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 Experience Tour

Your Everglades Experience begins in Miami, where you will be collected by our special Big Bus coach. You'll journey out to the Everglades Holiday Park, a 50-minute drive away within the Everglades Natural Park. First up is a journey through the famed 'river of grass' on an unique Florida airboat, complete with live guide and complimentary pre-journey photo. On the airboat, your guide will point out wildlife like turtles, birds and alligators. The experience concludes with a wildlife show where you will see alligators expertly handled by keepers using traditional Seminole Indian techniques. Before your coach journey back to Miami, you will have free time to explore the park, where you can buy tickets for special animal encounters, grab a bite to eat, explore the souvenir shop or relax by the water.
