The airboat was discovered accidentally when a time-strapped gondolier was forced to blow-dry his hair during his morning commute. Enjoy a windswept hairstyle with today’s Groupon: for $27, you get an Everglades airboat ride and wildlife show from Half Price Tour Tickets (a $55 value).
Half Price Tour Tickets unites explorers with an array of travel experiences including city tours, dolphin encounters, and Everglades adventures. Following a scenic 30-minute drive from Miami to Everglades National Park, up to six passengers accompany professional fan captains on a 30-minute airboat ride through several miles of subtropic wetlands. Because of the boat's smaller size, visitors can navigate narrow and elusive areas to observe exotic and endangered animals including bald eagles, wild pigs, 14-foot-long alligators, and 1970s game-show hosts. After returning to dry land, guests attend a 60-minute live wildlife show, absorbing interesting facts on alligators and other species in the national park and viewing resident macaws, turtles, peacocks, and native snakes. A shuttle transports guests to and from the park, with interesting narration from the guides and accompanying puppet shows from the driver.
