The Gateway to the Ten Thousand Islands
Located near Naples, Everglades City is just a stone’s throw away from the Ten Thousand Islands, a diverse recreation area that’s home to mangrove tunnels, a wildlife refuge, backcountry campsites, and countless things for nature enthusiasts to do. Known as the Stone Crab Capital of the World, Everglades City boasts some of the best seafood joints in Florida, as well as a seafood festival in early February. Museums, parks and historic sites make this charming town well worth a visit, but it’s the water tours and activities that really set Everglades City apart.
A visit to Everglades City wouldn’t be complete without venturing into the mangrove tunnels and swamps that put this place on the map. There are tours and activities to suit every lifestyle. Take a seat on an airboat as your captain speeds into remote waterways, stopping to point out wildlife like manatees and dolphins. Or, take a slower approach on a kayak eco-tour that will let you explore the nooks and crannies of the Everglades City waterways at your own pace while your naturalist guide educates you about the area’s rich ecosystem. Shelling and boating are also popular activities here, especially since they accommodate the whole family.
Got a craving for fresh-caught seafood? Book a fishing trip and visit some of the most remote fisheries in the Ten Thousand Islands to fish for trout, grouper, catfish and more. Fishermen have even been known to spot various shark species in these waters. Everglades City fishing trips are hassle-free since most operators provide the fishing license, bait and tackle and can gear their tours toward both beginner and experienced anglers.
