    We had a good time!

We booked our ticket with a transportation from our hotel. Just be sure when you book this option you know it is not a private car service to the Everglades. Other than the wasted 2 hours picking up and dropping off other passengers it was a good excursion. Thank you.

  • Everglades National Park: Private 2.5-Hour Photo Safari

    9. Everglades National Park: Private 2.5-Hour Photo Safari

    The entire Everglades area, including Everglades National Park, is a wonderful place for birding. With over 300 species of birds throughout the year, it is the only park that was established for its biological and ecological considerations rather than its geological features. However, most of the 1.5 million acres in the park are flooded, and essentially out of reach for the average birder and photographer. This tour provides you with the opportunity to take your equipment to these areas; this experience is only for 1 or 2 participants, and there is plenty of room to take your tripods. Maximize your photo shooting opportunities on this 2.5-hour private experience. On other tours, your guide must balance the needs and desires of all aboard, but with this private tour, you are the focus. If you need to reposition for lighting, wait until a particular subject is where you want them to be,...
