Itinerary
Get ready to enjoy a full day tour beginning at 9am, with an approximate return of 4:30pm.  This tour includes a narrated van transportation to the Everglades with a certified naturalist guide or biologist and a thrilling 35 minute airboat ride through the Everglades mangrove swamp, sawgrass prairie, and marsh habitats!

All of this adventure sure does work up an appetite, so a sit down lunch is provided in Everglades City complete with fried alligator tail. The full menu includes fish, shrimp, chicken, hamburgers, and salads. 

A narrated 30 minute swamp buggy ride through marsh prairie and cypress hardwood swamp kicks off the second portion of this tour, where you will be taken to an alligator exhibit. 

You will finally finish up with a wildlife drive in the Big Cypress National Preserve to find and observe alligators and birds in their natural habitat.

Long Hot day but some fun but some frustration

Fantastic

Kelsi is a fantastic tour guide. She knew so much history from the roads to the birds to the trees. She is friendly, outgoing and very accommodating. I would highly recommend someone take a tour with her.
