break from the typical theme park vacation while in Florida, then get
the family down to the Everglades Day Safari in Fort Myers. The

way to experience everything that the Everglades have to offer. You and
your family will spend about an hour on an oversized airboat, skipping
through parts of the Everglades that are filled with various types of
wildlife such as alligators and birds. The airboat ride also takes you
through the Miccosukee Indian Reservation, where you can see an actual Miccosukee village.

mangrove forest as you sail your way towards the Gulf of Mexico. On this
memorable journey, prepare to gaze upon such water animals as dolphin
and manatees, plus many other types of Everglades wildlife. Join your
knowledgeable guides as they verbally direct your tour with every detail
about the everglades.

some time exploring the Big Cypress Preserve National Park. The Big
Cypress Preserve is home to many different types of wildlife such as
alligators, black bear and a variety of beautiful and interesting
butterflies and insects. You never know what exactly what you will see when
you take a trip into the Big Cypress Preserve National Park.
On the final leg of the tour, trek through the cypress swamp on the
Everglades Day Safari Nature Walk. Explore the marvel that is
the cypress swamp, but his time do it on foot. Take a leisurely hike along the trail and spot some
of the wildlife that call the cypress swamp their home. Animals like
deer, otter, feral pigs and even the rare Florida panther, have been
known to roam around the natural walk trail, to make this portion of the
Day Safari a bit more personal.
