with water sometimes up to your knees absolutely fantastic. Great guides, great organization, great day!
