What to Expect on a Swamp Tour in Fort Lauderdale

Swamp Tour Fort Lauderdale FL

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.
