The River of Grass Adventures is a private family run Everglades tour company. We offer several ways to explore this vast and magical ecosystem. Small custom airboats for big adventures that are appropriate for all ages, Swamp buggies for the more rugged outdoor adventurist and an air-conditioned high roof transit van great for half and full day unique sightseeing tours. Our team of seasoned gladesmen / naturalist will educate and thrill you as you explore deep into the heart of the Everglades, a true national treasure. Reservation are needed. Visit our website, give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to welcoming you to the beautiful Florida Everglades.

Great ride, guy who took us knew where the places and where to find various animals. He gave us a lot of information about Everglades, its conservation, problems, animals and their habits. Really friendly and nicely done

Hey There, It's a pretty remote location, so I don't think there'd be any public transportation options. We rented a car and drove there; I've seen that some other folks took Uber or Lyft.

I would do the longer one as you will be taken farther out into the Everglades and be able to see more wildlife, once you are on the boat you will regret not having the longer trip its so amazing
