Take an Everglades airboat tour and see Florida's wilderness up close. At nearly 1.5 million acres in size, this unique wetland habitat is home to numerous rare and endangered species. Your tour of the Everglades will take you through this preserved wilderness on a 30-minute airboat ride, followed by an alligator show and time to explore a lush walking trail.
With this Miami tour, you will be picked up from your Downtown Miami or Miami Beach hotel and transported to the Everglades. Then you will board an airboat and glide through the wilderness made up of wet grasslands and hardwood hammocks. During this Everglades tour, you are likely to catch a glimpse of endangered wildlife as you skim across the glassy water in the preserved Florida ecosystem. Your expert airboat captain will be happy to point out the alligators, native birds, and snakes, as well as other exotic wildlife in their natural habitat. This is Florida in its purest form.
After the airboat ride, take in the alligator wildlife show and get as close as is safe to these amazing reptiles. You will be left with plenty of time to experience the walking trail filled with flora and fauna exhibits. Stop in at the restaurant and have some lunch or just grab a snack. Be sure to pick up a souvenir at the gift shop on your way out so that you will have something to remind you of this incredible adventure.
Don't forget your camera, as you'll even be given the opportunity to hold a baby gator during this thrilling Everglades wilderness tour. After you've had your fill of fun, you'll be shuttled back to your hotel to enjoy the rest of the great city of Miami on your own.
Please Note: If you are arriving by cruise ship, please select the Bayside Marketplace as your pick up location. The Bayside Marketplace is an approximately 25 minute walk or a 5 to 10 minute taxi ride (not included, approximately $15 US each way) from the pier. This tour is not a transfer tour, and luggage cannot be accommodated.

Wife and I took this excursion and enjoyed it. We were picked up at our hotel in timely fashion and after a number of other stops, made the hour or so journey to the Everglades. The bus driver was a pleasant fellow, however we were reaching speeds of 80 MPH in this tour vehicle which in my opinion put the passengers at risk. I think he got behind schedule but that is no excuse. Our guide and boat operator gave us a pleasant ride and explanation. Aside from the drivers speed issue, I would go again.
It is amazing. The driver is very nice and humorous.

It was a allaround good experience, the boat was very noisy.
First time down in Miami, definitely a must see. It was amazing how large the Everglades are! We read about it but seeing it is a much more awe inspiring feeling.

We came off a cruise earlier that day. If your bus could accommodate our 2 small luggages, it'll be much more appreciated. Wish you can add this service, even for a small fee.
