Shark Valley Tram Tours in the north part of the Everglades in south Florida is a great way to see wild life and the marshy terrain that make this part of the world so unique and special. We made a 9:30 reservation and practically had a private tour. Our guide and tram driver were very knowledgeable full of stories and interesting information. They were alert to anything they could show us and there was plenty to see and experience.
We saw a mom alligator with several baby alligators swimming under her watchful eye. We saw a male alligator swell up in size trying to (and did) look big to protect his territory. He showed his broken teeth and opened his mouth for a great picture! We saw birds feeding their young with the young birds sticking their heads down their mom's throat (ouch!). And a large snake crossed the road In front of us pausing to have his picture taken and we obliged. The raised platform at the end of the tram trail gave a great sweeping view of the Everglades.
The tram tour was well worth the price and going in the early morning tour is something I would recommend. There was some construction on Highway 41 to get to Shark Valley, so plan accordingly.
