Everglades Boat Tour

5개월 전

Before I went to Florida, there was one place certain I wanted to explore and that was the Everglades wetland. For this, we had booked an airboat tour through Gator Park. This meant we got 40 minutes to ride in the Everglades and after that a guided show of the alligators.

So first the ride. The airboat was very loud so guide gave us the air plugs for that when we are going with high speed. You might think that why are they using airboats, why not use boats instead. Well, using a boat is tricky because it's not all water, there are many patches of weeds and plants, the boat engine would get stuck in this.

On the way, we saw many different wild animals that live in the Everglades, including numerous alligators.

Yes someone is on my photo but we moved pretty fast and I was having hard time to capture this turtle that appeared suddenly.

Well, if you ever visit the place then I strongly advise you to take one of the many tours available in the area.
Have a cool Friday!!

Thanks for sharing your trip with us! I like the trees that are half under water - they make things a little mystical. And the smaller crocs and gators are so cute! How did it feel like holding one?

They felt cold :D I guess they regulate their body temperature much differently.
