After a morning hotel pickup in the Miami area, it’s off to one of the most beautiful and unique places on earth — the Florida Everglades, a 1.5-million-acre wetlands preserve on the southern tip of Florida — for an exciting airboat adventure and nature tour.
On this guided, 30-minute excursion through the Everglades, skim along the grassy water while listening to fun facts and learning about the area’s subtropical ecosystem from the experienced captain. Look for a variety of wildlife, like alligators, fish, turtles and wading birds in their natural habitat — an exciting and unspoiled wilderness. It’s wet, it’s wild and it’s loads of fun.
Then spend a 1.5 hours at Everglades Alligator Farm. Walk along a jungle trail to see the alligators, crocodiles, caimans and other wildlife. Check out a great exhibit of local and exotic snakes. And take in an alligator education seminar as experts describe all aspects of these creatures, the largest reptiles in North America. See the primitive capturing techniques once used by Native American Indians. This 4.5-hour tour ends with a hotel drop-off in Miami.
