5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2015

We loved the tour amnd our guide was great
The only thing I can say is when info about the tour is ppsted people should be made aware that access to the boat is by ladder. I am handicapped and getting in the boat was hard but getting out was worse.

Great way to learn about the barrier islands and their complexity.

3 star rating: Worth doing April 2015

Trip was interesting as far as development of the islands through the Mangrove trees. After that there were limited things to view as far as animals to view. The beach walk was interesting as far as concho shells
and other items and the history of the river that fed Everglades. Could have made whole trip in shorter
time and probably be just as effective.
