Everglades Family Adventure Tour from Greater Fort Myers/Naples Area

Giant Egret in the Everglades

After a morning hotel pickup in the Greater Fort Myers/Naples area, it’s a relaxing 1-hour ride to Everglades Day Safari for this 1-hour airboat tour.

On this guided excursion, skim along the marshes and swamps of the Western Everglades and see herons, egrets, gallinules and spoonbills while listening to fun facts and learning about the area’s ecosystem from the experienced captain. Look for a variety of wildlife, especially alligators, in their natural habitat. There are more alligators here per acre than anywhere else in the world. The guide will point out where they are — early and often.

After the airboat ride, check out the 1-hour reptile show, 'Captain Bob’s Excellent Adventure.' This hands-on, interactive reptile presentation features alligators, snakes, turtles and more. Ask questions and join in the fun of learning about these amazing creatures.

The tour concludes with a relaxing return trip to Fort Myers.

Please note: If your hotel is not on the pickup list, meet at the Parker Promenade in Fort Myers.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

It was a fantastic tour with a very professionell tour guide. The organisation was very good and we have seen a lot of animals.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2015

This adventure was one of the highlights of our stay in Florida! Adam, our on land tour guide and reptile expert, was interesting and quite informative...not to mention quite funny too. He was great with the youngsters - and oldsters alike...Thank you Adam! Our guide on the airboat was also great and the experience going through the Everglades was magical. Our group of six had a wonderful experience and we all have beautiful photos and memories to back that up. Viator has never failed me yet whether booking a trip in Europe or the US. Thank you!
