Okefenokee Swamp Tour

$109per person

Take a trip to what the local Indians named “Okefenokee” which translates to “the land of the trembling earth.” This day trip travels to the Waycross entrance of the Okefenokee Swamp Park for an exploration of the swamp’s ecosystem and history. A special Swamp Boat cruise guided by rangers delves into the waterways of the swamp for a deeper understanding of the importance of this unique ecosystem. Then join the Swamp Park Train which circles the swamp and will explain the history of the park and its first settlers. We end at Pioneer Island where costumed interpreters will describe the lives of these settlers, including entrance to a blacksmith and 1860s homestead. Finally, enjoy a live animal and nature show featuring snakes, turtles, and alligators. A boxed lunch will be provided. This is a great day out in natures backyard.
