At Everglades Area Tours, we set ourselves apart from the competition by offering the most intimate and educational tours of Everglades National Park and the surrounding protected areas. All of our guides are formally trained Florida Master Naturalists, Environmental Educators, and Full-Time Outdoor Leaders.

You won’t find any intrusive airboats here -- they’re not allowed in Everglades National Park due to the damage they inflict on the ecosystem. Instead, we offer more exclusive guided boat, kayak, and walking tours with the most experienced tour guides in the state. Our most popular eco-tour, the Boat Assisted Kayak ECO Tour, combines the best of a boat tour, a kayak tour and a walking tour into one four hour adventure!

Come experience the wildly unpredictable and natural beauty of Everglades National Park with Everglades Area Tours, where adventure awaits at every turn.

We spent Nov 26 & 27 gaining a better understanding of the Everglades. We started with The Swamp Walk with Russ, who helped us learn a lot about the land, animals and plants (some very rare) and wading in the swamp was fun. In the afternoon we took a Mangrove Tunnel Kayak tour with Robb. Quite interesting navigating the hydrilla... More

fun and interesting, I wish we saw more wildlife out on the kayak assist tour and it would of been nice if we were given binoculars so we could see the birds high up in the nests and on the sand bar. I have been to other wildlife tours that have provided these and it made a difference.

We participated in the Birding, Wildlife and Photography Eco Tour with a group of 14 people, ranging from 55 to 85 years of age, and WOW! what a wonderful experience we were treated to by our guides/master naturalists. Our group is comprised of full time and part-time residents of Naples and have taken this trip before, but we learn so... More

Our Guide took us to the Islands around Chokoloskee Island, where we started a kayak Trip. We saw a lot of Pelicans and other nice birds. The Guide told us a lot of the wildlife in the bay. Highlight was the encounter with a Dolphin.

Very friendly guide, very interesting. We went to very peacefull places and we learnt many many things about mangrove. Unfortunately, because of the bad weather we didn't see lots of gators.

With Captain Charles Wright we enjoyed four hours of spectacular bird watching, fishing, and riding through the intricate web of the 10,000 Islands near Everglades City. Dolphins, manatees, tons of birds and especially white pelicans and roseate spoonbills! Charles is an amazing naturalist and knows the area incredibly well. This is a must do if in the Everglades. Next, we... More

My wife & I plus my daughter & future son- in- law took the 3.5 hour afternoon tour of the Everglades. Captains Jerry & Fred made every effort to conduct the kind of tour we wanted. On their big, flat, and quiet skiff boat we saw almost all the wildlife we could have hoped for - numerous dolphins ( including... More

If you're looking for a pleasant, 3 1/2 hour guided tour of the Everglades with a knowledgeable guide, look no further. The travel directions we received ahead of time were accurate and helpful, as were the tips as to what to bring. We were met at the meeting place by our Captain, Heather Goff. Final payment was handled expeditiously and... More
