PRAIRIE BUGGY TOURS

Ranger led Prairie Buggy tours will resume in November. For more information please call the office at 863.462.5360.

This tour offers visitors an opportunity to access portions of the Preserve they might not otherwise be able to enjoy. This 2 ½ hour tour will take you through the best and largest example of Florida Dry Prairie in the world. Staff will reveal the subtle beauties of the Prairie, both on foot and atop the deck of the buggy. Visitors will often see alligators, white tail deer, wild turkey and a wide array of birds. Buggy tours are only offered on weekends and only those holidays recognized by the State of Florida between the months of November and March. Two tours per day: one in the morning, 8:30am, and one in the afternoon, 2:00pm, (this is the time the buggy leaves, so please be here before the listed times). Be aware that the buggy holds 8 passengers. Reservations ARE REQUIRED and can be made up to 60 days in advance by calling the preserve at (863) 462-5360.  $17.00 (plus tax) for adults, $9.00 (plus tax) for children 17 and under.
