Guided Kayak Tours

Everglades Kayak Adventures offers amazing daily eco-paddling trips that explore unique areas of the subtropical Everglades habitat. Join us for a once-in-a-lifetime journey as you safely glide through magical mangrove tunnels and cypress ponds flush with exotic wildlife like American alligators, osprey, bald eagles, and other rare birds.

Every guided tour is led by one of our National Park Service trained naturalists who’ll share favorite hidden places along with secrets and facts about the mysterious Everglades. Each guided adventure spans a 3 or 4-hour period and includes your canoe or kayak, personal flotation device, brief paddling orientation, transportation from the Ivey House to launch point, approximately 2 to 3 hours of paddle time, a snack, water, and return transportation.

Groups are small and intimate and range from 2 to 11 participants. Children must be at least 7-years-old to participate. For all tours, children 12 and under must paddle in a tandem boat with a adult. We recommend you bring sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, shoes that can get wet/muddy, and bug spray.

Guided adventures and boat rentals are NOT offered on Seafood Festival weekend in early February.
