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!

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

This was a great experience. Dan was an excellent guide, educating us on the wildlife and vegetation. We will be back, bringing more friends and family.

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.
