Tour The Glades is the Only exclusively Private tour operator in the Everglades! Quality instead of quantity is our goal...which means our guests receive 100% of our attention. We can only do one (maybe two) trips per day which makes each one very special. This approach is better for the environment and hands down the best way to explore the Everglades....just you and your own personal guide. We provide tours year round and all excursions are led by Native Naturalist Guides that provide EVERYTHING you'll need. Fresh seasonal fruit, cold bottled water and all the necessities are included. You won't need to purchase any additional items because we've thought of everything! We are priced the same as the group tour companies but only do Private Tours because Private is Best. You are our #1 priority.

We enjoyed the tour very much! Our guide Logan is a very nice guy, knowing a lot about the plants and the animals and the region in general. Gliding through the glades with him was a real pleasure! Any time again, hopefully soon..

We had a lot of fun. We saw two big gators up close, few racoons and dolphins. It's a small high speed motor boat that takes you right into the wild. You will also get to go onto an island hike and a "white sand"...More

Good communication, good guide conversation, knowledgeable guides equals a fun morning in the Glades. Don’t expect rigorous paddling or complete isolation but, I had a good experience.

I have a grandson that age. I wouldn't take him. The trip was a couple hours. That is a long time sitting in a kayak for a toddler. Mosquitoes were super thick. Off was effective. Not sure about toddler and Off.
