After lunch, visit Jungle Island, an interactive zoological park with exotic animals and engaging exhibits. It's a great place for students to learn about wildlife conservation.

Set sail on the Everglades airboat tour. The Everglades are a unique natural habitat in Florida, and this experience will allow students to learn about the ecosystem, wildlife, and conservation efforts. They can see alligators, birds, and other native animals in their natural habitat.

After the airboat tour, head to the nearby Gator Grill for dinner. This family-friendly restaurant specializes in Florida cuisine, including alligator bites (for the adventurous eaters) and other delicious options like seafood and Southern comfort food.
