Master Naturalist Nature Guide
We are now offering a guide to show you the best spots to photograph in Southwest Florida. If you want those breathtaking landscapes that you see from the famous Everglades photographers, our guide can take you there! She can point out and name beautiful plants and birds. Her tours include local history, lore, plant and wild life identification. Trips can be tailored to birds, alligators, scenic photography or a combination of all.

This tour is a guide, not a photography instruction tour.

Our guide is a Florida Master Naturalist in Coastal Wetlands and a trained wildland fire fighter in Big Cypress National Preserve. She is a volunteer with Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research reserve where she assists researchers with the fisheries and forestry divisions. Her passion for the Everglades fuels her desire to learn about the plants, wild life and ecology.

She has spent an extensive amount of time exploring the tucked in corners in search of the best photographic locations.
Guided tours begin at $159.00 for three hours, up to two people. Extra people at $69 each.
