We are a small family business that is recommend by Outside Magazine, Livewell Network, and we have worked with the Kratt brothers from PBS. Our kayak trips are like no other and when you paddle with us, you paddle with friends. Our groups have a small guest to guide ratio. We have a shuttle vehicle, variety of permits and paddling locations, comfortable kayaks (both single and doubles) and all of our guides are professional naturalists excited to share this wonderful place with "you" our guests.

This was our second adventure with the Shurr's company and it was just as great as the first. After kayaking through the mangroves along the slow Turner River and admiring varied flora, fauna, and crocs last time, we opted for the Sunset Kayak in the 10,000 Islands. Wow. Although this trip required more energy for paddling on and off through... More

My husband and I booked the Shurr mangrove canoe trip and enjoyed it tremendously. Our guide was very informative and we got to experience not only the solitude of our surroundings but also witnessed the beauty of the wildlife that inhabit the mangroves and wetlands.

Me and my friend chose to go on the sunset mangrove tour during April and we really loved it! Our guide Dan told us so much about the Everglades and all the wildlife in Florida. We saw a lot of alligators and even some baby alligators! I would definitely recommend this company to anyone that wants to discover Florida's wildlife.

Our family of four went kayaking through the Everglades, with Justin as our guide. It was a great way to get out and see the Everglades first hand. The scenery was beautiful and we saw so much wildlife, including lots of gators! This was the highlight of our trip to Florida. A must-do!

This was our second year with Shurr's outfit. We had a super time! This year's guide, Dan, really made for a fun and educational trip. We were looking for a "check out the nature around us" paddle and this was perfect. Lots to be surprised by. We love birds and this paddle has many kinds. Our children range from 14... More
