How To Prepare For A West Palm Beach Airboat Tour

Whether you’ve scheduled an Everglades airboat tour with West Palm Beach Airboat Rides or you’re considering booking one in the future, you should be properly prepared. Everglades tours are exciting, as they’re a truly unique experience unlike anything else. It’s not every day that you get to experience the Everglades up close and personal, so it’s vital that you get everything right before you step on board. If you’ve never ridden on an airboat tour before, you should know that there are a few things you should do to prepare accordingly for your upcoming trip.

What To Do Before Your West Palm Beach Everglades Airboat Tour

  • Dress Properly
  • Bring The Right Things
  • Come With Questions
  • Get Excited

Dress Properly

Despite being known as the “Sunshine State,” Florida’s weather can be unpredictable. One minute there won’t be a cloud in the sky, the next it’s raining as if we were in the middle of hurricane season. One day it can be very windy, while the next it’s far too humid to even step outside. Before your West Palm Beach airboat ride, make sure that you’re dressing appropriately for the occasion. Check the weather the day of to make sure there won’t be any surprises while out on your airboat. During the winter, we suggest wearing jeans and a long sleeve or windbreaker, as the increased speed along with the temperature might be chillier than you would have preferred.

Bring The Right Things

There are a few essentials that we would recommend bringing on your next Everglades airboat tour. If you’re planning on wearing short-sleeved shirts and shorts, you may want to bring some bug repellent for the mosquitoes. You’ll most likely only have to use it during the summer, and even then we move so quickly that the mosquitoes can’t quite keep up. You’ll also be seeing some gorgeous vistas and locations, so you may want to bring a camera, cellphone, or video recording device. Make sure to leave behind any jewelry and other belongings you wouldn’t want to lose. We move at quick speeds and glide across the water, so anything you lose will be very difficult to recover.

Come With Questions

The Everglades is a vast open expanse with a deep-rooted history. With hundreds of flora and fauna species calling the Everglades home, there’s so much to learn. Come ready to learn and have questions at the ready for your captain. They’re well-versed in the Everglades and have spent years captaining our airboats around the Everglades. They’re more than happy to answer any questions you may have, as well as provide you with some interesting facts of their own.

Get Excited

Most importantly of all, you should get excited about your upcoming Everglades airboat tour with West Palm Beach Airboat Rides! This is a one of a kind experience unlike anything else, and we want nothing more than for you to love every second of it.
