The Everglades were definitely one of the most interesting things we did while in southern Florida. We thought it was really cool how the people changed from being mostly Spanish speaking to like the guys from Swamp People.
We did both an airboat and a swamp buggy tour which we organised through Captain Jack’s Airboat Tours. The airboat tour was really fun. While we only saw a couple of gators, we also saw racoons and it was super fun speeding along in the boat.
After the airboat ride we went on a swamp buggy tour where we saw deer, more racoons, eagles and even some manatees. We were shown markings on some tall trees and were advised that that they were bear claw marks from bears climbing the trees.
I made a video of the day which you can check out here if you’d like!
