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.
We supply cold bottled water, fresh fruit, dry boxes to protect your belongings, and insect repellant. All our kayak tours are led by local guides that conduct tours HERE all year round. Our Native & Old Town kayaks are strong, sturdy, and very comfortable. You can go in a tandem or single kayak, whichever you prefer (at no extra cost). We are one of only five tour operators permitted to kayak Turner River in The Big Cypress Preserve. We also have a kayak route in a very special section of the Fakahatchee Preserve where only a small number of guests are permitted each day.

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 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.
A Day In The Everglades
Many of our guests combine a Motorboat Tour of the 10,000 Islands with their Kayak Tour and make it a full day in the Everglades…Alligators to Dolphins! You can also combine your kayak tour with a Swampbuggy Tour in the upland areas of The Big Cypress or even a Hiking Tour into subtropical wilderness of The Fakahatchee Strand. There are a few great, family owned restaurants and other Things To Do in Everglades City & Chokoloskee Island that you should check out as well.
Everglades City is the perfect basecamp for all of our tours and other exploring. It is considered The Capital City of the Everglades and is completely surrounded by the Top 4 parks / preserves. Everglades National Park, Big Cypress Preserve, Fakahatchee Strand and The 10,000 Islands National Wildlife Refuge all meet here. While staying in Everglades City you can easily visit all these Parks as well as Collier-Seminole State Park and The Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge (30min).
