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.

Captain was knowledgeable of local plants,wildlife including birds, dolphins and manatees. A smaller 6 person boat with a quiet engine allowed us to get close (but without disrupting) to birds and dolphins without spooking them. We lucked out and saw ospreys and other wild birds, a pod of 6 dolphins, a manatee and mangroves but our original booking was to... More

Had great day shelling on two different islands, leaving from Goodland Boat park near Marco Island. Our captain took us to excellent beaches, including Shell Island, and we found most of all the area shells such as whelk, tulip, olive, murex, paper fig, sea urchins and many others. The flats boat was comfortable and would hold 6. Great family activity.... More

Took the boat/kayak/walking tour. Beautiful scenery and wildlife. Enjoyed watching the dolphins come right up to our boat and play in our wake. Saw a breathtaking sunset. Captain Dan was a very knowledgeable and personable guide. Highly recommend this trip.
