What will we see on the boat ride?

During your guided tour of The Everglades, our experienced airboat captains are going to try their best to find wildlife such as alligators, birds, fish, and turtles to show you. You will also hear stories about the Everglades ecosystem and even some history of The Everglades.

How many people are on each boat?

Approximately 15-25 guests board each boat ride. However in our fleet of 20+ airboats we have boats that can seat from 3-35 passengers. If you are interested in booking a group or Private Adventure let us know.

What is the advantage of a Private Adventure?

Being on a smaller boat earns you the opportunity to get deeper into the Everglades, instead of larger boats, where our larger general admission tour many not be able to venture. With a Private Adventure, you can even spend up to two hours exploring The Everglades with your captain.

What's the youngest age that can go on the boat?

Any age child can enjoy an airboat ride. We advise parents that our boats are very noisy and we provide ear protection for everyone riding. Some children are more sensitive to loud noise than others. Earplugs are available on site and are recommended. All children ages 6 and under must wear a life jacket which we will provide. Guest over the age of 6 may also obtain and wear a life jacket if they wish. Children of all ages can ride on our airboats, it is a safe and smooth enjoyable ride. Children ages 3 and under will be no charge and we will provide them a life jacket and earplugs for the airboat tour. We have young children enjoy the rides every day here at the park. We offer a parent swap program also if you want to stay back with the baby and allow a partner to go and when they return we will put you on the next boat so they can wait back.
