Explore The Everglades By Kayak

Private Guided Everglades Kayak Tours

Experience areas of the Everglades that are only accessible by kayak!

Glide through this delicate ecosystem at your own pace on one of our private guided Kayak Tours In The Everglades. Come explore the Mangrove Tunnels, grass prairies, and the Great Cypress Forest of the Big Cypress National Preserve and Fakahatchee Strand State Preserve

These are the absolute BEST routes in the Everglades with no motorboat traffic, urban sprawl or development….True Nature!

Bring your camera because alligators, turtles, osprey, river otters, bald eagles and a variety of wading birds call this area of the Everglades home. It’s a calm, leisurely paddle in shallow waters that’s great for both first time and experienced kayakers alike.

Our goal is to encounter the most wildlife possible so early morning and just before sunset are the best times to go. However, all of our Everglades Kayak Tours are Private so we can be flexible and start at a time that’s most convenient for you.

Everglades Kayak Tour Information

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to bring on my trip?

Definitely bring your camera and binoculars if you have them. We will have water, insect repellent, dry bags, water, and a snack for you. I always keep some backup sunscreen, but bring your favorite if you can.  

What should I wear?

You can wear, whatever is comfortable for you depending on the weather.  

Will the alligators harm us

The alligators that we encounter are wild and behave as such.  They avoid the kayaks and do not see us as prey. 

When is the best time to see wildlife?

Typically mornings and late afternoon are the best times for wildlife. Although temperature, rain, etc. can affect the wildlife as well. But you will have the advantage because we always keep you updated on current conditions. 

Where is the best place to kayak in the Everglades?

Turner River in the big Cypress Preserve and East River in Fakahatchee Preserve are by far the top two kayak locations in the Everglades. They are both diverse ecosystems, full of alligators and other wildlife.

Everglades National Park is primarily a saltwater ecosystem here and is best explored in a small motorboat.

Explore The Everglades!

Sunrise Kayak Tour

We call the “The First On The River Tour” because you will be! We’ll meet pre-sunrise and be on the water as the Everglades Awakens.  This is the BEST time for wildlife and we also beat the other big tour groups in and out!

Mangrove Kayak Tour

The Everglades is also home the the largest uninhabited mangrove forest in the world!  We explore this unique ecosystem through the natural tunnel systems connecting the upland areas of the Everglades to the Gulf of Mexico.

Full Moon & Night Kayak Tours

This is a tour you’ll want to book well in advance. We set out just at sunset and paddle into the twilight to watch the full moon rise.  Headlamps are provided as we paddle back in the darkness!  We only do private tours so once the full moon is booked we are full.

Full Day Kayak Tour

You’ll travel the ancient route used by the Calusa and Seminole Indians to travel from the upland areas of the Everglades to the rich estuaries in the bay.  This is a big day and not recommended for a first time kayak adventure.

Kayak Combo Tour

If you can get an early start you can easily combine a morning Kayak Tour with a Motorboat Tour, Hiking, Swampbuggy Tour or even an Airboat Ride.  Between your tours you can have a nice lunch in Everglades City or even bring a picnic lunch with you!

Sunset Kayak Tour

Watching the sunset is a great way to end any day!  We operate year round but the prime time for the Sunset Kayak Tour is Oct-May. Outside of that we can always attempt as long as the weather cooperates.  Another option is to see the sunset from the 10,000 islands on our Motorboat Tour.
