On this naturalist-guided excursion, begin with a spectacular 40-minute airboat ride over and through the sawgrass prairies and pond apple forests of the Everglades. Then hop in a van for a wildlife drive through the pine savannahs and cypress forests of Big Cypress National Preserve. Look for alligators, turtles and birds and keep an eye out for the elusive Florida panther. Next, enjoy a nature walk below towering bald cypress trees. Alligators, herons, egrets and dozens of other species can be spotted at any time throughout the year here. Also, less visible but ever present otters, bears, pigs, deer and panthers roam the local wilderness.
After lunch, which includes alligator appetizers, hop on board a scenic boat ride into the Ten Thousand Islands mangrove forest in Everglades National Park. This relaxing cruise features manatees, sea turtles, osprey and a variety of other marine life, including the occasional pod of dolphins feeding in the nearby bay.
The tour concludes with a relaxing return trip to the Fort Lauderdale area.
Notice: If hotel is not on the pickup list, meet at Flamingo Gardens in Davie, Fla.

Our tour guide Julio was awesome. He was very informative kept everything on track for the day. We saw lots of birds and Gators. Our lunch stop was great. The Meal was prepared as order and all four of us on the tour thought it was the Bomb for a tour lunch! This tour is for everyone kids included. Everything was top notch on this tour!

overall a great tour - our guide - Zak - was proffesional, personable, friendly and knowledgable about the everglades, animals and other aspects of the tour. Communication prior to the tour was good and we easily found the pick up area at Flamingo Gardens having driven up from Miami that am. Food was good at the mid-stop. Bring some snacks for the van rides which are a little lengthy and really the only negative. Took our kids - 7 and 11 - they enjoyed the tour and all the alligators, we probably saw about 100, plus dolphins, manatee's, and numerous birds including a great horned owl.

This was an amazing trip with an even more amazing guide. Mark was full of information and made the whole experience a step above others. Loved this guy and his passion for the everglades, the animals and the environment altogether. Would recommend this trip over others. Long day but saw and did everything I wanted.

Viator could not be more accommodating. I changed hotels at the last minute and they made sure to set me up with a pick-up close to our hotel. The tour was fantastic. Learned a few new things. We even had the pleasure of a duo of dolphins follow our boat and play in the waves that our boat made. So much fun.
