When on Sanibel Island, you are so close to so many great attractions! While there is plenty to do on the Island, Sanibel’s prime location means you can also hop over to the mainland and enjoy one of the most beautiful natural areas in the United States: The Everglades.
Though the majority of land in South Florida is covered by the Everglades, it is possible to explore this one-of-a-kind natural environment in one day, leaving plenty of time for Sanibel fun before you head home.
One fantastic company that caters to you is Everglades Adventures. Their wonderful guides make it easy for you to get out and explore the Glades. They will pick you up free of charge from the Park and Ride before Fort Myers Beach on San Carlos Boulevard. There is no charge for parking. Then you are whisked away in a roomy air-conditioned tour bus for a day of exploration in the Everglades.
Pure Nature, the way you like it, is what you will find in the Everglades. Who hasn’t heard of the Airboat rides? As you glide over the water on the Sea of Grass you will wonder why you never did it before and surely won’t forget it! The guides will take you to areas that normally you would not be able to access on your own. Let them do the driving and relax as they explain the wildlife native to the Glades and of course, keep your eye out for the alligators.
You will also get the chance to hop aboard a Swamp Buggy ride, which will lift you up above the sawgrass and provide you with fantastic wildlife watching and beautiful photo opportunities. Black bears, white-tailed deer, raccoons and you guessed it, more alligators!
Follow up your wildlife viewing with the Interactive Animal Experience! Get up close and personal and hold a fifty-pound snake, tropical parrots, macaws, tortoises, and more alligators!
The tour also includes a nature drive and a meal at a local eatery where you are given the opportunity to taste alligator! All in all, Everglades Adventures is sure to provide you with a day you will always remember. Fun-filled and action-packed, you are sure to have a blast and make memories that will last a lifetime, all the while returning to Pelican’s Roost on lovely Sanibel Island to enjoy the remainder of your vacation.
Enjoy your day trip off-island!
