Take the free canoe trip that the park offers. You'll be treated to the backcountry up close--and when I went through there I saw the arrest alligator I've ever seen. Float through the sawgrass and penetrate the mangrove tunnels...you'll be glad you took this trip.

My partner and I wanted to get a little off the beaten path in the Everglades, and this canoe trail provided exactly what we were looking for. We paddled 6 miles through a mix of narrow mangrove mazes and open marshes. At a leisurely pace...More

Unless you're going kayaking or canoeing, this is just a place to look out over the water. And maybe see both crocs and gators in the same place (we didn't). And get bitten by biting flies.

Probably the best way to explore the Everglades is doing one of the canoe trails. Take enough time so you dont end up having to rush. Last time we did the nine mile pond in early January 2017, there was a large amount of seaweed,...More

This trail keeps you on your toes. Follow the numbered markers through the River of Grass. Outstanding feeling of being in the middle of nowhere. Very little wildlife sited, yet the plant life is fantastic. True quiet can be found here. I recommend the half...More

I took a two hours guided tour and it was wonderful. We saw alligators, crocodiles and plenty of different birds and plants. Kayaking in/under the mangrove was a dream-like experience. It seemed pretty easy to get lost there. I would not recommand to go on...More

Rented canoe for 4 hours at Flamingo at 7 am before it gets hot and crowded. Price was surprisingly very reasonable. Do not forget to take map of the trails. We paddled slow with stops to see wildlife, birds, ducks, small alligators and outstanding view...More

You have an option of the 2 hour or 4 hour trip. We did the 4 hour trip. It's more like 6 due to poor markers. They give you a copy of a map showing the path but there were two spots we had trouble...More

We stopped by without much planning in advance. The kayak Tour had already started. We walked around s but trying to see if there are any walking trail around the pond. Not really.
