You can rent bikes here or take a tram ride. There was not much action with the wildlife. Perhaps it was the intense heat keeping all the animals hidden.

A rare opportunity to get close to the wildlife in the Everglades. Birds, alligators,snakes, fish, and Florida Fauna . You can see it while riding bikes. An incredible experience.

Five of us rent the bikes and it took us 3 hours to finish this 15 mile loop. The weather was hot and humid. We did not see any gators, but it was fun to have a family workout.

We choosed to take the bike and needed 2 hours for the trip. It was very hot in the sun but it was definitely worth it. You see a lot of alligators and birds. Better take water with you!

This two hour narrated tram tour was time well spent. Our driver and narrator, Kelly and Amanda, were both excellent and provided us with a wealth of information. They can easily spot birds, reptiles, and plants that are interesting. It's well worth the cost!
