Description

Meet at a central meeting point near your Miami location and join us on this popular Everglades tour. The warm Florida air clings to your skin as you step onto the airboat, a vessel unlike any you've seen before. Its giant fan thrums to life, pushing a wave of air that ruffles your hair. Your guide, a weathered local with a sun-creased smile, expertly maneuvers the airboat across the glassy surface of the Everglades. The sawgrass marshes, stretching out for miles towards the horizon, sway gently in the breeze. Sunlight filters through the lush canopy of cypress trees, dappling the water with light and shadow. As the airboat glides across the water, the rhythmic whoosh of the fan becomes the soundtrack to your adventure. The sawgrass gives way to open water, revealing a watery wilderness teeming with life. Alligators, prehistoric-looking reptiles with eyes like polished obsidian, bask on the edge of mud banks, their leathery bodies glistening in the sun. You might spot one slide with a powerful flick of its tail into the water, leaving a sinuous wake in its path. Keep an eye out for shy otters peeking out from under overhanging vegetation, or the flash of a blue heron's wings as it takes flight from the shallows. The Everglades is a photographer's paradise, offering endless opportunities to capture the unique beauty of this subtropical ecosystem. The airboat slows as your guide steers it towards a hidden mangrove forest. The labyrinthine tangle of roots provides a sanctuary for a kaleidoscope of birdlife. Egrets with snowy white plumage stand statuesque on exposed branches, while anhingas, nicknamed 'water turkeys' for their resemblance to their terrestrial cousins, snake their long necks through the water in search of prey. The rhythmic drumming of a woodpecker might echo through the trees, and the flash of a bright blue butterfly flitting between the leaves adds a touch of magic to the scene. Your guide cuts the engine, allowing you to drift silently through the tranquil heart of the Everglades. The only sounds you hear now are the chirping of crickets and the rustle of leaves in the breeze. In this moment, surrounded by the untamed wilderness, you feel a deep sense of peace and connection to nature. As the tour continues, you might encounter other airboats, their propellers stirring up the water, but more often than not, you'll find yourself alone amidst the vastness of the Everglades. The airboat tour isn't just a sightseeing adventure; it's a journey into a world unlike any other. It's a chance to witness the Everglades' incredible biodiversity firsthand and to appreciate the delicate balance of this unique ecosystem. As you return to the dock, the everglades sun dipping towards the horizon, you'll carry with you a newfound appreciation for the natural world and the memories of an unforgettable adventure.

Important Information

  • Please note that while our boat ranger will make every effort to look out for alligators in the wild, the Everglades are NOT a zoo with guaranteed animal appearances. Animal appearances depend on various factors such as weather, time of year, breeding season, etc. Any animals that you see in captivity at the sanctuary are injured or orphaned rescue animals that would otherwise not survive in the wild. Therefore they are kept in the sanctuary. As per US government regulations these animals are taken care of in Florida wide sanctuaries to educate the public. The welfare of the animals is properly controlled and regulated by the State of Florida.
