Depending on where you’re from, airboat tours may not be common. Airboats are commonly found in marshy areas, such as the Bayous of Louisiana. The Everglades of South Florida is the main place where you can find airboat tours in the world. Comprising nearly half of Florida’s southern tip, the Everglades is a large tropical wetland and one of the United States’ largest national parks. Vast waterways of river grass and Mangroves fill the gorgeous ecosystem.
Home to some of the unique species of animals globally, the Everglades is truly a one-of-a-kind destination. With as large as the Everglades is, it was only a matter of time before everyone attempted to profit off it. Several companies provide airboat tours throughout the Everglades. That being said, most of these companies are simply attempting to make a profit and don’t really care about the beautiful ecosystem that’s all around us. Fort Lauderdale Airboat Rides continues to separate itself from the competition for this very reason.
Why Fort Lauderdale Airboat Rides?
For over 30 years, Fort Lauderdale Airboat Rides has provided the best eco-tours through the Everglades. Our captains have traversed the great “River of Grass” for as long as they’ve been alive. They’re proud of their knowledge of the area and want to do nothing more than sharing it with their guests. Our deep-rooted time spent in the Everglades allows us to not only teach passengers about the areas they’re riding through but allows us to make your journey truly one of a kind.
Commercial airboat tours will typically shove as many people onto a large airboat as possible. They’ll then take the same predetermined path they created and provide the same scripted information they’ve told plenty of times before. These tours only last around 20-30 minutes, so your exposure to the Everglades is highly limited. Fort Lauderdale Airboat Rides does its absolute best to offer its guests a truly intimate experience with the Everglades. It’s a stunning place that deserves to be seen once, so why have that taken away by other groups talking the entire time?
One-Hour & Two-Hour Boat Trips
We only offer private tours, so you’re guaranteed to get the most out of your tour. Fort Lauderdale Airboat Rides tours come in one and two-hour packages. Our one hour tour is a high-speed adventure through the river grass beds. Due to its high speeds and rapid nature, you’re not as likely to see rare species that live in the Everglades. That said, you are still more likely to do so than on a commercial airboat tour. Our two-hour ride is the premier ecotourism tour available in the Everglades. We can’t ensure that we’ll see some animals as they are wild. However, we will take you to the spots where we know we have a high chance of spotting them. We’ll also take you to some of the more unique and hidden spots. Discover vistas that will immediately take your breath away.
We want nothing more than for guests on our Fort Lauderdale airboat rides to have the best time of their life. Our captains will do their absolute best to answer any questions you may have while on your journey. If you’re looking for the best Fort Lauderdale airboat rides available, then contact us today!
