I took the long tour which I think was a little more than 2 miles. I did not see a lot of wildlife, but I did see some snakes, birds and alligators. Remember you are outdoors, make sure you have your repellant on, it can be hot, humid and buggy. It is a unique experience to undertake and one worth... More

Get a look at Florida as it once was far from the crowds. It's a wonderful day trip or even half day. Excellent boardwalk for easy maneuvering.

We enjoy walking along the boardwalk, and seeing a little bit of wildlife. It was educational to see the different habitats also. However, we felt it was a bit expensive ($24 for two). We felt that State Parks (usually about $5 per car admission) offer a better value and have some similar experiences. This is a nice place, though.

Great idea of waking along a boardwalk (two hours minimum) seeing and experiencing different habitats and landscapes: swamps, tall grass, wooded, etc. Each habitat has its own vegetation and animals. We saw deer, pileated woodpeckers, ospreys, hawks, ibis, Did not see, but they are there, alligators. Wonderful way to learn and enjoy the outdoors.
