Excitement, Beauty and More

We do many large Corporate Group Kayak Tours and Group Paddle Board Tours. Stand up Paddle Boarding is generally more physically demanding and therefore those groups are generally smaller. We can also do group kayak or stand up paddle boarding lessons, team building events, birthday parties etc.

  • The minimum kayak tour group size is 10 persons.
  • Please plan in advance; our busiest season is November through May.
  • The total number of participants for any group tour must be ” locked in” a minimum of 10 days prior to the tour.  A credit card is required to hold your kayak tour reservation. Once you are “locked” in at a number, you can add but not subtract.
  • Corporate Discounts for Group Kayak Tours and Group Paddle Board Tours are available for 10 pp and up.
  • We customarily bid each group tour with an OPTIONAL  18% gratuity, that would go to all tour guides and anyone assisting in preparation for the tour.
  • We can also offer team building events such as group lessons and Stand Up Paddle Board races!

Recommended Safety Tips

Nautical Charts & Compass

Are strongly recommended for all routes. Do not rely entirely on GPS units.

Weather

Weather conditions change rapidly in the summer. Be prepared for intense sun, rain, and strong winds. Be prepared for lightning; do not stay in open water during storms, move near land staying low in your boat.

Wind/Tides

Take a tide chart and check conditions before you depart. Carry a weather radio if possible.

Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes and no-see-ums can be numerous and aggressive. Insect repellent, bug jackets, or long pants and long sleeved shirts are recommended.

Raccoons

Raccoons will do nearly anything to get food and water. Store both in hard sided containers or aboard a boat.

Water

One gallon per person per day is the minimum recommendation. No fresh water is available.

Preservation

Plants, animals and artifacts are protected in the national park. Collecting is prohibited.

Be realistic

Tides and winds can make paddling difficult. Most experienced paddlers plan to travel between 8-12 miles per day. If this is your first trip, choose a short trip and travel well marked routes.

Be Prepared

Boating in Everglades National Park is challenging. Safely exploring this area requires the ability to “read the water”, as the shallow areas are not usually marked. Knowing the draft (depth) and limits of your boat is critical, as is the ability to read and utilize nautical charts.
