The Everglades area is home to a varied ecosystem with the largest mangrove forest in North America. The Everglades lakes are surrounded by mangroves, which are refuges and nursery grounds for herons, egrets, stilts, ducks, wood storks, spoonbills, alligators, otters, and little fish. The Everglades National Park Mangrove Tunnel Kayak Eco-Tour takes you inside the mangrove ecosystem in a stable "sit-on-top" kayak.
Weave through the interconnecting, narrow lakes and flowing tidal creeks.
Float through tunnels in the mangrove forest, created by the dense mangrove growth up the edges and over the tops of the interlocking creeks and narrow lakes. The mangrove tunnels offer a surreal experience with the sun's rays shimmering through the canopy, the stillness of the forest vegetation and the sounds of the forest itself.
Learn a wealth of information on the local history of Everglades National Park and its wildlife and flora.
