The Everglades National Park is a one-of-a-kind wetland ecosystem in southern Florida. Formed over thousands of years from the overflow of heavy rainfall into Lake Okeechobee, the Everglades extend southwest from Lake Okeechobee to the shores of Florida Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Its 5,000 square miles of slow-flowing water support grasslands, thick forests, and diverse groups of animal, marine, and bird life it is called the River of Grass it is classified as one of the largest rivers in the world.
Often referred to as the “River of Grass,” or the forever glades, the swampy Everglades create endless prairies of sawgrass that rise 3 to 10 feet above the surface of the water. The sawgrass is often so dense that travel is possible only through natural water passages. The lush vegetation of the Everglades also includes mangroves, cypress, palms, pines, and hardwood hammocks, and small islands. What many do not know is that the water is actually quite shallow in most places—so much so that you can stand in it! Don’t be alarmed if our guides take a quick dip during your airboat ride.
The Everglades are known for rich bird life, particularly large wading birds, such as the roseate spoonbill, great blue heron, and a variety of egrets.
