Full description
Take a leisurely ride through the Everglades National Park's 10,000-island ecosystem, where you will enjoy perfect photo opportunities of birds and other wildlife in their natural habitat. Stop on an uninhabited barrier island, where your Florida certified Master Naturalist guide will take you on an walk and help you discover even more photo opportunities of this impressive environment.

Your guide will be on the hunt for birds and wildlife of all types — roseate spoonbills, osprey, ibis, great blue herons, tri-color herons, snowy egrets, shore birds, and bald eagles as well as other animals like dolphins, sea turtles, manatees, and other saltwater creatures. The boat, limited to 6 passengers with comfortable seating, is a large, stable platform for birding and photography. There's even space for a camera tripod, so feel free to bring large telephoto lenses.

The Everglades Birding, Wildlife, and Photo Expedition is essentially a 2-part adventure.
