Everglades Family Adventure Tour from Greater Fort Myers/Naples Area

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    After a morning hotel pickup in the Greater Fort Myers/Naples area, travel to Everglades Day Safari for this airboat tour.

    On this guided excursion, skim along the marshes and swamps of the Western Everglades and see herons, egrets, gallinules and spoonbills while listening to fun facts and learning about the area’s ecosystem from the experienced captain. Look for a variety of wildlife, especially alligators, in their natural habitat. There are more alligators here per acre than anywhere else in the world. The guide will point out where they are—early and often.

    After the airboat ride, check out the reptile show at Captain Bob’s Excellent Adventure. This educational presentation features alligators, snakes, turtles and more. Ask questions and join in the fun of learning about these amazing creatures.

    The tour concludes with a relaxing return trip to Fort Myers.

    Please note: If your hotel is not on the pickup list, meet at the Parker Promenade in Fort Myers.

    We had the best trip ever and we got our money’s worth. You have to take the bus where Jungle Pete tells stories from the area and about the wildlife and wilderness. Remember to tip Jungle Pete - he’s so passionate about it all.
