Boat Ride through Florida’s Everglades

It was a couple of days before the Memorial Day weekend in Miami. So, I decided to go to Florida’s famous Everglades. About two days before my friends came to Miami. It was a nice 2014 Spring day and I was in store for an amazing experience.

At my hostel, I was speaking to the staff. After making some friends, one of them informed me to take a boat tour on the everglades. It is always a good idea to make friends with locals. They recommend you to local attractions that would be overlooked. I paid about 80 dollars for the whole experience. The 80 dollars included the bus ride to and from my hostel.

After a 45 minute bus ride, we finally arrived to the Everglades. The air-boats fit about 7 people. If you don’t feel comfortable, you can always sit in the middle of the boat. You are less likely to fall over and get bitten by agitator (just joking).

Once on the air-boat, we got to see more of the Everglades. It is truly a beautiful place. You can spot tons of wildlife everywhere you turn. From turtles to agitators.

 

Unfortunately, due to the strange weather patterns, the Everglades are becoming too shallow for boats to pass through. Many people will be out of work. Beautiful nature is being destroyed. Do what you can to support! Try to recycle more!

After the boat tour, you can visit the gift shop. Not many interesting items expect the alligator tail and teeth. If you eat meat, they also sell alligator meat. They also let you pet baby alligators. When you are in Miami, definitely stop by the Everglades.

  1. Forgive me for this comment: maybe the alligators can eat the agitators. (My blogging software keeps “correcting” my spelling, too!) The airboat rides are great fun.I think I took a picture of that same alligator.

  2. I would be so scared if I ever got to see a real alligator! One of my biggest fears!
    It’s such a shame that we as humans destroy our planet and beautiful places like the Everglades with it. We need to think more about how our actions influence our surroundings.
    A great post!

  3. There was a television series back in 1961 titled The Everglades, starring Ron Hayes as a constable. He road around the ‘Glades in an airboat, and I thought that was just too cool as a kid. A few years ago I actually got the chance to do the exact same thing, and it was great.
