Make your way to Shark Valley in Everglades National Park, where you’ll board an open-sided tram for a guided trip through the Everglades’ sawgrass prairies.

Throughout the tour, the naturalist guides will help spot wildlife and explain the things you see—this is a great chance to ask questions about the Everglades. Halfway through the tram tour, climb to the top of a 45-foot (14-meter) observation tower for views that extend 20 miles (31 kilometers) across the Everglades, which stretch to the horizon in every direction. 

The Shark Valley tram tour concludes at the original departure point, close to walking trails, visitor services, and Everglades National Park gift shops.

Avoid in August

We only saw 4 parts of alligators. This is definitely not the season to take the tram to spot alligators. In addition the guide kept on talking on and on for 2 (!) hours during the whole ride. The voice over should have some purpose....More
