  • Miami: Everglades Park Fan-Boat Tour and Animal Presentation

    1. Miami: Everglades Park Fan-Boat Tour and Animal Presentation

    Visit the Everglades, the largest national park in the USA, and discover a unique ecosystem with diverse flora and fauna. The Everglades National Park is home to more than 120 different species of trees, more than 300 species of birds, and countless snakes in the largest tropical wetlands in the world. Have the chance to see turtles, brown bears, foxes, and the Florida panther as well as numerous native tribes. The highlight of your trip is the speedy ride on an airboat. See crocodiles and alligators that only share a habitat in Florida, then learn more about these fascinating animals with an exciting animal show.

    We had a good time! It was not clear when booking that you would be on a shuttle bus with 75 other people and that you would spend 1 additional hour each way picking up and dropping off the other passengers. We booked our ticket with a transportation from our hotel. Just be sure when you book this option you know it is not a private car service to the Everglades. Other than the wasted 2 hours picking up and dropping off other passengers it was a good excursion. Thank you.
