Everglades Birding at its Best!

Everglades Birding with Capt. Dave Hunt: Snowy egret in flight

Summer Break!
The vast majority of migratory birds have made their way north. Since I can't give you a "trip of a lifetime" right now - my birding trips are suspended until Nov 2015. Of course, in the meantime, feel free to contact me about details or to arrange a trip in fall 2015-Spring 2016 Season. I am looking forward to another great year!

TAKE A RIDE ON THE WILD SIDE! Enjoy a private backcountry birding tour by boat in Everglades National Park, one of the top 10 birding locations in the World, according to many sources. Dave Hunt, a certified Florida Master Naturalist, will take you on a unique journey where you'll see a wide array of birds living and feeding in their natural habitat. You may also view rarely seen species like the American crocodile, manatee, tiger shark and the elusive sawfish which also call the Park home.

This is the ONLY way to Maximize your Everglades birding opportunities. Over half the Park is covered with water. Take a look at the Park map by clicking here. If you drive to Flamingo and reach the end of the road you'll be dissapointed and wish you were on the water. You can find less expensive tours big boat tours or rent a evergladesbirding.com roseate bandedcanoe and do it yourself but your opportunities will be limited. 90% of the photos on this website were taken from the boat, far from the roads and mainland. Dave is the only guide in the park offering this type of tour.

With over 350 species of birds in Everglades National Park your experience will be the trip of a lifetime and you will want to do it again! Click here to see a list of birds observed one day last year.
