Touring the Everglades

The best way to explore the Everglades is in a fan boat. A fan boat is a large and comfortable boat that is propelled along by a large fan mounted at the back. It’s the best way to explore the tough terrain of the Everglades, as the boat can cruise at high speeds through the saw grass, without the propeller getting tangled somewhere.

You can rent an airboat (along with the airboat operator) for a day, or take advantage of an Everglades tours Miami package tour. The Miami Everglades tours packages include airboat tours and alligator tours.

On the airboat tour, you will get to ride the official Everglades airboat and explore the amazing mangrove forests, hammocks, pineland, slough, and sawgrass of the Everglades. The Everglades National Park covers about 1/5th of the total area of the Everglades. It is government protected land, and many species of animals are on the brink of extinction. For example, manatees, the Florida panther, and bobcats can be found here. The airboat tour of the Everglades is a once in a lifetime experience to catch a glimpse of these wonderful animals in their natural habitat.

The alligator tour of the Everglades is a tour that takes you to see the fearsome reptiles found here. On the tour, you will be taken to places where alligators can be found in plenty, in their natural habitat. The airboat passes so close to them that it’s possible to lean over and pet the animal on the head. You will get lots of chances to click memorable pictures on the tour.
