Full description

The Central Florida Everglades are natural wonders, best explored with locals who know their backwaters. The beautiful landscape and expert guidance of your captain will make this tour a trip that you'll never forget. Guests on the Scenic Nature Tour explore narrow water trails engulfed in the brush of the Central Florida Everglades. On this tour you'll stop periodically, hoping to spot Florida's state reptile, the American Alligator, in its natural setting.

Witness rare and endangered birds swooping effortlessly through the skies as the sunshine warms your body and the wind whips through your hair. Other wildlife abounds throughout the trip. This tour is perfect for groups and families looking to explore and learn about the unexpected side of Central Florida. A longer trip on a Detailed Nature Tour of 1-hour increases the number of encounters with Florida's wildlife, especially the American Alligator, which can reach up to 15 feet in length and 1,000 pounds. You'll experience nature right alongside turtles, bald eagles, blue herons, deer, and a wide variety of waterfowl in their natural environment, not in captivity. Be sure to also check out the Gem Mining Station. You will be able to purchase buckets filled with treasures that are native to Florida and take them to the mining station. While mining, you will discover various gems, alligator teeth, shark teeth, rocks, and other treasures. There will be an additional charge for gem mining bags or buckets. A restaurant with indoor or patio seating is available, where you can dine before or after your tour (at your own expense).

The boat ride was really fun. The guide was courteous and informative. We saw gators and several types of birds on our tour. The lunch was good and our two grandsons enjoyed the gem mining activity. We all enjoyed the butterfly enclosure. The butterflies were beautiful and we enjoyed them sitting on our finger eating nectar. It was a fun and low key afternoon well worth the entry price.

We took this trip last minute and didn't really expect it to be anything exciting. However, we were very wrong we had a great time with an exceptional guide/boat operator really got to understand a little bit about the ecosystem and definitely up close and personal with the wildlife. Would definitely do it again and would recommend it to others. We did the one hour tour and we definitely recommend that over the 30 minutes.
