Shark Valley Tram Tours
Shark Valley Tram Tours offers a two-hour, open air tour through the Shark Valley section of Everglades National Park.  All tours are led by park trained naturalists, fully prepared to make your journey a memorable one.  Beside giving insight into the ecosystem as a whole, your guide will also help to point out some of the 'hidden' aspects which help to make this a world re-nown wetlands.  The open vehicles allow visitors to view wildlife within the sawgrass prairies on either side of the tram.

At the half-way point of the tour, a 45 foot high observation deck gives visitors an opportunity to enjoy the tranquil vistas of the Everglades, extending outward 20 miles in all directions.  A gradual ramp provides easy access to the observation tower deck, and every part of the ramp and deck provide chances to view something different.


Visitation is highest from
December 26th through April 25th,
and reservations are
strongly
recommended
during this
time period.  You may reserve
for the 9, 10, 2, 3, and 4:00
trams. There is no deposit required
for reservations, but tickets MUST
be picked up at least
30 minutes
prior
to scheduled tour time.
Walk up visitation spikes in the middle
of the day,so reservations
cannot be
made for the 11, 12, or 1:00 tours.

Tram tours are accessible
for persons with disabilities.
Please call ahead so our staff
will be ready to accommodate
any special needs you
may have.
Shark Valley does not have
any restaurant facilities
available within the Park.
Vending machines with
small snacks and drinks
are available near the
tram office.
