A morning of discovery and exploration in one of the world’s most threatened and beautiful wild places - The Florida Everglades and Big Cypress Preserve.

Walking sticks and water shoes are provided.

The Miccosukee Indian Heritage Airboat Tour

The Miccosukee Indian Heritage Airboat Tour with a Visit to the Clyde Butcher Gallery and Dinner Departure at 1pm - Return to Hotel by 7:15pm

Accessible only by airboat, we’ll travel several miles into the Everglades to experience two historic Miccosukee island camps. We’ll walk the islands that they once called home to hear how Miccosukee families for generations learned to live in harmony with what many considered an unlivable landscape.

We will of course seek out the family of wild gators that live near the big camp. If they care to show themselves, our guide will demonstrate his ability to “speak gator.” To the frequent amazement of visitors, the gators often respond.

A Visit to the Clyde Butcher Gallery
We’ll then enjoy a tour through the black and white gallery of world-renowned photographer Clyde Butcher. Known for his stunning images of natural beauty, his special fondness for South Florida is apparent and must be seen to be appreciated.

Dinner at the Pit Bar BQ
Our last stop will be a unique location in the Everglades serving good old-fashioned BBQ with a little Latin Flavor and of course their Famous Smoked GatorRibs
