One of the concerns we often hear about Fort Lauderdale airboat tours is regarding your family. More specifically, people often ask us if our airboat tours are safe for their children. Another question we get a lot is about people of older age. All those questions are very valid, and we want to address those concerns. Straight off the bat, we are happy to announce to you that airboat rides in the Everglades are indeed safe for your family. Whether it is for your children or older siblings, airboats are very much of the safest transport methods. Let’s dive into this further.
We have reached an age where we are more eco-conscious than ever before. That is a great thing, especially in a place like the Everglades. The truth is that the Everglades isn’t nearly as big as it used to be. The construction of roads, dams, industries and human habitats has negatively affected the ecosystem over time. There are now many projects that are maintaining and restoring parts of the Everglades. As an airboat tour operator, we believe that Florida Everglades’ private airboat rides can raise awareness of the Florida ecosystem. Furthermore, airboats are probably one of the best ways to keep nature intact while cruising across the Everglades.

People often wonder when is the best time to visit the Everglades. The truth is that with Florida’s hot climate, any time is a good time. Florida offers good weather all-year-round, but some seasons might make it more comfortable for certain people to visit at a specific time. Instead of looking at seasons in the spring/summer/fall/winter way, it is easier to divide Florida’s weather into two seasons: the dry and wet seasons. Ultimately, you might prefer one season over the other, but as you will find out, Airboat Rides Fort Lauderdale works very well during both of those seasons.

The Burmese Python is among the most problematic invasive species in Florida’s Everglades. They invade the area entirely, taking over the land, and killing many of the Swamp’s native species. The presence of Pythons in the Everglades is a nightmare for conservation efforts. Furthermore, Everglades experts think that the Python invasion may be the worst to ever affect the Everglades.
There have been a number of different efforts made in an attempt to handle the Python problem. Recently, hunters and contractors have been invited into the historic wetlands to provide assistance in killing and removing these pests from the Everglades. We understand how detrimental Pythons are to the ecosystem.
