... water and alligators. We saw so many as we drove along this route. We wanted to stop but there wasn't a place to pull over until the Oasis Visitor Center in the Big Cypress National Preserve. What a great place! We walked out on the boardwalk and had a direct view down into a pond area loaded with alligators. It was fascinating watching them up so close.
... point. Once aboard the airboat, we took off and it was the most amazing experience ever, zooming along over the water & even over the sawgrass! Oz, our driver, took us to a bushy area and started to whistle...I'm thinking, "is he calling the alligators?" :) But as it turns out, Oz is calling some birds that he has known since they were babies. Eventually you see them half flying, half walking on ...

This was a great place to stay after an Everglades paddling trip that departed from the Everglades Area Tours location within easy walking distance. We stayed here one night after the paddle trip into the Mangrove Tunnel and then left for a morning Dolphin and Wildlife tour that left from Goodland which is about 45 minute drive away.
Clean rooms. Bill was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the area and best places to eat. It would have been nice to have a Queen Bed option, but the full beds worked out fine.
