Welcome to Florida Everglades Charter Adventures. A big thank you to all who offered help and concerns after Hurrican Irma. We are going great and ready for adventures into The 10,000 Islands / Florida Everglades. Our mission is to guide you through The Florida Everglades and 10,000 Islands Wilderness Refuge. This is accomplished by creating your private boat according to your interests and goals, having the appropriate vessel, and an experienced Captain and Master Naturalist as your guide and environmental interpreter. With Captain Jim at the wheel, and with his 15 years of experience exploring the Florida Everglades, your private motorboat tour will be as unique as the environment you are exploring. Whether you’re looking for an exciting Eco-tour, a day of shelling and frolic on a beautiful beach, a romantic tour for two, kayaking, or a combination of all these activities, Florida Everglades Charter Adventures is the Guide Service that can make it a reality.
