A US Coast Guard–licensed captain makes passengers feel like they're flying through the Everglades grasses in an airboat during a tour that can be customized to their interests. The airboat remains the best way to tour the area without severely damaging its ecosystem. Captains provide detailed narration about the environment and its history, including the daily life of the Native Americans who lived there.
Everglades Nature Tours
As a passenger on Everglades Nature Tours' airboat, you could very well find yourself within reach of a prowling wild cat or a cold, majestic Florida gator—just be sure to keep your hands inside the boat. Led by expert guides and US Coast Guard–certified, 100-ton-rated captains who grew up in South Florida, the company's excursions plunge right into the untamed wilderness of the Florida Everglades and pine forests. Each narrated outing focuses on the natural history of this rich and diverse ecosystem as it illuminates visitors about the area's flora, fauna, and American Indian cultures.
Groups can traverse wooded trails or a 3-mile swath of shallow, grassy water by walking or riding in a propeller-powered airboat or a vintage swamp buggy, pausing only to drink in the scenery or obey the rules of a four-way stop. Each method has its own benefits, but they all allow for custom tours that aren't restricted by a hard and fast time limit. Whatever the tour, ENT's staff is well-versed in the area, as well as first aid and mechanical repairs, so all participants are in safe hands.
