Everglades National
Park Institute

Explore the Park through Naturalist-Led Educational Eco-Adventures


Explore “off the beaten track” in Florida Bay by powerboat, paddle through the mangrove forests in Lake Ingram and go ashore on Cape Sable’s remote, seldom visited natural beach. This can be a great chance to see American Saltwater Crocodiles, along with some of the many birds Everglades National Park is famous for.  Your Captain and Naturalist will help you learn about the ecosystems and wildlife of the mangrove forests, along with stories of the fascinating history of early settlers on a full-day adventure.
