Keep in mind:

  • Reserved tours of the Orlando Wetlands take you through the journey of a water droplet running through our water reclamation system. Every tour is slightly different and there are countless species and sub-habitats to observe. You will visit the inflow, outflow, and the highest point in our facility, Oyler Overlook. These tours last around 2 hours.
  • Tram cart tours pick-up and drop-off at the Education Center, directly west of the main parking lot.
  • Tours must be booked at least two weeks in advance. Please be advised that reserved tours fill up quickly and we may be several months booked out. The winter and spring seasons are our busiest months. Please plan ahead for the most optimal tour experience!
