Air Boat and Tram Tours
Permission is granted to come aboard one of the world's two largest covered air boats, the "Myakka Maiden," or the "Gator Gal" for a scenic cruise on the Upper Myakka Lake.

Discover what makes the Myakka unique among America's freshwater lakes. Hear intriguing stories about the alligator, anhinga, and sandhill crane as you become acquainted with the variety of creatures that make their home here.

These air-powered vessels venture into the shallow, grassy areas where traditional crafts of such size wouldn't dare to go. The leisurely ride is so safe and smooth you'll have no problem taking photographs to bring home.

You don't have to "rough it" to take the special "Tram Safari" into the back country of Myakka River State Park. Discover what life in old Florida was like as you see it through the eyes of the early settlers.

Learn to detect clues of the presence of resident wildlife as you pass through shady hammocks, majestic pine flat woods, fertile marshes and sunny prairies.

If you want to gain an understanding of the intricate workings of a natural ecosystem in progress, you have to experience it for yourself.
