Full description
The entire Everglades area, including Everglades National Park, is a wonderful place for birding. With over 300 species of birds throughout the year, it is the only park that was established for its biological and ecological considerations rather than its geological features. However, most of the 1.5 million acres in the park are flooded, and essentially out of reach for the average birder and photographer. This tour provides you with the opportunity to take your equipment to these areas; this experience is only for 1 or 2 participants, and there is plenty of room to take your tripods. Maximize your photo shooting opportunities on this 2.5-hour private experience. On other tours, your guide must balance the needs and desires of all aboard, but with this private tour, you are the focus. If you need to reposition for lighting, wait until a particular subject is where you want them to be, or want to see a particular species or landscape, your naturalist guide can do it. As the seasons change, migrations and bird populations vary. While you never know what you will encounter, in general you can expect a plethora of shore birds, wading birds, and raptors. Keep an eye out for dolphins, manatees, sea turtles, alligators, and a vast variety of other wildlife as well.

Don, my guide was a great tour leader. Took me to truly spectacularly areas filled with wonderful wildlife. His natural history knowledge made the trip a success in that he knew where to find the birds and how to approach them without scaring them away allowing me to get some amazing wildlife photos. It was the best part of my time in the Everglades area
