Private Airboat Rides Are Best For Safety

Airboat rides are simply the best way to explore the Everglades, bringing closer to nature than ever. However, your safety is paramount to us, especially with the current COVID-19 crisis. Groups of people now represent a potential risk, which can affect tourism in general. We take social distancing and face masks very seriously and want to make our Fort Lauderdale Everglades tours the safest experience possible. Your health and the ones of our employees is crucial to us, and private airboat rides make it safer.

The state of Florida’s public health advice is that you should avoid crowds, close contact, and closed spaces. It is best to refrain from gatherings of more than ten people. Florida residents have been advised to wear masks and face coverings when social distancing is not feasible. We live in an unfortunate era, and following those small pieces of advice will help to keep you safer.

Going to public places puts you at a higher risk of being exposed to COVID-19. We want to mitigate this risk, which is why we always have and continue to offer private airboat rides. You can take a tour of the Everglades while doing so in a safer environment with your family or friends. Our private tours will avoid exposure to groups of strangers, prioritizing your safety for the best possible experience.

Private bookings mean smaller groups, meaning you will potentially have more room on the boat to practice social distancing. This will give you more space to sit in the boat, you won’t have to stay closed in with other people you don’t know. Our private tours aim to bring more intimacy and more safety for an all-around better and ultimately safer experience.
