Don’t miss the photo opportunities! Our skipper Peter is passionate about the Everglades environment. We all thoroughly enjoyed our trip. It’s a pity that the coach driver that took us from Noosa wasn’t as entertaining as Peter.

A really great day! I wasn’t too sure what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised. The boat journey was really relaxing and the canoeing wasn’t too strenuous or at a set pace so that was quite peaceful too. The grounds are beautiful and full of wildlife, birds and kangaroos etc. and we saw some lizards out on the water. Toby was a great, friendly and knowledgeable skipper and tour guide. Overall a really positive experience.

Great tour, good guide! We didn't see much in the way of wild life but it was a very pleasant tour nonetheless. Very laid back trip, all pick ups etc well organized. Beer half way through went down a treat.
