The Lake Life – We Live It, You'll Love It!

Lake Okeechobee, also known as Florida’s Inland Sea, is the largest freshwater lake in the state of Florida and the ninth largest natural freshwater lake in the United States. Okeechobee covers 730 square miles or approximately half the size of the state of Rhode Island. The lake is divided between Glades, Okeechobee, Martin, Palm Beach, and Hendry counties. All five counties meet at one point near the center of the lake.

What's on the lake?

A Birding Paradise

Extensive marshes remain along the lake’s western portions and the entire lake is home to significant numbers of aquatic birds, wading birds, and shorebirds. Lake Okeechobee is one of the two most critical sites in Florida for the endangered snail kite.

In addition to herons, egrets, sandhill cranes, and wintering waterfowl, there are some especially exciting birds you may see on your Lake Okeechobee airboat tour!
