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)!

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

We were staying in the Boca Raton area and wanted an air boat ride that was close. We found Loxahatchee Tours from a brochure in the hotel. It was about a 15-20 minute ride there. I was a little worried about getting on the tour because they do not take reservations, it is first come, first served. We arrived about... More

This Everglades adventure was excellent. Fun ride on an air boat with a knowledgeable and experienced guide, "Wild Lyle" really knows his stuff. Gators, birds, and plants - he explained them all - shedding light on the balance between man and nature in this delicate ecosystem. Great trip.

Went here in the slow month the captain was a really cool guy. We got our own boat. He took us way into the swamp, the tour lasted for about 50 mins. The water in the swamp was high so it was unlikely to see a alligator but the min we started moving one was right there. Altogether we saw... More

Great weather! First "cool front" of the year. Lots of Gators too see. Captain Dan is great and very informative. The ride on the airboat is very smooth and it is amazing to skim accross the top of the water no matter how shallow it may be. It is hard to get the smile off of your face as you... More

Wanted something different to do on our vacation. Riding an airboat through the Everglades sounded like fun. IT SURE WAS!!! From the time we got on the boat Dan, our driver, had lots to tell and show us. We rode around and found alligators, birds of all kinds and lots of high grass to zoom over, It was one hour... More

First time on an Airboat ride. Took a private tour with our friends and had "Wild Kyle" as the tour guide. He is extremely knowledgeable about the everglades and surrounding eco system. Really a fun experience and would recommend it to everyone. I have seen photos, however it is very different when you are on the boat.

So much fun! Very awesome staff, helpful, intelligent, very personal! We went for our honeymoon and had an absolute blast. We saw 4 gators, birds, fish, the staff taught us all about the plants and the history of the Everglades. Much better than the gator boy tour!! 1000X better (:
