Discover the Everglades by Shared Airboat


Explore the ecosystem of the Everglades, once home for the Seminole Indians. See the impact of invasive species of plants and animals.

Your guide will pick you up by private vehicle, and take you out to the Everglades, for a shared airboat tour, operated by a professional Captain. Before the ride, learn about invasive plants and animals that threaten the ecosystem. After your ride, visit a wildlife sanctuary, and hold a small alligator at the reptile exhibit. Then, learn about the planned "pollution solution", to try to resolve all of the issues that threaten this environment. From research universities, to the Army Corps of Engineers, Congress, and the President, find out if there is enough time and money to save the Everglades, or what could happen if we don't.

This tour is for 1 or 2 guests. I can take up to 14 guests by customizing your tour. However, the vehicle used for the tour depends on the number of guests in your tour. If there are more than 2 guests, please email for a customized quote.

Itinerary

From the port, you will be driven by private vehicle to the Everglades, about 20 miles inland from the coast. You will be taken on a shared airboat ride, with a professional captain, for a half-hour ride. On your return to the dock, you will visit a reptile exhibit, and have a chance to hold an alligator! Then, you will visit a wildlife sanctuary, and perhaps hold other small animals. At the end of your visit, you will be driven back to the port, on to Miami or Fort Lauderdale Airport, or to the location you specify, within Broward, Palm Beach, or Miami/Dade County.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: I will pick you up just outside the terminal building as you disembark the ship. Please ask for directions to the "Private Car Pickup" area.

End location: We can return you to the port, or drop you off at either the Miami or Fort Lauderdale Airport. As an option, I can organize to drop you at a shopping mall or other location of interest to you, anywhere in Miami/Dade or Broward Counties.

Duration: 5 hours

Your tour will begin at 09:30 am, and will last about 5 hours. Airboat tours are only cancelled due to high winds and lightning.
