Full description

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. Get up close with these remarkable creatures in their natural habitat.

The overall experience was nice. This was our first experience with air boat so we thoroughly enjoyed the ride. We did get a glimpse of a few marine animals during the ride. One thing I didn’t like is the ride duration, we came back to where we started within 15 minutes I expected it to be a little longer.

Enjoyable and we were glad we didn't have to be there at a specific time. We wanted to give our grandchildren an opportunity to experience an airboat ride and to see alligators in the wild. Mission accomplished. The show after the ride was fun. We could have spent a lot more money on other trips, but why?

This experience was a knock out! Great from start to finish. Very easy to find using Google Maps and easy to park. The boat was a blast and the show after was equally as fun! Especially because the animal show host, John, was so knowledgeably and funny. Definitely recommend if you’re in the Everglades. I was just passing through, but I’m really glad I stopped and booked this. :) I recommend bringing some cash if you want to tip these guys, as they are all great at what they do and very passionate.
