Our custom dual control air boats are smaller and better than the park boats. We give the copilot a chance to drive the airboat. Our custom airboat rides are very smooth and comfortable just in case you have a bad back or any other injury. It’s like riding a fresh water Harley!Want a completely private airboat tour? *2 HOUR PRIVATE TOUR FOR TWO People(Our most popular Airboat Ride): Fort Lauderdale Location ONLY $375 for 2 people $75 for each additional Adult $35 for each additional child (ages 7-12) Children 6 and under are free!

Randy is totally awesome! We loved the personal tour he gave us and the guys had an awesome time driving and riding the air boat. If it wasn't for the fact that we are located in Oklahoma, we would be back again this year! Thanks for the awesome outing and have a wonderful adventure!

Although our day started out rocky because our boat didn't start, captain randy made it all come together. The day was perfect, i drove the boat, it was awesome to see a great demostration of Captain randy's expertise with an unfamiliar crock so up close! ! Go early in the morning if you can (earlier than the first advertised ride)... More

Gliding through the Everglades with Captain Randy was one of the most amazing tour experiences we’ve had anywhere, period. The Everglades were a fascinating environment, especially when seen from an airboat, and we felt welcomed and well-informed from when we first contacted Captain Randy to when we stepped off the boat at the end of our tour. The boat itself... More

Our trip was amazing. Captain Randy showed up on time and his directions to the launch spot were perfect. We had a great 2 hour ride. We stopped several times where he pointed out different types of wildlife. We saw tons of alligators. He knew just where to look. The kids loved the speed of the boat and when we... More

We took 2 hour private tour and we so happy we went with this company. It was an amazing tour. We saw 60 or 70 alligators. We lost count. Dave was friendly and easy going and explained everything along the way. We covered 36 miles of everglades. Plenty of birds to see and it was just so much fun and... More

We were looking for a private tour into the Everglades and didn't want tourist gimics. We found the best guide with Captain Randy! He was a knowledgeable guide and even gave us a few thrills, gunning the airboat up to about 40mph a few times. We also got a chance to drive the airboat ourselves. The private, 2 hour tour... More

I was a little bit weary of meeting 3.5 mile from the recreation center at a boat ramp? It turned out Captain Randy showed us a great view of the Everglades. Very knowledgeable of the glades and the area. We learned allot. We had a great time. We saw so many gators I lost count. The birds were amazing. Huge... More

Echoing all the other reviewers, this is a "don't miss" activity. We drove from Palm Beach (1+ hr) and will happily make the trip again the next time we are in the area. We bypassed the hotel concierge advice to book with another group, because they did not offer a confirmed reservation or a private boat and the tour was... More

Had a great ride through the Everglades...saw numerous turtles, a wide variety of birds (including a beautiful hawk up close) and a good 30 to 40 alligators ranging in size from 1ft to 8 ft or more - hard to tell! Would recommend Ride the Wind, especially if you don't like to be part of a big group. They take... More

This is a MUST DO if you live or are visiting SoFla! The Everglades are beautiful. Randy took us to the heart of the glades; he showed us the past, present and future of the glades through his expert knowledge of this sensitive ecosystem. I saw a 12 foot gator with a huge mammal (Randy said he thought it was... More
