If you’re visiting South Florida, one thing that is a must-see is the Florida Everglades. This unique area, actually a slow-moving grassy river, contains an abundance of wildlife from plants to animals. There are even endangered species that call the Everglades home which you may get a glimpse of while there, such as the leatherback turtle. An Everglades Tour in Fort Lauderdale is best experienced on an airboat!
What to Bring on a Daytime Tour of the Florida Everglades
If you plan to take a daytime airboat tour of the Everglades, there are several must-have items you should bring with you. This includes bug spray, sunglasses, sunscreen, and protective sun wear. A hat is especially important in the summertime to help protect against the intense sun. If you’re booking your adventure during the months of November through February, bring warm clothes to layer to protect against winter winds.
Of course, you’ll want to capture your memories with a camera, so be sure to bring one with you! Other important items you may choose to bring include snacks and drinks (bottled water is provided for you). If you are of legal age, alcoholic beverages are permitted.
In the event of rain, you may want to bring an umbrella or other protective gear, such as a poncho. While we will cancel in cases of inclement weather, the boat will still be up for an adventure even if it rains.
Binoculars make a great accessory, so you can get a better view of birds taking flight off in the distance, or a closer look into the eyes of a gator!
What to Bring on an Evening Everglades Tour in Fort Lauderdale
Just like on a daytime tour, you should bring bug spray with you to help keep away the biting and stinging insects on a sunset airboat ride. Wear weather-appropriate clothing, and bring along a camera, snacks, drinks, binoculars, and rain gear as well.
