Top 3 Reasons to Take a Sunset Tour of the Everglades

Top 3 Reasons to Take a Sunset Tour of the Everglades

Whether it’s your first time in Fort Lauderdale or you visit frequently, there are always many new wonders to discover in the area. If you’ve never experienced an airboat tour of the Everglades, it’s about time you did! If you’re still on the fence or need another reason to get started scheduling your tour, take a look at these top three reasons to take a beautiful sunset tour of the Everglades.

Reason #1: A Once-In-a-Lifetime Experience

Have you ever wanted to go hang gliding, skydiving, or rock climbing? Airboating is another thrill you need to experience at least once in this life. Gliding across the water, we can reach speeds up to 40 miles per hour. An airboat tour gives you an up close and personal view of wildlife you would never get on land. You get to see the glades as the animals themselves see the area.

This offer you a true eco tour that gives off virtually no pollution, unlike a motor tour boat. Party with friends and family or take a private tour with our experienced guide, Captain Bill, down the coast.

Reason #2: Wildlife You Can Only Find Here

The Florida Everglades is home to several species of plants and trees native only to wetlands as well as endangered animal species. It houses the Florida panther, the American alligator, the snail kite, and the wood stork, to name a few. With an eco-friendly airboat tour, sailing across the still waters at dusk you can become closer to nature than you’ve ever been before.

The thrill of spotting a lurking croc or gator, or a far-off bobcat on the coast, is better than any thrill you’ll get from visiting your local zoo. Touring with Cypress Outdoor Adventures gives you a unique perspective on the area, as Captain Bill has been studying the Everglades since he was a boy.

Reason #3: Watching the Sun Set on the Everglades

While you’re keeping your eyes peeled for creatures that come out to dine at dusk, don’t forget to take in the scenery around you as the sun touches ground. Sunset is the most beautiful time of day to be out on the water. In a heart-stopping moment you’ll spot nighttime dwellers feeding right near your boat! But nothing compares to the orange-filled sky reflecting on the water and the silhouette of the glades at twilight.

If you still aren’t convinced after this, just take a drive by the Everglades at dusk and see exactly what you’re missing! Though you won’t get the full experience of a sunset airboat tour, it will be enough to make you want to explore much more.

Why You Should Go Bowfishing in the Everglades

Why You Should Go Bowfishing in the Everglades

Bowfishing and the Florida Everglades are a match made in heaven for those who enjoy fishing and exploring the great outdoors. A 1.5 million acre wetland preserve is ideal for fishing as this slow-moving grassy river is teeming with fish. The waters are deep enough to allow for access to larger fish while shallow enough to use a bow and arrow as a method of catching fish.

Sunset Tours Allow You to Experience the Uniqueness of the Florida Everglades

The Everglades is unlike any other natural habitat in North America. It is part tropics and part forest, combing plant and animal species from the United States as well as the West Indies. Home to the Florida panther, American alligator, and plants including arching palm trees, the Everglades host a variety of unique flora and fauna. Freshwater and saltwater fish call the area home.

A private sunset boat tour allows you to experience the best of day and night life of the Everglades. As the sky darkens and night falls, a whole new experience unfolds before your eyes. Nocturnal species unseen in the daytime can be viewed in their natural habitats.

As modern bowfishers on an air boat, you are able to fish in comfort and style No sacrificing any modern conveniences on an airboat tour in the Everglades; we use the latest high-tech equipment including short recurve bows and bright halide lights that allow you to see deep into the water without letting the fish know you’re there.

Bowfishing Tour Guide in the Everglades

A tour guide is essential when bowfishing in the Everglades, not only to learn about the unique plants and animals, but also ensure you do not disturb the natural ecosystems. As home to over 700 types of non-native living things, only invasive species including blue tilapia and other non-native wildlife should be hunted. Hunters can wreak major havoc on the biological order of the area when attempting to fish without experienced guides.
