This was a real adventure. Be ready to paddle for 2 hours, but not at all extreme, no current to fight. Guide (from NC) was great! Saw tons of gators, paddled single file through a mangrove tunnel, then turned around and did it all again at night! Spooky! Great dark view of the stars with no light pollution.

I love to kayak, so we stopped into the Ivey House to see what they had available. The guide at the desk (Caroline?) suggested the Sunset Kayak. We are so glad we did it. It exceeded our expectations for sure. We are experienced paddlers, but we did have two kids, 9 and 11. Our 11 year old paddled the entire... More

Booked this trip at The Ivey House, met up with two others and Dan our guide. I was in the middle of a 3 week road trip around Florida and I have to say this was the highlight! Saw lots of birds and alligators and paddled through some spectacular mangrove tunnels. Dan is obviously passionate about what he does and... More

We were part of a Road Scholar group staying at the Ivey House and enjoyed 3 different and diverse kayak tours with Dillon Griffin and his team. It was so much fun and a great learning experience.

Dillon and Danny are two of the best this region has to offer. They set up two guided turs for myself and friends. They also did the guiding. Safety first and adventure second but only by a little bit. We saw animals and birds that were amazing. They knew lots about the history of the places we paddled through and... More

Booked through the Ivy House as that's where we were staying it the rental company was conveniently located just across the street. We did the morning tour. Dylan and Cory were wonderful hosts for our group of five as we paddled down Turner River. Saw dozens of alligators as close as we safely could. Meandered down a tight mangrove tunnel.... More

We reserved a room at the Ivey House because we knew we wanted to do the guided kayaking the next morning. I was devastated when I saw online that they were full for kayaking the only day we could make it. I called to see if we could get on a waitlist, and the receptionist set us up on a... More

Each spring I visit Naples. I always make a point to take one day to kayak with Everglades eco adventures. They are fantastic and able to meet our large party needs. No matter the age, they make sure we are engaged and see the beauties of the everglades.

I signed up for an early morning (7:30am) 4 hour kayak trip along the Turner River with our excellent guide, DJ. There were eight of us each with our own single kayak. They do have double kayaks if you specify that when booking. They provide everything you need, kayaks, lifejackets, a drink and snack. You will need to bring a... More

Although it was fantastic to glide in the Glades on a kayak, we were really not happy about our guide and the company, Everglades Rentals & Eco Adventure. We had stated, at the time of booking, that we were total beginners so we were advised to pick single kayak. On the morning of the adventure, we stated again to our... More
