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!

I highly recommend Loxahatchee Everglades Tours. This is a great activity for any age level. You will see plenty of wildlife while learning about the area from their expert guides. It is obvious that this company is passionate about the Everglades and educating the public about this unique ecosystem. I have taken this tour 4 times and learn something new... More

This was a wonderful tour. Dan is a really knowledgeable tour guide. I have been on many tour boats before and this was my first trip to Florida, was not disappointed. Plenty of crock's, blue herons, and other wildlife. The day was perfect, not too hot and a nice breeze.

My wife and I enjoyed this ride - Never went on any other type of attraction like this before - but our experience was great: 1. Courteous and friendly staff 2. Very informative 3. Tried to show us all that there was to see.

Dan our tour guide was very educational, he took the time to go through and describe all the different birds and plants in the everglades when he would spot alligators he made a point to point them out. We had the chance to talk to the owner which is a native to the everglades, really nice guy.

It was ok ,but not worth the price. Saw a few alligators and some birds. I think we could have seen most of this from the shore without paying. Over priced for short tour.

We went on the 11am tour (they are hourly starting at 9am) a couple of days before Christmas. The airboat seats about 12 - 15 people. Our guide Matt, who was very knowledgeable, spent an hour driving us around the Everglades, pointing out wildlife, circling around for us to get a better look, and generally doing his best for us...

My family took a private airboat tour with Lyle over Christmas vacation and even my teenagers were completely dumbstruck by the experience. I am a Florida native and visiting the Everglades is one of the only ways that I can reconnect with what Florida used to be like. Lyle was a great guide--we saw tons of gators, including one with...

This was my 2nd air boat tour. A few years ago I took a private air boat in Miami it was good but this one was excellent. We did the 90 min private tour and it was well worth the money. We brought two 7 yr olds, one 9 year old and one 13 yr old and they all got... More

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
