Welcome to The Everglades!

Thank you for choosing Tour The Glades! I'm Tod and I'll be your guide & host during your visit. I have ONE job, providing Private Guided Tours in the Everglades and 10,000 Islands. I'm a Florida Native and live here in the Everglades year round. Nature and the Environment have been my passion since I was a child and I bring that with me on every adventure. I have fine tuned my tours over the years and supply everything you’ll need during your trip which makes planning stress free. We supply insect repellent (if needed), sunscreen, cold bottled water and fresh seasonal fruit for every trip. We also provide professional grade dry boxes to keep your camera and other personal belongings safe. I've built the company's reputation by focusing on the Quality of our tours not the Quantity of guests. I can only do one (sometimes two) trips per day which makes each one special. My guests tend to be travel & tour connoisseurs that have done their research. They've experienced the "cookie cutter" tours elsewhere and recognize the benefits of my approach. If you end up running late for the start of your trip, no problem....we're not concerned with anyone else but you. Let me know if you have any special requests like birthdays, anniversary's, etc and we'll plan something unique. We can offer this personal service to our guests because you are the only client and receive 100% of our attention. The Private Tour / Native Guide philosophy allows my guests to experience the Everglades in a very unique and intimate way. Our tours create lifelong memories. Take a look at what we offer and decide what works best for you. Whether you're searching for Alligator, Manatee, Panther, Rare Birds or just a relaxing day in Nature....we can deliver. Start times are flexible although morning and late afternoons are best for wildlife viewing. If you have any questions just send me an email or call and together we can come up with a plan.


Kayak The Everglades

See a part of this vast wilderness that is only accessible by kayak. Glide through the freshwater ecosystem of the Everglades at your own pace as you explore the mangrove tunnels, saw grass parries, and the hardwood hammocks of the back country.

Motorboat Eco-tour

The 10,000 Islands include Everglades National Park, Rookery Bay National Estuarine, Fakahatchee Strand State Preserve and The 10,000 Islands National Wildlife Refuge. Kayaks are perfect for exploring the calm waters of the backcountry but the absolute best way to explore this vast wilderness is by motorboat.

Journey To The 10,000 Islands

Venture down an ancient river through the mangrove tunnels and saw grass prairie to the beautiful 10,000 Islands. Known as the Amazon of North America you'll glide under the canopy of our country's only subtropical wilderness.

Wilderness Hiking

Explore this ancient forest which happens to be the orchid and bromeliad capital of the nation! Home of the coveted Ghost Orchid, the Fakahatchee Strand has over 40 native orchids and 14 native bromeliad species.
