DESCRIPTION: 

Skip across the shallow waters and sawgrass prairie to a distant Miccosukee island as your Native American guide prepares you for a day of natural wonders and cultural discovery! Watch in wonder as Great Blue Herons, Egrets, Woodstorks and Ibis take to flight as we travel into the true heart of the Florida Everglades. It is here among the sawgrass prairie that remote cypress islands filled with Seminole and Miccosukee history still exist and it is here that our adventure begins . . .

Only accessible by airboat, we will travel miles into the Everglades to experience a historic Miccosukee island camp. We will walk the islands our guide’s family called home to hear how the Miccosukee families learned to live in harmony for generations in what many considered an unlivable landscape.

Seek out the family of wild gators that live on the big camp.  If they care to show themselves our guide will “speak gator” and to the amazement of all, the gators respond.
