Everglades Kayaking

About the Area

Naples, Marco Island and the western portion of the Everglades make up Southwest Florida's Collier County – also known as The Paradise Coast. Collier is the largest county in the state of Florida, by land area, yet more than 80% of the vast expanse of land is preserved as park and nature preserve land by federal, state, county, city and private agencies. Beautiful beach communities surrounded by nature – it's no wonder the area is referred to as Florida’s Last Paradise.

Night Eye Tours: Join Zoo Director David Tetzlaff for the sixth year of private guided tours of Naples Zoo after night falls. You will see the nocturnal activities of rare animals in the dark including tigers and lions using night vision scopes. Along the way, participants enjoy personal animal encounters, behind-the-scenes experiences, and a night cruise through islands of primates. Click for more info and to purchase tickets online
