Vendor Services for Myakka River State Park


Myakka Wildlife Boat and Tram Tours

Permission has been granted to come aboard one of the world's two largest airboats, the "Myakka Maiden" or the “Gator Gal" for a scenic cruise on Upper Myakka Lake. Discover what makes the Myakka unique among America's freshwater lakes. Hear intriguing stories about the alligator, anhinga, and sandhill crane as you become acquainted with the variety of creatures that make their home here. These air-powered vessels venture into shallow, grassy areas where traditional crafts of such size wouldn't dare to go. The leisurely ride is so safe and smooth you'll have no problem taking photographs to bring home.

Take a "Tram Safari" into the back country of the park to find out what life in old Florida was like without ever leaving your seat. Learn to detect clues of the presence of wildlife as you pass through shady hammocks, pine flatwoods, fertile marshes and sunny prairies. To gain an understanding of the intricate workings of a natural ecosystem in progress, you have to experience it for yourself. Tram only runs Dec. 16 thru May 31.

Tickets sold at ticket booth in concession area. Adults: $14.00 per person Children 6 -12 yrs: $7.00 (Children 5 & under free in adult’s lap).
