Overview

Our company does not run the "big boats" or the "jet boats" we run only the small six passenger airboats. Your captian will take you through both the unique grassland praries and winding mangrove tunnels on your tour into this national treasure we call the Florida Everglades.

If you want to see more than swampy grasslands, this tour takes you through the mangroves - awesome!! Nice staff. Small boats hold 6 people max. If you arrive early, great place next door to eat

They do accommodate for young children. I would call ahead and let them know. I asked that question when we were on the tour; they just don't go as fast down the mangroves and they don't do the fast turns. But, it is fun... More
