Personalized Eco-Tours in Central Florida

Central Florida Eco-Tours

We have two standard tours running this year. They are listed below. We can also design specialty tours for you or your group to cover other areas of Central Florida outdoors. On all of our tours, your safety is of the utmost importance. Your guide has years of experience in the Florida outdoors. Florida Eco-tours run December through April, afternoons and evenings.

IbisThe Wildlife Walking Tour:

Our most popular wildlife tour is a 1.5-hour walking tour through a wildlife management area. An experienced tour guide will lead you on a leisurely 1 ½ mile walking tour where you will see a wide variety of Florida birds, mammals, amphibians and reptiles. Your guide will be equipped with a 60-power scope and tripod so you will see all the critters up close and personal, while keeping a safe distance. We recommend taking the tour the during last 3 hours of daylight for the best chance to see the most wildlife.
The cost of the tour is $60.00 for 1 to 5 people. Additional people may join us for $10.00 per person. Contact us at Roger@RogerFulton.com if you have any questions or want to make a reservation.

Trail Etiquette

Many of the trails covered in our hiking and biking books require you to get along with others sharing the trail.  We cover trail etiquette in our trail guides and in our book, Safe In The Woods.  A fellow from England contacted us and he has written an interesting article on trail etiquette from an international perspective.  You can access his article online at: http://www.wonderfulwellies.co.uk/hiking-etiquette-101-the-12-trail-rules-you-should-know/.
