Everglades National Park: Airboat Tour and Wildlife Show

1. Everglades National Park: Airboat Tour and Wildlife Show

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.

Fantastic airboat ride through the Everglades! Daniel was an amazing guide - he knew all of the best places to see alligators (we saw 8-10 of them up close), and he was knowledgeable in answering our many questions about the Everglades. I went with my husband and adult children - we all loved it and would highly recommend it!

The package offered was reasonably price. The bus was simple to find and the ride was comfortable the operator of the boat was well versed and we actually seen a lot of wildlife and an alligator as well.

Fun! I wish it had more science, but it was for a delightful mass audience and fun and very well organized anyway.

this is my 2nd ride in 4 months. i enjoyed both and gets better based on the diversity of the guide.

Wonderful experience. Very interested and interesting guides.
