5 Reasons to Take an Alligator Tour in Fort Lauderdale

5 Reasons to Take an Alligator Tour in Fort Lauderdale

What sounds more exciting than an alligator tour in Fort Lauderdale?! Nothing that we can think of! Here at Cypress Outdoor Adventures, the prospect of seeing alligators never gets old or boring, no matter how many we see on a daily basis.

Here are 5 reasons we think you would find an alligator tour in Fort Lauderdale to be an adventure of a lifetime.

  1. You’ll learn amazingly fun facts about the American alligator, which is found here in the Florida Everglades. For instance, Captain Bill will share interesting things such as how newborns are only six to eight inches long when they hatch.
  2. Speaking of the Florida Everglades, you’ll learn fun facts about this extraordinary area, the largest subtropical wetland ecosystem in North America, too. Did you know that the Everglades is actually a slow-moving river? Captain Bill has a lot more interesting things to share with you about the “River of Grass” as it’s referred to as well.
  3. Airboat alligator tours in Fort Lauderdale are safe. If you want to see alligators in their natural habitat in a safe manner, then an airboat tour is the way to go.  On an alligator tour on an airboat, you are still fully immersed in the gators’ environment but have the protection of being on a boat. Where else can you get so close safely?
  4. You need an adventure. Laying on the beach is fun enough, sure. But it’s just not quite the adventure you want or need in your life right now. An airboat ride to see alligators still lets you enjoy the great outdoors, while also fulfilling the thrill seeker within you.
  5. GATORS! Need we say more?! An alligator tour is so exciting BECAUSE YOU WILL PROBABLY SEE GATORS! In their natural habitat!

What to Expect on a Swamp Tour in Fort Lauderdale

What to Expect on a Swamp Tour in Fort Lauderdale

If you’ve never taken a swamp tour in Fort Lauderdale before, you’re really missing out on everything this area has to offer! There’s no better way to see the Florida Everglades than on an airboat tour. This subtropical wetland offers so much to see when it comes to plants, animals, and other wildlife. An airboat tour allows you to get a close-up view of the amazing bio-diversity of the area.

Here’s what to expect on a swamp tour in Fort Lauderdale.

You can expect to see things you’ve never seen before. There is a plethora of flora and fauna here not found anywhere else. Your tour guide will let you know when you come upon unique plants in the Everglades, such as the saw palmetto, which is found across most of this region. You may also see southern live oak trees and mule ear orchids. It’s possible you may see endangered land animals, such as the Florida panther or a black bear.

Expect to set aside at least an hour for your adventure. You can take a tour as short as one hour. However, you’re likely going to want to spend much more time on the ‘River of Grass.’ You can book longer tours during the day or at sunset, so set aside plenty of time to ensure you have time to thoroughly enjoy your outing.

You’ll probably see gators. While we can’t promise you will see alligators, you’re likely to spot a few. Keep your eyes peeled for gators. When you see what looks like a log floating in the water, take a second look. It might just be an alligator! Your tour boat captain will point out gators and other interesting sites to see along the way, as well as share interesting facts with you.

Expect to stay dry. You won’t be getting in the water, and it will likely be hot. So dress accordingly, and be sure to drink lots of water to help you stay cool. You can bring cooling towels to help beat the heat.

Expect an adventure unlike any other with an airboat tour of the Everglades from Cypress Outdoor Adventures.
