NIGHT IS RIGHT

FOR THE MOONLIT FAKAHATCHEE TRAM TOURS

Thanks to the Moon Lit Fakahatchee Tram Tours, you can now view the magnificent Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park under the illumination of a full moon. The “Ghost Rider” tram, named in honor of the famous Ghost Orchid found in the park, lets you tour the park without concentrating on the road. The Fakahatchee Preserve the largest state park in Florida is home to more orchid species than any other place on the North American continent and is also a haven for diverse wildlife and migratory birds.

All tours start as the sun is setting, prime time for photography and spotting some of the mammal residents of the Strand as well as birds settling in for the evening.

The 20-passenger tram is high and dry and will provide an excellent platform for viewing park features illuminated by moonlight. City-dwellers will be amazed at how their vision changes as their eyes adapt to the light the moon provides.

Experienced naturalists lead each tram tour and will demonstrate communication with denizens of the night, including fireflies, bats and owls. The tram is wheelchair accessible and some seats face backwards. Participants will be required to sign a standard release of liability form.

The tram leaves from the ranger station at 137 Coastline Drive, Copeland, off Janes Scenic Drive, Janes Scenic drive is ONLY accessible via SR 29 ( between I-75 and US 41) DO NOT rely on incorrect GPS information providing other routes to access Jane Scenic dirve in Copeland.

ARRIVE EARLY, at least 30 minutes before departure, this tour departs in time for the sunset and moonrise.

NOTE: PLEASE CHECK WEATHER REPORTS AND DRESS APPROPRIATELY FOR THIS ADVENTURE. EVENINGS CAN BE COOL WHEN THIS TOUR IS OFFERED.
