My 15 year old daughter and I floated the Turner River in October. The water level was very high and we were unwarned about the severe tightness of the mangrove tunnels. At one point, due to the water being so high, we had to push up as hard as we could, while laying down completely in the kayak, in order to get under the mangrove. The mangrove tunnels were exhilarating and definitely a different type of experience.
The whole trip was wonderful. Wildlife included alligators, heron, egrets, kingfisher, and osprey. We rented 2 Wilderness Systems solo kayaks from North American Canoe at the Ivey House in Everglades, City (239-695-3299). The provide shuttle services and an essential map too.
