Overview

Explore the everglades on a small airboat to see the wonders & beauty that it offers. Airboat in everglades, miami airboat rides, miami airboat tours, miami beach attractions, are here. Ride and Slide threw sawgrass, mangroves, apple pond trees and less than 6 inches of water. Located in Northern America, the Everglades of Florida is home to some of the world's most diverse animals and vegetation. The wetlands boast of shallow water bodies, great habitat and awesome scenery that helps you create memories. Having a tropical climate further aids the tourists in their endeavors. with the extent of water that is not easily navigable, a trip down the river of grass is quite impossible without the help of local guides and machines. We operate rain or shine Everglades operating locations may vary due to weather and animal sightings.

A lovely experience to mark off our places visited . But it is all in the luck of the draw . We didn't see any wildlife or gators or crocs other than those in captivity but to be fair these are wild animals in there...More

We had a wonderful adventure with Moe. He was super informative! Our second guide, Pablo, was very helpful with entertaining our teenagers also. We were able to see multiple American Alligators including Jumper and one of his girlfriends. Thanks Moe for a great ride!!!

Very well organised trip. We got picked up directly from our apartment and driven to the location of the airboats. We took the 1.5 hour long boat tour during which we’ve seen loads of alligators. The guide was very informative and friendly.
