This tour is the perfect combination of cruising and canoeing. The lunch was very good. I definitely recommend it.

Everglades were amazing. Our skipper was very knowledgable on local history, fauna and flora. Could not fault any part of the tour. Totally recommend to anyone interest in beautiful scenery and a good relaxing time.

The Island is beautiful, the guide was really nice and we had a very nice group. Definitely worth every dollar, best trip so far!
