Drove back to the boat tour first thing - it was kind of windy that day and there weren't as many gators out along the river as what we have seen before. Great tour

I grew up going to Myakka regularly and this addition is great to the park. Allows you to understand that FL really is a rain forest. Great education for those interested in life. It's hot bring water.

Fun and not too high up from the ground. The tower at the end of the short walkway gives you the opportunity to climb up far above the trees and see a lot of birds. We didn't encounter any spiders or other scary stuff. Be...More

not just the canopy walkway but the State park. Go see some gators, visit the marshy area, climb the canopy walkway, even eat there and have a beer ( there is a pretty good selection)

We had a great time! The captain was so knowledgeable and entertaining. We all learned a lot. Definitely recommend getting there a little early to make sure you get a good seat.

This wonderful canopy walk brings you up into the trees to see the different ecosystems that inhabit the changeable landscapes. The kids love to climb and walk along the swing bridge. The view at the top is the best!

Great view above the tree tops. Beautiful canopy walkway and very well built. It's a wonder how the hard work it took to build this.

Unless you're in the area, the Canopy Walkway is not worth the travel. It's simply a suspension type bridge at tree top level in the middle of a forest. Regrettably, Florida is as flat as it gets so your view is tree tops in all...More

No it isn't. It is a walk through the top of trees. Therefore, it would be hard to make it handicapped accessible. You can't put an elevator in the jungle I don't think. You barely get cell phone service. But it is a... More

most likely yes..but I would suggest checking with office upon entry....dogs generally are welcome in MOST places in the park, leashed and well behaved of course
