Code: A&G Sample Itinerary
It has been said that only by getting wet can one get into the heart of the Everglades. At the western edge of this vast ecosystem lies a surreal, dense, green swamp that Native Americans called Fakahatchee. Step off the “beaten path” and into this watery wilderness for a truly unique experience shared by few. Renowned for its variety of rare and endangered orchid species, this 75,000 acre preserve is the world’s largest bald cypress/royal palm forest, and is prime habitat for Florida’s mega-fauna. Wade into the “Amazon of North America” with our experienced naturalist guide on an educational adventure into the wild Everglades.

Rick Cruz was born in Havana, Cuba but came to the United States at the age of one with his family to live and grow up in South Florida. Rick’s love for Florida’s wilderness developed while traveling the Tamiami Trail between Miami and Sarasota as far back as he can remember. He now hikes and explores through those same areas with camera gear in hand.
