  • Why Fish

    the Everglades?

    There is no shortage of reasons why renting a fishing boat in the Everglades is a great way to spend the day. In addition to the region’s exceptional stocks of largemouth bass, there’s also the impressive scenery, which is truly unlike anywhere else in the country.

    As you fish, you’ll enjoy privileged access to rare wading birds, snakes, and the park’s most famous inhabitant, the gator. Bringing the family is a great way to emphasize the importance of respecting the natural world and preserving wetlands, both in Florida and throughout the country.



An Angler's


The Florida Everglades is indeed an angler’s paradise and the perfect place to catch the “Big One” of your dreams. A wonderful tropical environment, venturing out into the Everglades on your own is an experience unlike any other. Everglades fishing boats (along with tackle and bait) are available at our park for trying your luck at catching that record-breaking freshwater fish of your dreams.

Whether you’re an avid fisherman or just a naturist, you can always plan a guided tour. A day spent fishing the Everglades is amazing and one of the best ways to experience Florida.
