“Amazing wildlife in the Everglades”
Reviewed 2 November 2010

My girlfriend and I, from Denmark, have just completed a 16-days roundtrip in Florida. Prior to our departure from Europe we knew that most of our time in Florida was going to be spent in urban areas and amusement parks. However - we both wanted to experience some wildlife on our journey and therefore we booked a room in The Ivey House in Everglades City for a few days, and we were NOT dissapointet. We took a 4-hour guided kayaking trip through the swamps and mangrove forrests near the Ivey House. Alligators were frequently swinning by within a few yards of our kayaks, and the tour guide, Dee explained all that we wanted to know about the many exotic birds sitting in the trees above us. We can really recommend this kayaking trip to everyone who wants to experience the nature far away from noisy airboats and polluting traffic. Later that day we also realised, that the Florida Black Bear lives in the Everglades, but that's another story. Nikolaj & Mai, Denmark.

“Up Close With Nature”
Reviewed 24 October 2010

This trip was an amazing experience, the thrill of gliding in a kayak surrounded by densely packed mangrove trees with a variety of birds flying and alligators watching as you pass by is just impossible to describe properly. Our guide was informative, witty and entertaining whilst at the same time always ensuring our safety. Yes this morning trip was scary but it was also unbelievably exhilarating and felt great, we would recommend this trip to anyone who loves animals, nature or just wants an adventure.

“alligators up close”
Reviewed 12 October 2010

The trip with our guide Dee was excellent. She led us to the most exciting spots of the Everglades. On this four-hour kayaking tour we saw all kind of wildlife: snakes, flourishing water-lilies, mangroves, birds and baby alligators on top of their mother's head. The most thrilling and exciting moment was when Dee cleared the way for us to pass one of the most gigantic alligators we've ever seen: One-Eyed-Willi...
Dee guided us through the swamps and mangroves and explained the differences of the ecosystems in a lively way. We enjoyed her explanations a lot!!!
We definitely recommend this tour and especially Dee as a guide, who made this trip very special to us.

“An exciting, informative adventure!”
Reviewed 10 October 2010

Dee was a great guide! The tour was a great time! Both my wife and I are educators. I graduated from college with a degree in science. My wife is a science teacher. Dee, our guide, not only taught us both a lot about the ecosystem through which we kayaked, but made it incredibly fun! She even put herself in harms way by shielding the group from a mama gator and her babies. She provided a safe, fun trip for all!
