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 the area in general. They took care of everyone in the best possibles way...we all returned safely and with lots of stories to tell of the trips.
They also set up two additional self-guided tours. They made sure we had good equipment and knew where we were going and also how to get back. They picked up the gear after the paddle and made sure we had a good time.

This is an A PLUS guide servicee.

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.

Definitely go on this tour.

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 private tour. We were with Dillon, and had a wonderful time. We left at 7, half hour earlier than normal and saw so many birds, and alligators and beautiful plants and foliage. The equipment was good and comfortable (we've done a lot of kayaking, and are picky about this), and we would love to go back for an all-day tour.

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 hat, sun screen and bug spray. This trip is suitable for complete beginners. We jumped in the minibus for the short ride to the car park and launch site, which also had simple toilets. First we paddled under the road bridge and into the mangrove tunnels. These were fantastic and full of life. In places it was very tight, at one point we even had to split our paddles and use just one half to make our way through. Once we came to a clearing and there were two 6ft alligators right there in the water with us. An amazing thrill to see them so close. All along the river there were beautiful water lilies floating one the surface of the water and air plants covering the mangroves above us. DJ pointed out small clumps of pearl like, Apple Snail eggs laid on the saw grass just above the waterline. We headed back trough the tunnels and under the bridge again and paddling further up river as it opened up allowing a wider view of the surroundings. In the sky and tree above we saw the beautiful black and white Swallow Tailed Kite, Ospreys, vultures and small turtles sun bathing in the gathering warmth of the early morning light. The time passed so quickly and soon we were back at the launch site at the end of a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend this trip if you want to see the wildlife and immerse yourself in the true Everglades experience.
