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.
Immerse yourself in the Everglades wilderness with this guided, primitive paddle as we study tropical hammock, sawgrass prairie, and mangrove ecology, the influence of water flow on Everglades ecosystems and how humans have impacted the environment in the Park. Meet your experienced Institute Naturalist at Nine Mile Pond.
