About Us

Airboat Locations

Miami airboat   rides and tours.

air-boat: Pronunciation[air-boht] – a small open boat having a very shallow draft and driven by a caged airplane propeller mounted above the rear transom, capable of traveling at relatively high speeds through shallow water, swamps, etc.

There’s no better way to see the Florida Everglades than by taking an airboat ride. Safe, exhilarating, and fun for all the family, an airboat tour brings you face-to-face with some of the most beautiful Everglades scenery to be found in Miami Florida, as well as colorful wildlife. An airboat ride also gives you the opportunity to come face to face with Florida’s most famous residents – the Florida Alligator for which the state is justly famous.

The Everglades are one of America’s last great wildernesses – a fascinating and diverse ecosystem that remains surprisingly unspoiled. Despite the best efforts of Man to encroach on their territory, the Everglades are home to some of the most unusual and exotic bird and animal life to be found anywhere in North America, and there’s no better way to see them than on an airboat ride with Miami Airboat Tours.

Birdlife in the Everglades is particularly rich and diverse, from herons and egrets to cranes and ospreys. But it’s perhaps for the Florida gators that the Everglades are best known, and an airboat tour won’t disappoint you on this score. Our airboat rides are conducted by experienced captains who grew up in the Everglades, so they know just where to take you to see the best that Everglades’ natural habitat has to offer.

Our airboat rides are comfortable and exciting, and the boats themselves are made to the highest standards. An airboat tour is really a great way to see the wetlands of the Everglades. Indeed, after the alligators themselves, airboats are probably one of Florida’s most famous sights! But an airboat tour isn’t just a thrill ride – our mission is also one of education and conservation. On a Miami Airboat Tour, you’ll learn about the fragile and unique ecosystem that sustains the wildlife of the Everglades, and hopefully come away with a renewed sense of how precious these wetlands are to our country’s ecology. Miami Airboat Tours is committed to protecting the environment of the Everglades, and so our airboat rides keep to designated waterways and operate at all times with safety in mind – the safety not just of our guests but also of the residents of these ancient wetlands and rivers.

Miami Airboat Tours operates out of the west Miami area, our location is easily accessible depending on your location in south Florida, we have ample parking please call us for detailed directions. (305) 280-4812

Airboat safety is one of our top concerns, and we’re glad to be able to assure you that airboat rides are absolutely safe for all members of the family. Our airboats are inspected daily and conform to all applicable safety statutes. In addition, we take pains to ensure that all boats are equipped with first aid kits, flotation devices, and communications systems, so in the unlikely event of any mishap, there would be no cause for concern.

All of our captains have USCG certification and are local to the Everglades, so they know these complex waterways like the back of their hands, and you couldn’t be in better ones.

You’ll find that an airboat tour is cheaper than you think – and offers unbeatable value for money for thrill-seekers looking for an exciting way to see the Everglades and a bit of local wildlife. Children between 6 and 12 ride half price, and children under 6 ride for free – so it’s a great way to organize a family outing, as well. In fact, kids of all ages are sure to be enthralled by the airboat ride! You’ll find that an airboat ride with Miami Airboat Tours is something you’ll never forget.

Customer reviews.

Such a blast! We saw dozens of alligators on the trip as well as other wildlife! The boat ride was fun and smooth! Our boat captain and guide Taylor was awesome! He was personable and very knowledgeable! He made our experience special! Everyone had a blast! I would highly recommend this company! Thanks for the awesome man Experience!.

I met the tour guide driver today and it feels like i’ve known him for years. His name is Taylor and is probably one of the most friendliest people I have ever met. I was worried it was going to be an awkward and quiet boat ride the whole tour, but it was an amazing experience! 11/10 would do again!!!.

We went out with Taylor on Saturday morning; my brother and nephew visiting me from California • We’ve never been on an airboat and what an incredible experience!!! Taylor couldn’t have been more informative, friendly, professional and just an awesome guide!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this tour, just an incredible experience! I would love to do it again!! Thank you Taylor!

Had a fantastic time experiencing all of the wildlife within the habitat...Taylor took the time to share several stories involving his many experiences within the Everglades.....5 plus stars .....A definite must...WE WILL BE BACK.....

Excellent tour. We were a group of 7 and all enjoy it. The reservation and organization was impecable. The tour guide was excellent and fun. I fully recommend Everglades boat tour.

Captain Taylor was the best guide I ever had! He was so personable and fun and did an excellent job of explaining all the beautiful intricacies of what makes the Everglades so great! I would highly recommend him over any of the other tour guides. Plus they have a new boat with cool green gator coverings that made for a smooth safe ride.

First time in Miami and first time to the glades and it was beyond what we expected! Taylor was incredibly knowledgeable about the area due to him growing up and being in the glades since a young child. We got up and close with gators. My son (10) had an unbelievable time. Definitely would recommend taking private tours over anything. We will be back and will definitely take another tour with Taylor!

We had such a great time on this airboat ride! From the get-go Jodi was so kind and responsive on the phone, answering all our questions and just generally being very friendly. We wanted to do a sunrise tour, which she said they didn't normally do, but she checked and accommodated us as she thought it would be an interesting experience as well. It turned out to be really, really nice. We met up with Taylor, who was also very kind and friendly. He didn't rush the experience at all and was very knowledgeable about the area, wildlife and plant life. They are a family owned business and local to the Everglades, so if you want a great experience...go with them!

Had a great 1hr tour with Taylor. This was the only company that managed to sqeeze us in on short notice. It was easy to find the departure point. Taylor is very knowledgable about the history and ecology of the everglades. Learned a lot and saw a few gatoors and birds. Because our tour was pretty late in the day, we saw a wonderful sunset. I would definitly recommend everglades airboat tours to anyone. They are the best.

Captain Daniel is the best

He's absolutely passionate about the River of Grass aka the Everglades and it shows in how he communicates and passes on his knowledge.

Memorable trip across the Everglades.

Very easy to arrange via the website and clear communications.

10/10 would do it again.

It was definitely a highlight of my family's vacation to southern Florida. 10/10 would do it again. We saw so much wildlife, and our guide shared a ton of information about the Everglades.

Loved this adventure! This was scheduled to be our first activity upon arriving in Florida and I chose it because it's a fairly short drive from the Miami Airport.

Highly recommend. We took the one-hour private tour, and it was excellent. We saw several alligators, and in talking to Captain Jack, it was clear the Everglades are his passion.

After a quick safety briefing we spent the full time exploring. Our guide was clearly passionate about ecology, conservation and his awesome Job in nature. While we would recommend this experience to anyone we have noticed that our guide was a keen fisherman as well, so if you are interested in fishing ask for Chris. (Hope I got the name right) ; ). I’m sure he will be a well of knowledge.

This was the first time we used this company, ... read more we saw 5 gators- it was chilly so there wasn't a lot of animals out (birds, turtles, fish). Our guests enjoyed themselves. The only comment I have is that our time was around 45 minutes vs 1 hour (I think they were running behind?) All in all, this is one of the better companies to use.

Our guide Jack made the tour amazing. Super knowledgeable, interesting and fun! The airboat was virtually brand new and smooth on the water. Loads of room for our family ... read more of 5. We should have put on an extra layer as the wind chill when you zoom out into the glades was chilly, and we recommend taking a pair of shades to protect your eyes from the wind. We were provided ear defenders which as great as the air boat is noisy when it gets up to speed! We saw six alligators on the trip (they got very close!) a few birds and one or two fish. Not as much wildlife as I was expecting but then the tour is on the edge of the glades, so I suppose you won't see everything in one place. Would recommend!

The Top Everglades Airboat & Swamp Tours

Explore Florida's marshes and see lots of wildlife on an Everglades airboat tour.

If you're planning a trip to Miami or Fort Lauderdale, Florida , visiting Everglades National Park should be on your to-do list. The South Florida national park is known for its expansive beauty, as well as its varied population of wildlife that includes everything from bobcats to alligators.

To see all the Everglades has to offer, sign up for a guided tour. U.S. News consulted both traveler sentiment and expert opinion to identify the top Everglades tours. Before you go, make sure you read through the National Park Service's Wildlife Viewing Ethics to keep both yourself and the animals safe during your time in the park. When choosing the best Everglades tours, we avoided recommending operators that promote wildlife shows or encourage feeding or holding the animals for photo ops.

Visitors should plan to pay a fee to enter the park, as it may not be included in the price of the tour ticket. You should also keep in mind that many of these tour operators are located at least 30 miles west of Miami and Fort Lauderdale. Tours that run on airboats – open-air vessels with huge fans at the back that propel the boat – can be very loud. Companies will generally offer ear protection, but if you or your companions are sensitive to loud noises, contact the tour provider to discuss options before you book.

Frequently Asked Questions

Like any other form of transportation, riding an airboat may come with some risks. To stay safe on your Everglades airboat tour, be sure to choose a company run by experienced, professional boaters (most of which undergo special training and are approved by the U.S. Coast Guard) and adhere to all rules set forth by your guide. Parents should keep a close eye on children and be sure they are properly fitted for their life jackets, and all passengers should protect against the heat by wearing sunscreen and staying hydrated. Commercial airboats typically do not exceed speeds of 30 to 40 mph to ensure a safe, smooth ride, and most operators will reschedule your tour in the event of lightning or other inclement weather. Tour companies will also generally provide riders with proper ear protection, as the boats are quite loud.

Typically, passengers will feel the most comfortable in lightweight, sleeveless clothing and shorts while on an Everglades airboat tour. If you are taking a wintertime tour, keep an eye on the weather – pants and long sleeves may be a better option, but you likely won't need a heavy jacket. Be sure to bring sunglasses, sunscreen and water to protect yourself from the effects of the sun; you may also want a hat to provide further shade and keep hair in place. Passengers with long hair are advised to wear it in a ponytail or bun to keep it from becoming knotted in the wind. Tourgoers may also wish to apply some bug spray prior to embarking on their adventure.

Little Havana

Recommended by Lavina of ContinentHop.com

What makes Miami perfect to visit isn't just the perfect weather or the beautiful beaches but the fact that here you'll find people of many cultures, thus making it a destination where you'll find various cuisines and many things to do.

Little Havana, located in Miami, is one such example. You'll find numerous restaurants here serving authentic Cuban fare. You'll also find many little workshops where people hand-roll authentic cigars, and you can watch them while they do so! Purchasing a few is highly recommended if you like smoking! Centered around Calle Ocho (Southwest Eighth Street), you'll also find rum bars, art galleries, and music centers here.

However, my favorite pastime in Little Havana was watching the local elders play dominoes at Maximo Gomez Park. While they invite watchers to join them, it is fun to watch them play.

If hungry after all the excitement, an authentic Cuban sandwich made with roast pork, ham, cheese, pickles, and mustard is highly recommended from any of the delis in the area. Afterward, head to Azucar Ice Cream Company to taste some of the freshest Ice cream made from tropical fruits in the area. Regardless of whether you spend a day or 2 days in Miami , visit Little Havana!

Kayaking with Manatees

Recommended by Vicky of BuddyTheTravelingMonkey.com

One of the top things to do in Miami during your vacation is kayaking with manatees on Virginia Key . Virginia Key is a small island just off of Miami; it takes about 15 minutes to get there from Downtown Miami. On the island, Virginia Key Outdoor Center (VKOC) offers kayak rentals and can take you on fun tours around the island.

The best place to see manatees on Virginia Key is by the lagoon where you launch your kayaks. They love the warm water and seagrass there so you can see them year-round. They move slowly but come up for air, so if you are patient, you’ll see their noses and hear a puff of air. It’s important to remember not to disturb them, though. Don’t paddle too close to them; try not to make noise or splash your paddle.

You can also kayak out of the lagoon and around the island's north side. From there, you’ll see some incredible views of the Miami skyline. After kayaking, you can also mountain biking on Virginia Key. VKOC also rents bikes, and the Virginia Key Bicycle Club built and maintained an impressive bike course.

Day Trip to Key West

Recommended by Disha of DishaDiscovers.com

One of the best things to do in Miami during your vacation is to take a day trip to Key West. You can enjoy beautiful beaches, fantastic seafood, and the unique charm of Key West in just one day during your visit to this colorful city.

The Miami to Key West drive is an experience in its own right. The Overseas Highway runs over 42 bridges, so you'll get a fantastic view of the Florida coastline as you approach Key West. Once you reach Key West, there are several things to do and see in this scenic destination.

The most popular thing to do is visit Duval Street, where most of the island's bars, restaurants, and shops are located. You'll also want to check out other attractions like the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum. The author lived in this museum for many years, and features several of his original works and personal belongings.

Another popular attraction in Key West is the Southernmost Point of the Continental U.S.A. This historical buoy marks the southernmost point in the continental USA, and taking a photo here is an absolute must.

And if you're looking for beautiful beaches to relax on, head to Fort Zachary Taylor State Park. Be sure to check out the fort before hitting the beach. When it's time for lunch, head to the Southern Most House Hotel and indulge in a lobster pizza. Ask to sit outside so you can enjoy the view of the ocean.

<p><em>Recommended by Vicky of BuddyTheTravelingMonkey.com</em></p> <p>One of the best beaches in the South for a summer beach vacation is, without a doubt, South Beach. This beach is a section of the city of Miami Beach, not to be confused with the city of <a href="https://wanderwithalex.com/things-to-do-in-miami-florida/">Miami</a>. Miami is on the mainland, while Miami Beach is an island city between Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.</p> <p>South Beach is popular with both locals and tourists alike, making it one of the <a href="https://www.buddythetravelingmonkey.com/best-beaches-in-florida/" rel="noopener">best beaches in Florida</a>.

There are also plenty of places nearby to get food and drinks.</p> <p>Make sure to have your camera with you. Popular things to photograph on South Beach are the colorful lifeguard towers, the beautiful water, and the many birds that fly overhead.

Street parking and parking garages are very expensive in the area, so if you can, it's best to walk or use a ride-sharing service.</p>
