Hollywood  Airboat Ride Safety Information For Consumers:

Safety is a big priority in this industry that is not often thought of when booking an airboat trip, and you and your family should have a fun and safe airboat ride in the Florida Everglades. Which ever company you chose to do an airboat ride with ask them these simple questions. Ask your everglades tour guide how long have they been in business this will give you an Idea of there experience in operating airboats. Also ask them if there safety equipment is up to date and have they ever been involved in any airboating accidents with customers being hurt. You may also ask if there Captains are licensed United States Coast Guard Captains, and ask to see there Insurance. There have been serious injuries and some deaths caused by operators who are not experienced and do not have the credentials this is an important part of the booking process for you and your family. I will add there are some fine companies out there that have great safety records you need to use them. 

When booking the best airboat rides in Florida here are a few tips when deciding what to look for, there is a big difference in commercial airboat tours versus Private airboat rides. The first thing is normally the size of the air boats, Larger air boats holding 20 to 30 passengers or more are made for carrying large number of passengers and are not as maneuverable as your smaller private airboats. So if your looking for the thrill of the airboat ride as well as an educational echo tour then the smaller airboat tour companies may be your best option. Another factor is that the larger airboats sometimes cannot get into the smaller trails that lead you into the deeper part of the everglades where you may encounter more wildlife and larger alligators.

If you want to get some great photos and/or video of the everglades it is sometimes difficult on larger commercial boats based upon where you are sitting on the air boat. Normally commercial air boat rides are 30 to 45 minutes long, private everglades tours may be from one to three hours based on the air boat tour company. Normally private air boat rides are owner operated and in some cases may be more experienced than employees, thats not to say there are not some experienced commercial air boat ride captains as well as reputable commercial airboat tour companys.

The cost factor for private air boat rides versus commercial rides will differ as well, normally you will pay more for a private air boat tour than a commercial everglades tour, obviously because there are far less passengers and you have the one on one experience. The cost to maintain a custom private air boat depending on the engine and horsepower can be costly for the air boat operator as well. Some high performance airboats new, can cost up to seventy thousand dollars, with high performance engines comes a costly maintenance factor. Half the fun of being on an airboat ride is the airboat itself. Basically you will have to decide on what experience you want to have on your trip to the Everglades based on your budget as well as your expectations.

Where you take your tour is a factor as well, the true boundaries of the everglades echo system and the river of grass run basically from south lake Okeechobee in west palm beach to Florida bay south of Miami into the south end of Everglades National Park. Some Florida tour companies offer airboat rides which are not basically in the Florida Everglades, a perfect example would be Airboat rides in Orlando Florida, this is not part of the Everglades Echo system, were not saying the ride may not be fun were saying it will not be in the everglades echo system. The core of the Everglades is in west Miami that is where you will find Everglades national Park.

Our professional airboat guides at cypress airboat rides will take you on a personalized, educational airboat tour covering approximately 15 miles of this unique wetland. We first go into the vast open saw grass where you will see why the Everglades are called the “River of Grass”! You will travel by Airboat through sawgrass into the Miami Everglades National Park stopping at alligator holes and seeing the abundance of wildlife. See the Purple Gallanule voted the most colorful bird in Florida and the endangered Everglade Snail Kite as well as herons, grackles, turtles, raccoons and other Everglades residents! The Everglades are a truly unique and vibrant environment which you can only experience first hand! Unless you brought your hip waders, a private airboat ride is the best way to see it!.
