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.

We went on a similar tour about twenty years ago and, to be honest, it wasn't great - particularly the way we felt our wallets were being vacuumed. However, these guys REALLY know their stuff. Our guide, Steve, was very knowledgeable and, with the Deliverance banjos playing in my head when he took us down the man-made channel, we went... More

Capt. Chad was so enthusiastic. His love of the Everglades was contagious. We learned about the area, saw wildlife and beautiful plants. The sunset was gorgeous. And the go-fast airboat was a lot of fun.

This was a great tour. This was also because of our 'driver' Willie! He did a great job telling about the Everglades as well as make the tour an adventure!

They both said that it was the best part of our vacation, and we had had a very nice vacation in the Keys. Our airboat driver and guide was Ozzie.... More

Capt. Chad and his coworker were fantastic. Very informative, engaging and fun. We saw 2 alligators up close. The tour was worth it and we hope to bring everyone down for this tour. Good for all ages! Just be careful don't turn into gator bait!

I want to give a special thank you to our tour guider. Our guider's name was Captain Willie (sorry if I spelled it wrong). Captain Willie not only provided us with free water, he also gave us a life-time adventure through the Everglades Park. He showed us many features, which were in the park, which me and my family really... More

Awesome to actually ride on one of boats that you see in the movies. Steve our driver knew tons of the area details and where to find the birds and alligators. Bring a camera and sense of adventure.

The airboat experience has been one of the best note of my holiday in Miami. You really feel to be as in a film. The staff knows very well all the parts of the Everglades, where to go to find alligators. Really impressive to see these small eyes appearing from the water! We saw also a small show about all...
