Rental boats and equipment can only be transported to your chosen paddle location by one of our regularly scheduled shuttles departing from the Ivey House Everglades Adventures Hotel. Shuttles run every hour between 8:00 am and 11:00 am, and between 1:00 pm and 4:00 pm. Please be ready 15 minutes before your shuttle time.

Rentals ending at Everglades National Park must be returned by 5:00 pm. Rentals ending at Turner River or Seagrape will be picked up by 4:00pm. All overnight rentals must be returned to Everglades National Park by 4:00 pm. If late, additional charges will apply.

To secure a boat rental reservation, you will need to choose your destination(s) and obtain any necessary permits. Permits, if required, are necessary to complete your paperwork, which must be completed prior to any boats being shuttled. Both Everglades National Park and Big Cypress National Preserve require permits. We provide permits for Big Cypress National Preserve locations. Overnight back country camping permits can be obtained at the National Park visitor centers the day before or the morning of your trip.

Bringing your own kayak or canoe? We offer BYO Shuttle Service with prices based on distance and number of passengers. Please contact us for BYO Shuttle Service pricing and reservations.

Cancellation Policy

If you cancel a reservation, we’ll deduct a non-refundable deposit of $26.50 per boat from your refund. Rental prices are subject to change but are guaranteed once you make your reservation.
