A few minutes into the ride the boat broke down and we waited 15 min for another boat,then that boat went 2 MILES AN HOUR and it took 1 hour and 40 min it's supposed to take 40 min so it wasn't your typical air...More
The tour was ok, I liked it, but I found extremely disturbing that they are keeping a baby alligator incaged in a dark small box, tied up, and using it for heartless irresponsible tourists to take photos with ! and saying he likes it...I wanted...More
We drove up from Key Largo area as Cooperstown Airboats supposedly is the best in Florida. Thank goodness we had groupon prices, as it was very chaotic and not clear when to and who boards the boats first. We walked through the ‘wildlife area which...More
I absolutely recommend Coopertown Airboats! The staff is super friendly and make sure you have a great time. I loved gliding through the Everglades exploring nature at its finest! I put together a Youtube video at "thewrightsights" showing my experience. Check it out and be...More
Did a little research online finding a good deal that would accommodate a young family and came across Coopertowns airboat tours. The wait time in the heat was tough on our 3 grandaughters, ages 6,4, &1. Once we got past the disorganization and lack of...More
I had found them online. Very informative tour. You can hold a snake and feed the turtles there. After the tour you can take a picture with a 2 year a old alligator. Nice time. I spend approximately an hour there
I looked through the websites of the 3 NPS approved air boat tour providers and thought this looked the most reasonable. The tour itself was quite nice, reasonably priced, and I got to see a lot of wildlife. Before you get to the tour though...More

Everglades and Robert is Here(?) from Loews (5 Replies)
My husband and I will be coming to SB this summer, staying at the Loews. The last time we were there (two years ago)we went to Coopertown Airboats in the Everglades. This place had very good frog legs in their restaurant. My husband wants to go again but would like to go to a different airboat/everglades park? Could you give me so advice on this. I think it took us about an hour from our hotel. Also, I've been told to stop at this Robert is Here fruit/veg stand on the way to the...More

Thanks AG for the info. We will have a car while we're in SB and from the posts I've seen, we'll probably go to Coopertown. I was only wondering if Robert is Here was on the way. It is suppose to be a good fruit, etc. stand. Thanks again.Amy

Hi Can anyone tell me how far it is to Coopertown Airboats from the Port of Miami, and the best way to get there by public transport or taxi.If possible how much would a taxi fare cost. Also with the short $22 airboat ride do you get to go to the sea grass beds or not, the private one hour tour for 4 is too expensive as there are just 2 of us.. Regards Meg

As far as I know there is no public bus to that area. A taxi would be very expensive. I would look into a guided bus tour of the Everglades that includes an airboat ride. Renting a car is another option. Not sure what you mean about the sea grass. I have taken the Coopertown tour, and it includes going over large areas of grass as well as through mangroves, but it is all fresh water, and many miles from the sea.
