Departure Time

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.

Excellent introduction to the Everglades
, Jan 2022
We thoroughly enjoyed our day tour of the Everglades. Our tour guide, Jason, was both personable and extremely knowledgeable. He was waiting outside our hotel at 7:25 as arranged, and took great care that we arrived at each of our stops on time. There were only six of us on the tour, which made it easier. Each of the stops was very interesting. Our favorites were the airboat ride and the boardwalk. Lunch was exceptionally good too. The tour was not cheap, but we felt it was good value for money and we would recommend it.
A fantastic day with submission in the nature of the Everglades

Great way to see the nature. Marc our guide was a very knowledgeable and pleasant. We had a great day

Thank you for your feedback. Marc does an incredible job and I'm glad you enjoyed the time with him.
You will NOT be disappointed! Unbelievable experience!!!

We were not sure what to expect on this adventure. What we got was one of the best days of our lives! Driving around in a luxury bus with continuous stops, boat rides, nature walks, lunch, all with a knowledgeable fun guide named Zak. We were so close to gators and dolphins we could have touched them. Anybody who books this will not be disappointed!!

Thank you Melissa! I'm glad you enjoyed your time in the Everglades with Zak. We do everything possible not to disappoint!
Amazing! Such a great find!
, Aug 2021
All I can say is amazing!!! Marc was our over all tour guide and was honestly awesome! Very attentive to everyones needs, and very very knowledgeable and really a great tour host! Although we didn't see a ton of animals because of time of year we still saw some and the knowledge and boat rides/walk were entertaining by themselves. If you are that person that wants everything perfect and to see a million animals don't go, don't be that person that is going to leave a bad review because of things out of human control. The weather was going to be iffy so we got to carry ponchos with is but it never rained on us while we were outside of the van or restaurant eating. This was seriously a great day! I learned so much! BRING CASH TO TIP ALL OF THE GUIDES! They try really hard to look for animals or at least give you some local knowledge. You will have your van driver as a guide, the air boat guide and the last speed boat guide. The food was included in the tour but tip your waitress a little extra too! I can't fit more photos in this review but I think you get the idea.

Amazing tour!!!!
, Jul 2021
This Everglades tour exceeded our expectations and was well worth the money! Our tour guide, Mark, was absolutely phenomenal and was extremely knowledgeable about the Everglades and it’s surrounding area. The air boat ride and the boat tour off Chokoloskee island was also very informative and beautiful. We had a wonderful experience!

Great experience and a lot of fun!
, Jul 2021
It was very fun trip. We got to see so many animals in the park especially alligators. We also saw dolphins, turtles, birds, fish, and other animals. Marc was a great guide. He really knows a lot about the Everglades and the plants and animals that are found there. He was very friendly and fun to talk to. I would recommend to anyone. It's great value and everything is taken care of from transfer pickup from hotel to the airboat ride and other boat ride to lunch and even drop off at the hotel. Thanks!
Totally Awesome!!!!

Best day of our trip to Florida
, Jun 2021
This was our favorite day of our trip to Florida. We saw tons of alligators, dolphins, birds and plants. Our tour guide Zach had a clear passion for nature and did a great job calling out things as he saw them and taking the time to explain and answer questions.
