What is an Airboat Ride and How Does It Work? - Everglades Holiday Park

Airboats have quickly become the most popular way for nature enthusiasts and thrill seekers to cruise around the Everglades and explore the ecosystems. Airboats are flat bottomed vessels that are propelled by giant fans instead of motors. When the propeller is working, it pushes air behind the boat, which pushes the boat forward. There are no operating parts beneath the waterline, which is what sets the airboat apart from other boats. Due to the lack of a motor, the boat can quickly glide across the surface of the water; something that no other boats can do. Airboats are perfect for low water and swamplands. They are the fastest, most efficient way to get around the 1.5 million acres of various terrains in the Florida Everglades.

When you take an airboat tour with Everglades Holiday Park, you will fly across the surface of the water to quickly explore different habitats within the subtropical wilderness. Journey deep into the Everglades on a narrated airboat tour that departs every 20 minutes and lasts for 60 minutes. These tours are exciting and safe for people of all ages, including young children. You will travel through tunnels of mangroves and animal sanctuaries, and your captain will stop to show you endangered species and exotic wildlife. You are likely to run into alligators, eagles, ducks, turkeys, and big fish. Get your adventure started by booking an airboat tour with the professionals at Everglades Holiday Park.
