Fort Lauderdale’s Best Private Airboat Tours

with Captain Bill

Greetings! My name is Captain Bill, and I am the owner of Cypress Outdoor Adventures. My team and I provide private airboat tours of the Everglades for you and your party. Our airboat rides in Fort Lauderdale are tailored for your group, and we do not mix parties. It is our number one priority to provide our customers with a safe and memorable experience.

Do you live in West Palm, Boca Raton, or Miami? Maybe you’re vacationing nearby? Our Everglades airboat tours in Fort Lauderdale is the place to come! You can encounter many types of flora, fauna, birds, and reptiles, maybe even getting a glimpse at the American alligator that populates the area.

What To Expect on Your Airboat Tour

Expect to see things you’ve never seen before. There is a plethora of flora and fauna in the Everglades that isn’t found anywhere else. Your Fort Lauderdale airboat tour guide will let you know when you come upon unique plants in the Everglades, such as the saw palmetto, which is found across most of this region. You may also see southern live oak trees and mule ear orchids. It’s possible you may even see endangered land animals, such as the Florida panther or a black bear.

Expect to set aside at least an hour for your airboat tour. You can take a Fort Lauderdale airboat tour as short as one hour. However, you’re likely going to want to spend more time on the ‘River of Grass.’ You can book longer airboat tours during the day or at sunset, so set aside plenty of time to ensure you have enough time to thoroughly enjoy your outing.

Expect to see alligators during your airboat tour. While we can’t guarantee you’ll see alligators on your Fort Lauderdale airboat tour, you’re likely to spot a few. Keep your eyes peeled for gators throughout your adventure. When you see what looks like a floating log in the water, stop to take a second look. It might just be an alligator! Your Fort Lauderdale airboat tour captain will point out gators and other interesting sites to see along the way, as well as share interesting facts with you about the natural wonders of the Florida Everglades.

Expect to stay dry throughout your airboat tour. You won’t be getting in the water during your Fort Lauderdale airboat tour. Keep in mind that it will likely be hot, so dress accordingly and be sure to drink lots of water to help you stay cool. You can bring cooling towels to help beat the Florida heat.

Why Choose Cypress Airboat Tours in Fort Lauderdale?

Years Of Experience

Cypress Outdoor Adventures is a dream that I’ve had since I was a child. I was fortunate to grow up in the Everglades. My father would take me out almost every weekend and we would explore the Everglades with family and friends. The life’s lessons and respect learned for mother nature and other Gladesmen, are what made me the person I am today. It built strong bonds with my family and gave me a deep appreciation for nature.

Eco Friendly

On your airboat ride you will encounter different types of wildlife; from the different bird species, different types of turtles and of course the American alligator. As we cruise on your private airboat tour you will also see different types of vegetation from cypress , to sawgrass and different types of flowers. I tell my customers about the history of the glades from its days long ago to the impact man has had on this fragile ecosystem. It’s a great way for family and friends to bond and enjoy each other’s company in a private setting.

Safety First

Whether its a large or small group, we can accommodate your needs. The airboats are meticulously maintained for safety and performance. The airboat engines are performance racing engines that are inspected on a daily basis. When you step onboard one of my boats you know that you were stepping on a show quality vessel.
