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)!

My husband and I have taken this tour 17 times and look forward to many more trips to Loxahatchee. Lyle, the owner, is unbelievably knowledgeable about the Everglades as is Dan, another guide. Tours are roughly an hour long. Even when alligator sightings are minimal or nonexistent (as is possible when it's really hot) the guides make this a memorable... More

Our family loved it. My husband, myself and two boys (ages 7&9) really enjoyed the tour. We arrived early like they said, but a little too early (8:15am), but they were so nice and welcoming. They opened up the little tiny museum and started the video for us to watch while we waited. The tour started promptly just after 9:00am.... More

It was awesome! We saw 2 alligators, birds and turtles. They provided lots of information about the Everglades. It's definitely must do!

I've lived in FL 16 years and never did this until some friends came into town early July.So I was sort of looking forward to it. Not sure what I was really expecting --- maybe I expected more information, or the options to actually see some of the things one might see in the Everglade marshes? I thought it would... More

We were really looking forward to this experience, but left feeling very let down. The company did not honor our discount flyer that we got at the hotel. The building was a bit run down, no refreshments, or even vending machines. The tour guide drove extremely slow and kept stopping to talk. There is no shade on the boat, so... More

We were able to enjoy a private tour with Dean, who took us on an awesome tour of the area. We got to chase an alligator for a bit as well as see herons and egrets. He let us know that a lot of the wildlife was chilling out because it so hot, so try to get there early in... More

Fantastic experience with Wild Lyle! We had a blast exploring the Everglades on the airboat and seeing this wonderful UNESCO site up close. I definately give it my most positive endorsement. I'll do it again next time I'm in the area. Two thumbs up!!!

Very interesting tour. Great explanations from Captn Dean. A very good way to see the Everglades and maybe kill a couple of myths about that well known ecosystem.
