Experience what makes the Everglades so special on a 3hr kayak or canoe tour in South Florida. The Everglades area is a vast and varied ecosystem containing the largest mangrove forest in North America – you’ll be kayaking through these trees and shrubs that grow straight out of the water. Throughout the forest are brackish ‘lakes’ whose waters are a mix of ‘sweet’ fresh water and salt water. This is part of what makes the Everglades so special. These lakes, surrounded by mangroves, are refuges and nursery grounds for herons, egrets, stilts, ducks, wood storks, spoonbills, alligators, otters and a gamut of fishes.
