What to expect
After a morning hotel pickup in the Greater Fort Myers area, travel to Everglades Day Safari for this 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 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 Myers. Please note: If your hotel is not on the pickup list, meet at the Parker Promenade in Fort Myers.

Everglades day trip you’d love to take
We had a wonderful day with Zac as our guide. From Airboat ride, Cypress nature walk, Alligators everywhere, boat ride through Mangroves of the 10,000 islands. All the while Zac provided constant insights into the wildlife and surroundings.

It was an amazing adventure through the Everglades across many different ecosystems.

Perfectly coordinated from point to point and lunch plus bathrooms! Traveling in comfort in air conditioned high ceiling van made it enjoyable.

Loved it and appropriate for family’s young and old.

Best Thing We Did on Our Trip to Florida
May 2021
We had a great time on the Western Everglades Adventure Tour. Between the guided nature walk and the fan boat ride, we saw a ton of interesting birds. If you want to see an alligator then this is the tour for you. We saw dozens of alligators on the fan boat ride. The kids in our tour group counted 76 by the end of the fan boat ride, but i am sure we saw more than that. The reptile show after the fan boat ride was also a lot of fun. Getting to hold some of the reptiles was an awesome experience.

Pete was an excellent tour guide. He was great with the kids in our tour group and he made a point of remembering the names of everyone in the group so he could address us directly when we had questions. He also has a background in wildlife biology so he really knows his stuff. His knowledge of the local flora and fauna was impressive. If you are going to be visiting Fort Myers or Naples, do yourself a favor and go on the Western Everglades Adventure Tour.

Great tour
My family and I had a great time on this tour. Pete is very knowledgeable and friendly. The tour started with an easy walk to the marsh. Then we took an airboat ride with Pete and Captain Kenny. This was a blast. We saw a lot of alligators and different species of birds. The tour concludes with an interactive reptile show. We definitely recommend this tour.

I was so impressed with the skill and attention of our guide Pete. He knew my children's names, and took their endless questions with such patience. My four children, ages 7-17 had an amazing time. Highlight of their trip. Saw so many animals, large and small. Plants, insects, birds, reptiles galore. The bird sighing sheet was a big hit. This was an amazing day!

Fun, educational, very enjoyable day in the Everglades.
My husband and 11 year daughter were very excited to see the wildlife of the Everglades. My teenage daughters and I were a bit more leery as we are a bit more squeamish about snakes, alligators etc. But we had an absolutely fabulous day!
Our guide Rhett was extremely knowledgeable, personable and enthusiastic to share all kinds of facts and information.
All five of us enjoyed the walk where we learned about the plants and animals of southwest Florida. On the airboat ride, with a very knowledgeable and personal captain, TJ, we saw many alligators, turtles and different species of birds. The interactive live animal experience was very informative and interesting and this mom who avoids even looking at snakes at all costs even held one!!
A great experience, highly recommend!

Pete is the best
All 7 of us, individually, were in awe of Pete’s knowledge, demeanor and not too pushy presence. Best knowledge of birds and fauna that I have ever come across. Amazing time for ages 9-75!! Thank you!! We will be back!

Rhett was a very knowledgeable guide and the airboat ride was great - lots of beautiful birds and plenty of gators, big and small, very close up. Lots of great photo opportunities between the ride and the snakes afterwards. Highly recommend!

Feb 2020
What an exciting day. Our initial boat ride was less than spectacular due to the guide. Thereafter, everything was nonstop. Alex was well educated and very informative. She was well worth the cost of the trip. Good lunch. The air boat driver, Max, was good. Highly recommend.

Amazing adventure
Spectacular tour of the Everglades! Tour guide Ben was amazing with a plethora of knowledge throughout the day!
Highly recommend for a whole day adventure! Two boat rides, drive through the depths of everglades, 2 mile hike into the everglades and lunch in Everglade City! Saw many different varieties of birds, alligators, plant life and history of the everglades! Even saw the smallest operating post office in the US!!!
