There are a variety of eco-tour options in Florida but not all tours are created equal! When you are looking for a top-notch eco tour, you want to look for options that have knowledgeable tour guides, stunning wildlife, incredible history, and a diverse selection of tours. Here is what you need to know about what makes Babcock Ranch Eco Tours truly stand out in all these categories:

The Land Itself Is Exception

On the Babcock Ranch Eco Tour, you won’t be touring just a small little wildlife preserve. Babcock Ranch Eco Tour is operated on 73,000 acres of some of Southwest Florida’s most environmentally valuable land! In fact, when the land was sold to the State of Florida and Lee County in 2006, it was the largest single land preservation in Florida’s history!

The Tour Guides are Knowledgeable

Not every eco tour in Florida will come with a tour guide, but many of the tours at Babcock Ranch do! Knowledgeable tour guides will walk you through the ranch’s history, point out a variety of Florida’s natural animals, and teach you about the varying ecosystems along the way. The guides’ passion and knowledge are sure to enhance your eco-tour experience!

The Wildlife is Stunning

Did you know Southwest Florida is home to deer, panthers, wild hogs, turkeys, alligators, and more? You may be able to spot many of these animals on your Babcock Ranch Eco-Tour! Because tours at Babcock Ranch, like the 90-minute Swamp Buggy Eco-Tour, meander through a variety of ecosystems and habitats, the wildlife spotting opportunities are endless! This gives Babcock Ranch a leg up against many other Florida eco tours that only focus on one ecosystem or a small area with limited biodiversity.

The Tour Options Are Endless

Babcock Ranch offers a variety of tours for different interests, ages, budgets, and more. For example, if you are on a tight budget— consider a free Babcock Ranch walking tour! If you love trying new things or have members of your party with limited mobility, consider a Swamp Buggy Eco Tour. For photography lovers, check out the specialty photo tour and for the thrill seeker, how about a “Sounds of the Night Tour” after the sun goes down? Regardless of the type of eco-tour you’re looking for, Babcock Ranch Eco Tours has a fabulous option to fit your needs!
