See Florida the way it used to be…from an airboat! Loxahatchee Everglades Tours is fun, exciting and educational! Take an airboat tour and see all the wonders of nature in their natural state! Glide over a “river of grass” and along the way enjoy the flora (water lilies, sawgrass and cattails to name a few) and fauna (some might expect to see turtles, snakes, birds and alligators)! We do not cage or pen any animals and we do not feed them!enjoy these wonders in their natural habitat!

This was our first view of the Everglades, and seeing the alligators and various bird species was very interesting. The tour guide is incredibly knowledgeable about the area and the animals and conservation efforts. Only complaint was that at $45 a person for 50 minutes, it seemed a bit pricey for the animals that were around.

Really enjoyed the boat ride and saw lots of birds,egrets and gators. felt like the guide was rushing everything and would have enjoyed more of his information on the history of the natives. Museum was very interesting and a slide show was playing.

Great time with Wild Lyle our tour guide who gave us a lot of interesting information. We got to see many different species of birds and and a bunch of alligators. Our tour was supposed to be 50 minutes but it was much longer. I highly recommend this tour.

We had the opportunity to take this tour with "Wild Lyle" and loved, loved, loved it. Lyle Thomas was most informative and courteous. He spent a lot of time explaining the various plants, and wildlife we saw along the way and answered any questions he was asked. This is a worthwhile tour for anyone wishing to learn more about the... More

A nice airboat ride through the glades. We saw lots of herons, egrets, gators (from 3 feet to 9 feet), turtles, snake birds and fish. The driver would slow/stop when we approached any animals or birds so as to not frighten them before we got close. Half way through, the boat stopped and the driver offered to use each groups...

My husband and I, along with visiting guests, have visited this venue 4 times, today included. The experience we had today was the worst and "Wild Lyle" was very rude, not only to the boat operator who worked there, but to the patrons on the boat. My husband, granddaughter and I arrived at Loxahatchee at 11:00 a.m. for the 50... More

My husband and I took our 18th Loxahatchee Everglades Tour yesterday (over a period of 13 years) and we found it just as enjoyable and educational as our first trip. This is truly an experience in a natural environment. There are no caged animals and you won't find alligator wrestling here. There are no pretensions or efforts to impress .... More

I have taken this tour three times, as it is close to home, with very mixed results. The boat always goes around in a fixed circle on open water close to the bank. There is no field of grass or Everglades swamp experience. On two occasions we did not see alligators at all which was very disappointing. However, last time... More

A group of nine from the family went this morning and had "Wild Lyle" as a guide. Not only was the tour incredible, but Lyle provided an education that made us appreciate the beauty surrounding us even more. We saw plenty of alligators, birds, turtles and would do it again in a heartbeat. Thanks again to Lyle. Well worth a... More

If you're looking for an airboat ride in the Everglades for this area its a great choice. The people who drive the boat are very knowledgeable. You really see lots of alligators, birds and turtles. I have been to other air boat tours and saw hardly anything. There is a small museum there which is nice. It doesn't have a... More
