About Our Everglades Tours
We offer Miami’s most unique and in depth Everglades Tour. We don’t take you to the Everglades in a big bus or van and drop you off at an airboat ride company. We offer much more. Our expert guides actually take you INTO the Everglades and Big Cypress National Preserve on an adventure you will never forget. We are the ONLY company with a permit from The National Park Service to operate ground tours inside of Big Cypress National Preserve for a reason…..we know and love the Florida Everglades.
Our Tours are designed for those looking for a totally private, unique, and very comprehensive Everglades Adventure. Our professional guides will take you by Jeep deep into the heart of the Everglades, where you will see animal and plant life found nowhere else on Earth. We finish with a thrilling airboat ride that visits two Hardwood Hammocks (‘tree islands’) that rise up out of the Sawgrass Marshes.
Detailed Tour Description
Our professional guides pick you up at your location and head West on the Tamiami Trail, the first man-made road through the Everglades. As we pass by endless Sawgrass prairies dotted with hardwood hammocks, you will learn about the history of Florida and the Glades, starting three hundred million years ago. Our guides talk about the limestone geology and unique thunderstorm driven hydrology and why the Everglades is one of only two wetlands world wide to be named a World Heritage Site, a Ramsar Wetland of International Importance and an International Biosphere Reserve. You will learn about the seven distinct Everglades ecosystems, all of which are connected by fresh water and wholly dependent on one another for survival. As we drive into Big Cypress National Preserve you will learn about Cypress Swamps and Rock Pine forests and see the transition from one ecosystem to another.
We then take you off the beaten path where the ancient history of Big Cypress is told in a fun and compelling way. We tell you about the Native People who lived here 3000 years ago and about the Miccosukee Indians and Gladesmen who make The Everglades their home today. While the story unfolds you are likely to see Gators, Wood Storks, Ospreys, White Tailed Deer, Fox Squirrel, Hawks, Egrets, Great Blue Herons and countless other animals…..all in the wild as they should be seen.
We also show you the famous Sweetwater Strand, one of the most photographed locations in the entire Florida Everglades. This is a chance for you to really experience the deep solitude and isolation the Everglades offers.
The next segment of our tour is an hour-long private airboat ride through the Sawgrass Marshes with a seasoned boat Captain. This airboat ride is unique in that it makes two stops: the last Hardwood Hammock or “Tree Island” the Miccosukee Indians inhabited, right up until 1975, and a smaller island with rudimentary structures used to rehabilitate injured Everglades’ animals before releasing them back into the wild. Our airboat tour is a lot of fun and if you make your request ahead of time, we can incorporate an awesome “picnic” lunch on one of the tree islands!
On our trip back to Miami, we conclude by talking about the current efforts to save and protect the Everglades and the sanctuary that is home to over 36 endangered and threatened species AND supplies all of South Florida with every drop of fresh water it consumes.
If you are interested in a real Everglades experience, you need to book this tour. No one else in Miami offers anything remotely close to our private Everglades Tour. There is a reason EVERY 5 Star hotel concierge uses us as their preferred Everglades Tour Provider. Let us show you just how amazing the Everglades really are.
