Whether it’s your first time in Fort Lauderdale or you visit frequently, there are always many new wonders to discover in the area. If you’ve never experienced an airboat tour of the Everglades, it’s about time you did! If you’re still on the fence or need another reason to get started scheduling your tour, take a look at these top three reasons to take a beautiful sunset tour of the Everglades.
Reason #1: A Once-In-a-Lifetime Experience
Have you ever wanted to go hang gliding, skydiving, or rock climbing? Airboating is another thrill you need to experience at least once in this life. Gliding across the water, we can reach speeds up to 40 miles per hour. An airboat tour gives you an up close and personal view of wildlife you would never get on land. You get to see the glades as the animals themselves see the area.
Airboats offer a true eco tour that gives off virtually no pollution, unlike a motor tour boat. Party with friends and family or take a private tour with our experienced guide, Captain Bill, down the coast.
Reason #2: Wildlife You Can Only Find Here
The Florida Everglades is home to several species of plants and trees native only to wetlands as well as endangered animal species. It houses the Florida panther, the American alligator, the snail kite, and the wood stork, to name a few. With an eco-friendly airboat tour, sailing across the still waters at dusk you can become closer to nature than you’ve ever been before.
The thrill of spotting a lurking croc or gator, or a far-off bobcat on the coast, is better than any thrill you’ll get from visiting your local zoo. Touring with Cypress Outdoor Adventures gives you a unique perspective on the area, as Captain Bill has been studying the Everglades since he was a boy.
Reason #3: Watching the Sun Set on the Everglades
While you’re keeping your eyes peeled for creatures that come out to dine at dusk, don’t forget to take in the scenery around you as the sun touches ground. Sunset is the most beautiful time of day to be out on the water. In a heart-stopping moment you’ll spot nighttime dwellers feeding right near your boat! But nothing compares to the orange-filled sky reflecting on the water and the silhouette of the glades at twilight.
If you still aren’t convinced after this, just take a drive by the Everglades at dusk and see exactly what you’re missing! Though you won’t get the full experience of a sunset airboat tour, it will be enough to make you want to explore much more.
