Convenient timing of airboat rides, reasonable price. Very interesting. I was also nice to get a couple of photos for free. You just don't see anything for free anymore so that was a nice touch. Chaos, the airboat captain is Awesome.

Thank you for the awesome review. The Everglades is a beautiful place, but we understand that it could be scary if you ventured alone out here... We hope you were able to make some awesome memories at the park. Visit us again sometime soon.

No, I have back issues and was fine. There are parts where they pick up speed and go fast, but it’s pretty gentle for the most part.
