Owner description: 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!

We had a fun time on a really beautiful day. We lucked out with the weather - it was a rare sunny, but also cool, dry day and it made the trip feel special. Our captain, Dan, is very knowledgeable about the wildlife in the area and made sure to stop the boat to point out birds and alligators whenever... More

Great experience! We came to see the gators and wildlife, and we did! Our guide was Matt, and he was great. Very knowledgeable about the history and wildlife of the Everglades, and he was very good at spotting the wildlife. He warned us, before we left the dock, that the water levels were up so we may not see too... More

We loved our Everglades tour with the extremely knowledgeable and funny guide, Dan. Got to see lots of alligators -- 10-12 -- and many gorgeous birds, and Dan shared a bit of history, zoological trivia, and Indian lore while conducting us through an exhilarating tour than shifted from cloudy to sunny to pelting rain. (There were warm towels back at... More

Well, to keep it short. It could be a very nice experience if there would be different type of boat. This airboat makes terrible noise and any living creature will be terrified and that's why you can see them from very long distance only. They just will escape. However, the tour guide was amazing. A man with a extremely good... More

Lots of airboat tours in the surrounding area. We choose this one because of the great reports on tripadvisor and the 'normal' leaflet (just one with information and not a million pictures and promises). We arrived early (after the longgg ride on loxahatchee road!) to catch the first boat. We were even the first guests. Eventually we had 7 guests... More

I have done airboat tours in south florida before and wanted to take my wife on one. So i looked up reviews for an operator near our hotel and the reviews were good. The tour never got more then half a mile from the bank of the everglades and you could see homes 90% of the time. we saw 2... More

It is refreshing to be on an Everglades air boat tour where the main purpose is not to go galavanting off through the grasses as fast as you can go, but to instead focus on the wildlife and ecosystem that surrounds you. Loved the trip and would take it again in a heartbeat. Dan was a funny and very knowledgable... More

If you are staying around the Boca/ Delray area, and want to take a ride on an airboat in the everglades,check this out. We saw a few gators and birds, but really wanted to ride on an airboat. Friendly people running the show and captain Dan at the helm of the boat, and full of information .

As we were in Florida it seemed a must to find an Airboat Tour. At the end of a dead end road in the middle of a nature reserve we found just that. Only 25 minutes from Boca Raton we found Loxahatchee Everglades Tours. Don our guide was an interesting and informative person who spent time explaining and showing us... More
