Details: You’ll travel with one of our naturalist guide, trained and certified by the National Park Service, on a journey-of-a-lifetime along one of our beautiful local rivers. There, you’ll experience the beauty and peace of cypress swamps and magic of mangrove tunnels in the most enchanting fresh-water habitats of the western Everglades. Waters in these areas are not affected by tides or currents, providing you the opportunity to glide silently through clear waters past alligators, rare birds and a multitude of other wildlife that call the Everglades “home”. During the warmer months, you will ‘Kayak into a New Day’ on our early morning eco-tour, or during our cooler season (November through April), you may also choose from our ‘Magic of the Mangroves’ afternoon tour or our unique ‘Paddle Into the Twilight’ evening tour as part of this wonderful adventure package. Each of our guided paddle trip spans a four-hour period of time and includes an orientation briefing, transportation from the Ivey House Inn to a local river, around 3 hours of paddle time, a snack, water and return transportation to the Ivey House.
Also included in this package is a thrilling ride (about one hour in length) on one of the Everglades’ most popular forms of transportation: a 6-passenger airboat! These amazing flat-bottom boats are able to travel through waters just an inch or two deep as slowly or rapidly as necessary to allow you to experience broad mangrove tunnels and vast open areas of sawgrass prairie. Propelled by large, powerful fans (they don’t call our provider “Speedy Johnson” for nothing!) you’ll experience the thrill of seeing beautiful Everglades’ vistas and wildlife from a whole different perspective than you did on your kayak adventure!
Of course, each of our Day-Tripper adventure packages includes a generous box lunch for each participant.
Important Note: all packages are non-refundable and must be fully paid at time of reservation. Travel insurance is recommended for those concerned about emergencies which may cause you to cancel your plans.
