Airboat Ride Fort Lauderdale - Are Airboat Tours Safe? Yes!

Are Airboat Tours Safe in the Everglades?

If you’ve heard about how much fun airboat swamp tours are, you’ve definitely heard about the exciting wildlife we encounter and how close to nature we become. Feeling a little nervous about getting up close and personal with an alligator? Not quite sure about gliding over the glades at sunset? We perform tours of the Everglades every day and can attest to the safety of our boats, our crew, and the nature of your next airboat tour in Fort Lauderdale.

Airboat Tours Are Safe for Kids of All Ages

Fort Lauderdale alligator tours are fun and safe for everyone, from toddlers to great-grandparents. While our big airboat fan can be a little loud, it’s nothing that a pair of ear plugs can’t fix. Passengers may feel like they’re flying across the glades with the wind in their faces, but our boats actually don’t exceed 40 mph. In order to take in the full experience, we make sure to go as slowly as needed so we don’t scare away nearby wildlife.

Sunset Tours of the Everglades are just as safe as Daytime Tours

Scared of the dark? There’s nothing to be afraid of! There’s a variety of nocturnal animals such as gators and panthers that we can safely observe from a distance. A sunset tour allows you the chance to encounter wildlife you wouldn’t normally see during the day.

Our Everglades Airboats are Regularly Maintained and Inspected

The safety of our passengers and crew is our top priority. Properly maintaining our airboats is essential to safely traversing the swamps of Fort Lauderdale, day or night. We guarantee each airboat is regularly inspected and kept up to code by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

We Maintain a Safe Distance from American Alligators and Other Wildlife in the Everglades

Alligator sightings are a huge part of the excitement of our Fort Lauderdale airboat rides. We get just as excited as our passengers to see gators and other wildlife on our tours, but we are professionals with plenty of experience keeping a safe distance. Alligators don’t pay any mind when strangers pass by, as long as we maintain a respectful amount of space between us.
