Private Boat Rides Are Safer

There is no better way than private boat rides to get you closer to the Everglades wildlife. Airboats are truly the ultimate experience. However, just like any tourist activity, it is now more important than ever that you stay safe. Groups of people can now be at risk due to the COVID-19 crisis, and we want to assure you your safety comes first. We take your well-being extremely seriously, and we embrace safety measures during your West Palm Beach Everglades tour.

The State of Florida Health Advisory recommends that you stay away from crowds, closed contact, and closed spaces. You should try to avoid gatherings of more than ten people. All Florida residents and visitors are advised to wear face coverings when in a public space.

It is now a fact that going to public spaces will increase your exposure to COVID-19. We understand that taking a boat ride with some strangers isn’t the ideal way to stay safe. This is why we continue to offer private airboat rides, so you can tour with the people you know and stay away from groups of strangers. You are safer with the people you know, it limits your exposure and makes for a more pleasant experience all round. 

Another added benefit of private airboat rides is that you will have more space in the boat, providing your group isn’t too large. This should help with keeping your distance from people. Don’t worry, our rides take place outdoors. You won’t be in a closed space with a bunch of unknowns. Instead, you will be out in the open air with the people you know and feel more comfortable with.

Take a look at the CDC travel guidelines during COVID-19 if you are thinking of traveling to Florida. Their website contains useful information and links about what you should do during your travels. Sadly, traveling to an area where there are confirmed cases will increase your chances of being exposed to COVID-19. Also, you should bear in mind that older people and those with an underlying medical condition are more likely to develop severe complications from this illness.

There are a few things you can do to protect yourselves and others during your travels. You can wear a mask to keep your mouth and nose protected. If you can, try to stay 6 feet apart from people, especially from those that are not part of your household. Don’t forget to wash your hands regularly, and use hand sanitizer if you can. Try not to touch your eyes, nose and mouth. Finally, avoid being in contact with any sick people. Those steps will greatly increase your safety while you travel.

Make sure to book your private boat ride in advance. You will be all set and good to go. Knowing everything is ready will bring you some peace of mind, you will be able to truly look forward to your Everglades adventure. Your safety is essential to us. An advance booking means we can organize and get everything ready for you, all in a safe way.
