A definite recommend for a full day

I went on the tour in December so the weather was great! The mini-bus was about 10-ish people and everyone was nice to talk to and meet. Our guide Darren was very nice and knowledgeable and kept us on our toes with questions. We did the various boat tours and walks which all were great. We saw a number of animals although the time of the year wasn’t great for manatees (so sad), but we did see a lot of alligators, turtles, dolphins, birds, and various insects/spiders. You never know what you see but i see we did manage a fair amount. Although it was a long way, it was nicely broken down to various places of activity and rest/drive on the bus. Snacks/water on the bus were available and lunch was good (a large selection of dishes available, incl vegan). I’d definitely recommend as I got back having learned a lot, taken good pictures and happy.

Great full day tour to enjoy the Everglades!

Stacey was absolutely great & knowledgeable as our tour guide & wild limes cruise, hike, airboat full day tour was an impressive way for my girlfriend and 1 to spend out anniversary. Exploring the Everglades was very informative, from seeing the environment where the tribe lives and hearing a summary of how they ended up at this location. The seeing the trading post and where they make the fried bread the traditional way is surreal. All of the boat drivers that day were skilled and professional. Bonus for including snacks, water, sunscreen, insect repellant, and a delicious lunch (gator on the menu). Plenty of beautiful scenic nature views & wildlife spotting's. Highly recommend this tour of the Everglades.

Awesome day in Florida’s national parks!

Our guide’s name was Darren. He picked us up from the hotel and dropped us off. We experienced an airboat ride that I have never been on before and I thought it was so much fun! On one of the cruises that we have taken, we saw dolphins that played around near our boat. They kept swimming in the wake that the boat was creating. I thought Darren‘s knowledge was very extensive and we’ve learned so much about trees, plant life and the animals currently living in Florida as well as elsewhere. I would recommend this to anyone who would like to know more about Florida’s national parks.

Darren does know his stuff, that's for sure. Thanks for spending the day with us, and for sharing in our passion for these wild places! We really appreciate it. We hope to see you again one day.

Amazing Everglades tour with Lindsay
Lindsey_F
, Dec 2021
Lindsay was a phenomenal tour guide that made the entire tour and day go by fast. She offered great facts about alligators and Miami in general, where she really did keep us entertained the whole day - even the car rides. We saw alligators very up close and also saw dolphins right next to our boat during the 10,000 islands tour. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting the Everglades!

Skimming through the Everglades
Susan_D
, Dec 2021
This tour is very well run. Our biologist was very knowledgeable, and he did an excellent job of making us think about the ecological interaction between mankind and the Everglades. We did see some birds and alligators, but far fewer than we expected. The airboat and skiff boat rides were great fun, and the dry hike gave you a different perspective of life in the Everglades.

Everglades Tour
CJ_K
, Nov 2021
The trip was wonderful and the naturalist imparted so much information and was so enthusiastic . The tour included an hour cruise on an airboat through the Sea of Grass where there were so many birds and a large female alligator up close on one of the islands. While driving, we saw many birds and alligators. We had a nice Cuban lunch then stopped at a museum telling the history of developing the Everglades. Next we took an hour long boat ride through the 10,000 Islands where we saw many birds, but no manatees. It was delightful. We then took a nature walk through Big Cypress National Preserve and ended with close ups of alligators. The tour was definitely worth the price. I highly recommend it.
