The Everglades National Park Expedition is a two-part, Naturalist-led experience lasting three and a half hours. It is a combined boating tour and a leisurely walking tour in the 10,000 Islands of Everglades National Park.
First you will enjoy a quiet, leisurely boat tour through the Park’s Ten Thousand Islands coastal ecosystem. Your naturalist guide will be on the hunt for all types of wildlife… Everyday and every tour is different. But, depending on the season and the day’s conditions, you may encounter dolphins, manatees, roseate spoonbills, pelicans, ospreys, eagles, ibis, herons, egrets, multitudes of sea and shore birds, sea turtles and other saltwater creatures
We want this to be an intimate experience , so each boat is limited to just six passengers. With comfortable seating, the boat is a very stable platform for wildlife birding and photography â€¦ plenty of room for a tripod and large lenses. (We do not use airboats! Airboats are not allowed in the Park where we operate due to their impact on the wildlife and the environment
After the boating tour and as conditions allow, your captain will lead you on an interpretive stroll on one of the Park’s many uninhabited, barrier island beaches. These remote islands can only be accessed by boat so relatively few people every set foot where you will go.
