The largest subtropical wilderness in the United States, the Everglades National Park is an ecological niche so vast and diverse that scientists are still exploring it and discovering new and unusual flora and fauna. At nearly 1.5 million acres in size, this natural niche is so big that visitors can easily spend a week exploring its mangrove swamps and reed banks. Luckily, that kind of time doesn’t need to be spent wandering these waters – a tour is a time-effective and fun way to tour the ‘glades in style.
From Ft. Myers, a great half- or full-day can be spent touring the Everglades. Either on foot or in an air-conditioned van, you’ll see the natural wonders of this Florida treasure. An exciting air-boat ride makes for an unforgettable fun romp through the swamps, and you’ll get in-depth information about the Everglades from your guide while cruising through the waters spotting alligators, waterfowl, manatees, and maybe the elusive American Bald Eagle.
