The Everglades are a unique and breathtaking natural experience. This region of tropical wetlands boasts about 1.2 million acres of grasslands, hardwood hammocks, pine rockland, estuarine mangrove forests, and other distinctive ecosystems.
Experience this secretly preserved wilderness in its lush glory from the seat of a comfortable airboat. Your airboat captain will narrate a thirty-minute ride as you delve deep into the Everglades wilderness. See breathtaking panoramic views, lush vegetation, and unparalleled tranquility. Keep an eye open for alligators, native flora and fauna, and other exotic animals in their natural habitat. You’ll have the chance to snap photos of alligators and to explore the jungle trail.
Though there were attempts to drain the Everglades in the late 1800s, issues with canals and floods resulted in a repeal of those efforts. By the 1940s, the water from the Everglades was being diverted to cities. About 50% of the Everglades were eventually converted into farmland. When a 1970s environmental study discovered that South Florida’s ecosystem was completely dependent on the Everglades, the state decided to make their restoration a priority and protected the area. Get exploring and don’t pass up this opportunity to explore the preserved, exotic Everglades!
