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.

Tours were every 20 mins and we arrived around 10 am. They are also rain or shine, luckily we beat out the rain and had a great time. It is mating season for the birds that inhabit the Everglades so we saw flocks and flocks of them. We also got lucky and saw several gators in the wild. However if you are not lucky enough to see any gators in the wild, after the tour there was a show where we were introduced to several animals including some amphibians, birds and of course gators. Our guide was great while we were out on the water and The show director was incredibly brave, getting into the cage with several alligators. We would definitely recommend as it is a great way to experience the national park and all the animals in captivity are rescued from fish and game. Definitely worth supporting!

We went on this tour with 2 eight month olds and it was the perfect amount of time. For the most part they seemed to enjoy being on the boat. We were on the boat for about half an hour and they provided us with life jackets and headphones for the babies. We saw four alligators on the tour and then enjoyed sitting in the shade for the wildlife show where we learned more about the animals in the area and saw a baby alligator and crocodile. They also have alligators around the property to look at afterwards and a gift shop with snacks and souvenirs. Overall it was a nice activity for the price.

The overall experience was nice. This was our first experience with air boat so we thoroughly enjoyed the ride. We did get a glimpse of a few marine animals during the ride. One thing I didn’t like is the ride duration, we came back to where we started within 15 minutes I expected it to be a little longer.
