See Florida the way it used to be…from an airboat! Loxahatchee Everglades Tours is fun, exciting and educational! Take an airboat tour and see all the wonders of nature in their natural state! Glide over a “river of grass” and along the way enjoy the flora (water lilies, sawgrass and cattails to name a few) and fauna (some might expect to see turtles, snakes, birds and alligators)! We do not cage or pen any animals and we do not feed them!enjoy these wonders in their natural habitat!

Convenient location off route 441 in Parkland. Expensive for a family but well run company. Excellent local guide and informative. We saw alligators and local birds and turtles. Recommend to take this ride early in day to see wildlife.

When we arrived the trailer attendant informed us that the temperature was too high for them to run a tour and they were finished for the day. This was at 1 pm. The recorded message stated that they were running trips until 3 pm, they only other number was for private trips. We saw the previous trip come back in... More

My wife and I took the 50 minute tour today. Our guide was Stuart, who at first glance looked like a character out of WWE, but turned out to be an extremely knowledgable and articulate guide, who loves the everglades and its ecosystem. We had a great time and would definitely recommend the trip.

Great trip with Wild Lyle. Verrrry interesting guide with intimate knowledge of the history. More like a teacher than a tour guide and one of a vanishing kind.

Took the 50 minute ride which was reasonably priced. Airboat captain was very knowledgeable about the local wildlife and vegetation. He would stop the boat periodically to explain and show the passengers a particular animal or plant species. He informed us about how the Everglades are ever changing and how humans are impacting its survival. Would highly recommend this particular... More

My Norwegian cousins wanted to see some alligators while visiting Florida so we decided to take an air boat of the glades. The boat was comfortable and our guide was very knowledgeable about the environment. Unfortunately, it was a cloudy day and the gators tend to stay underwater so it was a tedious task to see/find them, although we were... More

Stewart was our tour guide. Was a little windy so we were told to set expectations low. We were all happy to see about 8 gators. Lots of other wildlife. Stopped for discussion. Everyone on boat seemed to enjoy the tour very much. Definitely recommend for those content w small self guided museum and airboat tour and not looking for... More
