If you’re planning a group trip to Southwest Florida and wondering, “are there any wildlife tours near me that I could bring our whole group to?” — the answer is a resounding yes! Here are a few tips to ensure you have a successful group wildlife tour during your Southwest Florida stay!

Book A Tour That’s Friendly for All Ages

Not all wildlife tours are going to be appropriate for the little ones, senior citizens, or people with mobility concerns. However, that doesn’t mean it’s impossible to find a tour that is a great time for everyone in the group! If you are searching for family friendly wildlife tours near you in Southwest Florida for example, you’ll find the Swamp Buggy Eco Tours at Babcock Ranch to be a perfect fit. These 90-minute tours allow everyone in your group to enjoy the flora, fauna, and Floridian vistas from an inclusive and exciting swamp buggy!

Buy Tickets in Advance

The wildlife tours near you may sell out quite far in advance. At Babcock Ranch Eco Tours, we recommend our visitors book their tours at least a few weeks in advance to ensure the whole group can enjoy the tour together. Our Swamp Buggy Eco-Tours are generally the quickest to sell out so make sure you buy your tickets before you arrive!

Dress For the Conditions

If you decide to go on a free walking tour through the Palmetto Prairie at Babcock Ranch, you’ll want to make sure everyone in your group is dressed for the conditions. The trail is well sign posted, but it can get muddy and swampy. Boots are definitely recommended. And don’t forget the binoculars!

Get Ready to Have Fun!

If you’ve got the right gear and your tickets in hand— there’s nothing keeping you from having a successful group wildlife tour! During a Babcock Ranch Eco Tour, you’re bound to see some beautiful animals, flowers, plants, and views that the whole group will love. Plus, if you take one of the Swamp Buggy Tours, you’ll even have a knowledgeable guide in tow to explain the history of the area and point out flora and fauna you may have otherwise missed!

You can book your Swamp Buggy Eco Tour or another specialty tour in just a few clicks on the Babcock Ranch Eco Tours website. We look forward to welcoming your whole group on your wildlife adventure!
