The Florida Everglades region
expands almost 300 miles
from north to south and about 150 miles from east to west at its longest and widest points. Included in the area are the cities of Cape Coral, Fort Lauderdale, Homestead, Kissimmee, Miami, Naples, West Palm Beach, the Florida Keys, and areas just outside of Orlando. Over the past century and a half, government projects drained the Everglades and installed canals and levees, creating beautiful pathways to explore the Everglades in a canoe.
Today the ecosystem demonstrates a great degree of biodiversity, making it a prime canoeing and kayaking destination. From the ever changing scenery - Sawgrass marshes, wet prairies, fresh-water swamps, hardwood hammocks, and ponds and sloughs (or swamps) � to the shallow waters & seamless transitions between vegetations, the Everglades offers visitors a unique and varied experience. The variance across the region, in addition to the vastness of the region itself, means there are many places to experience canoeing in the Everglades.
