For the 20 years that my wife Marisa and I have been operating Fossil Expeditions and before that, Everglades Eco-Tours, a lot of you have talked about special nature expeditions that have moved you while in SW Florida. Some of you are into birding and hope to spot a Florida scrub jay, burrowing owl, crested cara cara, swallowtail kite, roseate spoonbill, limpkin, painted bunting or Everglades snail kite. Others want to see manatees or alligators and snakes. Some of you enjoy Florida landscapes that contain such diverse trees as mangrove, pine, oak, sabal palm and bald cypress. And others prefer butterflies and bugs - including giant fishing spiders. Well, we'll be glad to create a trip for you in which we hike or kayak so you can add to your Florida nature bucket list. I'm not an expert on every critter or plant we'll see, but I am confident I know enough to ensure you'll have a great time. And those of you whose love for adventure extends beyond just one type of animal or plant may enjoy this trip even more - because there are always unexpected surprises when you're open for anything.
Not sure what type of trip would interest you? Click any photo below, then scroll down and peruse my posted images. If something special catches your attention, drop me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Marisa at 239-368-3252. We'll let you know what we can and can't do, depending on where you're staying and where the site is located. Ideally, it should be within about 100 miles from my home base in the Fort Myers area. Let us know if you have any health restrictions and we'll try to work within your comfort level.
