Everglades Rentals and Adventures


Boat Rentals

Canoes and kayaks are available for rent during the cooler months of the year (November 1 – April 30). Reservations are strongly suggested to ensure availability. Ivey House guests receive a discount on all boat rentals, and a non-refundable deposit of $25 (plus tax) per boat is required at the time the reservation is made. Rental prices are subject to change, but once you make your reservation, the rate is guaranteed.

In order to secure a boat rental reservation, you will need to choose your destinations and obtain any necessary permits before we can complete your paperwork and have your boat(s) shuttled. Both Everglades National Park and Big Cypress National Park require permits. We can provide permits for Big Cypress National Preserve locations, but not for the National Park: those can only be obtained at the Flamingo or Gulf Coast Visitor’s centers on either the day before your trip or the morning of your trip.

Please note that children must be at least five years of age to use or be a passenger in any of our rental boats, and that all boats must be transported to your chosen paddle location by one of our regularly scheduled shuttles. All boats are shuttled to water locations and are subject to the fees listed on our Shuttles page. For insurance and liability reasons, rental boats cannot be transported on private vehicles under any circumstances: our boats can only be transported by Ivey House shuttles.
