The Everglades

Fishing

Unlike any other place in the world, fishing the Everglades can be rewarding as well as challenging.  Bring your own boat or hire a guide to explore new fishing holes and experience the beauty of the 10,000 Islands, mangrove tunnels, or the backwaters or the Gulf of Mexico.

Birding

Whether you are experienced or a first time bird watcher, you will be amazed at the birds in the Everglades.  Osprey, pileated woodpeckers, ibises, herons and great horned owls are seen daily in Everglades City.  To go where the wildlife is, you know you have arrived in nature at its best.  That is Everglades City.

Kayaking and Canoeing

Whether you explore the backwaters, the 10,000 islands or the Gulf of Mexico, there is no better way to see these areas than with your own muscle power.  Life slows down and nature presents herself in mysterious ways from a kayak or canoe.

The Everglades National Park

The Everglades National Park Gulf Coast Visitor Center is located just south of Everglades City.  This is the entrance to the 10,000 Islands. Accessed only by boat, bring yours, hire a guide or book a tour, there is no place in the world like the Everglades.

Big Cypress National Preserve

Endless exploring happens at the Big Cypress Preserve.  Swamp walks, star gazing, fresh water fishing, hiking, swamp buggy rides, airboats, all of this happens in and around the Big Cypress National Preserve.
