Are you ready for an unforgettable, unique experience riding through the Florida Everglades? If you have booked our airboat tours, you are ready! When you board our boats, we will take you through the murky waters of the Florida swamps and give you a chance to get up close and personal with some cool animals, including the alligator. To prepare yourself for the trip, you want to follow these few tips.
First things first, you need to make a reservation. Choose the best time that works for the entire family. Our boats are large enough to fit bigger crowds, so the more the merrier. When you make your reservation, you should consider whether you want to go during the day or at night. Both experiences offer different perspectives of the same journey, so you cannot go wrong with either choice.
Even though we are moving quickly through the water, you can still get sunburn if you are not under cover. Prepare yourself by applying sunscreen to your face and arms, because they will be getting the most sun exposure on the trip. The last thing you want to do is leave with a nasty sunburn after such an enjoyable, fun experience. If the sun bothers your eyes, you always want to grab a pair of sunglasses too.
Boat rides are sure to make your loose hairs go wild. To make the best of your experience, we recommend that you tie your long hair back into a ponytail or secure it underneath a hat. This way, you won’t miss any of the view while we are travelling. Many people will bring a hairbrush and leave it in the car to fix their hair after they get off the boat.
Before you head out, check the weather. We operate rain or shine, so it is up to you to bring raingear if the weather is calling for some showers. You can also wear appropriate clothes when you know what temperatures to expect. Typically, we tell our guests to wear tee shirts and bring light jackets that can be removed and secured around your waist.
