At Everglades Area Tours, we set ourselves apart from the competition by offering the most intimate and educational tours of Everglades National Park and the surrounding protected areas. All of our guides are formally trained Florida Master Naturalists, Environmental Educators, and Full-Time Outdoor Leaders.

You won’t find any intrusive airboats here -- they’re not allowed in Everglades National Park due to the damage they inflict on the ecosystem. Instead, we offer more exclusive guided boat, kayak, and walking tours with the most experienced tour guides in the state. Our most popular eco-tour, the Boat Assisted Kayak ECO Tour, combines the best of a boat tour, a kayak tour and a walking tour into one four hour adventure!

Come experience the wildly unpredictable and natural beauty of Everglades National Park with Everglades Area Tours, where adventure awaits at every turn.

We did the 2 hour boat tour; it was awesome! Paul was an outstanding guide--very knowledgeable and friendly. We had dolphins play in the boat wake, spotted a bald eagle, and walked a deserted beach. Perfect!

We went on the tour with Capt. Ed. he was very nice and knowledgeable!! He spent 3 1/2 hours with us on a private tour! It was quite wonderful experience! He knew what he was doing, knew the area and I think knew the names of every shell on earth!! You could tell he loved his job and cared about... More

We felt instantly at ease with Captain Fred. His knowledge and vast life experience added to our enjoyment. The tour was very relaxing. I liked the variety: riding on the boat, paddling the kayaks, and walking the beach. We were encouraged to pick up and examine what we found on the beach.

This is the second time we have taken a tour with Ed. Since he once worked for the FL Wildlife and Game Dept, he is passionate and knowldegable about the islands, wildlife and shelling. Each time we go out with Ed we learn something new and see a new island. We look forward to taking another trip with him later... More

Our guide was very knowledgeable about wildlife in the Everglades and took his time with the tour. Taught about the alligators and created an opportunity for us to see newborn gators and mother. Would highly recommend this tour.

Capt Fred was a very knowledgeable tour guide. We were amazed at how he knew exactly where to find and identify the many different bird and fish habitats. We saw several osprey nests and the families that lived in them. We happened to be the only ones on this tour, as the Seafood Festival was going on in Everglades City.... More

I recently ventured on the Everglades Area Tours Moonlight Paddle Tour with Don McCumber as our guide. With a seasoned nature enthusiast -- this was an excellent outing in nature that connected me with some of SWFL's fascinating eco-culture. This trip happens once a month, the week leading into a full moon so it's a great trip to plan with... More

Too expensive for a two hours ride to see only a few dolphins. It would be better to sail closer to the islands to observe more birds.

Thank you for taking the time to review the 2 hour dolphin, birding and wildlife tour. The morning you went out we had a negative low tide which prohibited the captain's ability get up closer to the islands. Usually a lower phase of the tides are best for view birds, but if it has fins, feathers or feet it moves... More
