Ready to see some Flamingos?
At Flamingo Adventures in Everglades National Park, more than 360 different species of birds have been sighted, not just flamingo! The exotic wildlife and bird watching experience allows you to encounter all sorts of wading and land birds that you wouldn’t see elsewhere.
You have the opportunity to see diverse plants and wildlife in their natural habitat while camping under the stars in Southern Florida. Flamingo Adventures provides a unique camping experience along with boat tours and rentals that give a one of a kind view of the largest subtropical wilderness in the nation.
“I’ve been with Guest Services for almost two years and what I most enjoy about working and managing Flamingo Adventures is that I get to live in the Everglades National Park! It’s one of the most robust ecosystems in the world,” says Ken Kroll, Flamingo Adventures general manager.
There is no better way to experience the Everglades then spending a night under the stars at one of its many campsites. The most accessible camping locations are the two drive-in locations Long Pine Key Campground and the Flamingo Campground. They also have eco-tents so you can “glamp” (camp glamorously) while being environmentally conscious!
“We are going to open our Eco-Tents up soon this early October and should be breaking ground before the end of the year in opening our cottages and restaurant.”
Don’t feel like camping? Go on a Back Country Boat Tour or Florida Bay Boat Tour! There’s a 90-minute 10,000 Island tour on weekday or weekend afternoons that go up the Buttonwood Canal through Coot Bay and Tarpon Creek into the Whitewater Bay while you learn about the different plant and animal life that covers the Everglades National Park.
Feel like exploring on your own? Rentals include single kayaks, double kayaks, and canoes. Spend the day with family and friends out on the waters of the Everglades and experience an up-close and personal encounter with the marine life.
Enjoy your trip! Don’t forget, sunscreen, bug spray, sunglasses, and a hat!
