Ecotourism in Florida

When many people think of traveling to Florida, they think of crowded theme parks and congested beaches, but Florida has so much more to offer. Eco-friendly activities and maintaining the natural beauty of Florida is an extremely important part of the Floridian lifestyle. Natural Florida is abundant, and you generally don’t have to travel far from the major cities to find it. We have many springs, hiking trails, uninhabited islands, and of course, the everglades all yours for the exploring. Kayaking, canoeing, bird watching, and hiking are popular all across the state.

Black Hammock Airboat Rides offers different airboat rides for guests to view the wildlife and scenery of Florida. There are different packages available to guests. One of the most unique packages is called the "Ride and Sip"; guests ride on the airboat and receive a free gator cup and drink from the Lazy Gator Bar.
