7 Day Multi Family Expedition
Mysterious and ancient, Everglades National Park comprises 1.5 million acres of Florida’s vast landscape. At the southwestern reaches of the park are the 35,000 acres of labyrinthine waterways and white sand beaches of Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Reserve. Once shelter to Caribbean Pirates and Calusa Natives of the past, these salt marshes, estuaries, and mangrove forests are unique coastal ecosystems that serve as nursery grounds for young marine life and unique areas for exploration.
The combination of climate, geographical location and ocean currents makes the Everglades America’s only sub-tropical wilderness and home to over six hundred species of birds and animals, thousands of plant varieties, and several of the world’s endangered species. As we paddle flat water rivers through lush tropical forests and the habitats of manatees, dolphins, otters, birds, alligators, and crocodiles (the only place in the world where these toothy reptiles coexist), or perhaps explore the prehistoric shell middens of early civilizations, you'll understand why this is one of America's prized World Heritage Sites.
