1. Myakka Safari/ 2.Canopy Walkway Tour # 35851
1. Animals, like tabloid celebrities, often display outlandish behavior and sport eye-catching plumage. Track down camera-shy fauna on this tour on a wildlife boat tour at Myakka River State Park. See wild alligators, birds, grassy areas, and breath taking Scenic Views!
2. The canopy walkway is on a spur trail that goes off of the Boylston Nature Trail. The entire loop trail takes about 30 to 40 minutes to walk at a very leisurely pace. If you prefer not to walk the entire trail and just walk to the spur trail and then to the walkway, it takes about 5 minutes to reach the walkway.
The walkway is suspended 25 feet above the ground and extends 100 feet through the hammock canopy. A tower soars 74 feet in the air to present a spectacular view of treetops, wetlands and the prairie/hammock interface. You can look down on eagles, hawks, vultures and the tops of live oaks and palm trees.
The tour starts at pick up time that will be at 8. 30 am. Pick up time is at your location. The tour will end at drop off time at your location at 12. 30 pm. The canopy walkway is about 40 minutes and is for free.
The Airboat Tour is about 1 hour and 30 minutes. If biking is decided you will have to eliminate one of the tours. Biking will have to be only for one hour. Or, you can only do the biking trail for 2 hours. . . You choose! Kayak rentals will also work the same as the biking times. We will leave the grounds at 11. 30 am to reach your location at 12. 30 pm.
