About Everglades River of Grass Adventures
Exploring the wilderness from a Swamp Buggy is a great way to experience the diverse habitats found in the Everglades. As you travel through lush pine islands, hardwood hammocks, cypress swamps and wetlands you will soon realize that this is truly a one of kind experience. The elevated view from the legendary Swamp Buggy allows for a much more intimate glimpse of the magnificent plants and wildlife, some found no where else in the world. Take a nature walk where few have ever been before. Of course, if you prefer to explore from the comfort of the buggy that is fine too. The Swamp Buggy holds a maximum of 6 guests for a more personalized tour. (2 buggies can depart together for small groups) Reservations are needed. Inquire online or call. We are a family owned and operating business and look forward to welcoming you to the the beautiful Everglades and Big Cypress National Preserve, one of our worlds most natural treasures!

Wow! What an amazing experience. The Everglades are just breathtakingly beautiful and the ride through them is very informative about the environment of them. We cannot recommend this highly enough. So very happy we did this and so thankful that we had Captain Willie, truly wonderful. He knows so much, is such a great teacher and just AMAZING! Thank you for the wonderful adventure, Captain Willie!

Hank, our tour guide has to be one of the best in the business! We opted for a quaint semi-private tour that was just the two of us and one other couple that we did not know. Hank was extremely knowledgeable about the Everglades and did a great job explaining how the seasons and various animals/creatures were all important. We saw several alligators, birds, fish, and various vegetation. It was obvious Hank truly enjoyed his job. Hank was a great story teller.

For many years, I had wanted to explore the grasslands of the Everglades in a fan boat. And this was the real deal. Captain Mike was deeply knowledgeable about the Everglades and deeply interested in maximizing our exposure to the Everglades during our 90 minute tour. A perfect introduction to this amazingly unique part of nature.
