"Wonderful morning tour! Fabulous natural & cultural history and great conversations with our guide in Turner River area! Marvelous quiet kayak through mangrove tunnels! Gorgeous birds & cool alligators! Would do this again! Great value and nice equipment."

—L. from Colorado

“We kayaked the Turner River with our personal guide for three and a half hours. We learned about orchids, and cypress trees, and sawgrass, and alligators, and egrets, and why we weren't bothered by mosquitoes. We saw the Everglades in their natural state and it was beautiful."


"Fantastic journey through the wilderness. Our guide was so patient and knowledgeable and friendly. We had a great time working our way down the river and among the mangroves. He shared lots of stories about the plants and pointed out many alligators along the way. Highly recommend this activity. Well worth it if visiting the area."

—S. from Indiana

"What a unique experience to kayak near so many gators! They were much more docile than I had expected so there really was no reason to be nervous with them in the water. We saw a lot of alligators, turtles, birds and even a water snake here. I thought 3 hours of paddling might be a lot, but it was actually very relaxing and more like a float for much of it..."

—F. from Michigan
