Departure Time

7:45 AM
After a morning hotel pickup in the Fort Lauderdale area, it’s off to one of the most beautiful and unique places on earth—the Florida Everglades.

On this naturalist-guided excursion, begin with a spectacular airboat ride over and through the sawgrass prairies and pond apple forests of the Everglades. Then hop in a van for a wildlife drive through the pine savannahs and cypress forests of Big Cypress National Preserve. Look for alligators, turtles, and birds and keep an eye out for the elusive Florida panther. Next, enjoy a nature walk below towering bald cypress trees. Alligators, herons, egrets and dozens of other species can be spotted at any time throughout the year here. Also, less visible but ever-present otters, bears, pigs, deer, and panthers roam the local wilderness.

After lunch, which includes alligator appetizers, hop on board a scenic boat ride into the Ten Thousand Islands mangrove forest in Everglades National Park. This relaxing cruise features manatees, sea turtles, osprey and a variety of other marine life, including the occasional pod of dolphins feeding in the nearby bay.

The tour concludes with a relaxing return trip to the Fort Lauderdale area.

Notice: If hotel is not on the pickup list, meet at Flamingo Gardens in Davie, Fla.

Learning a great deal from our tour guide about the Everglades wildlife and natural habitats, watching alligators and birds in the canals, and dolphins playing in the wake behind our boat in the mangroves. The entire trip to the Everglades National Park was worthwhile

Mark is a first class host. We had perfect weather, saw everything and more than expected. One suggestion to improve even further would be an opportunity for a coffee/drink during the morning as it is a long day with a lot of driving.

Marc was our guide and he was amazing as he gave us an incredible experience as we toured the Everglades. He was so knowledgeable about the vegetation, the wildlife and the world around us. It's a full day tour but so worth it as you see and learn firsthand. Marc was courteous and attentive to everyone on the tour. Thank you for the wonderful day!!

Excellent day trip. Pick up was on time. Easy to spot the van. Good narration by the driver. Saw tons of alligators and birds. Air boat ride was fun. Boat ride to see the white pelicans was good. Also saw many dolphins on the second boat ride. Lunch was great. Nice local restaurant.

I took this tour with my nephew and it was AMAZING! I took the same tour 6 months ago with another nephew and enjoyed it just as much the second time around. Each tour guide brings their own unique perspective and knowledge to the day - I was presently surprised that the 2nd time was just as good as the first. Our tour guide this time around, Mark, was passionate about conservation and about enjoying the planet we inhabit. His extensive knowledge and deep enthusiasm made the day unforgettable!
