This was one of the best eco-tours I've ever been on. I was lucky enough to go with Garl himself who is incredibly knowledgeable on the plants and animals found in the glades. He took us on a short hike which produced beautiful orchids and bromeliads (as well as an awesome kingsnake) in a truly unique ecosystem. Afterwards the kayaking began and I never thought I would see so many amazing animals in the span of a few hours. If dolphins, crocodiles, and sharks are your thing definitely take a tour with Garl's Coastal Kayaking.

This is a really easy drive from Key Largo or Miami and will bring you to parts of the Everglades that you'll wonder if anyone other than Don & Garl have ever been to! Our tour guide (Don) is an Everglades expert, who’s enthusiastic and friendly. He catered the tour to our fitness/ experience level and was able to answer every question we had (plus more) about the area. Don went out of his way to show us different types of plants and animals, something that I wouldn’t have felt safe exploring without someone so knowledgeable. His love for the area was obvious. It was great to get off the beaten paths of Florida to experience the Everglades, as well as the back roads and landscapes of Florida countryside. The Robert Is Here fruit stand was great! I definitely recommend this tour and think it's well worth the cost. It's an experience you'll never get anywhere else in life.
