In between the scorching beaches of Miami and Key West’s white sands, the southern portion of Florida stands in stark disparity with 1.5 million acres of tropical wetlands, known as the Everglades National Park. Its grassy swamplands, popularized by the term “River of Grass”, attracts millions of tourists every year.

As the area covered by the park is so expansive, there are three entrances to the park that are not linked and are accessed through different areas of south Florida. Through Miami or Everglades City, you can access the northern part of the park and the southern section can be accessed through Homestead.

All these sections of the park offer different activities. The Anhinga Trail is perfect for spotting wildlife, such as alligators, herons and turtles, while hiking. The Shark Valley’s 65 ft. long observation tower and open-air vehicles allow you to observe the everglades from the sky. Kayak over Florida Bay to spot American crocodiles, white pelicans and dolphins, paddle amongst the mangroves in the 10,000 Islands National Wildlife Refuge or visit the historic Nike Hercules missile base.


The adventures at Everglades are affected by two distinct weather patterns: a dry season and a wet season. The wet season is accompanied with regular flooding while there is a drought in the dry season. It’s important to plan your trip ahead of time, as the wet season, which lasts from April to November, is extremely busy and ranger programs are not obtainable. November to March marks the dry season, and it also attracts a considerable amount of people, as it offers an opportunity to spot a huge variety of wading birds that come to the area due to the warm winters.


An Everglades tour allows you to experience different activities and the extensive area allows you to explore a huge variety of vegetation and wildlife in various eco-systems that include, freshwater sloughs, mangroves, coastal lowlands, tropical hammocks, marl prairies, pinelands, marine, cypress, and estuarine.

We receive a lot of positive customer feedback here at Cypress Airboats. This is one from a recent rider.

Dear Wayne:

A belated yet heartfelt thank you for taking us on the trip into the Miami portion of the Everglades Saturday afternoon. Marina and I have a wonderful time (even with the sprinkles!) and enjoyed every moment of our Everglades swamp tour. You are an excellent guide, knowledgeable and warm, and we deeply appreciated your explaining things to us so thoroughly. It was an A+ trip, the Everglades swamp tours will not soon be forgotten.

Thanks again and may you have a wonderful and successful year!

Airboat gliding over waterAside from airboats and aside from exploring the wildlife, other things that you can do in Florida is going to the beach. You can swim all you want, enjoy the white sand, and try water sports and other activities. You also don't want to miss the Everglades, which is the 3rd biggest national park in the US. It's a 10,000 square mile area of subtropical marshes, tree islands, mangrove forest, and prairies where you can find different wildlife animals and amazing species.

The best time to go on an airboat ride is during summer when the sky is very clear and at night when the alligators feed. As mentioned before, there are no age limits so the whole family can go. Included in the fees are hearing protection and life vests. Although you'll be with a guide who'll take care of you, it is still highly recommended that you exercise caution. Keep your eyes open, as you'll never know when an alligator or other wildlife animals might be a few feet away.

The Best Airboat ride in Hollywood Florida E-mail

Father and Son Airboat RideI was looking for that perfect birthday gift for my 10 year old son Joshua. Other Florida attractions are nice, but they're often filled with way too many people and the experience is diminished. After checking out a few other companies, i decided to give Cypress Airboats a call. Captain Wayne was a complete surprise to deal with. Friendly, knowledgeable, and very accommodating. I decided to book their silver Cypress Outdoor Adventures package from Fort Lauderdale for the two of us, and it was one of the greatest experiences i have ever had. My son had such a good time that he has now decided he wants to be a Marine Biologist. I just can't thank Captain Wayne and his crew enough, you made my son a very happy boy and me a very proud father. We will never forget our airboat tour in the Everglades.

Awesome airboat tourIt was a great day on the water today the cooler temps have subsided and it’s warming up in south Florida. Today I had the pleasure of meeting George and Marian Backenstoes from Pennsylvania they loved the airboat ride in Fort Lauderdale and we encountered a lot of winter birds still in town, also we were able to get up close and personal with a group of large alligators. The temps today were in the upper 70s and it was a great trip to say the least.

Mother and Son share an Airboat Ride E-mail

My son Brian and I really enjoyed your Everglades swamp tours in Fort lauderdale. Not many sons would take their senior citizen mother on an airboat ride. I had the most amazing time, two hours was not nearly enough. I could have spent the entire day riding on that airboat. I wish Brian had taken a close up picture of your airboat for me. That was one cool looking machine. I hope Brian can return and go fishing one day. We truly enjoyed the Everglades tour with you and hope to see you again one day.
