Everglades Adventures rental boats and equipment can only be transported to your chosen paddle location by one of our regularly scheduled Ivey House shuttles. Shuttles run every hour between 7:30 am and 10:30 am, and between 1:00 pm and 4:00 pm.
Rentals ending at Everglades National Park must be returned by 5:00 pm. Rentals ending at Turner River or Seagrape will be picked up by 4:00pm. All overnight rentals must be returned to Everglades National Park by 4:00 pm (3:00 pm if returning to Flamingo). If late, additional charges will apply.
To secure a boat rental reservation, you will need to choose your destination(s) and obtain any necessary permits. Permits, if required, are necessary to complete your paperwork, which must be completed prior to any boats being shuttled. Both Everglades National Park and Big Cypress National Preserve require permits. We provide permits for Big Cypress National Preserve locations. National Park permits can be obtained at the Flamingo or Gulf Coast Visitor Centers the day before or the morning of your trip.
If you cancel a reservation, we’ll deduct a non-refundable deposit of $26.50 per boat from your refund. Rental prices are subject to change but are guaranteed once you make your reservation.
