This package includes one of our world-famous EvergladesAdventures.com guided eco-paddle trips into the heart of the Everglades, a thrilling half-hour airboat ride, a fun half-hour swamp buggy ride, admission to a small local zoo, two nights' lodging at the Ivey House plus box lunches on both days you awake here in the Everglades!
This package combines the quintessential Everglades airboat tour with one of our world-famous EvergladesAdventures.com paddle trips deep into the fresh-water habitats of the Western Everglades. On your day of arrival, you’ll be introduced to a myriad of activities and adventures in our area, as well as to highlights of historic Everglades City. You may choose to spend your time relaxing near our screened, tropical pool area or wandering one of many local boardwalks where you may see a wide variety of birds and wildlife. Here at the Ivey House, you’ll sleep in the peace and quiet of one of our clean, comfortable rooms: we are very proud to be TripAdvisor’s top-rated Inn here in Everglades City, repeatedly praised for being the cleanest, friendliest and best place from which to base your Everglades adventures!
The next morning you’ll continue your adventure by joining our amazing “Kayak Into a New Day” guided tour with one of our trained naturalist guides. You’ll paddle along one of the area’s most beautiful rivers, gliding through mysterious, magical mangrove tunnels and small open ponds as the sun rises high and the birds and other animals awaken to a new day. By lunchtime, you’ll return to the Ivey House to pick up your custom-prepared box lunch and relax a bit before your next adventure, which you may choose to do on this same day, or on the following day after you check out and leave us and our beautiful and unique town. Each of our guided paddle trips spans a four-hour period of time and includes an orientation briefing, transportation from the Ivey House Inn to a local river, around 3 hours of paddle time, a snack, water and return transportation to the Ivey House.
Your second excursion will be an exciting combination adventure that includes a thirty-minute airboat tour and a thirty-minute swamp buggy tour within the Big Cypress National Preserve, part of the U.S. National Park system, as well as admission to a privately run local zoo, where you can delight in seeing lots of local wildlife and even hold one of our most common local residents: an American Alligator!
Finally, this package includes a second-night’s stay here at the beautiful Ivey House, and a second box lunch to carry with you as you make your way to the east, north or south from the Everglades: it’s a long way back to traditional “civilization”, and you may wish you’d stayed with us even longer!
For this package, you may choose a room in either our modern Inn or historic Lodge: and whether you choose to go modern or traditional, or mild to wild, we are certain you will love exploring the Western Everglades with us!
