C&G Big Cypress Swamp Buggy Tours

Chokoloskee, FL, USA
About C&G Big Cypress Swamp Buggy Tours
We are partnered with the Big Cypress National Preserve to run up to a 4 hour swamp buggy tour into the backcountry of the Everglades to view nature from a safe distance. We have comfortable 6 passenger buggies equiped with canopies for shade. The mornings are beautiful in the swamp and the sunsets are breath-taking. Captain Bobby Weeks, a 4th generation Everglades local, grew up hunting, fishing and riding in and around the areas of Ochopee, Big Cypress, Chokoloskee, and Everglades City. Bobby and Captain Joe are very knowledgeable of the area and would love to share their experiences and the beauty of this unique area.

Lots of birds and some small critters. Unusually hot weather keeping the larger animals from moving around. Bobby did a great job on the tour, knows the area well.
