While visiting south Florida with a friend, we really wanted to take an airboat ride through the Everglades. But we were in Homestead. I found fantastic airboat tour after airboat tour, but they were all on the wrong side of the Park. Finally, I came across Coopertown Airboats. We were a little apprehensive on approach, because as some of the other reviews have said, it looks a little older, but it was an incredible trip. The airboats were loud, as expected, but they had cotton balls for our ears and the boat was packed with other fun tourists. It was such a cool experience to be driving a boat through what looks like a field of grass. Plus, we saw one wild gator and then got to hold a baby gator at the end of the tour! So if you can't get over to all the tours on the other side of the 'glades, go for Coopertown Airboats!
