Airboat Ride

The airboat is an iconic mode of transportation that rose in popularity in the swamps and marshes of the Everglades in the 1920's. The flat-bottomed boat is propelled by either an aircraft engine or more commonly an automobile engine and can slide across shallow water, mud and, for short distances, dry ground. Airboats are perfectly suited for the shallow waters of the Everglades. The two tours are distinctly different and equally amazing.

Captain Bob's Excellent Adventure from Fort Myers - Upon arrival at our destination, you will board a small airboat that will navigate the headwaters of the Western Everglades on a lake filled with more alligators per acre than anywhere in Florida! During this 60-minute airboat ride you might see a wide variety of unique birds including Roseate Spoonbills, Great Egrets, Green Herons, Purple Gallinules, Bald Eagles and many more.

Captain Bob's Excellent Adventure from Fort Lauderdale - You'll enjoy the most authentic airboat ride in the Eastern Everglades during this tour. Single or twin-prop airboats will slide you through Pond Apple sloughs, over sawgrass prairies and out to the tree islands that dot the landscape on the "River of Grass". Watch for alligators, turtles and a variety of birds including the Endangered Wood Stork and Snail Kite.
