There is truly no other place like it on Earth. The diverse environment of Everglades National Park ranges from coastal beaches to brackish mangrove swamp to freshwater sawgrass prairie. The birdlife is unparalleled, with literally hundreds of species. Our experienced guide, Joel Beckwith, can identify them all as he leads paddlers through mangrove mazes to fascinating interior routes, where camping is on chickees and ground sites, and out into the Gulf of Mexico to camp on gorgeous palm tree beaches.
