Full description
Discover the Everglades National Park, the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States. It is a diverse landscape providing crucial habitats for numerous rare and endangered species. It is considered the premier location to view a variety of reptiles, including the American alligator, birds, turtles, deer, wild boars, and even the elusive Florida panther.  The swampland is often referred to as the River of Grass because it creates endless prairies of sawgrass that rise three to ten feet above the surface of the water. The sawgrass is often so dense that travel is only possible through natural water passages. The lush vegetation of the Everglades also includes mangrove, cypress, palms, pines, and hardwood hammocks (small islands).  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. The water is shallow enough in most places that you can stand in it so don’t be alarmed if your guide takes a quick dip during your tour.

We went in the hottest part of the day not expecting to see any thing. Along the tour we spotted Blue Herron, Sea Turtles, Schools of different fish, many other kinds of birds and just as our tour was about to end we even seen an alligator. After our tour there was a reptile show. It was very educational. After the show we went over to an alligator statue to get pictures. While we were taking turns getting pictures a real life alligator came up behind us. I thanked God for the fence the Air Boat company had put in. They also have a small restaurant and souvenir store to take advantage of. All the people working were very polite and courteous. I plan on going back one day with my children.

Excellent company, Gator Airboat rides. Get your Guide had no mention of the name Gator Airboat in the voucher, description, or anywhere. Thankfully the meeting point address was correct. With many airboat ride companies in that area, it would have been nice to know which one we purchased from. Our guide in the boat was excellent. Jay was his name. Knowledgeable of the Everglades and creatures that live there. My wife did point out that we saw a few gators and Jay did say that two different gators were named Lillie, but we still had a good time and would recommend Gator Airboat rides.

This exceeded our expectations and our family had the best time on the airboat with our guide Robert. He was knowledgeable about the Everglades with a funny sense of humor. John did the alligator show shortly after the ride and he was also a laid back fellow with hands on experience with alligators and snakes of the area. Great time and a great price. The $ goes towards the upkeep and care of the animal species that are indigenous to the Everglades, so it’s a win win for all!
