Miccosukee Indian Village & Airboat Rides
Generations ago, Miccosukees, a branch of the Seminole tribe, took refuge from the Seminole wars in the depths of the Everglades marshland. At this enclave you can see a typical village of thatched-roof, open-sided huts. Tiny squares of brightly colored cloth pieced into the famous Seminole quilting patterns unique to the tribe make wonderful souvenirs. Airboat rides on flat-bottomed craft propelled by jet engines skim across the Everglades for a look at alligators. At special shows, brave wrestlers tackle the toothy reptiles to show you their lethal teeth.
Not only is it much less expensive than all the air boat tours in Loxahatchee, but you can also see demo's and get upclose and personal with the alligators. Service is amazing and even though you have to drive forever to get to it, it is definetely worth it.
I really liked seeing the traditional garb and dances of the Miccosukee Indians. The artwork/clothing is gorgeous. I also enjoyed watching the "alligator wrestling" which is really not wrestling, but watching how they can catch and calm alligators with their bare hands. Amazing!
They put some money into the course and it has improved greatly over the last couple years. I was pleased and thought it a good not great course for the price you pay. It was everything I expected from a $50 greens fee and was pleasently suprised by the GPS in the gof carts, although it did not work for the entire round. There are 27 holes here and some man made water hazards which I am not a big fan of, but they add some difficulty to the otherwise tipical flat Miami golf.
