$315.77, tax included

Kayak deep into the western Everglades along one of our beautiful rivers with one of our National Park Service certified guides. Experience the peaceful beauty of cypress swamps and magnificent mangrove tunnels as you glide through clear waters past crocs and alligators, rare birds and a multitude of wildlife.

You’ll Kayak Into a New Day [Link to Guided Adventures Page under Adventures] on our early morning eco-tour. During our cooler season (November through April), you may also choose from our Magic of the Mangroves afternoon tour or our tantalizing Paddle Into the Twilight.

This exciting package also includes a thrilling hour-long ride on the Everglades’ most popular form of transportation: a 6-passenger airboat! These amazing flat-bottom boats allow you to experience broad mangrove tunnels and vast open sawgrass prairies, from a whole different perspective!

Of course, you also receive a generous, custom-prepared box lunch.

Each guided paddle trip spans a four-hour period and includes a kayak orientation, round-trip transportation to and from the river, and approximately 3 hours of paddle time, a snack, and water during your paddle.

*Not available Seafood Festival Weekend, which is the 2nd weekend in the month of February.

All packages are non-refundable and must be fully paid at time of reservation. Prices include all taxes but do not include gratuities.
