I'm on info overload. Can't seem to find specific answers to my specific questions even after spending 3 hours today on this wonderful forum. Feb visit coming up quickly.
We're staying at sanibel island for two days then on to Key West for two days. Thought we'd "stop by" the everglades on our way down, but now thinking of splitting it up.
Tuesday, drive from sanibel via 41 and go to Everglades city for kayak guided tour. (i only find ONE kayak guide). Maybe small airboat operator instead. stop at Big Cypress Bend Boardwalk. go back for sunset at naples then back to sanibel. (sorry sanibel)
Wednesday on our drive down to Key west, go to FLorida city for a tram ride. I don't think i want to go to Shark Valley for the tram ride, but that's the only place i hear about a tram. Seeing an alligator is not that important--i'm sure i'll see a few, but would like to experience the swamp and birds and other wildlife (mammals are nice).
too ambitious? We don't mind driving quite a bit , but would like to get out and see things as well.
Or should i do ALL the everglades in one day on my way down to KW?
thanks for all your help to date.
