After a morning hotel pickup in the Fort Lauderdale area, it’s a relaxing 2-hour ride to Everglades Day Safari for this half-day 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 at Captain Bob’s Excellent Adventure. This educational 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 Lauderdale.
Notice: If hotel is not on the pickup list, meet at Flamingo Gardens in Davie, Fla.
