Flamingo Shuttle

Flamingo is a small settlement in the extreme southeast corner of Everglades National Park, about 130 miles (by surface roads) from Everglades City. However, many adventurous folks prefer to visit the Park by water and make the ambitious journey between the two locations by canoe or kayak. It’s an amazing trip, one that many say is a life-changing experience and certainly offers many, many opportunities to view rare wildlife (including the highly endangered American Crocodile, Flamingos, dolphins, sharks, rays, and a multitude of migratory birds).

The most commonly traveled water route through the Park is called the Wilderness Waterway, and travels mostly inshore waterways. Some paddlers choose to make an outer loop around Cape Sable, which offers a chance to paddle in the open waters of Florida Bay.  This option adds to the length of the trip and can provide additional challenges with tides, currents and waves. Whichever route you choose, most paddlers make the trip over a period of 7 to 10 days.  Recently, a repeat guest here at the Ivey House and EvergladesAdventures.com paddled from Everglades City to Flamingo and back in just seven days! When asked what inspired him to do such a remarkable thing, he simply said “I like to paddle”. So – whether you are an avid athlete who enjoys paddling for miles and miles in a single day; or a free spirit who likes to take in every amazing sight and enjoy a slower ride, you will have the time of your life on this epic journey!
