The Everglades National Park is a one of a kind wetland ecosystem in southern Florida. Formed over thousands of years from the overflow of heavy rainfall into Lake Okeechobee, the Everglades extend southwest from Lake Okeechobee to the shores of the Florida Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Its 5,000 square miles of slow flowing water support grasslands, thick forests and diverse groups of animal, marine and bird life.
Often referred to as the "River of Grass," or the forever glades, the swampy Everglades create endless prairies of sawgrass that rise 3 to 10 feet above the surface of the water. The sawgrass is often so dense that travel is possible only through natural water passages. The lush vegetation of the Everglades also includes mangrove, cypress, palms, pines and hardwood hammocks, or small islands. What many do not know is that the water is actually quite shallow in most places—so much so that you can stand in it! Don’t be alarmed if our guides take a quick dip during your airboat ride.
