This tour combines elements of our tram tours and swamp walks to give participants a wonderful introduction to the Fakahatchee.
Each Tram Tour includes a Swamp Walk and begins with an interpretive ride on the Friend's Ghost Rider tram to the site of the swamp walk. After about 90 minutes of wading through the swamp, participants board the tram for the return trip.
Naturalists leading the group will share their insights about the Fakahatchee's flora and fauna on both wet and dry portions of the adventure. The Fakahatchee Preserve is the largest State park in Florida, home to a rich concentration of orchids including the famous ghost orchid and serves as a haven for endangered wildlife.
