Owner description: See Florida the way it used to be…from an airboat! Loxahatchee Everglades Tours is fun, exciting and educational! Take an airboat tour and see all the wonders of nature in their natural state! Glide over a “river of grass” and along the way enjoy the flora (water lilies, sawgrass and cattails to name a few) and fauna (some might expect to see turtles, snakes, birds and alligators)! We do not cage or pen any animals and we do not feed them!enjoy these wonders in their natural habitat!

This is a fun experience whether you're a Floridian or tourist (we had both in our party). Dan is a great, knowledgable guide who seems to love his job. In fact, all the employees seem like happy campers. Everyone should do an airboat ride once, why not in the Everglades?! It was an 80 degree, overcast day. Very pleasant. I wouldn't want to go when it's 90 with no breeze but if you like it hot, why not! Can't believe it took me so long to do this. Fit it in if you can.

We were trying to think of some ideas to do with a visiting friend from NY and, because we have never been on an air boat ride, thought maybe it would be a fun idea. After doing some research, we decided to this tour because it was the closest to home. Well, we were glad we did! No reservations needed and we didn't wait long for the next tour. It was reasonably priced. The boat itself held maybe 20 people but every seat was comfortable with a good view - it didn't matter where you sat. Although, the guide did go through some large grass areas giving the two little boys in the front a thrill. We were shown the different birds and grass and everything living in the everglades. We saw about 12-14 alligators - which was really fun. The are may trails out there and one can easily get lost. We were out the full hour and we really had a good time. Would go back with different visitors!

An amazing experience. See The Everglades in its natural state on one of their airboats. Our guide, Dan, was a real pro. Extremely knowledgeable about the area and it's wildlife. The boat ride itself is very cool and gives you a beautiful view of The Everglades in all its glory. We saw around 10 gators and lots of gorgeous (some huge) birds. It was my favorite day of our 9 day trip! Gorgeous!!!

What a great experience! Very knowledgeable guides--you can tell they aren't there just to give you a joy ride. They were respectful of the environment and we saw turtles, gators and birds in their natural habitat. I would highly recommend this attraction.

I am so glad that we decided to do this even though the weather wasn't cooperating. It was so beautiful seeing the Everglades and the wildlife in the area.

Our guide, Dan, was very knowledgeable and gave us a nice tour with a lot of information. Dan found and pointed out the various birds and gators as well as the vegetation we were encountering. He was even nice enough to take each groups photos with their own cameras. What a great souvenir!

We only did the 50 minute tour, but look forward to doing this again for a longer tour and going further into the Everglades.
