Babcock Ranch’s Swamp Buggy Eco-Tour isn’t your average tour, it’s a true adventure! Get ready to experience wildlife and history like never before! Here is why we think you will love it so much:

The Wildlife

Do you know the 6 main animal groups? Well, we think the best way to learn about them is to see them! On your swamp buggy eco-tour, you will most likely see amphibians, birds, fish, invertebrates, mammals, and reptiles…. all in one 90-minute ride!

Look up to catch a glimpse of a red-cockaded woodpecker or maybe even a Bachman’s sparrow (if you listen closely, you’ll probably also hear them sing, it sounds like a loud whistle followed by an extended trill).

Then, focus your sights on the trees and swamps so you can spot a deer, a wild hog, or maybe even a panther. Also keep on the lookout for alligators, frogs, and bugs all sharing the swampy marshland.

The History

We think you’ll be just as interested in Babcock Ranch’s history as you will with the wildlife. Sit back and let your tour guide transport you back to the 1800s and early 1900s, when the Babcock Ranch was known as the Crescent B Ranch.

Imagine yourself surrounded by 156,000 acres of pure opportunity for ranching, lumber, and more. You may notice that it’s not hard to imagine since a lot of the land looks largely the same today as it did back then. All thanks to expansive conservation efforts!

The All-Day Fun

One of the great things about taking a Babcock Ranch swamp buggy eco-tour is that the fun doesn’t have to end when the tour does! For no added cost, you can also experience a self-guided walking tour and enjoy pursuing the gift shop. If you get hungry, stop by the Gator Shack and enjoy delicious southern delicacies like baby back ribs, cornbread, and key lime pie.
