Fort Lauderdale Airboat Tours

The Florida Everglades is one of America’s last great wildernesses – a fascinating and diverse ecosystem that remains surprisingly unspoiled.  These wetlands are home to some of the most unusual and exotic bird and animal life in North America. This is despite the best efforts of Man to encroach on their territory. The only way possible to see them is by airboats.

The Florida Everglades is home to 67 different threatened or endangered species.

Airboat Rides in the Everglades are one of the best ways to experience the real in-depth look at the echo system, particularly rich and diverse, from herons and egrets to cranes and ospreys. But it’s perhaps for the gators that we know the Everglades the best. An airboat ride won’t disappoint you on this score. Experienced captains who grew up in the waterways of the Everglades conduct our airboat rides. They know just where to take you to see the best that this wondrous natural habitat has to offer.
