Experiencing a Florida Everglades Airboat Ride
Whenever you consider visiting the Everglades, you’ll hear about Everglades airboat rides. These wonderful rides are tours through the wetlands in which you can encounter a ton of different species of plants and animals along the way. Airboats are modified boats that keep marine life safe by using above water propulsion systems. Airboats glide across the top of water at speeds reaching up to 60 mph, all the while keeping riders completely safe. Children and adults of all ages can feel comfortable and at ease while gliding across the River of Grass.

You and your friends and family can enjoy the airboat tours together so nobody misses out on anything – so when your time for an airboat adventure comes, make sure to seek out the best airboat rides in the Everglades at Everglades Holiday Park!
