This trip is not easy and that's okay. Day 1: We meet Dave and he gave us a quick safety brief and got us and our 7 new friends situated and in our kayaks. He let us paddle out for about an hour to observe our techniques and see who needed pointers. I was just about burnt out at that point before he explained how to use the paddle in an efficient technique which made a world of difference. We had lunch on a small island and Dave pointed out every bird, bug, animal, and plant in awesome detail. We got to our camp and setup where he prepared a delicious hot meal and we received a very personal tour of our very own Island. Day 2: We kayaked up a river where we got another amazing lunch, saw alligators, sharks, dolphins, and so many amazing birds. He again cooked a very hardy meal that kept us fueled up and ready for bed. Day 3: We packed up our camp and headed to a beach on Picnic Key, but not before exploring the nooks and crannies of all the mangroves on our way. We had an awesome Christmas feast and even defended ourselves against a marauding band of raccoons! More dolphins, sharks, and fish! Day 4: Packed up camp and paddled our way home across the beautiful mangroves of the Everglades. Seeing the National Park at 2 miles per an hour with a well informed and experienced guide is one of the best ways to see this national treasure. What's even more special is how much Dave loves his career and his passion for his craft. He's all smiles and makes even the most trying days a pleasure to experience. Best tour and camping trip I've ever been on. He also told me to say there are no bugs in my review. PS: It's the Everglades, bring Benadryl and bite cream if you react to bug bites.

Dave is a magician. If nothing else about this wonderful tour doesn’t impress you, Dave’s ability to day after day pull meals, snacks, and an evening happy hour out of these kayaks, will surely leave you wondering where it all comes from. Dave is a great guide with a palpable love for this environment, and it shows. He was always there if you needed advice, answers, or the occasional ego check. Giving each guest as much interaction, or freedom as they wanted. Dave was great with communication, even through the pandemic, and a postponed departure date, he was quick to respond to any questions we had. We all had a great time

This was an amazing trip, highly recommend for avid outdoors people looking for a unique, physically manageable but technically challenging tour. Guide Dave is extremely knowledgeable on all things everglades and has an airtight itinerary to show the breadth of this one of a kind ecosystem in just 5 days all while keeping everyone in the group well fed. Extra bug spray is recommended but this is otherwise a fantastic trip.

Dave know the Everglades and kayaking like no other. The equipment is in great shape. The food is delicious. Dave creates an excellent environment to enjoy the adventure!

The Everglades are beautiful and Dave K is the person to see them with. Dave is a knowledgeable and fun guide who puts safety first and has exquisite attention to detail. I highly recommend the five day trip to anyone who likes the outdoors and camping in tents.
