My husband and I took the Everglades Day Safari out of Ft. Myers. We absolutely loved it! Our guide, Dr. Manfred Dangel, was unbelieveably knowledgeable with a touch of humor. He made the periods of driving most educational and enjoyable. An hour nature walk took us into a Cypress Swamp where we saw bald eagles, two snakes, a mother alligator and a few generations of her babies at an alligator hole. Many birds were also seen. From there we went to Everglades National Park and took a 90 minute boat ride through the mangroves into Florida Bay and out to the Gulf of Mexico. We saw dolphin and many shore birds. A manatee was also seen as we arrived back at the dock. After a great lunch, we drove through back roads and wound up at Lake Trafford where we boarded an airboat for a truly fantastic hour of wildlife viewing - hundreds of alligators and birds. We will recommend this GREAT trip to all of our northern friends and family!
