Animals, like tabloid celebrities, often display outlandish behavior and sport eye-catching plumage, yet paradoxically hide from eager photographers at favorite watering holes. Track down camera-shy fauna with today's deal: for $12, you get two adult tickets for a wildlife boat tour of Myakka River State Park from Myakka Wildlife Tours, located in Sarasota (a $24 value). Tours are available February 3, 4, 5, and 6, at 10 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1 p.m., or 2:30 p.m. each day. The $6 park entrance fee is not included in today's deal.
Myakka Wildlife Tours offers relaxing, approximately one-hour rides on a smoothly gliding air-powered boat throughout Myakka River State Park’s 58 square miles. The boat’s flat bottom allows it to approach grassy, shallow areas inaccessible to traditional vessels, giving passengers close-up photo ops of saw-toothed alligators, lanky sandhill cranes, and other native critters inhabiting Upper Myakka Lake’s shores. After disembarking, intrepid adventurers can continue their explorations on foot through the park's 39 miles of hiking trails or take to its elevated canopy walkway for a Tikbalang’s-eye view of prairies, wetlands, and pinelands.
