Miccosukee Indian Heritage Airboat Tour
Skip across the shallow waters and sawgrass prairie to a distant Miccosukee island as your guides prepare you for a day of natural wonders and cultural discovery! Watch in wonder as great blue herons, egrets, wood storks and ibises take flight as we travel into the true heart of the Florida Everglades. It is here among the sawgrass prairie that remote cypress islands filled with Seminole and Miccosukee history still exist and it is here that our adventure begins …
Only accessible by airboat, we travel miles into the Everglades to experience two historic Miccosukee island camps. We walk the islands that they once called home to hear how the Miccosukee families for generations learned to live in harmony with what many considered an unlivable landscape.
Seek out the family of wild gators that live near the big camp. If they care to show themselves, our guide will demonstrate his ability to “speak gator.” To the amazement of all, the gators respond.
