It was a great true Florida experience! Coopertown Airboats has a very friendly staff. The airboat ride was about 25-30minutes long. It was a very smooth ride and not as loud as I had expected it to be. My girlfriend and I brought our own earplugs just in case but we never used them. They did provide cotton for every ones ears also. We saw a total of 11 alligators and a couple of large birds. The alligators would swim right up to the boat to pose for my pictures. I swear they would even smile for the camera! Our tour guide "Rat" Was very informative about the everglades and all of the natural plants and animals that we saw. He would cut the engine off every time he saw something he wanted to tell us about. He even named all the alligators. After we got back to the dock he brought out a baby alligator for everyone to hold and get their picture with. My girlfriend is from up north and never had experienced anything like it. She had a blast. We also gave them a little tip at the end to show our appreciation and purchased one of their professional framed photos. Since we saved money with the groupon we were happy to do that. I already recommend them to all of my facebook friends and family. I am also a Florida Native and I feel that other than tourists, people who actually live in Florida should really go see your true backyard. Florida has a lot more to offer then just beaches and shopping malls. Kids off all ages would really enjoy seeing the last living dinosaurs as well. Thank you to the staff of Coopertown Airboats for a great day of something different! --- B. Biscoe ---

Reviews

Coopertown Airboat Tours was featured in the Orlando Sentinel. TripAdvisors give it a 4.5-star average.

  • The original air boat tours show visitors alligators in their natural habitat. The rides are smooth, not bumpy or splashy as some would expect, almost as if you were gliding on 12 inches of water. While on the ride you will catch hints of different aromas: sweetness from the basil trees, a soft grass smell from the freshwater river. – Suzette Laboy, Orlando Sentinel

About Coopertown Airboat Tours


Back in 1945, Coopertown Airboat Tours was founded on frog legs. When John Cooper would take his airboat out frogging in the Everglades, observers often asked for rides in the unique machine. The demand became so great that he built a passenger airboat—and today, the company has a fleet of seven. Coopertown itself has a population of only 8, and is a largely wild slice of land on the edge of the Everglades, making the popular airboat tours a main source of traffic. That's been fueled partly by attention from sources such as the Miami Herald, which has recommended it as a top winter attraction.

The airboats that depart from Coopertown head deep into the wetlands, where sawgrass covers the water and gators are plentiful. Guides point out a wide variety of wildlife, ranging from herons and turtles to endangered species such as the snail kite. For a more intimate encounter with nature, they also run private tours, voyaging into areas that are only accessible by smaller airboats. Tours typically culminate by the Coopertown restaurant and gift shop. There, guests can snack on the frog legs that started it all, or sample other swampland delights including gator-tail nuggets and catfish.
