Everglades Airboat Rides and Tours

Everglades Airboat Rides and Tours

Touring the Everglades by airboat is one of the best ways to see the largest subtropical wilderness in the US. Half-day tours and full-day trips combining other nearby sites are available from several cities in south Florida. Here's what to know.

Highlights

  • You’ll spot wildlife such as alligators, fish, turtles, manatees, dolphins, and wading birds from the airboat.

  • Choose a tour that allows for time to watch manatees at play in Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park and then observe a manatee-feeding session.

  • It’s possible to get out of the boat and stroll along a jungle walking trail.

  • Some tours offer the chance to to learn about alligators during a live show and demonstration.

  • Combine an airboat safari with a visit to the Kennedy Space Center and tour NASA’s launch headquarters.

  • Kick off a day-long tour with a tour of Miami and cruise on Biscayne Bay before heading to the Everglades for your airboat safari.

Things to Know

  • Wear insect repellent and plenty of sunscreen. The mosquitoes tend to stay away while the boat’s moving, but they will find you when it stops.

  • Airboats sit low in the water, so it's possible that you may get wet—dress accordingly.

  • Depending on the tour, hotel pickup and drop-off may be available for Miami, Miami Beach, Naples, Orlando, Fort Myers, or Fort Lauderdale. Confirm departure points before booking.

  • Half-day tours typically run two to six hours, while full-day tours last from nine to 12 hours.
