Everglades Airboat Private Nature and History Tour
  • Everglades Airboat Private Nature and History Tour

    Sit back and hold on tight for a private airboat tour through the Everglades! Choose from a 1-hour, 1.5-hour, or 2-hour ride exploring the "River of Grass". Your guide will be sure to point out wildlife such as birds and reptiles that call this area their home as well as talk about the history, flora and diverse eco-system that lies beneath.

    You'll feel like you’re flying through the grass on this private airboat ride of the Everglades. This is the best way to explore the "River of Grass" without causing severe damage to the ecosystem. The Florida Everglades is undisturbed nature that dates back 15,000 years and has breath taking views which span further than the Iguazu Falls. The Everglades vastly preserved ecosystem is 1.5 million acres made up of grasslands and hardwood hammocks.

    This smooth sliding ride will be the highlight of your trip. Your guide will customize the tour to the interest of your party in addition to telling you remarkable stories and history of the park. You will see beautiful flowers, trees and animal life found no where else in the world. Just outside of Miami lies an uncultivated home of the cold sharp toothed Florida Alligator, which welcomes everyone to their home. So step out of the sand and concrete of Miami and let’s ride and slide in the River of Grass together.

      This was great, our guide knew his stuff. Explained alot and knew where to see wildlife. Only wish I had packed a heavier jacket, just did not know that 10 days after we left North Carolina it was going to be 50 deg and windy in Miami.

      Brilliant experience, Chad knows his stuff and clearly loves what he does. Seen a cple of alligators, would have been nice to see a few more but, these kind of trips are always down to your luck on the day! Excellent fun though, Recommended.

      A trip to the real everglades was on my wife's bucket list, so I'm so pleased this lived up to her expectations! This tour company have small boats, so you are not sharing with a large number of tourists perhaps 5-6 max. My wife and I were the only ones on this trip, so we had time to ask loads of questions. Our guide Chad was definitely a swamp-monster' he knew so much about the Everglades and it's creatures, and his love and passion for the area was really obvious, which added to the great trip.
      It was mating season for the Alligators when we were there, and they were in full cry - we had no idea they did that! Worth every penny!

      Warning: Traffic issues can almost double your predicted travel time to the tour start - leave plenty of time.

      This was a brilliant excursion. Riding in an airboat has been on my bucket list for years. Friendly staff, great communications and we saw gators and lots of birdlife. The pilot was knowledgeable in the history and plants of the everglades too. Totally a worthwhile tour.

      My daughter, granddaughter 4 years old and I took this trip on a airport layover waiting to get on a cruise ship on 02/17/2017. Captain Chad was our driver and the trip was amazing. We saw alligators even a nest of babies up close, learned a lot about the everglades eco-system and uses of various plants. We also saw a lot of waterfowl and turtles. Captain Chad was extremely patient with my granddaughter who had a million questions and he even gave her an alligator tooth when we were finished. The ride was fun, entertaining and educational. I would highly recommend it to anyone of any age.

      Booking went smoothly. It was easy to find the location of the meet.

      The tour was amazing! The captain spent time explaining the nature of everglades, the history, nothing felt rushed.

      We had an amazing time and we highly recommend!

      We absolutely loved this. Our tour guide, Ozzie, was great and knew the wildlife and the area quite well. We saw several different birds and even some little ones in nests! We had a beer with the new guy which was everything we hoped it would be meeting an alligator for the first time!! Would definitely recommend them for your private tour. Was a blast!!

      Outstanding Everglades tour! Learned A LOT from Capt. Chad Johnson in the midst of a gorgeous, calm, quiet environment. That said, we also LOVED the speedy darts around too! Saw alligators, the beautiful environment, and even a variety of homes! Who knew? The company was super accommodating, going above and beyond to make the trip work for a couple in Miami with no car. It was a family affair and we loved everyone!

      While I thought booking this tour through Viator was not a customer friendly experience, once we were on the tour, it was wonderful. Ozzie was a great guide!

      Captain Ozzie was AMAZING. He has a lot of knowledge and respect for the Everglades and educated us on plants, flowers, trees and animals, along with history. This was so much fun, plus we got to see an Alligator. I loved this tour- my favorite on our trip. I can very highly recommend it. We had the private tour so there were just 2 of us. Loved it.

      We really enjoyed our 1.5 hr private boat tour. The only reason I didn't grade it as 5 stars is because we hardly saw any animals. We did see 2-3 small alligators and 1 bird. But our guide was pleasant and knowledgeable and the boat was comfortable.

      Chad was very knowledgable and professional. Got a full hour's worth even though the tour started late. He did his best to locate wildlife even though the time of year was not optimal for photo opportunities. The private tour is definitely the way to go.

      Loved this tour. Not at all touristy or commercial. Was exactly what we were looking for, the best part was that there was no other boats around, just us. Perfect! Thank you!
