As your airboat skims across the water and grass, you can expect to see many of our native and migratory birds, alligators and fish. The wildlife can pop up anywhere during your airboat tour, and usually does. No other animal in the everglades represents the area’s biological diversity and wealth better than the birds. Almost 350 species of birds, both migratory and tropical, have been recorded. More than 50 kinds of reptiles and nearly 20 types of salamanders, frogs and toads live in the wetlands along with hundreds of species of fish. You will also have a chance to see privately owned camps nestled deep in the everglades that have been there since the mid 1950’s. So call now and make an appointment for your own private airboat tour and see the Florida Everglades like a native, up close. You can even drive the boat! We are one of the few companies to offer dual steering, giving everyone the opportunity to drive. Enjoy the beauty, serenity, and wildlife where only an airboat can take you.
The Florida Everglades
The Florida Everglades, in the southern part of Florida, is number 4 on the list of most important wetlands in the world. The Florida Everglades consist of a shallow sheet of fresh water that slowly runs over the lowlands and through billions of blades of sawgrass. Before the natural flow of the everglades was changed by man, to provide housing and land development for Florida residents, it ran 50 miles wide and 120 miles long, running from Lake Okeechobee in the north on to Florida Bay in the south. The best way to see these wetlands is to take one of our airboat tours of the Florida Everglades. Taking an airboat ride is an exciting experience you won’t soon forget.
