If you want to experience the Florida Everglades without the deafening roar of an airboat propeller in your ear, take a Pole Boat tour with Everglades Adventure Tours. What's a Pole Boat tour? Well, instead of being propelled through the water by motor, or with oars, your guide will use a very long pole to quietly glide you through the vast landscape, much like the early settlers and Native Americans did. It's fantastic. So peaceful.
Florida native guide Jack Shealy will pole you through the Everglades and provide fantastic narration complete with amazing facts and cultural information about life in the Glades. You can also choose to take a canoe tour, a swamp hike or a backcountry camping excursion. It's all good!
Everglades Adventure Tours provides Pole Boat tours of the Everglades and Big Cypress National Preserve wetlands. You'll find them on Florida's Southwest Coast, in Ochopee (right off US 41, Tamiami Trail). Give them a call today at 1-800-504-6554.
