Overview
More
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.

I’ve toured with this company three times now and every time has been an extraordinary experience. They are not only flexible to the needs and interests of the tour groups, but I’ve also found them to be the least environmentally-invasive ecotour option available in southwestern...More

It was a lovely trip through the Mangroves, even if we didn't meet alligators except this baby alli after 3h. Ron was a great scout & guide, explaining a lot about all the animals/birds we saw.
