Stop At: Everglades Area Tours, 238 Mamie St, Everglades City, FL 34138
Located just a 1.5-hour drive south of Fort Myers lie the incredible Florida Everglades. On this 3.5-hour eco-tour, enjoy a kayak adventure through the lush mangrove tunnels and discover the area’s diverse ecosystem.
Your tour will begin with a brief introduction on how to maneuver your single-person kayak (no experience required). Once you feel comfortable with the kayak, paddle down the lake and arrive at a narrow entryway, where the mangrove tunnels form a canopy approximately 10 feet (3 meters) overhead. This is one of the largest mangrove forests in North America!
Follow your naturalist guide as you explore the vast and varied ecosystem and keep your eyes out for herons, egrets, ducks, spoonbills, alligators, otters and a variety of fish species. Along the way, your guide will provide an interesting, informative overview of the area and its incredible ecosystem.

Very nice 3+ hours escape in the Mangrove away from the crowd but close to nature! I would recommend!
Amazing experience with an awesome guide. Would recommend as a great way of learning about the eco system and getting up close to the inhabitants
If you are a nature lover, this kayak outing is for you! Our guide was extremely knowledgable on all plant and wild life. We saw lots of alligators, birds, orchids and the mangroves were impressive. It was very much a stop and smell the roses tour. If you want to do long distances of kayaking, you might be disappointed.
The tour was fascinating: we got exactly what we expected: Don the guide is really a professional in Mangroves and told us lots of interesting things about ecosystem of Everglades. It'd be a failure not to participate on this tour.
This tour was amazing!

It was fun. Need a restroom for us ladies!!
We had a fantastic time on our tour and managed to see a variety of the wildlife that can be found in the Mangrove forests of the Everglades - including a number of different birds and 4 alligators. The tranquillity of the mangroves and the feeling of truly being 'at one with nature' was wonderful. Our guide (Ron) was extremely informative and helpful.
