Read about the tour

You're the adventurous type, right? You want to see the Everglades, but you don't need a guide. You want to go at your own pace. The My Everglades Experience is perfect for you. We drive to the Park and let you explore the waterways by yourself, on your own boat, and driving the boat is a blast!

Ideally when exploring nature, you want to take your time to savoir things you find special, and this tour lets you do it.

Search for alligators and wildlife. Then, have a picnic lunch on the boat. You can buy snacks and drinks at the general store. The cafe sells sandwiches and salads.

The park is also home to Largemouth bass fishing. Bring your own fishing gear, or rent a pole for $15 at the bait shop.

The 14 foot jon boat is equipped with an outboard motor. The boat seats 4 passengers. Drivers must be 21 or older and have a drivers license and credit card. A $250 refundable deposit is required
