Amazing day out in the Everglades, taking in and admiring the nature! Canoeing on the river with enough time to enjoy everything without feeling rushed, excellent swim in the refreshing water and a tasty afternoon lunch to end the day! Even saw a few kangaroos after lunch and catfish in the water right next to where we were swimming! David and Mick made the day fun and enjoyable!

I had an amazing day out the weather was perfect the views were spectacular and the tour guid and skipper were very friendly and knowledgeable. The tea break was wonderful, we were able to swim also. The canoe ride was so relaxing and I highly recommended doing both the cruise and canoe. We ended the day with a beautiful roast dinner and live music
