Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: 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.

We shared our semi -personal tour with five others and it was just fascinating. Time was almost no issue (we had the last tour of the day and spent almost 15 minutes more in the Everglades). Our experienced and smart captain made every second more than interesting. We watched hundreds of birds and many alligators next to the airboat. Absolutely great time - thanks!

We took the 2hr private tour - great experience, seamless and very professional. Lots of great spots on the tour - heaps of Alligators, and other fauna and flora. Special thanks to Captain Chad who is very passionate about his job, and a great fount of knowledge on the Everglades.

This group has the smaller boats which I was looking for. (The larger boats with big groups of people onboard are like a crowded Disney ride.) Smaller boats provide a more personal feel, higher seats, and can go faster. We'd been on an airboat tour before, but this was an airboat RIDE with a good side helping of a tour. Perfect combo for our family of nature AND adventure lovers! Captain Chad was excellent, as a driver and as a tour guide. Great "off-roading"...kids were a bit nervous at first but ended up loving it and wanted to go again! We met outside the entrance to the Pilot Travel Center then followed them about 1/2 mile down the road to boat launch. Take a jacket and wear pants if it's even remotely cool or not sunny....you go FAST and it does feel chilly! 1 hour tour ended up being about 1 1/4 hours. Hearing protection available but we didn't use it - not as loud as expected. Would highly recommend this tour company to anyone!

We took the one hour semi private tour, which meant we shared the boat with 8 others. The good thing about this company is that they do not use the huge airboats that hold about 30, so it does feel private even when sharing.
It did take us a while to find the meeting place - best thing is to aim for corner of SW 177th and SW 8th Street. Once at the Pilot station, it was easy to find the guys as they had company shirts on. We then followed them to the launch.
We had George as our guide, and as well as finding lots of alligators for us, also pointed out birds, and some of plants etc. This was our first time in the Everglades, but would definatley recommend this trip, and use them on our next visit.

My 12 year old son and I went on a private tour with Captain Armondo and he was very friendly. We probably did not need the private tour as I think the group tour would have been just as good and wold have been cheaper. Some of the other tours give out headphones which would have been nice as the boat was very loud. All that being said, we enjoyed it and are glad we went. We saw about 12 gators and lots of birds. Zipping around the Everglades in an airboat was a lot of fun and we also learned a lot about the wildlife in the area.
