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.

Airboats are the only vehicle that can effortlessly cruise through the deep swampland of the Everglades. Given this fact, it goes without saying that an airboat is the best way to explore Florida’s endless River of Grass. But, merely acquiring an airboat and venturing into the Everglades can be rather dangerous. Unlike other waterways in Florida, the Everglades does not have any posted signs indicating directions, speed limit, etc. Guided Everglades Airboat tours are the safest and most exciting way to ensure that you get the most out of your tour of the Everglades.

Florida Panther

A Puma Subspecies

The Florida Panther is of the Puma subspecies which ranges from mountain lions, cougars, and more. This specific type of panther lives within the Everglades of Florida as well as the surrounding swamps. Panthers keep the wild boar population in check and are the main food source. The Panther is the official state animal. Although popular now and better understood, there was a time in the past when settlers mistook the nature of the Florida Panther. In the past, they were hunted into near extinction. This made the panthers one of the most endangered mammals on Earth. Today, one of the only ways to see such a creature would be during a Florida Swamp tour, with a lot of luck.

Everglades Birds

Bird Species of the Everglades

The Everglades National Park holds more than 350 species of birds and there are many ways to identify them. Generally, the birds of the glades can be placed into three different groups wading birds, land birds, and birds of prey. One of the most common kinds of birds you’ll come across is wading birds. Wading Birds all have long legs for wading in the shallow warm waters to catch their food. The White Ibis is a beautiful and commonly found wading bird. The ibis dines mostly on crayfish while most wading birds just prefer fish. The White Ibis is identified by its long curved beak that it uses to probe the shallows and mud in search of crayfish.

When Were Airboats Created?

Airboats in the Everglades did not exist until after the late 1930s. The area that now lies between Fort Lauderdale and Naples including the National Park was considered an undesirable area.  The residents of South Florida and the first tycoons planned to develop the Everglades and commercialize it. Little did they know the most important factor of this Ecosystem was the water. This is what started the push for Its preservation, but that is another story. The first so-called airboat built outside of the United States was built by Alexander graham bell in 1905 in Canada it was called the ugly duckling. There is still debate today that Glen Curtis built the first actual airboat built for the swamps of Florida.
