Everglades Tours

By Viator, July 2010

4.5 294 Reviews | Add your review

The Everglades, covering much of the southeastern tip of Florida, is more than a big swamp full of alligators. True, you will see alligators - lots of them - but this unique subtropical wilderness also supports such creatures as American crocodiles, bottlenose dolphins, manatees, snowy egrets, bald eagles and ospreys. And amid the mangroves, cypress, hardwood hammocks and miles of sawgrass, there are endless opportunities for hiking, bicycling, canoeing, kayaking, or taking an airboat ride.

Spot alligators on a day-trip along the Tamiami Trail or take a two-hour tram tour in Shark Valley. The visitor center at Big Cypress National Preserve has great exhibits for kids and an outdoor, water-filled ditch popular with alligators. When hunger pangs set it, stop in Everglades City for a plate of gator nuggets and frog’s legs.

The best time to visit is during dry season – from December to April – when the weather is mild and pleasant and the wildlife is out in abundance. In summer wet season – May through November – it's hot and humid and there are frequently afternoon thunderstorms. The animals disperse, but the bugs don't. The one upside to the wet season is that you won’t be sharing your experience with as many tourists.
