Full description

Discover the Everglades National Park, a diverse landscape providing crucial habitats for numerous rare and endangered species. Take an airboat ride, and view alligators, turtles, and even the elusive Florida panther. 

After paying the park admission fee, immerse yourself in swampland often referred to as the River of Grass. The park known as such because of the endless prairies of sawgrass that rise three to ten feet above the surface of the water.

Encounter lush vegetation of the Everglades which also includes mangroves, cypress, palms, pines, and hardwood hammocks (small islands). The sawgrass is often so dense that travel is only possible through natural water passages.

Ride on an airboat, which is designed to operate well in shallow water and marshlands. Propelled by an aircraft-type propeller and powered by either an aircraft or automotive engine, have a fast and fun journey.

Complete your visit with a wildlife and alligator show. Get up close with these remarkable creatures in their natural habitat.

Our guide was exceptional! He was good humored, cheerful, funny, was willing to answer all our questions.....I'm sure he's heard those same questions on every trip, but he took it all in stride. He made us feel safe and comfortable, slowed down when he saw something of interest so we could all get a look, and when one of us saw something he was willing to stop and help us figure it out. He was knowledgeable about the area, the wildlife, and even the history of the area, and recommended a few books as well. I would most definitely make the airboat ride a top priority when planning a trip to the Everglades.

We got on the boat right away! The tour was very informative & a lot of fun! At the specific location we met at, there was a gift shop and a bar to grab a bite to eat when we got off the airboat. We really enjoyed the wildlife show following the airboat ride as well. Would definitely go again!!

The guides were excellent end helped the tourists to understand and observe the wildlife in Everglades. The motors of the airboats are very noicy but I guess there is not much to do about it. We had the chance to see one alligator in its' natural habitat and many more alligators in a show at the end of the tour.
