Welcome to the Everglades Day Safari, Florida’s Finest Eco Tour!

The Everglades Day Safari provides the finest full-day, guided eco-tour of the majestic Everglades. Each tour is designed to explore the four main ecosystems that make up the ‘glades: the sawgrass prairie, mangrove estuary, cypress swamp and pine savannah.

Tours depart daily from the Fort Lauderdale area on Florida’s east coast and the Fort Myers area on Florida’s west coast. See the MAP for pick-up locations near Sanibel, Fort Myers, Naples, Fort Lauderdale, Miami and more.

Our all-inclusive safari is only $159 for adults and $139 for children ages 5-11. Prices do not include gratuities.

Our full day tour may be a long day for some small children, so we developed a shorter tour with them in mind. Kids of all ages can enjoy the Everglades on Captain Bob’s Excellent Everglades Adventure, which includes an airboat tour and an interactive reptile show!

Airboat Ride

Our West Coast adventure is a truly amazing airboat ride on a 1500 acre inland lake where there are more alligators per acre than anywhere in the world. For one hour you will be surrounded by more alligators of all sizes and a variety of birds of all shapes, sizes and colors. It is a remarkable ride.

Boat Ride
This relaxing 90 minute boat cruise departs from the Everglades National Park and navigates through the mangrove estuary known as the 10,000 Islands. On this fully narrated cruise, dolphin, manatee and many shore birds are often spotted on the way out towards the Gulf of Mexico.

Lunch – Time for a break!
Our great Southern lunch is consumed with gusto at the Seafood Depot. This 1928, Spanish-style stucco structure began as the old Everglades train depot. The building has housed numerous restaurants and appeared in the movie “Winds across the Everglades.” You are sure to enjoy the food and the atmosphere. Fodor’s has given the Seafood Depot an excellent rating of 5.
