Everglades National Park: Mangrove Tunnel Kayak Eco-Tour

1. Everglades National Park: Mangrove Tunnel Kayak Eco-Tour

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.

Everglades: Everglades Alligators and Orchids Kayak Eco Tour

2. Everglades: Everglades Alligators and Orchids Kayak Eco Tour

Step into a nature documentary on this easy-paced kayaking adventure with a naturalist guide through the Everglades. Spot wildlife and plants, including alligators, butterflies, air plants, and various orchids.  Beautiful butterflies, abundant bromeliads (air plants), ferns, wildflowers, and at least seven different species of wild orchids at various times of the year: see all these and more as you paddle through the picturesque Everglades.  Keep an eye out for the Everglades’ most famous resident, the American alligator. Get a better chance of observing these creatures thanks to the unobtrusive stealth of the kayaks. Stay a safe distance away, but get close enough to take good pictures. Venture into a mangrove forest and marvel at the green canopies of the mangroves that form living tunnels of bromeliad and orchid-covered branches and roots. Listen as your guides share their knowledge and experiences and encourage your involvement.

Dan is a great host, he knows his stuff perfectly, explains everything calmly and you can tell that he really gets into it! The alligators were sometimes right on the kayak, but you never had to be afraid. You could also see other animals and plants! We were a small group so it felt safe so it was very comfortable and good for asking questions.

We spent a wonderful forenoon in the two seated kayak seeing alligators (ca. 8-10), a turtle, a lot seldom plants etc. Our guide was Don who loves the nature and owns an immense amount of knowledge which he loved to share with us. Highly recommended since it was an amazing experience be that deep in nature.

very nice experience far from the tourist areas, the guide Dan is very friendly, the explanations were perfect, we see that he does this out of passion. Provide a good lotion for mosquitoes !!!

We really enjoyed the tour with Ron on April 23 at 1 p.m. on the Turner River. ... We will share pictures when we are back in Germany. Evelyn & Andrew
