Which Trip is the best for my group? If you want to paddle near alligators, then the mangrove tunnel kayak tour is where the gators are. The mangrove tour is the best tour for an introduction to what people think of when they think of the Everglades Swamp. Dolphins, loggerhead turtles, manatees, isolated beaches,a maze of islands and more open kayaking is in the 10,000 Islands. We have 3-hour tours for both the 10,000 Islands and mangrove tunnels, but the 10,000 Islands tour does not go out every day due to the tides and weather(please check our online calendar for availability). The 3-hour mangrove tunnel tour goes out daily and is our most popular, with that said the 10,000 islands is just as special and a true gem. We also offer full day mangrove tunnel tours and full day 10,000 Islands kayaking tours. Our full day tours are great for people who are looking to spend 5 or 6 hours on a more moderate paddle out in the Everglades and the 10,000 island full day goes to a beach for lunch. If the tides aren't right for the 10,000 Island kayak tour check out our 10,000 island boat tour to see the best part of these amazing islands with 5th generation guides.
