Just beyond Fort Lauderdale lie the Florida Everglades, a magnificent subtropical wilderness—and lots of it—protected by one of the largest national parks in the United States. Here’s what you need to know about exploring this vast, wet, and wild “river of grass” on a tour from Fort Lauderdale.

Small-Group Tours
Small-group tours to the 100-mile-long (161-kilometer-long), 60-mile-wide (96-kilometer-wide) Florida Everglades from Fort Lauderdale offer travelers a budget-friendly way to experience this Wetland of International Importance, International Biosphere Reserve, and UNESCO World Heritage Site. Options are varied depending on interest: On a typical Everglades day trip, you might enjoy a nature walk through a cypress forest; take an airboat ride through the Everglades National Park or Sawgrass Recreation Park to spot beautiful birds, panthers, and alligators; or explore the wilderness after dark to experience the sights and sounds of the Everglades by night.

Private Tours
Opting for a private tour of the Everglades affords several benefits, including greater flexibility of your itinerary and the chance to ask as many questions as you want of your very own tour guide while skimming across the water at speeds of up to 40 miles (65 kilometers) per hour. A private Everglades airboat tour uses a small boat that can travel deeper into the Everglades for longer periods of time than larger boat tours. 

Things to Know
  • Everglades day trips from Fort Lauderdale can last between four and 10 hours.
  • Choose between the value of a small-group tour and the flexibility of a private tour.
  • Many tours include hotel pickup and drop-off in Fort Lauderdale.
  • Don’t forget to bring sunscreen, a hat, and insect repellent.
