On Everglades Tours, encounter breathtaking panoramic views and the lush vegetation and tranquility of this unique ecosystem. Be on the lookout for alligators, native flora and fauna, as well as other exotic wildlife in their habitat. Watch a live alligator handling show before dining dockside, immersed in one of the country’s most beautiful and exotic natural environments.
Everglades Tours give you a glimpse into the past, presenting you with 1.2 million acres of grasslands, hardwood hammocks and swamps, and creatures that have survived and evolved from the time of the dinosaurs. Travel back in time to the depths of this secret wilderness aboard a comfortable and safe airboat for a memorable 30-minute, fully narrated ride.

Escape the hustle and bustle of Miami (transportation provided) with Everglades Tours, learning about such Florida landmarks as the Tamiami Trail and the Miami River on your journey. Once you have arrived at the park, an experienced captain will take you aboard an airboat and narrate 30 minutes of Everglade history, wildlife, and breathtaking swamp panoramas.
You will see the legendary Florida alligator in its natural habitat, and once you see one, you’ll start to notice them everywhere. The swamp is loaded with these powerful predators! If you’re lucky, you may just catch one in a feeding frenzy. Once your airboat ride through the swamp has ended, you will have the chance to see a live alligator wildlife show and to explore the Jungle Walkway at Everglades Safari Park.
The Wildlife Nature Show will get your heart pounding, letting you watch as trained handlers get within striking distance of massive crocodiles, alligators, and other exotic creatures of the swamp and the outback. You will learn about the conservation of one of the planet’s most fragile ecosystems. Those who feel so inclined can have their photo taken with an alligator after the show.
The Jungle Walkway is a great spot for birdwatching, and for checking out the reptiles, flora and fauna that are endemic to the Florida Everglades. Strolling out onto the elevated Observation Platform, you’ll have the chance to look out over the swamp, and to walk by a replica Cheekee Village and accompanying exhibits.
Once you’ve finished your sightseeing, enjoy relaxing dockside, surrounded by wildflowers, herons, hawks, and perhaps even an alligator or two. This entire excursion, including transportation to and from Miami, and the airboat ride, lasts approximately five hours, so plan accordingly for a half-day trip.
