The 2.5 hour manatee viewing eco tour is the only local eco tour that starts in the heart of the Everglades, and takes only minutes to get to the 10,000 Islands and the Gulf of Mexico. The tour is located at the home of South Florida's largest herd of manatees. Viewing the eco system of the Everglades in the comfort of a covered boat is a true Everglades experience. You are likely to see manatees, alligators, dolphins, and turtles, as well as many species of rare and endangered tropical birds. Some of the tropical birds species are the Ibis, Egret, Great Blue Heron, Osprey, Pelican, and the American Bald Eagle. The tour is fully narrated by knowledgeable local Captains and their boats are stable, comfortable and USCG approved. You'll learn interesting facts on the manatee, alligator, dolphin, and tropical bird species, along with information on the Everglades.Our 3 hour Manatee Ecotour/Shelling Adventure is rapidly becoming Double R's most popular tour. This excursion has all of the elements of the shorter tour but includes a 30 minute stop at a deserted island called Whitehorse Key where our guests depart the boat for 30 minutes of shelling and exploring.

Birds, Gators and a free dolphin show. There is simply no better way to see and learn about the beauty of the everglades that Double R's. No air boats here. Instead you get an amazing guided tour of the everglades on a very comfortable and stable boat by a captain who should have been a teacher. Our guide took us... More

We booked a 3 hour trip and had a lot of fun! Only saw 1 manatee that was deep in the water, but then saw some HUGE gators, at least 5 dolphins, and tons of birds. The trip to the island to shell was fun, and even though it wasn't what I expected, we did manage to find some treasures... More

After a week of theme parks in Orlando, we headed to Naples for something a little more serene. As a family of 4, including a son of 21 and a daughter of 22, however, we needed something to do other than sit on the beautiful sands of Naples Beach. Looking on tripadvisor produced Double R's and after a bit of... More

My boyfriend and I wanted to see manatees and bottle nosed dolphins during our vacation to Naples. Our guide Mike was very knowledgeable about them, discussing their habitat, feeding, breeding, and protection. During our two hour tour, we were able to get close to them several times (in our boat). We also saw a tarpon and went shelling. A very... More

Just returned from a morning fishing trip that was brilliant for myself and family! We caught many different types of fish and sharks including a hammerhead! Thoroughly enjoyed by all! Would recommend this friendly and fun service.

We loved our eco tour with Capt. Jim. The boat holds 6 people and we were the only persons on board so we had a private tour--amazing. It was a wonderful time. We saw two manatees, a crocodile, and lots of birds. We waded on a private island and looked for shells. Capt. Jim was very knowledgeable and Gary, the... More

We went on a boat tour with Capt. Jim, the tour was just my uncle, husband, myself, and two year old son. We had a great time! My son loved the stop at the beach to experience all 10,000 island has to offer. We saw alligators, birds, manatees, and tons of fish. Jim is very knowledgeable of the area. He... More

Really great tour in beautifull surroundings with an excellent tour guide. Were lucky enough to experience manatees, dolphins and an alligator. I recommend this tour to everyone who wants to see the mangrove vegetation and exiting sea and bird wildlife.
