There’s always a surprise in store on our Everglades’ National Park Eco Tours from Azul del Mar in Key Largo.

This time it’s a group of Outward Bound sailors who cut a fine picture as their twin masted, shallow-draft Sharpie slices through the turquoise chop near Whaleback Key in Florida Bay.

Camping is permitted at Nest Key where you can observe Roseate Spoonbills, Snowy Egrets, Great White Heron, Flamingo, Anhingas, Eagles and many other birds in abundance.
