Journey through Nature

The Headwaters of the Florida Everglades are like an enclosed kingdom. The breathtaking views are filled with mangrove forests, shimmering waters, and marshlands as far as the eye can see. As you get deeper into the ecosystem, areas like Lake Cypress are home to hundreds of species, including the Florida alligator. As the king of the Everglades, alligators are the rulers and play a crucial role in maintaining the balance of the ecosystem. As sharp-eyes creatures, they use their eyes, perched on either side of their heads, to offer them a panoramic view of their surroundings. They're not just spectators, though - they're hunters, skilled at detecting the slightest movement of potential prey.

What is an Airboat Tour?

An airboat is the best way to explore the wild side of Florida. The flat-bottom vessel that is powered by a mighty propeller can have your family gliding in just six inches of water in areas you could have never imagined. Unlike traditional boats, airboats can navigate harder-to-reach areas, allowing you to witness the hidden gems of the wilderness up close and personal. Keep your eyes peeled as you cut through the water! You might spot a sunbathing alligator, a graceful heron taking flight, or even a group of playful otters. These magical moments create memories that last a lifetime.
