Full description

Step into a nature documentary on this easy-paced kayaking adventure with a naturalist guide through the Everglades. Spot wildlife and plants, including alligators, butterflies, air plants, and various orchids. 

Beautiful butterflies, abundant bromeliads (air plants), ferns, wildflowers, and at least seven different species of wild orchids at various times of the year: see all these and more as you paddle through the picturesque Everglades. 

Keep an eye out for the Everglades’ most famous resident, the American alligator. Get a better chance of observing these creatures thanks to the unobtrusive stealth of the kayaks. Stay a safe distance away, but get close enough to take good pictures.

Venture into a mangrove forest and marvel at the green canopies of the mangroves that form living tunnels of bromeliad and orchid-covered branches and roots. Listen as your guides share their knowledge and experiences and encourage your involvement.
