Experience the Wonders of the Everglades
Escape the hustle and bustle of the city and be at one with nature in the beautiful Everglades - a ginormous wetland area that is full of a huge range of species: both animals and plants. It is the perfect opportunity to do something different during your time in Miami, and this tour - with a 30-minute airboat ride - is one of the best Everglades experiences you can get.
An airboat is a more eco-friendly mode of transport, so you can glide across the river at speeds of up to 40mph safe in the knowledge that your tour isn’t harming this unique and incredible ecosystem. From gators to orchids to the thick lush grasses that sway in the breeze, there is so much to see throughout the Everglades Recreation Park. An airboat ride is a real adventure, and you’ll get to experience all of the thrills of animal-spotting from the comfort and safety of this amazing propeller-powered boat: from the shock of seeing alligators wrestle to the joy of spotting the pink wings of a roseate spoonbill, nothing compares to the nature of the Everglades!
Get up Close and Personal with a Baby Alligator
After your wonderful airboat ride, you can stroll through the park - this tour includes access to the exhibits, where you can see around 100 more animals. With educational presentations running throughout the day, grab the chance to learn about the gators and the rest of the wildlife who live here. The animals in the exhibit areas have been rescued and adopted! From the glorious proud peacocks to the slow but wise African spur thigh tortoises, there are so many creatures who call the park home.
To add an extra layer of excitement to your day, you’ll get the chance to hold and pose with a baby alligator! After you sit back and listen to one of the educational presentations, take part in this amazing photo opportunity that will ensure you are the envy of all your friends. It is a rush of exhilaration that you won’t experience in many other places, and a photo of you holding a baby alligator is definitely going to be a souvenir you want to keep forever!
An airboat tour is one of the best ways to experience the Everglades and all of the flora and fauna that exists here - you’ll get to see so much wildlife coexisting in this incredible open space. The highlight is, of course, meeting a baby alligator: it won’t be something you forget in a hurry, and your trip to the Everglades will be an everlasting memory…
