Garl showed us the real Everglades. We booked the full day tour which included an on foot walk through cypress domes and home to named alligators on their home turf and then a fresh water kayak through a labyrinth of red mangroves filled with gators, fish and an incredible piece of unspoiled nature. We were unable to do the salt... More

This was a great tour and what an experience of the Everglades. Kayaking and walking and at one with nature. I was apprehensive about the thought of getting so close to the alligators and crocs but in reality I was totally relaxed. Garl is a great guide. We did a trudge on foot through mud and water to a 'dome'... More

We were taken out by Garl himself. He couldn't have been more knowledgeable, kind and so interesting! So glad we did the full day. There was only one other couple with us so that was nice, as were they. It really opens your eyes up to how beautiful the Everglades are! Garl really is the only person to go out... More

As most reviewers have mentioned, this is a fantastic full day of activities. Erin was an excellent guide who really went out of her way to make sure the trip was as good as it could be. The fun thing about this trip is that several of the activities were things that you simply would not be able to do... More

I did the full day Everglades with 3 other guys in the hostel I stayed and it was the most amazing tour I have ever been on! Our guide is really knowledgeable and chilled. It's a must-do if you want to escape from the crowd in regular sightseeing trails and serious about exploring the mother nature in the beautiful Everglades.

I went on a half day kayak tour with Erin a few days ago and had a blast. There was a total of three of us plus Erin, and I was really impressed with how she managed 3 people with different needs. There was myself and a married couple in the group, they had a double kayak, Erin and myself... More

My fourteen-year-old daughter and I booked a full day trip hoping to experience the Everglades up close and personal. We knew that we could walk the trails on our own, but with this trip, we were able to get into the mud with the animals and were able to kayak without fear of getting lost. We spent the day with...

We had the most adventurous afternoon with Garl. He took us deep into the swamp regions with alligator, mosquitos, and mud. It was loads of fun and extremely educational. Garl is very personable, knowledgeable, and passionate about what he does with his trips. He spends alot of time training his other guides to do the same. We saw dozens of... More

Let me start off by saying it exceeded every expectation we had. Now to be fair if your more interested in a pedestrian stroll this is not for you. This is an incredible walk through the mud and the muck. You will see birds, spiders, flora, snakes and plenty of just cool things that share our world with us. This... More

Forget noisy airboats! Garl was an excellent and really knowledgeable guide who took us for an exciting full day kayaking and walking tour in the Everglades. We came real close up to numerous alligators, and learned that it was nothing to be afraid of. No pythons spotted, but one beast of an American Crocodile! This is a real adventure and... More
