Experience

Highlights
  • Enjoy an easy, eco-friendly kayaking experience in stable "sit-on-top" kayaks
  • See a variety of flora and fauna in Florida's beautiful Everglades National Park
  • Float through this unique ecosystem on creeks, lakes, and through mangrove jungles
Full description
The Everglades area is home to a vast and varied ecosystem containing the largest mangrove forest in North America. The unique Everglades lakes, surrounded by mangroves, are refuges and nursery grounds for herons, egrets, stilts, ducks, wood storks, spoonbills, alligators, otters, and a variety of cute little fish.

The Everglades National Park Mangrove Tunnel Kayak Eco-Tour takes you inside the unique mangrove ecosystem in a stable "sit-on-top" kayak (no previous experience required). Weave through the interconnecting, narrow lakes and flowing tidal creeks. Float through tunnels in the mangrove forest, created by the dense mangrove growth up the edges and even over the tops of the interlocking creeks and narrow lakes.

The mangrove tunnels make for a surreal and mystical experience with the sunlight shimmering through the canopy, the stillness of the forest vegetation and the sounds of the forest itself. Enjoy learning a wealth of information on the colorful local history of Everglades National Park and its wonderful wildlife and flora.

A sensational tour with a great guide. We were able to marvel at birds, alligators and turtles. The mangroves are beautiful. We were a very small group, which was super pleasant. Here we could enjoy the tour very close to nature. The meeting point was very easy to find. We would recommend the tour to everyone!

The kayak tour was definitely the highlight of our vacation. Our guide Don has an incredible knowledge of the special ecosystem and enchants with its great nature. We have seen many animals and Don gave us a very good overview of the different plant and orchid species. Last but not least, Don even helped us change tires because we had a flat tire. A wonderful man who gave us an extraordinary afternoon. I can highly recommend it!
