- Enjoy a day trip to through the marshes and swamps of the Everglades by foot, airboat, van and pontoon
- See dolphins, alligators, manatee, turtles, hogs, deer, bear, butterflies, snakes, turtles and birds of all varieties throughout the year
First take a 50-minute airboat ride through the sawgrass prairie of the Everglades. Here you will see alligators, turtles and dozens of species of birds. Then watch an alligator show that delves into the natural history of the crocodilians of Florida.
Enjoy a wildlife drive in the Big Cypress National Preserve after the show. Tour the sawgrass prairies of the Everglades backcountry. Alligators, turtles and birds abound in front of a backdrop that is reminiscent of the great plains of Africa.
Next, take a nature walk through an ancient forest of towering cypress. This area is home to bromiliads, orchids and a variety of colorfully adorned flora.
During the afternoon break you will enjoy an excellent lunch at a waterside restaurant in the heart of the Everglades. You will be offered alligator appetizers in addition to several delicious lunch entrees or an all-you-can-eat salad bar with peel-and-eat shrimp.
Relax and check out the scenery aboard a 60-minute boat cruise after lunch. The cruise navigates the shallow, mangrove-lined waters of the 10,000 Islands in the Everglades National Park. Manatees, sea turtles, dolphins, osprey and a variety of other marine life thrive here.
