“Fantastic Boat Trips”

Gulf Coast Visitor Center
Reviewed 20 February 2012

We have taken two separate boat trips for the last two visits. The Ten Thousand Island large boat trip heads out into the Bay; three playful dolphins danced alongside. The smaller six boat trip was super. Our friendly guide pointed out wading birds along the mangroves. The highlight was the mangrove tunnel, as our small boat moved slowly through the narrow channel through the thick mangroves, rousting white graceful egrets and ibis in front of us. Wow. Beautiful.

A great place to start your everglades exploration. The staff are all knowledgeable about the area and although they will not recomend a particular company they will tell you in what area you will see more wildlife. They know their parks inside & out. We took a boat ride from here and were pleased.

We took a 1 1/2 hour boat trip with a park ranger. Dolphins played alongside the boat, lots of birds showed up, and I enjoyed a real sense of these many mangrove islands. The small museum in the visitor center is worth a look.
