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.
