Explore the Everglades by Airboat
About an hour outside of Miami lies the wild and untamed Florida Everglades. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a collection of sawgrass marshes, swamp ecosystems, and mangrove forests. It is home to alligators, crocodiles, and over 350 bird species. Airboat in Everglades gives you the opportunity to explore this region in an airboat. Airboats will allow you to travel through areas where traditional boats cannot. This unique form of transportation is propelled by a giant fan, and can easily travel through swamps and marshes as shallow as 6 inches!
