Great Way to See the Everglades

With as large as the Everglades National Park is, it's almost impossible to see it all. However, this gives you a great opportunity to see places you aren't able to walk into.

There are many of these parks along the highway through the Everglades. We picked this one because it came up on Waze. I suspect we'll never get to compare it with another one. We thoroughly enjoyed our morning. We selected the airboat private tour (earplugs supplied), 40 minutes and didn't regret it. The normal tour packs in 40 or 50... More

I have always wanted to take an air boat ride on the Everglades and during our recent trip to Florida i finally got my wish. The park opened at 9am, we arrived at 9.30am but they didn't actually start doing any air boat rides until 10am so i wouldn't suggest getting there early. We purchased our tickets in advance online... More

First, this isn't the airboat from the old TV show "Flipper." This is a large airboat to seat many people. Ear plugs are supplied. Once we were out in the river of grass, it is easy to see why the boat doesn't go racing through (like in the movies). The point is to protect the wildlife. Our guide was very... More

I have wanted to do this for a long time so whilst travelling from Miami to Marco island on route 41 we stopped of to check out these guys. My initial impression wasn't good, huge twin engine airboats that could carry a coach party not what I wanted but discovered they also do smaller boats for private tours. These are... More

Took the 30 minute tour. Well worth it. If you've never been on an everglades airboat tour, I highly recommend it. The captain was excellent, he clearly loves his job and that comes through. Our party of four were merged in with a large tour bus group. There were a few tour bus groups there when we were there, so... More

What we experienced was not as excited from what was described in the tour brochure. First, the air boat ride, though fun, was not that long with just a few stops supposedly to look for alligators and other inhabitants in the park. Saw only one alligator, a four footer. A turtle, about the size of my two in the backyard.... More

We took a tour with Carnival at the end of our cruise that took us to this location in the everglades and then back to the airport. We were very happy we took the tour as we enjoyed every second of the adventure. Wish we had more time on the boat as it was a lot of fun, but none... More
