Description

NATURALIST led Fakahatchee Tram Tour with Swamp Walk adventures "This offering combines elements of our longer tram tours and swamp walks to give participants a great introduction to the Fakahatchee," says volunteer naturalist Patrick Higgins.

Each Tram Tour and Swamp Walk begins with a ride on the group's Ghost Rider tram to the site of the swamp walk. After about 90 minutes of walking through the swamp, participants board the tram for the return trip.

Naturalists leading the group will share their insights about the Fakahatchee's flora and fauna on both wet and dry portions of the adventure. Fakahatchee Strand is home to the famous ghost orchid and many other rare plants and animals.

The Tram Tour with Swamp Walk is $60 per person. The tours begin promptly at 9:30 am and conclude by 1 pm.

Participants will be required to sign a standard release of liability form. Any cancellations must be made 48 hours in advance to receive refund.

Participants should be sure to wear sturdy lace-up shoes( no sandals) and long pants and can change to dry clothes at the visitors restrooms for their drive home. This is an outdoor event, so dress appropriately for the weather.

The Tram Tour and Swamp Walk begins at the ranger station off Jane's Scenic Drive. Janes Scenice Drive is accessible ONLY via SR 29 (between HI 75 and US 41) DO NOT rely on incorrect GPS direction providing a different route to Jane Scenic drive in Copeland FL.
