Eco-tourism around Central Florida is becoming increasingly popular. Orlando is world famous for it’s man-made attractions, but there are lots of places within easy reach where you can experience the ‘real’ Florida.
This 2 day tour takes you first by bus, south to The Florida Keys where your hotel accommodations and evening meal are included. Your one on one swim with the dolphins will either take place the first afternoon or the following morning. It’s a personal encounter with these quite amazing creatures that you’ll talk about for years. Then it’s off to explore Miami, home of the rich and famous!

Something a lot of visitors to Orlando are not aware of is the amount of good, fully guided package tours on offer. Many of these tours involve leaving Central Florida and heading South away from the theme parks. Luxury motor coach transportation (or mini bus for smaller groups) is generally included in the price, as are appropriate meals en route. Apart from the convenience of not having to drive yourself, package tours often include elements that a visitor probably would not have booked on their own. So, why not be a little adventurous? It’s certainly something different from spending the whole day at one park or location, and typically the packages offer very good value for money.
Take a bus ride down to delightful Clearwater Beach, and board the biggest speedboat in the USA. This monster machine can ride the waves safely and smoothly with 30 people onboard! Watch out for the wild dolphins that leap in and out of the wake as you make your way up the coast.
Leave Orlando for the day and head to the Florida Everglades. You can skim across miles and miles of pristine swampland in an airboat and see the wilder side of the ‘Sunshine State’. If you’ve ever wondered what it was like to have an airplane propeller strapped to a park bench this is your chance to find out! Quite honestly it’s the highlight of many vacations!
Budding astronauts and their parents will thoroughly enjoy a visit to the Kennedy Space Center – only about an hour from Orlando and well worth the drive. It comprises 70 plus acres of space hardware, artifacts from four decades of space exploration, lots of excellent exhibits and some superb film and video presentations.
