October Activities in the Everglades

airboatWe’re in the middle of fall, and now is a great time to explore the Everglades! As the weather starts to cool down and the “in” season for Florida grows near, there are more activities to do in the park. Also, it is a lot more enjoyable to explore the Everglades, when it’s not brutally hot out!

As a private Everglades airboat company, we know a lot about the Everglades and we love to hear about all the fun activities people do within this beautiful ecosystem (besides jump on an airboat ride, that is!) For this article, we wanted to share with you some fun activities for you to do in the Everglades on a trip during October.
