What You Can Expect On an Airboat Tour Adventure
The Everglades in Florida has become well known for a few different things, and airboat tours is one of them. It's no wonder, when you consider the blast that families and people of all ages seem to have on them. At Everglades Holiday Park, we offer hour long airboat tours that'll leave your whole family grinning from ear to ear.
What You Can Expect from the Boat
Our flat bottom boats propelled by air reach top speeds of 60 miles per hour! Without the hinderance of water or obstacles, it really does feel like they fly. Our boats have passenger compartments that will keep you safe and, for the most part, dry, as you zip through the wetlands. In addition, our boats come equipped with an overhead shelter that will protect you and your family from any elements... rain, extreme sunshine and heat, and swooping wildlife. You can rest assured that 60 miles per hour in a shaded airboat in the heat of a South Florida day feels great!
Where You Can Expect to Go and What You'll See
The Everglades is full of different ecosystems... each boasting unique residential wildlife and plant life. We want to give you the full experience, not just part of one! A full experience means venturing through every possible ecosystem, viewing as much wildlife as possible, and learning all the while a little more about where you are. Our airboat tours will take you through the winding mangrove tunnels that line the swamps and streams; it'll take you through various grasslands and swamps; and it'll take you down rivers – specifically down Alligator Alley, known for its plentiful population of gators. Though wildlife is largely unpredictable, you have very high chances of seeing thousands of different types of animals and species on your tour. Crocodiles and alligators, snakes, birds, and other critters will likely pop up to say “hello” at every corner, and you'll be able to come extremely close while maintaining a safe distance from inside the airboat.
