Canoeing in the Everglades Reviews
Oct 25, 2006
Rent a canoe from the Flamingo visitor center/ gift shop at the south tip of the park. I think it only cost about $20.
Unfortunately, when I went, the winds were up and we were regulated to canal area. Nevertheless, we did see an alligator and had a lot of fun learning how to paddle. We had a lot of problems going straight, and it took about an hour and a half (possibly more) just to get out of the canal to the first lake. Go on a calm day and alott a full day if you want to see more varied scenery, but if you just want a relaxing paddle, tooling around the canal with a slight breeze is very enjoyable.
The everglades are a haven for canoeing and kayaking trips. If you have more time, you can do awesome mult-day trips from one end of the everglades to the other!
