Day 1: Arrived at awesome VRBO condo at Ocean Pointe in Tavernier, Florida Keys. Wonderful gated community with pool, tennis, bar, restaurant , private beach with pier and water sports.
Day 2: Drove 45 minutes to the Everglades to meet our amazing guide, Garl, of Garl’s Everglades Adventures. He took us to some of the most incredible spots in the Everglades to see alligators, snakes, manatees, and birds out in their wild homes. It was truly unlike any experience I’ve ever done. We trekked 2 hours through the swamps on foot. Then we kayaked through the Everglades for 2 more hours.
Day 3: We drove into Tavernier town for an afternoon snorkeling trip. We saw nurse sharks, lobsters, tons of fish, and an eel!
Day 4: Rest and visited Sombrero Beach to relax.
Day 5: Return home
Every restaurant we went to in Tavernier was excellent with fresh seafood, laid-back atmospheres, outdoor music, and great service.
Our family couldn’t have loved this trip more!
