We took our family for the 15 miles of biking. The bike rentals were good. It took us 2 hours to finish. We saw lots of flowers, 3 birds, snails, fish, grasshoppers, and No gators! We went in March once and saw over 30 gators....More

As all airboat tours in the Everglades were cancelled the afternoon we were down there, due to thunder storms, we decided that we go biking instead to at least have a chance to see something. This was mid June and once we started biking, 10...More

15 miles of paved trail though the Everglades to walk, bike ( you can hire bikes), or take a ranger guided tram ride. The guide was very knowledgeable. The observation tower at the end of the 7 mole path was very cool.

Our tram was small, about 12 people per guide. We saw alligators and 3 kinds of rare large water turtles, all sorts of bird life, and two baby alligators. I think the tour was fascinating to learn about the Everglades and being on a shaded...More

You can rent bikes here or take a tram ride. There was not much action with the wildlife. Perhaps it was the intense heat keeping all the animals hidden.

A rare opportunity to get close to the wildlife in the Everglades. Birds, alligators,snakes, fish, and Florida Fauna . You can see it while riding bikes. An incredible experience.
