Dolphins & Prey

Everglades National Park Dolphin, Birding and Wildlife Boat Tour (2 hours) Our 1.5 hour boat tour was during a cold spell. We did see dolphins playing in the wade of the boat, bird of prey (eagle & eaglet / Osprey with its two babies) in their nests but no wildlife. Our guide gave a small lecture on mangrove, how he became an operator for the National Park and also he did identity birds & type of dolphins we were looking at. If one decides to tour with this company, the tour boat (a high sided John boat) has 5 uncomfortable chairs and a small bench to carry 6 passengers. There are no bathroom or shade. Our 9am trip was cold with a temp of 60 degrees. Luckily, some of us had extra jackets. The services & facility at the main office was good. There’s a parking lot, bathrooms and seating area. All the participants were there on time but our guide was quite late. So our trip was short.

I am sorry that you were disappointed in your experience. But, I am happy that you enjoyed the dolphins, eagles, ospreys, little blue herons, snowy egrets, white egrets, great blue herons, tri-colored herons, royal terns and swallow-tailed kites. Unfortunately, our thermostats do not control the outside temperature. But, you were prepared and brought appropriate clothing as encouraged in your email confirmation. The boat is a 27' x 8.5' Skiff with captains style seating that is perfect for the very shallow calm waters of the 10,000 Islands. We limit each tour to just six guests on the boat for an intimate experience. I believe you may have errored in your statement. Your guide was not late, nor was your trip shortened. We only truncate trips for unexpected weather or customer's requests. Hopefully, next time the temperature will be above 60 degrees.

Beautiful area with a knowledgeable guide

Our guide was very knowledgeable. He was able to identify and tell us about every species of bird we came upon. He piloted us expertly through the shallow waters of the 10,000 islands area of the Everglades Park. On the way out, we encountered a line dolphin who was in the mood to play. He surfed in our wake for a bit, and then he jumped out and twisted, splashing the captain on purpose. It was hilarious... he did it several times before turning back. Later, we spotted a fairly large flock of white pelicans. They were huge and flew very gracefully. It was beautiful and peaceful. On the way back, our guide checked in in a kayaker to make sure he wasn't lost.

A beautiful, sunny day

I liked that this was a small boat for 4-6 passengers. We rode through 10,000 islands, saw dolphins and a lot of birds snowy white egret, blue heron, baby blue heron and osprey. We did get to see a mama osprey and her 3 babies in a nest. The tour guide was knowledgable and talked a lot about the mangroves and birds.

seeing the shell island and dolphin swimming next to our boat, guide dan very knowledgeable about area,was a little windy so did not see too much wildlife

Thank you for taking time to do this review. The wind speed and direction, as well as, the tidal stage can influence what we encounter in the brief time that we are in the wilderness. We would like you to come back. But, next time, please reserve the Everglades National Park Expedition. It is 3.5 hour tour instead of just 2 hours. Typically, the longer that you are in the Park the more opportunities to encounter wildlife you will have.
