    A fantastic experience. For us a perfect balance of nature, water, interesting and educational information, thrills…and a nice lunch! Our guide Stacey was wonderful--knowledgeable, great at explaining things to us at our level, attentive to the needs and questions of everybody. Felt like having a friend as a traveling partner.
    I hope the guides are compensated well, because I noticed that not everyone tips well.
    Our TripAdvisor events have been consistently good. Thank you!

    This was a great tour. Hagen ( hopefully correct spelling) was an excellent tour guide he drove us to the everglade and along the way he explained the natural animals and plants that lived in the everglade. (snakes and alligators he even has a snake skin and rattler to pass around) When we got to the everglade the everglade tour boat captain took over and he took us on a tour of the canal which was ~1.5 hours long or so. (everglades is very big) We saw alligators, vultures, and there were a lot of bass or some fish jumping eating the flies in the water or minnows swimming away. You will see big alligators and there is the alligator show afterwards with Paul Bedard ( he had an Animal Planet show previously ) which I recommend you see. They have a small conservation of animals which they keep to educate the public because all the animals have been deemed nuisance animals and per FL law would have to be euthanized if not keep in sanctuaries. After we took a picture with a baby alligator included with package. I kinda pushed the time tables back because I ordered some food and had to wait for it but luckly when I got to the van Hagen said it was fine and we had plenty of time. I would recommend this tour for an introduction to those people who have not been to the everglades such as myself. The everglades is very large and you cant see it all in one tour also there were people with their private boats fishing and locals fishing on the other pier. Hagen stated that this is where trappers go to catch evasive pythons at night too. Ludwig the contact for booking tour was also very helpful to myself because I booked last moment the night prior and he made it all work out so please plan accordingly beforehand unlike me. :-) The ride to the everglade for the tour is about 45min +/- traffic. I high recommend all who read this to go with Banana Joe. The best part from banana joe was the narration in German too. ( so I can brush up on my German) :-)

    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!!

    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.

    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.

    We took the 2-hour guided kayak Mangrove Tunnel tour through the mangrove swamp which we were able to book just a few days in advance. We were lucky in having the guided tour all to ourselves (just the two of us) and good weather. We booked the morning time slot to avoid really hot or rainy weather. Salty Souls met us at the West Lake Park boat ramp and provided all the necessary equipment. Our guide, Arianna, was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the aquatic flora and fauna. It was enjoyable and educational to get out on the water with her guidance. I recommend this activity if you are visiting the area and I would do it again.

    Tour guide was super awesome, we didn't catch his name though :(
    He reccomended good places to go around the Keys, and also had gained the trust of an Osprey family so we could be super close :>

    Tour bus was late due to traffic, hence couldn't see the gator show fully, but driver was very friendly. The boat ride was very good, could see some alligators and other wildlife. The gator show was excellent, but had to leave since it was time to board the bus for return trip.
