Participez à cette excursion de 2 heures en tramway à Shark Valley pour découvrir plus en détails la région nord du parc national des Everglades. Cette visite guidée par des naturalistes se déroule à bord d'un tramway ouvert qui vous permettra de découvrir la « Rivière d'herbe » et la faune qui l'habite. À mi-chemin, vous pourrez monter la rampe en spirale qui conduit à la passerelle de la tour d'observation de Shark Valley, qui offre des vues panoramiques sur le cœur des Everglades.
Nous sommes arrivés pour notre tour juste aprzun gros orage et pensions ne pas voir grand chose. Mais nous avons été agréablement surpris. Notre guide était très sympathique et compétent et si nous n’avons vu qu’un seul alligator, nous avons découvert des serpents, grenouilles, tortues et plusieurs sortes d’oiseaux
Although I am a jaded expat New Yorker, now living in s. Florida, I had some serious learning to do in regards to the Everglades. First, the moment we took our seats in the tram, we saw and learned more about alligators probably a couple of dozen, and that was just from the vantage of the seat than I ever imagined we'd see. It was actually my first encounter with alligators outside of a zoo and the elusive few living at the Wakodahatchee Wetlands. Then, the birds well, I lost count. Even the fauna was well represented, and described. Which brings me to my final point. Our guide, Antonio T., was simply the best he shared his first-hand knowledge of the park with us lucky enough to ride his tour. What I learned, that I never knew before: prior to 1947, Humble Oil, one of the major oil companies from the 19th century, had a pumping rig in the Everglades. As Humble was able to pump only a lesser-quality crude from that well, they were encouraged to quit the well and thus leave the park. The lesson I learned specifically is about drilling rights, and ecological change in general. Will we allow drilling and minerals exploration - using technology in whatever guise it takes - in national parks, or stay the course and prevent drilling and fracking activities from despoiling our beautiful heritage? I'm not a tree hugger but I want to extend a special Thank You to our guide for sharing this insight.
Interesting 15 mile trip via tram through part of the everglades. you had better bring plenty of mosquito spray
because they will eat you up if you don't spray yourself. Glad we did the tour. The guide was very informative.
Informative guide. Lots of alligators, birds and turtles. A small shop to buy drinks and food cold. No coffee tho! After tram tour we were able to walk around the area exploring and taking photos. What we hadn't appreciated is that Shark Valley is small and unable to canoe/kayak - that is approx an hour away. You can hire bikes by the hour. Seemed expensive so we didn't.
Good tour with a knowledgeable National Park Ranger which takes 2 hours so you have plenty of time to get any questions answered.
During the dry months Dec to March, make sure that you sit on the right hand side of the trolley as most of the water and hence animals are on that side.
Try to stay well away from the noisy, smelly engine which is at the rear of the front vehicle. The noise obscures the ranger's commentary and wears you down over the 2 hours. Also the fumes are unpleasant after 2 hours.
It was a great tour and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Very educational -- good guide and good driver made the experience very enjoyable. We saw lots of alligators, blue herons, great egrets and many other birds. Learned a lot about the everglades and the sawgrass environment.
