Overview

Go deep into Everglades National Park on a tour by motor boat, kayak, and walking trail to see some of the most remote places in the Everglades. After traveling to an isolated site by boat, paddle a kayak to a beautiful beach, and walk through coastal ecosystems including mangroves and dunes. Learn more about each plant and animal you encounter with your naturalist guide, well versed in Everglades ecology.

What to Expect

Start by leaving the crowds behind on a boat ride from Chokoloskee, Fla., into Everglades National Park where you disembark at a beautiful and remote location.

The guide helps with the basics of maneuvering a kayak before you launch into the water, paddling towards Barrier Island Beach. When you reach the shore, set out on a walking tour that takes in wrack lines, shallow tidal zones, dunes, and mangrove swamps.

Take advantage of your time with a naturalist guide to ask questions about local ecology and wildlife, watching for manatees, dolphins, sea turtles, eagles, and other shore birds throughout the day. Following the hike, paddle back to the motor boat for the return trip out of Everglades National Park.

Thank you for taking the time to review the Boat Assisted Kayak Eco Tour with Captain Dan. Glad you got to see all the wildlife you did see, unfortunately we cannot predict or guarantee any of it. The sawfish was a very uncommon site!
