Airboat Ride and Nature Walk with Naturalist in Everglades National Park

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
With an expert naturalist guide, go on an amazing nature walk in Everglades National Park. Immerse yourself in the beauty of different ecosystems in the actual National Park. View a wide variety of birds and alligators up close! With your master naturalist guide, discover the flora and fauna of this wetland wilderness, and why it is a unique national treasure. This is a 1-hour and 30 minute dry walk. Next, enjoy the thrill of an exhilarating 1-hour air boat ride into the heart of the REAL Everglades, where wildlife abounds! This is no touristy type trip. Learn about the heritage of the Miccosukee Tribe as you visit a remote, historic hammock tree island village where they used to live. You can only get there by boat and on this tour!  See wildlife and alligators where they should be seen, in the wild, and up close! Enjoy a scenic drive through the Everglades, narrated by your master naturalist guide. We will have you back for lunch or an afternoon trip to the beach.
  • Tour includes two separate adventures: a walking tour and airboat ride
  • Enjoy two nature hikes in Everglades National Park
  • Naturalist guide to maximize learning opportunities
  • Pickup and drop-off from hotel, airport, or port included
What to Expect
Plan for an early morning pickup from your Fort Lauderdale or Miami area hotel, or a local port. You can also have your luggage stored free during your tour. Head to Everglades National Park, where your experienced naturalist guide leads you on two separate walks, sharing information about the various ecosystems within the park. Visit a hardwood hammock with mature trees, tropical plants, and wildlife. Listen to the songs of many species of birds in the treetops. Next, board an airboat for a thrilling ride through the marshland, where wild alligators live. Visit an American Indian tree island village and learn about the customs and culture of the local Miccosukee people. This tour is great for nature lovers and those who want to retreat from the bustle of Miami and see its wilder side. End your tour with drop-off to your hotel or at the airport for an afternoon flight.

No, further north. However, I’m pretty sure they will pick up in south Miami because the route to the Everglades runs nearby. Suggest you contact them directly; call phone number in their website, NOT the one in Trip... More
