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!

What an education, what a pleasure to have the chance to go on such a tour by a hugely professional, highly knowledgeable and pleasant team of guys! It was fantastic, we all learnt loads (me, wife 10yr old, 8yr old and our 6yr old all lov d it). No nanny state over the top health and safety, just perfect. Great... More

We took our 4, 6 and 10 year old children on the Everglades tour. We had a beautiful sunny morning. Our tour guide Matt was awesome! He was so nice and incredibly informative! He answered all of our questions. We were able to see many alligators and birds. The everglades are truly beautiful and something different to do. They supply... More

Enjoyed the air boat tour very much - especially the content and the guide (Matt). Good to be on the early tour in the hot/wet season as a better chance of seeing wildlife. Saw quite a few birds and plenty of alligators, which made the Australian very happy. Was fascinating to hear that introduced melaleuca are a problem in the... More

Our guide, Dan, was simply outstanding! He took us through beautiful waterways while explaining about local flora and fauna without ever a dull moment. The boats are not crowded, very clean, and they even provide ear-protection against the roar of the air-boat motor. A 1-hour tour is reasonably priced and provides for dozens of photo opportunities. I felt as though... More

Arrive early - 9am, get your wristbands and take a peek at the really interesting, air conditioned,museum and waiting area. Apply good sunscreen! Bring a baseball cap you can wear backwards or a hat that you can wear big headphones with - the airboat is that loud, but once you get moving is breezy. Dan is a SUPERB tour guide!... More

I loved going on this tour. The tour guide we had was extremely friendly, and knew a lot about the wildlife, history, and geography of south Florida. Tour was about an hour long and did not feel rushed or dragged. Great attraction for anyone interested in the Everglades!

We took a one-hour tour with Matt and had a great time. The boat holds about 12 people and was very comfortable. We saw quite a few alligators and birds, but honestly we probably would have been happy with just the airboat ride, which was really fun. Matt was really good about pointing out wildlife and stopped to answer questions... More

The tour lasted a while, and was incredibly informative. We took the first boat of the day and saw lots of wildlife and enjoyed a part of the day that was not excruciatingly hot. Our tour guide, Dan, looked like he could handle the Australian outback and was very courteous, knowledgeable, and safe. 10/10 would go again.

Thank you to Dan for a wonderful experience! The airboat ride was fun! Dan is so knowledgeable and dedicated to this part of FL nature. He was able to get us up close and personal with many gators while being very respectful of them and their habitat... one was actually friendly (hanging around for us to see) because she is... More
