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!
