Wonderful experience, the island was completely packed with boaters cooking out and playing loud music but was still able to go a bit farther back from the beach where the mangroves are and was able to feed 5 raccoons. A special shout out to our guide Sydney who expertly handled some very rude and disgruntled customers who didn’t get to see raccoons (because they didn’t listen to her guidance). I would do it again.

We all loved the variety of the day and feel like we were immersed in the Everglades. The guides were full of great information. We highly recommend this experience.

This tour was amazing, just what we wanted! The horses were so well trained, the trails were relaxing & the views were beautiful. Highly recommend.

Our Guide named Guy was phenomenal! The tour was so beautiful and the Silver Springs was beyond perfect.

Perfect! Our guide RJ was amazing! Very impressed by his knowledge of the wildlife and manatees.
