Paddling through Everglades
Everglades National Park offers many paddling opportunities to explore the natural beauty of this park through freshwater marsh, mangrove forests, and the open waters of Florida Bay.
Canoe and kayak trips range from a few hours to several days depending on length and complexity of the trail.
You can bring your own canoe or kayak and launch from several locations around the park or rentals are available in the park. Alternatively you could hire a permitted guide who will outfit your trip and lead your adventure. A list of permitted guides can be found at this link.
