Description

Beginning with a boat tour of the 10,000 islands contained within the Everglades, you can expect to see a wide range of wildlife, from manatees and turtles, to deer and the Florida panther, to herons, osprey and pelicans. And don't forget to keep an eye out for crocodiles (not that you'll be able to miss them).

A visit to an historic trading post will provide a glimpse into the past of both Seminole and pioneer life of long ago.

It's time for a walk through a cypress swamp forest. It's the best way to appreciate the biodiversity, the wildlife and the smells. Take a deep breath and let the piney, spicy scent of the forest fill your lungs. Ah, refreshing!

After seeing the area by boat, it's time to see it by land. Your guide will drive through Big Cypress National Preserve and the Everglades to show you another view of this special place.

A delicious lunch will be provided to refresh you for the second half of the tour.

Also included is a stop at the Museum of the Everglades. This pretty pink and white building was once part of a company town owned by the Collier Company who built the Tamiami Trail, connecting Tampa to Miami. Learn all about the history, background and controversy surrounding this famous highway.

You've seen the Everglades by boat and by vehicle. There's only one way left to see the interior of this magnificent and important ecosystem...airboat! This thrilling ride will bring you close to wild alligators for the closest look at wildlife yet!

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
