Air boat tours on Tamiami Trail


We will be doing a touring holiday of Southern Florida in early June and we really want to do an Air Boat tour of the Everglades.

We will be travelling from Naples through to Miami on the Tamiami Trail. Are there Air Boat tours accessible off this Trail? We will be stopping at Shark Valley as well but I don't think they do Air Boats?

Plenty of airboat operators to choose from, give yourself some extra time when crossing 41 due to ongoing construction. You are correct, no airboats in Shark Valley.

There is a tour operator just across the street from Shark Valley (about 1/4 mile West of SV). The Miccosouki tribe owns it and it is the cheapest one you will find. In my opinion, all airboat tours are ABOUT the same anyway, so on the rare occasions we want to take one . . . We use them and save a lot of money!
