After a morning hotel pickup in the Fort Lauderdale area, it’s off to one of the most beautiful and unique places on earth—the Florida Everglades.

On this naturalist-guided excursion, begin with a spectacular airboat ride over and through the sawgrass prairies and pond apple forests of the Everglades. Then hop in a van for a wildlife drive through the pine savannahs and cypress forests of Big Cypress National Preserve. Look for alligators, turtles, and birds and keep an eye out for the elusive Florida panther. Next, enjoy a nature walk below towering bald cypress trees. Alligators, herons, egrets and dozens of other species can be spotted at any time throughout the year here. Also, less visible but ever-present otters, bears, pigs, deer, and panthers roam the local wilderness.

After lunch, which includes alligator appetizers, hop on board a scenic boat ride into the Ten Thousand Islands mangrove forest in Everglades National Park. This relaxing cruise features manatees, sea turtles, osprey and a variety of other marine life, including the occasional pod of dolphins feeding in the nearby bay.

The tour concludes with a relaxing return trip to the Fort Lauderdale area.

Wonderful day
, Jun 2021
What a wonderful experience! Zak was a great tour guide and so knowledgeable about all wildlife, you can tell he loves what he does. We have been to Florida many times but never went to the Everglades, I will do this again. The boat rides were great and I loved the nature walk. It was a great day overall and I highly recommend this activity.
Fun and educational
, Jun 2021
Every part was unique, fun and educational. The boat tour around the mangrove islands was perfect! We saw a pod of dolphins and stopped off on an amazing beach on one of the islands. The airboat tour was fun and exhilarating. The nature walk and narrated drive time went by almost too fast. Zak was a remarkably knowledgeable and comedic host/guide. 10 out of 10 would recommend this experience.

Thank you for the excellent review. I'm glad you had time to visit the island. It's an amazing spot in the vast wilderness of the Everglades. And thank you for mentioning Zak. He's great and our guides make all the difference.
Well worth the money if you want to spend a day in the Everglades
, May 2021
The cruise was the best part of the trip! We had dolphins jumping and following our boats! Our tour guide Zak was a fun company and a host. He seemed very knowledgeable about the Everglades ecosystem.

Our tour guide was Marc, he was amazing, very professional, nice , caring and most importantly he loves his job with a passion. He blessed us with his wealth of knowledge. Everything was fun from the car ride to the airboat, the walk, lunch and speed boat ride. I will advise anyone I know to checkout this tour. All the guides were very knowledgeable. There was never a dull moment.
A great all day Everglades tour
, May 2021
Exceptional tour! Five stars. Only 8 people. Marc was a Great nature guide. We had wonderful airboat ride through the Everglades, followed by a really enjoyable board walk through the forest. After a good lunch at a lovely cafe on the water we had a and thrilling boat ride through the cypress islands. Saw many alligators in the Everglades, along the roadside water ditches and at the visitor center. During the second boat trip we saw many dolphin and four manatee. Well worth the cost. We learned a Lot, and it was the highlight of our vacation.
Awesom me experience from beginning to end
, Apr 2021
Learning a great deal from our tour guide about the Everglades wildlife and natural habitats, watching alligators and birds in the canals, and dolphins playing in the wake behind our boat in the mangroves. The entire trip to the Everglades National Park was worthwhile
Boy FLL Trip.

We liked all of it. Both boat rides were great. The alligator stop was really cool and we got to see some great birds thanks to Zach and his wealth of knowledge.
Saffari Day adventure

Zak really does an amazing job and I'm glad you enjoyed your tour with him!
Alligators and dolphins
, Mar 2020
Mark is a first class host. We had perfect weather, saw everything and more than expected. One suggestion to improve even further would be an opportunity for a coffee/drink during the morning as it is a long day with a lot of driving.
Fabulous comprehensive tour
, Feb 2020
This was an excellent extensive one day tour which can be attributed to our very knowledgeable and indefatigable guide Mark and of course to the immense beauty of the Everglades flora an fauna...worth every penny!
