Make your Day Trip a Wild One!

Did you know that you are just a hop, skip and a jump from the Florida Everglades?

Enhance your Florida vacation or getaway with a day trip off island into the heart of one of the most beautiful natural habitats in the United States.

How do you get there? There are several tour companies that offer exciting adventures in the Glades. You can just jump in the car and head South on route 41 and stop off at any number of Airboat rides and roadside attractions.

One company that caters after you is Everglades Adventures. They will even come and pick you up, meaning worry free transportation to and from the Everglades– with your fun starting immediately after boarding the roomy air conditioned bus with the informative and entertaining tour guides.

So what can you see and what is there to do in the Everglades? Pure Nature! Air Boat rides are always a blast. As you glide over the water on the Sea of Grass you will find yourself in one of the most thrilling experiences ever. Guides take you to places that are not accessible except by Airboat and explain the animal life and of course alligators!

Swamp Buggy rides are a thrill that you will never forget! Here you get a slower tour and explanation of the incredible nature and wildlife around you. Black Bears, white tailed deer, raccoons and you guessed it, more alligators abound.

The Interactive Animal Experience is awesome! Hold a fifty pound snake, tropical parrots, macaws, tortoises and more alligators!

The Nature Drive is a wonderful ride through a cypress swamp in the Everglades. You will learn how to identify native flora like bromeliad, Spanish moss, epiphytes, the cypress trees and of course many types of palms, viewing the ecosystem as a whole.
