This is No Ordinary Trip to Florida!
Naturally, when you explore Florida with Nat Hab, you're going to get an incomparable nature immersion. It's a far different experience from the typical resort-based Florida experience. We steer far afield of crowded beaches and manmade attractions, putting the focus wholly on the wild side of Florida. Learn more about what makes this trip so distinctive:
- A Total Focus on Nature
This is Florida as you’ve likely never seen it. Our 8-day subtropical safari delves into vast tracts of watery wilderness and native forest on the southern Florida peninsula, protected in a network of national parks, wildlife refuges and marine reserves. We've crafted this itinerary with the utmost attention to showcasing Florida's diverse habitats, replete with wildlife, on land and sea.
- Timed & Designed to Avoid Crowds
We've chosen our departure dates carefully to avoid busy spring break times, and our itinerary focuses on more out-of-the-way nature experiences off the standard tourist track. We also include several special outdoor picnics and dining experiences to enhance a sense of solitude in nature, away from crowded restaurants.
- A Small Group for Exclusive Access
We travel with just 14 guests (and two Expedition Leaders), offering an intimate look at wild places off-limits to large tour groups. And because we’re able to travel in smaller vehicles as a result (including small boats) we get to explore places bus tours can’t go, like a chartered small-boat cruise in Rookery Bay.
- Outstanding Naturalist Guides
Our Expedition Leaders are Florida nature specialists with expertise in the ecosystems, habitats and wildlife of the subtropical south Florida Peninsula and offshore marine areas. Their knowledge will enhance your exploration immeasurably—and what’s more, we travel with two guides, for the ultimate in a personalized experience with flexibility to divide the group for varied activities according to interests and physical ability.

- A Rare Visit to the Dry Tortugas by Seaplane
No other company we know of includes a day trip to Dry Tortugas National Park via seaplane. Rather than subject to you to a 2-1/4 hour ferry ride each way, we make the journey from Key West in just 40 minutes on a narrated, low-altitude flight offering views of marine life from the air. Spend a half-day exploring Garden Key, including coral reef snorkeling.
- Privately Guided Snorkeling Excursions
Enjoy discovering the undersea world off the Florida coast on several guided snorkeling opportunities, with quality equipment and instruction provided.
- Distinctive Accommodations Near Nature
We avoid nondescript hotels to focus on unique accommodations close to nature. We know that where you stay is an important part of your experience. We’ve chosen hotels and inns with character, ecological consciousness and superb locations near the nature highlights you’ve come to experience.
- Our Quality-Value Guarantee Ensures Your Superior Florida Experience
