Know More about this tour

You’ll be picked up from one of the convenient Greater Fort Myers area locations in the morning and taken by air-conditioned 14-passenger van to the Everglades. Your expert naturalist or biologist guide will first take you on an exciting 60-minute airboat ride through the marshes and swamps of the Western Everglades.

Back on dry land, explore sawgrass prairies on a narrated van tour through Big Cypress National Preserve. Spot wildlife such as alligators, turtles and birds as you venture through the Everglades backcountry.

Next, enjoy a nature walk through ancient, towering cypress trees where alligators loom. Spot herons, egrets and storks, and maybe otters, bears, pigs, deer and panthers!

Break for lunch in the afternoon at a restaurant in the heart of the Everglades, where you’ll dine on several entrees. You can even try some alligator appetizers!

  • Small group Fantastic

  • There was a lot to cover on this day trip. I will mention what I can remember. Our naturalist, who was from Boston, was great! A real environmentalist and able to instruct us. It wasn't hot when we went so we needed No DEET but I could only imagine that going into the forest we would get mosquito bites more than the 5 we got in January. You were able to take very nice wildlife and waterfowl pictures along the way. There are a Lot of alligators on the tour! There were a few legs of this trip and each were informative parts that tell the story of Florida's beginnings. The airboat ride was very fun! I highly recommend this tour if you want to know All about Florida's history and environmental past. Love to get close to nature and get great pictures of Many bird species.

  • Wonderful experience.

  • We really enjoyed the experience. The airboat ride was great, we saw a lot of wildlife birds, alligators. The walk was a bit of a challenge due to the heat and the mosquitos. In the afternoon we enjoyed a ride in the ocean, where we saw dolphins, horseshoecrabs and manatees.Annie, our guide was very knowledgeable.

  • Our tour guide was young and very knowledgeable about the animals, fauna and area. We would do again in a heartbeat. Excellent time to see many alligator's, dolphins, variety of birds and nice scenery. Nice to have a smaller group to hear and ease of keeping the pace.

  • What a great day..our guide was very knowledgeable, and personable. Be sure to remember your binoculars as well as your camera. Would highly recommend this tour.

  • Simply Amazing. Doug was tremendous. Highly recommend for a wonderful nature tour of the glads.

  • Every facet of this trip was wonderful...from Ann our guide in the van to Trevor who operated our skiff to the Captain to operated the airboat ride it was wonderful! We got to see so many great things and everyone had great stories and shared info about what we were seeing and the history behind many of the things we saw...Highly recommend this tour!

  • The tour was good in that we did cover a wide variety of the everglades. However, the time constraints meant each event was too brief to fully enjoy each venue. We spent a LOT of time on the bus and the guide tried to fill in the time with info but it would have been better if we had done an airboat ride for example on our own. I would not do this tour again and would have been happier if I had taken individual tours over a two day period.

  • An excellent tour with a knowledgeable guide. We saw birds and alligators galore and learned much of the history of the areas we travelled through.
