Serenity and scenery supreme

Fab tour, amazing guides, sensational scenery, fabulous canoeing option and can I say the food was superb. What a magical experience at such a reasonable price.

A superb day out

Although we live in Noosa, we had never been into the Everglades. We decide to do the Eco Safari on a spur of the moment whim. We had a lovely day, Trevor the skipper was very knowledgeable and entertaining, the scenery spectacular, morning tea very welcome and we finished off the day with a nice lunch. We will be sure to recommend it to friends and visitors.

Lovely cruise marred by Canoeists

We thoroughly enjoyed the scenery of the cruise and commentary but were very frustrated by the groups that chose to canoe and wrecked the whole day. We followed them for about 1km but it was evident they were struggling. The skipper made the right decision but it meant we had to all return to our last stop, wait for them and the next group of canoers who were supposed to paddle back from Harry's Hut to have a "play with the canoes". This meant I had to sit around and wait for them, and then we rushed down to Harry's Hut, 10 min to see the hut then back on the boat and home. We wanted to explore the area around the hut but were unable to as we had to spend so much time waiting for the inept canoe folk. Next time I go on a cruise I will make sure that we're not having to wait for people to canoe dictating our day. More should be done to assess the skills of people electing the 5km canoe trip!

Eco safari

It was good, canoeing was fun, but it felt a bit rush. The schedule was a bit too tight if there was more room for spending time swimming a bit more it would have been great.
