There’s no better way to see the Florida Everglades than by taking an airboat ride. Safe, exhilarating and fun for all the family, an airboat tour brings you face to face with some of the most beautiful Everglades scenery to be found in Miami Florida, as well as colorful wildlife. An airboat ride also gives you the opportunity to come face to face with Florida’s most famous residents – the Florida Alligator for which the state is justly famous.
The Everglades are one of America’s last great wildernesses – a fascinating and diverse ecosystem that remains surprisingly unspoilt. Despite the best efforts of Man to encroach on their territory, the everglades are home to some of the most unusual and exotic bird and animal life to be found anywhere in North America, and there’s no better way to see them than on an airboat ride with Miami Airboat Tours.
Birdlife in the Everglades is particularly rich and diverse, from herons and egrets to cranes and ospreys. But it’s perhaps for the Florida gators that the Everglades are best known, and an airboat tour won’t disappoint you on this score. Our airboat rides are conducted by experienced captains who grew up in the Everglades, so they know just where to take you to see the best that Everglades natural habitat has to offer.
Our airboat rides are comfortable and exciting, and the boats themselves are made to the highest standards. An airboat tour is really a great way to see the wetlands of the Everglades. Indeed, after the alligators themselves, airboats are probably one of Florida’s most famous sights!
