Everglades Expeditions

Everglades Backwater Tour

One of the most unexpected and daring journeys in Florida is accessible when you travel the Everglades’ wild backwaters with our trained field biologists and naturalist guides. This is a day of discovery and exploration in one of the world’s most threatened and beautiful wild places: The Florida Everglades and Big Cypress Preserve.

First, stroll through the black and white gallery of world-renowned photographer Clyde Butcher. His pictures awaken a true sense of understanding and respect for South Florida’s natural beauty.

Next, start the trek at the trailhead for an experience that is only available to 0.1% of all the people who have ever visited the Everglades. While you wade in clear knee- to waist-deep waters, you discover lush cypress domes as native orchids and bromeliads hang overhead and learn why conservationists have described this area as "a beautiful, rugged, subtropical landscape.”

After drying off, we move on to a remote and idyllic fishing village in the heart of the Everglades. There we enjoy an authentic lunch grown from the rich glades culture of just-caught seafood and fresh-from-the-ground vegetables.

Through the eyes of our expert field guides, this rare and unusual ecosystem comes alive with wonder and beauty on a trip never to be forgotten. The emotions experienced on this expedition over the years have been strong and abiding - come see why!
