You don’t need a reservation for our standard tours since they leave throughout the day. If you choose to do a private tour, we appreciate a reservation so we can be sure we can have a captain ready for you upon your arrival.
During your guided tour of The Everglades, our experienced airboat captains try their best find wildlife such as alligators, birds, fish, and turtles. You also hear stories about The Everglades ecosystem and even some history of The Everglades.
Approximately 15-25 guests board each general admission boat ride. However in our fleet of 20+ airboats we have boats that can seat from 1-35 passengers. If you are interested in booking a group or a Private Adventure call us.
Being on a smaller boat earns you the opportunity to get deeper into the Everglades. With a Private Adventure, you can spend up to two hours exploring The Everglades with your captain.
Any age child can enjoy an airboat ride. We advise parents that our boats are very noisy and we provide ear plugs for everyone riding. All children aged six and under must wear a life jacket which we provide. Guests over the age of six may also obtain and wear a life jacket if they wish. It is a safe and smooth enjoyable ride.
