My husband and I were the only ones on our tour, and Bob did a FABULOUS job! After boating among the 10,000 Islands we landed on Pavillion Island. There were dozens of shore birds, even a white pelican, and shells shells shells. We picked them up, admired them, photographed them, and left them. Bob knew every bird, every shell, and seemingly every inch of the island. He brought his camera with super telephoto lens along, and later shared photos with us. What fun!
We reboarded and investigated other islands from the water, then enticed a pod of dolphins to play in our wake. Two large dolphins were hunting by the shoreline - always a thrill.
Next time we’ll add kayaking to our trip, and would love to bring our grandboys on a camping trip in the islands too.

We had such a great time on this expedition. We saw so many amazing sights - from the osprey nest with their new babies to the dolphins swimming along with our boat. Captain Seth was quite knowledgeable about the Everglades and he made the trip a lot of fun. Highly recommend.

Thank you for taking the time to review your tour with Captain Seth. Maybe next time you will enjoy kayaking next to alligators on the Alligators and Orchids Kayak Tour.

With a true naturalist’s in depth, intimate knowledge of Everglades ecology and its myriad fascinating flora and fauna, Captain Seth easily shares his insight and enthusiasm while skillfully navigating amongst the countless tropical islands. My wife and I spent a delightful afternoon with one other couple and Captain Seth and many playful dolphins and exotic birds mating, nesting and feeding their young. Many photos and very memorable.

Thank you for taking the time to review your tour with Captain Seth. Next time you are in the area you might like to explore the transitional area of the Everglades on our Mangrove Tunnel Kayak Eco tour.
