The beaches on Florida’s Gulf Coast are amazing but they aren’t the only captivating attraction of the area! Reconnect with nature and explore the true native Florida with Babcock Ranch Eco-Tours. Our tours will take you through the natural wildlife of the historic Babcock Ranch Preserve.

Still debating whether you should do a nature tour? Here are some reasons why you should consider it!

A Two for One Vacation

When you opt for nature tours in Southwest Florida, you’ll feel worlds away from the Gulf Coast beaches, almost like you’re on an entirely different vacation! Babcock Ranch is only about 30 minutes from Fort Myers, but you’ll be immersed in a different environment.

The eco-tours allow you to travel through four different ecosystems of Florida including Telegraph Cypress Swamp and see the wildlife that is common to each ecosystem.

Once In a Lifetime Photos

It’s not every day where you have the opportunity to see alligators, wild hogs, and maybe even a Florida panther! With more than 60,000 acres, there is no telling just how many animals you’ll see on your nature tour.

There are plenty of opportunities for awesome shots, so get your camera ready!

An Enjoyable Way to Stay Active

It can be hard to pull ourselves up off the beach, enjoying the warm sun and sounds of the ocean waves, but we’ve got just the thing to motivate you to get moving. Enjoy the Florida sunshine with the sweet songs of native birds as your new soundtrack.

Babcock Ranch offers free walking tours of the area, and you are sure to see some gorgeous wildlife along your journey. The 45-minute walk meanders through wet Flatwoods and the palmetto prairie, and is a prime place to see some of the rarer birds in Florida!

Learn The History of Florida

On the Babcock Ranch Swamp Buggy Eco-Tours, our guests are invited into the world of “Old Florida” by exploring the history of Florida as is narrated by our tour guides. They will walk you through the history of the Ranch starting in the late 1800s and give you a rich knowledge of the area to go home and share with your friends.
