Alligators and Orchids Kayak Eco Tour (Florida)
by Everglades Area Tours
Beautiful butterflies, abundant bromeliads, fabulous ferns and gorgeous wildflowers- including at least seven different species of wild orchids blooming at various times of the year. Of course, what Everglades experience would be complete without seeing the Everglades’ most famous resident, the American Alligator? The unobtrusive stealth of your kayak often affords you the opportunity to observe these iconic, magnificent creatures from a safe distance, yet close enough to take good pictures. The early morning reflections on the water can be spectacular, with the slick-calm surface appearing as a mirror to Nature’s surrounding beauty.
