The Jungle Prada Tour

The Jungle Prada Tour is a guided tour that covers 1,000 years of Florida history.  It takes place at a Tocobaga Indian village site along Boca Ciega Bay in St. Petersburg.  The village spanned the whole coast, but the part we tour on is a 3-acre, private property in the “Jungle” neighborhood.  We’ll explore one of the best-preserved American Indian mounds in Florida while we discuss the lives of the Tocobaga people, who lived here from roughly 1,000 AD – 1,600 AD.

The Jungle Prada Site Complex is also thought to be the landing place of the 1528 Narváez expedition, the survivors of which, led by Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca, walked from Florida all the way to the Pacific Ocean (1528 – 1536).

We are located directly across the bay from John’s Pass and Treasure Island.  The privately-owned Anderson Mound has been lovingly preserved by the Anderson family for over 80 years.  You’ll meet the peacocks (residents of the Jungle Prada since the 1950s), discover native plants used by the Tocobaga in their everyday lives, and explore a side of St. Pete that you never knew existed!
