About Our Semi-Private Everglades Tour in Miami

Starting at just $85 per person, our semi-private Miami Everglades tour allows individuals and couples to experience the Everglades in a whole new way! Even though our Miami Everglades tour is semi-private, riders are still able to enjoy riding on our airboats with only a handful of other individuals. During this tour, you and the others will be able to get up close and personal with some of the amazing animals in the Everglades, including the famous Florida alligators, that call these waters their home.

The overall Miami tour lasts two hours, where you will be able to take plenty of pictures and learn a lot about the Everglades from our experienced airboat pilots.
