    Awesome trip with a very knowledgeable naturalist, Darren. I thought the all day trip would be too much time in the sun, but turned out to be perfect. Two different boat rides in two completely different environments really gave my family an understanding and appreciation of the Everglades. If you want to see gators this is the trip to book!

    We had a great guide that was able to show us the "big 7" of the tour even not being manatee season. (and yes there might have been some luck at play).
    The kayaking through the mangroves was breathtaking a feast for nature lovers as was the wildlife.
    Personally I drove 500 miles that day to join, but it was worth any single one.

    Our trip was perfect, it was a beautiful morning and Captain Dan was awesome! He’s very knowledgeable and clearly passionate about what he does. He pointed out wildlife, including a bald eagle and an osprey family, and told us about the history of the indigenous people…among other things.
    Lastly, he turned us on to Boatwreck BarBQ and Seafood, located next to Smallwood Store…yummy!!
    The early morning drive from Key Largo was well worth it!!

    Garl truly loves the Everglades and that love shows through in every aspect of this expedition. We will be back with our kids so that they can experience it. I cannot recommend it enough!

    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 30 minute tour and drove to the park ourselves. This was a worthwhile trip. The place was easy to find, but not so easy to find parking. I reserved through Tripadvisor and received instruction on what to do when we arrived. No problems with tickets and paid the National Park visit fee of $5.00 per person. Boats are big, so can handle quite a few people at one time. Boat captain was knowledgeable and described thigs as we travelled. Admittedly, it was a chilly day so animals were few and far between, but it was expected. Great ride. Walked the nature trail afterward and that was another plus to look around. Great visit overall.

    Captain josh was amazing! His knowledge and stories of the Everglades and ecosystems was so impressive! A beautiful day on the water in the 10,000 islands. We had a little bit of a slow day with marine life spotting. However, saw plenty of dolphins and had fun with them coming right up to the boat! Learned about and spotted all kinds of birds. Loved getting to stop on a key and learn about beautiful sea shells. One of the best tours we have ever done! A quick tip- we were staying in south beach Miami, when I booked the tour I hadn’t realized how far away/remote it was. It was difficult to get a ride back. So I would recommend renting a car! It makes a day trip out of it, but the Glades Haven gift shop and little tiki bar The Gator Hole are great little places to stop in after the awesome tour.

    We had lots of fun in this trip. We saw dolphins and surprisingly, manatees! The activity was well arranged, our captain and guide are super helpful and professional. This trip will be a great chance for people loving nature to admire its beauty, and for family with child to learn some interesting things about our sea.

    Outstanding experience overall. Captain Tim really made this fishing trip an unforgettable experience for me and my family (wife and two daughters). We caught a bunch of decent sized fish which Captain Tim filleted for us at the end of the trip. We will definitely do this again.

    Cannot say enough wonderful things about this company! Alli was a joy to work with on booking and changes to the reservation. And Trey!!! Well he was a fantastic guide. So knowledgable and fun to be around. Great stories and he made us all feel so safe and comfortable. It was a perfect morning and paddle with the alligators. Saw a mama and her babies and even a big boy who treated us to some bellows! Would definitely do this again!!!!

    We took this tour the morning that we got off of a cruise. Took an Uber from the port to the starting location. The driver and tour guide took care of our luggage and kept us well informed of what we were going to be doing for the day. The transition to the Everglades part of the tour was smooth and well handled. 10/10 would recommend. It's a great way to see Miami and its highlights in a compact amount of time.
