Treat yourself, your friend's and loved ones to the experience of a lifetime! An airboat safari on board one of our spacious airboats. We will take you deep into the Florida Everglades; one of the last remaining wetlands in North America. Witness the natural wildlife of this magnificent and diversified eco-system. You will see alligators, deers, snakes, bears, panthers, bobcats, raccoons and over 300 species of birds, that call the Everglades their home. Our experienced staff are professional, courteous and knowledgeable. Our airboats have padded "waterproof" seats to keep you dry, safe and comfortable. We offer private and semi-private tours, as well as group packages.

These airboats give such a great ride and so smooth. At times I felt like I was flying above the Everglades in the wide open space with the fresh air blowing my hair back and my face smiling the whole time. Cpt. Willy made my husband and I both feel comfortable and safe. He was very knowledgable about plants and... More

We did a private tour w/ Captain Chad and it was incredible. He showed us the wildlife (gators and baby gators, birds) as well as told us about the ecosystem, showed us how the Native American's used the various plant life, etc. It was so informative, scenery was beautiful -- and fun.

Captain Chad was very knowledgable, experienced and fun. We took the hour and a half tour and seemed like we were gone minutes. We saw several crocodiles and learned a great deal about the flora and fauna. Enjoyed every minute!!

The airboat ride was an excellent way to discover the Everglades ! Capt Chad was an amazing driver as well as an incredible guide. We learned a lot of things, were able to get very close to an alligator (or 'gator' as they call them in the Everglades), see different kinds of plants... All the team was very professional. They...

We booked a private tour and it was great. We had Captain Willie who was knowledgeable about the Everglades. He made sure we were comfortable and let us know we were in for a great time. He appears to have a real connection with the wildlife in the area and stopped to allow us to take photos of anything of... More

Capt Chad was an excellent guide to the everglades. Fun way to get into nature, learn about the environment, and enjoy the speed of the wind and the boat. They made sure you had access to water. They provided ear protection (if your ears are sensitive bring ear plugs too). Great company, great guides, AAAA+++

We (group of four) went on a 90 minute airboat ride with "Airboat In Everglades" in early October 2013 and it was a blast. We had been hanging out on the beach all week and we finally had a cloudy / overcast day so we decided to leave the beach and do something different. Airboat Captain Chad took us on... More
