At the first destination, guests can take an interpretive walking tour or grab kayaks to see the rich area of flora and fauna. You could be paddling alongside dolphins here, no kidding! This tour is limited to six guests also.

This easy-paced Orchid and Alligator Kayaking Adventure with a naturalist guide reveal beautiful butterflies, bromeliads, flowers, and wild orchids, not your typical Everglades experience! However, it’s never boring when alligators, turtles, and manatees are lurking beside you in the still waters.

Pro Tip: If you see an alligator out hiking, experts say to run in a straight line, directly away from the alligator. Alligators will typically chase a human only to defend their territory.
