My boy wants to do an Everglades trip this summer, which could mean just about anything. We’d probably do 3 days, not camp (learned my lesson when I was a kid), ideally one day of the itinerary would include going after snook. He really wants to see a crocodile. But open to suggestions as that’s not a lot of time to explore everything.
There are always crocodiles right at the marina (as well as larger numbers of them in the tributaries that drain the Cape Sable area into East Cape canal…). From small hungry fish that can provide lots of action for kids you’ll have a great shot at hooking a kid onto a trophy or a fish that’s bigger than they are if you want…
For a single day trip your best bet is to stay at one of the many motels and hotels in the Homestead/ Florida City area -then drive the fifty miles down to Flamingo for that day’s fishing… Staying down at Flamingo for a few days, either on a houseboat or camping is do-able - but in summer you’ll be coping with clouds of mosquitoes… Right now we’ve got our share of skeeters, but nothing like it is in summer…
