Full description
Explore the subtropical wilderness of the Everglades on Florida’s finest eco-tour with the Everglades Day Safari. The safari includes narrated transportation from Fort Lauderdale to the four main ecosystems of the Everglades. First take a 45-minute airboat ride through the sawgrass prairie of the Everglades. Here you will see alligators, turtles and dozens of species of birds. Enjoy a wildlife drive in the Big Cypress National Preserve. 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. 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. Tours depart daily with several convenient pickups at many hotels along Fort Lauderdale Beach and Fort Lauderdale starting at 7:15 am. Tours are limited to small groups and reservations are required.

Get ready for a packed day of learning and exploring! From the bus ride to the fan boat, hike, and boat ride the experiences were amazing. Plenty of wildlife and plant life to learn about. Our tour guide Marc had a wealth of knowledge and energy. Thoroughly enjoyed by all in my group.

This was a wonderful day with Karl. He is a really great guide. We loved the variety of places and activities included and the fish I had for lunch was so excellent. I wasn’t expecting such excellent food. We are so glad we spent the day with your company We highly recommend this tour! Pamela

My husband and I had an amazing experience doing this tour with our guide, Karl (with a “K”!). His expansive knowledge helped engage the entire group while on the tour. The airboat was like nothing I have experienced and having dolphins in our wake during the boat cruise was delightful!
