Come with us on a 1-hour air boat way out in the real Everglades! On this smaller air boat trip, we stop at one or two Native American tree island villages to learn about how the Miccosukee people survived in the Everglades. We are the only tour to provide this unique experience! Become immersed in their special customs and the authentic beauty of their remote way of life.
On this trip, we typically see large alligators, baby alligators, birds and other wildlife. This sometimes includes the critically endangered Everglades snail kite! On this exhilarating trip, you’ll find yourself mesmerized by the reflection of the white clouds on the water, way out, far from land in the middle of the “River of Grass.”
You will also go on a 1.5 hour nature walk led by our master naturalist in the Everglades National Park. This is one of the most iconic National Parks in the United States. We are one of just a few companies permitted to lead interpretive walking tours In ENP.
Visiting here is a bucket-list item!
On this walk, we know where the wildlife is, and we get to see it up close!
WE DO NOT GO TO PLACES WHERE THERE ARE ANIMALS IN CAGES AND PENS!
Guests learn about the natural flora and fauna, and better understand the critical role of water flow and quality in shaping the historic Everglades. We also learn about recent conservation efforts.
Enjoy a 25 minute narrated scenic drive provided by the master naturalist. There is also 30-45 minutes to explore on one’s own too, including a stop in at the Visitors Center.
