Best place to ride in airboat and experience Everglades

We Re staying in key largo thru June 15 2013. We went on a real tourist air boat ride at an alligator farm which was fun but this time I really want to see the man groves, gators and or crocs...maybe even a manatee. Is such a tour even possible? We have a group of 9 people....one of them who is 4 but adventurous ..heck he snorkels an hour off a catamaran this morning...and two 12 year old boys. Just trying to see the best and most we can while down here! Even heard of a night time paddle board trip? Any suggestions ? Would love feedback ASAP....we are here now and don't want to miss out! Thanks!

There's the backcountry boat trip out of Flamingo. It's a slow tour along a canal, though it does go fast across a lake. Good for wildlife spotting;

There's Airboat USA who used to meet up at a gas station (Krome and 41) but now meet at a BBQ on US41.

The Everglades are likely to be buggy, so be prepared for that.

Get an early start and head out toward the Anhinga Trail at Everglades National Park. There you will find your gators. From there head toward Flamingo, if you're lucky you will spot some crocs. Flamingo offer's tours as g0aks mentions, just keep in mind there deposit fee's can be very high. Enjoy!
