Skim through the Everglades on an airboat tour from Fort Lauderdale that takes you deep into alligator country. Maneuverable airboats are the perfect way to explore the shallow-water landscape, and since this tour includes an alligator show after the airboat adventure, you’re guaranteed an intimate look at Florida’s native alligators after searching them out in the wild.
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel in Fort Lauderdale, and set out to a site at the edge of the Everglades to start the airboat tour.

Speed across the water in a fan-propelled airboat, and see the wetlands where alligators thrive along with fish, turtles, and wading birds. The captain pauses the tour at strategic spots, so you can watch the alligators as they swim, feed, or sunbathe in a pristine setting and then steer you back to the airboat base camp for the alligator show.

Alligator handlers introduce the alligators, share facts and information about the ancient creatures, and demonstrate alligator wrestling, a longtime tradition in Florida swamps and the Everglades. Following the alligator show, this adventure concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.

Too many airboats and not enough alligators.

This tour was mostly a disappointment. It was somewhat difficult to find out where we were to be picked up, since we made our own arrangements, and not a hotel. After several frustrating phone calls, we discovered our departure hotel. Since we were the first...More
