Overview

Official Website: www.tourtheglades.com - Contact Number: 239-260-4577. Tour The Glades - Private Wildlife Tours is the Only all inclusive Private tour operator in the Everglades! Quality instead of quantity is our goal...which means our guests receive 100% of our attention. We can only do one (maybe two) trips per day which makes each one very special. This approach is better for the environment and hands down the best way to explore the Everglades & 10,000 Islands....just you and your own personal guide. Come with us in search of Alligator, Manatee, Black Bear, playful Dolphin and even the elusive Florida Panther! The Everglades is also a Birder's Paradise and we'll help you get your target species. We provide tours year round and all excursions are led by Local Naturalist Guides that provide EVERYTHING you'll need. Fresh fruit, cold bottled water and all the necessities are included. You won't need to purchase any additional items because we've thought of everything! Private is BEST because YOU are our #1 priority.

Pleasant boat ride with manatees, gulls, terns, an osprey, (even a fork-tailed kite) amid mangroves and little islands. Rob was a personable and able guide with a love of the flora and fauna. For viewing manatees below a sunlight-dazzled water surface be sure to bring...More

Rob was fantastic. We had a great time and saw lots. He did a great job luring the dolphins to jump behind the boat. Our 2 year old was also entertained in the front of the boat.

I have a grandson that age. I wouldn't take him. The trip was a couple hours. That is a long time sitting in a kayak for a toddler. Mosquitoes were super thick. Off was effective. Not sure about toddler and Off.
