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. Do more and Explore the Everglades.

I live in Miami, and this is a must do for everybody. Today, I was joined by a few friends. This is not a bus type airboat ride. But the kind you see in the movies or on tv shows like CSI Miami. When you come to Miami, enjoy our wild side!

Had the pleasure of one of the semi-private tours.
Since it began to rain a little bit, i were the only one on the boat - and had an amazing 1 hour journey.
Captain Pete knew everything about the area, the animals, etc and occasionally stopped the boat, to show off some hidden places, where the different types of alligators live.

I really enjoyed this trip, and im sure that even if the boat would have been full, i would still have had an amazing trip!

We did an hour and a half with Mo. The whole thing was so well run. Someone was waiting for us at the Shell station when we arrived. He led us to the boat ramp, and we were boarded and ready to go within a minute of parking. Mo was friendly and informative, and he clearly loves his job and the gators. We had such a great time. It was the highlight of our trip!

Skye888,
Perfect review!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Captain Mo says your group is awesome! Every Everglades airboat tour is a little different because the animals we see are out in the wild. All of the birds, gators, turtle, ect... are just as excited and intrigued to see those who come out to visit. Thank you for writing this review and hope you will visit us again during your next trip to Miami.

Firstly the boat trip itself was amazing. The captain who took me and others on a semi-private trip was so knowledgeable and eager to answer questions. I saw an alligator, turtle and plenty of birds. It was brilliant.

Before hand wasn't great. Had to meet at a Shell gas station. Found the lad who I paid then he just wandered off into his car and drove off leaving the rest of us behind guessing what we had to do. I phoned the office to ask and they said we were to follow them to the boat. I had to uber to the gas station but didn't have a car so had to grab a lift off a kind German couple to the boat (which is only 5 minutes away) - so just be aware of this.

As I say the tip itself is great, albeit a bit short (it was an hour) - could have spent the whole afternoon on in, it was so good. It is very hot in the everglades too, so make sure you bring a hat and water.

We booked this trip on the morning of and they were able to accommodate us. The employees were very courteous and friendly. We got started about 30 minutes late due to a mechanical issue with one of their boats so they had to bring in another boat. But that was the only hitch. Captain Willy was excellent. He was knowledgeable and entertaining. We got to see the wildlife that we were expecting and the beautiful landscape of the Everglades.
