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

We have done half day tours in Australia and Thailand previously and loved them so booked this hoping for a similarly peaceful trip,into nature. It certainly loved up to our expectations. Our guide was really knowledgable about the local ecosystems and we had a superb trip through quiet backwaters. We saw some good bird life including green heron and lots... More

We were staying in the Ivey House so booked the combination package at the front desk as we checked in. We went on the hour long airboat trip which goes from next door at Speedy's airboat tours. Our guide Shane was awesome, he knew loads to tell us, was informative and kept the 4 of us on the boat laughing... More

Kristina handled the many personalities of our family and others in an expert manner ensuring that everyone enjoyed their trip. It didn't hurt that it was a beautiful morning. The drive to put in was short and the pace was perfect. It was a small group and Kristina said that they don't take groups out that get too large. I... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our kayak trip with John! He's knowledgeable and fun! Saw plenty of alligators and birds and lots of vegetation. He seems to know everything about the Everglades and obviously loves his job. This is a great outfit from which to take a kayak trip. Our boys, 14 and 16, definitely enjoyed it.

Our guide, Dillon was so knowledgeable. We explored plants, bugs, turtles, birds, and of course alligators. Some of us expressed interest in walking through some areas and Dillon was very accommodating. Another passenger was very nervous about being so close to the alligators and he was very good at comforting with his explanations on why we didn't need to fear... More
