About Us


Everglades City sits perfectly at the end of the Wilderness Waterway that links the Everglades to Flamingo City. With activities such as kayak fishing in the backcountry, canoeing through tunnels, guided paddling excursions, hiking and biking around prairies and wetlands, or observing the diversity of the cypress hammocks from the perspective of a floatplane, many visitors and locals alike flock to Everglades City to experience it all!

As the most popular visitor attraction, the 10,000 Islands Boat Tour lasts 90 minutes and takes visitors six miles out to the Gulf of Mexico through the islands in Chokoloskee Bay. Itis one of four tours that leave from the Gulf Coast Visitor Center at Everglades National Park, Everglades City, FL. This tour provides the opportunity to see a multitude of wildlife: manatees, bald eagles, roseate, ospreys, and spoonbills, to name a few. Pack your camera for a chance to see the dolphins that love to jump and play by the tour boat!

Located half an hour from Naples and Marco Island; two hours from Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Ft. Myers, and West Palm Beach. Everglades City is an excellent destination for a day trip or a week-long stay. Combine tours in a single day or over several days and enjoy the small-town ambiance of the waterside community. Be it on foot, bicycle, kayak, powerboat, or airplane. Everglades Area Tours provides a complete Everglades experience.

We stumbled upon the Everglades Florida Adventures tour when we visited the small Gulf National Park center. The time offered for the tour fit our schedule perfectly so we signed up. The experience was one of the high points of our Florida vacation. The boat was comfortable, and the crew was skilled and knowledgeable. They told us what to look for and where to look. On this trip we saw several dolphins, a flock of brown pelicans, a royal tern, and a manatee and her calf. We learned about the history and the ecology of this area as well. We really felt that our tour with Everglades Florida Adventures was time and money well spent, and we would book another on our next visit to the Everglades.

What a great adventure! The crew was great. We saw manatee, a sea turtle, dolphins, osprey! One guest had been there 4 times and I can understand why!
