Attraction details
Owner description: 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 had an excellent private tour, including up-close visits with several nesting pairs of ospreys and a saunter down a deserted beach strewn with amazing shells. Our guide was very knowledgeable regarding all the flora and fauna we saw.

We had an excellent tour guide, Ron Wofford. He shared his extensive knowledge with us. We were fortunate to see many different birds, alligators and the beauty of the mangroves. It was a fabulous day. We went on the afternoon kayak tour.

We are glad you had an excellent tour with Ron in the Mangrove Tunnels. We agree it is a beautiful area and we never get tired of seeing alligators.

This was a highlight of our trip to Florida. We learned a lot and it was so much fun. Our guide-Ron-did an excellent job and we recommend this tour to others.

Just three of us in a power boat (not one of those noisy airboats!) operated by Captain Dan. Saw many dolphins, cormorants, blue heron, a mother osprey feeding her hatchlings, and a sand reef populated entirely by a host of rare migratory white pelicans! This tour surpassed all our expectations and Dan's commentary, personable manner, and respect for the wildlife added to a memorable experience. Only sour note was the off-hand reception given to us by the person opening the office (we arrived at 8:10am for 8:30 departure)--not particularly welcoming at all.

Thank you for taking the time do a review. The 10,000 Islands are of Everglades National Park is awesome. I hope that you enjoyed the Cuban Coffee while you waited on the other guests... everyday and every tour is different in the Park. We are so lucky to live and work here.
