TOUR HIGHLIGHTS
journey to a remote island camp Climb aboard an airboat and embark on a 40-minute journey into the Florida Everglades. Enjoy a brief voyage to the island where upon arrival you are greeted by tribal architecture, wildlife, and unique plantlife. Everglades islands, also known as hammocks, played a crucial role in the survival and settlement of local tribes in the Everglades.
The islands generally reflect the low-impact nature of tribal society. Handbuilt wooded structures known as "chickees" line the island, built in a style unchanged for centuries. Trails as well as a boardwalk and scenic clearings offer an adventurous guided narration by your captain.
ON THE ISLAND
explore the island and see its ecology On the island you'll find authentic 1890s-style structures reflecting traditional architecture as an island village. An island trail as well as a boardwalk allow you to traverse the island and see the unique ecology within. The island ecosystem is partly self contained, offering a diverse variety of species, many of which have lived on the island generationally.
