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.

We saw so much wildlife - North American White Pelicans in a group on a sandbar and in flight right over us!!! We saw osprey with a baby in... More

Captain Dan gave us the best EcoTour I have every experienced. Starts with a leisurely boat tour mixed natural history and human history. Ospreys, brown and white pelicans, sea turtles, dolphins. Then on to a low tide sand flat that was a living sand flat and can only be experienced for minutes at a time as the tides move. Then... More

This was the most enjoyable kayak tour we have experienced and we have been on a few. There was an unbelievable amount of wildlife. Alligators and birds at every turn with a guide that was very knowledgeable. He pointed out flora and fauna that we would have never seen, including several rare orchids and ferns. Forget the airboats, this is... More

Ron guided us down the Turner River in and pointed out some of the magnificent wildlife and characteristics of this unique Florida ecosystem. He was extremely knowledgable and personable and helped us enjoy a great day on the river!

This is a lovely, enchanting trip, but not if you have never been in a kayak--or if your partner hasn't. This is a difficult trip through narrow mangrove passages and was very frustrating because we had not really learned how to kayak before attempting this. Practice first. Then it will be lovely!

We took the boat Tour to the 10,000 Islands with Captain Dan and enjoyed ourselves very much. Me and my uncle were lucky to be the only one that day, so we got a private tour. We learned a lot about the nature and ecosystem of the Everglades, we saw dolphins, pelicans and other birds, we had a wonderful stop... More

Spent a lovely, sunny afternoon with Don, who was very knowledgeable and interesting. It did get a bit trickly when we entered the narrower areas with our double kayak. Might have been better in single kayaks. We are not experienced but still enjoy the afterhoon with an up close and personal visit with a family of alligators.

We signed up for a boat tour with these great people. From the first email, on to the first phone call, and continuing through our tour, everyone we dealt with was extra friendly and helpful. We are a group traveling with someone in a wheelchair who cannot get on the boat without being lifted, a potentially challenging thing to do... More

We have booked a private tour for 4 people. We got an excellent guide who showed us the amazing everglades. I recommend to book a tour in the morning. Other groups will join the everglades at lunch.

This was a wonderful afternoon! We were 4 double kayaks, led by Don, who was extremely interesting and informed about everything we came across. We saw several alligators, including a protected area for a mother and several of her babies asleep on her back. Don made sure each of us had a chance to get close enough for photos, and... More
