About the Everglades:
The Everglades is a unique wetland ecosystem in southern Florida, with 5,000 square miles of slow-flowing water supporting grasslands, thick forests and diverse groups of animal life. Often referred to as the 'River of Grass', the swampy Everglades create endless prairies of sawgrass that rise 3 to 10 feet above the surface of the water. The sawgrass is often so dense that travel is possible only through shallow natural water passages, hence the use of those famous flat-bottomed Florida airboats. The Everglades are known for birds like the roseate spoonbill, great blue heron and a variety of egrets. Marine life includes alligators, American crocodiles, soft shelled turtles and fish such as red teriera, large mouth bass, redfish, and catfish. Other wildlife in the Everglades National Park includes deer, the endangered Florida panther and over 28 different snakes.
About the Everglades Tour:
Your Everglades Experience begins in Miami, where you'll be collected by our special Big Bus coach.

First you'll embark on a journey through the famed 'river of grass' on an unique Florida airboat, complete with live guide. They'll point out wildlife like turtles, birds and alligators. Next up is a wildlife show where you'll see alligators expertly handled by keepers using traditional Seminole Indian techniques. The experience concludes with the opportunity to hold and get photos with a real baby alligator!
