  • Everglades National Park: Airboat Tour and Wildlife Show

    1. Everglades National Park: Airboat Tour and Wildlife Show

    Discover the Everglades National Park, the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States. It is a diverse landscape providing crucial habitats for numerous rare and endangered species. It is considered the premier location to view a variety of reptiles, including the American alligator, birds, turtles, deer, wild boars, and even the elusive Florida panther.  The swampland is often referred to as the River of Grass because it creates endless prairies of sawgrass that rise three to ten feet above the surface of the water. The sawgrass is often so dense that travel is only possible through natural water passages. The lush vegetation of the Everglades also includes mangrove, cypress, palms, pines, and hardwood hammocks (small islands).  Ride on an airboat, which is designed to operate well in shallow water and marshlands. Propelled by an aircraft-type propeller and powered by either an...

    Overall was good. Really enjoyed the Everglades tour. Would suggest some earplugs for those with sensitive hearing. Loud when going at high speed. Transfer from bus to boat rental was a little stressful. The instructions did not mention needing printed receipt for boat tour from bus personnel first. Hurried down to make reservations and then had to come back for receipt and go back again. We were not the only ones. Bus tour nice, relaxing, nothing exciting but did see a lot of the city. Boat tour was good. Nice trip, pleasant guide. Suggest bringing drinks/snacks if doing all 3 in 1 day like we did.
