Start with an introduction to your expert, a naturalist guide who has handled just about any situation in the wild tropical wetland that sits between Miami and Fort Lauderdale. Your guide is ready to take you on an adventure that you will be tempted to share with friends throughout, but a warning - keep your eyes pealed and your hands to yourself. And if you blink at the wrong time, you might miss seeing that gator tail swish by!

Are you scared? Don't be, as this excursion is a thrill but we promise it won't be your last. In simple terms, it means you will ultimately be returned to the point of your departure, but you will have seen things that most others never do!

Begin your adventure on an amazing wetlands trail trek in the midst of the bird rookery, home to more bird species and wildlife than any other in Florida. You will find yourself immersed by nature of the trail itself, with views of a wide variety of birds and alligators up close as this is an important bird rookery. There are wading birds everywhere. An awesome photography opportunity. It is on the Great Florida Birding Trail.

This is an easy walk, made complicated only by all there is to see.

From here get on board your airboat, where you will ride into the heart of the REAL Everglades. This is really where the wildlife abounds. Your one-hour air boat adventure takes you into the heart of the REAL Everglades, veering intentionally from those that play is safe. There are no alligators in pens or cages on this tour. Enjoy the seclusion in an authentic, totally non-touristy path from the start. Your guide will help you understand the need to preserve this ecosystem, which is so unique to this area. On this authentic trip, you will see wild alligators and other wildlife up close!

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.
