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.

A great trip and suitable for all of the family. Our tour leader was Pete who was very informative and provided a detailed commentary and information. The air boat ride was fantastic allowing us to see lots of alligators and the children loved the reptile show. Thank for a great trip!

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!

1 star rating: I do not recommend this March 2016

The price was absolutely ridiculous!!!! Drive directly to Airboats and Alligators on you own and the cost is 37.50. I went thru Viator and paid 80.00 per person. Would never do another tour with them anywhere!


1 star rating: I do not recommend this May 2015

Disappointing when it is advertised as the Everglades and it is not even close to it.....would not recommend it.
