Very long day, but it's the only way you can encircle the whole island. Driver/tour guide was excellent and full of knowledge. Some people in the group had lunch included, but our option did not. We were brought to Whole Foods for an included continental breakfast, which was weak, so I recommend eating breakfast before you go. There we also bought an excellent picnic lunch, which I believe was even better than their included hot lunch.
The actual surfing and kayak/snorkeling experiences were outstanding. I did not realize that we had to drive from the surfing to the kayak/snorkeling takeoff points on our own. I was alone and was handed a paper with directions after surfing on how to get to the kayak takeoff. There was a vague map and tiny print directions, which I could not read while driving, so got very lost. I wish we could have gone as a group to the second site. I eventually found it and they were waiting for me, so it turned out OK.
Fort Lauderdale, Florida
In the private tour, our airboat was able to fit in small channels that the larger group boat could not go. We saw about 10 adult alligators and then a mother with about 10 babies. The babies swam up to our boat to explore, but the mother hid cautiously watching everything. Worth the extra money for a private tour.
