Everglade Boat Rides From Key Largo?

I'm wondering what the access is to the Everglades from Key Largo. Are there airboats from there or do we need to drive somewhere else for that and if so, how far away is this? Thanks.

Main entrance to the park is just outside Florida City about a 50min drive from Key Largo.

Dont quote me but I dont remember seeing any operators near this entrance, from there your best bet(again from what I remember) would be off of the Tamiami Trail (41) about an hour and a half from Key Largo.

There are a couple of operators in the area if you follow the signs but you won't find airboat rides in Key Largo you have to head towards the park entrance (although you can't use airboats inside the park boundary)

The airboat operator is at www.everglades.com

This trip list gives you directions to a quick way to see the actual park (and have a milk shake). I would do all 3: milk shake, park, airboat....maybe a second milk shake.
