The Everglades Day Safari offers an in-depth, naturalist-guided day trip into the majestic Everglades!
Every Everglades Day Safari adventure includes:
Roundtrip transportation from the greater Fort Myers areas.
A well-educated, highly-trained, naturalist guide.
A nature walk under the canopy of towering bald cypress.
A scenic boat cruise into the Ten Thousand Islands mangrove forest in Everglades National Park.
A delicious lunch with alligator appetizers.
A wildlife drive through the pine savannahs and cypress forests of Big Cypress National Preserve.
And a spectacular airboat ride through sawgrass prairies and pond apple forests.
Our nature walk is a leisurely stroll into the ancient cypress swamp forests of the Everglades. These fresh water areas are home to old growth Bald Cypress that tower of the swamp and provide homes for owls, woodpeckers, bats and raccoons. Orchids, bromeliads, ferns and climbing vines create a lush sub-tropical landscape like no other place in North America. Alligators and turtles nest nearby and a variety of bird species can be found under in the shade of the cypress.
Our tours that depart from the Fort Myers area include a 1.6 mile round-trip walk.
Our tours that depart from the Fort Lauderdale area include a 1.0 mile round-trip walk.
