Exploring the Wilderness Waterway
The "Wilderness Waterway," 99 miles of marked water trail through Everglades National Park from Flamingo to Everglades City. It winds through large bays and broad rivers, shallow flats and narrow creeks, through the largest concentration of mangroves in the western world.
This video takes the viewer on trips in canoes, houseboats, and outboard skiffs to explore parts of the Wilderness Waterway with side trips to historically significant campsites, rich fishing grounds, and rivers that bring life sustaining fresh water down from the mainland Everglades.
Several additional trips are featured in this video to nearby parks. BISCAYNE NATIONAL PARK, BIG CYPRESS NATIONAL PRESERVE and the SHARK VALLEY OBSERVATION TOWER are visited by our camera crews.
This video may serve as a memento of your own trip, or a planning guide for a future adventure in this incredible maze of wild waterways, primitive forests, and underwater national treasures. So, sit back and enjoy!
