capt.joe's YAK THE GLADES





Thank you for your interest in Yak the Glades.  We're a company made up of individuals whose passion and livelihood is the outdoors.  Our seasoned guides look forward to guiding you deep into the vast wilderness that is the beautiful Florida Everglades and Ten Thousand Islands.  Kayaking is the best way to experience this wondrous, fascinating landscape.  Explore the vast reaches of the Everglades and Ten Thousand Islands waterways, back bays, creeks and mangrove tunnels aboard stable and comfortable kayaks.  Kayaking allows you to peacefully observe nature and get up close and personal to a myriad of sea creatures, winged wildlife, and exotic plant life.  By quietly observing manatees and alligators from a kayak, you'll not only view them without disrupting their natural behavior but you'll get the rare opportunity to see these unique animals in the wild.   As you peacefully glide on your kayak through the watery wilderness that is the Everglades, you'll also enjoy watching flocks of ibis pass by, an osprey pluck a meal from the sea, and bald eagles flying right overhead.

Our professional expert tour guides will take you on a quest through amazing twisting mangrove tunnels and salt marshes looking for manatees, dozens of different species of migratory and wading birds, alligators and fish. Not only are our tours a treat for the senses but our kayak trips are also a great way to get your muscles moving and gliding along the water feeling one with nature.  It is a physical activity and you may work up a sweat.  We pride ourselves in taking you to special places on the tour and not just letting you float around in a large group.  That does involve some physical exertion on your part to get to the good stuff!!! Our kayak tours are 2 hours long and everyone gets their own kayak that are stable and perform well on the water.
