What’s on in annamariaisland – Tours – Aligator Tours

Published on July 23, 2017 by Terry Whyte

Alligator Tours:

Looking for something different to do experience something very few people every witness. Literally hundreds and hundreds of alligators all gathered at Myakka State Park just a 40 minutes drive from Absolute Anna Maria located at 601 Gulf Dr. N. on beautiful Anna Maria Island.

Permission is granted to come aboard one of the world’s two largest covered air boats, the “Myakka Maiden,” or the “Gator Gal” for a scenic cruise on the 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 the 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.

Learn about Florida flora and fauna by taking the one-hour narrated tour aboard the “world’s largest air boat” to see ‘gators’ in the wild, or take the land tour which is a one-hour tram ride through Myakka River State Park.
You don’t have to “rough it” to take the special “Tram Safari” into the back country of Myakka River State Park. Discover what life in old Florida was like as you see it through the eyes of the early settlers.

Learn to detect clues of the presence of resident wildlife as you pass through shady hammocks, majestic pine flat woods, fertile marshes and sunny prairies.

If you want to gain an understanding of the intricate workings of a natural ecosystem in progress, you have to experience it for yourself.

Hi, I am Terry, my wife Sandy (who writes our blogs) are the caring, hands on owners and managers of Anna Maria Condo Rentals. We’ve been here for years, so we know Anna Maria Island, the island’s condos, and our island’s guests. We understand you – what you need, what you want, and what you’d really like to have. With us, every stay balances the rigorous requirements of professional managers with the enthusiasm, pride and personal touches of an owner-managed rental. That means that with us, you enjoy the dual benefits of an in-the-know local combined with the professionalism and expertise of a serious company. Come on down and experience the difference for yourself. Our family fell in love with Anna Maria Island the first time we visited in 1989. Every summer since, we’ve spent our vacations on this island, and in 1995, we bought our first condo here. Having a young family at the time meant we had to rent our condo to offset ownership costs. Thankfully, by offering luxurious accommodations at an affordable price, we were able to keep the condo booked for an average of 50 weeks a year. These steady bookings allowed us to purchase our second condo in 2013, and a third in 2014. While opening up these homes has allowed us to keep returning to the island—and even better, to a house that feels like home—we also truly enjoy offering a place to guests to discover Anna Maria Island and feel at home here, too.
