Why Are Private Airboat Rides Better?

Private Is Better

Even if you’ve lived in Florida your whole life or visiting on vacation, you truly haven’t experienced South Florida until you’ve ridden on an Everglades private airboat tour. There’s nothing quite like gliding across the vast waterways of the Everglades. Whether going under the mangrove forests or between the great walls of Sawgrass on each side, airboat tours are one of the most amazing things you can experience while in South Florida. That said, many companies offer public tours, while others offer private airboat tours. Despite public airboat tours being relatively common, you’ll find that private tours are far better in every single way.

Benefits Of A Private Airboat Tour

  • Far More Peaceful
  • Learn Much More
  • Choose Your Own Experience

Far More Peaceful

One of the most enjoyable aspects of being on a West Palm Beach private airboat tour is the resounding peace. The major issue with public airboat tours is that they stuff as many people as possible onto one boat. You will most likely be seated next to a random person and family. People will yell and talk throughout the trip. This makes it impossible to really take in and appreciate the calm of the Everglades. You’ll find that it’s far more peaceful throughout your journey, as the only voices you’ll hear are your own or those of your fellow passengers. You won’t have to worry about people talking or yelling the entire time, as private airboat tours hold far fewer people. The Everglades is a quiet and peaceful ecosystem and it can’t be fully appreciated if you have someone yelling in your ear the entire time.

Learn Much More

On a private airboat tour, you have the pleasure of learning so much about the surrounding area, thanks to your well-versed captain. They’ve spent large portions of their lives traversing the Everglades, so they’re able to answer any question you may have. On a public tour, most captains stick to a script given to them. This script will cover anything from the history of the Everglades to some of the species that live in the area. However, they may not be able to answer any questions outside of the script. Depending on where you’re sitting on the boat, you may not be able to hear them.

If people are talking and the engine is still running, chances are you’ll miss anything the captain may have said. You’ll never have that issue on a West Palm Beach Airboat Rides, as our captains are trained to ensure that you catch anything they may say.

Choose Your Own Experience

The major downside of public airboat tours is that they restrict your airboat tour experience. Most public airboat tours restrict you to only 30 minutes, and they stick to a predetermined path. You could do the same tour three times straight, and you would see the exact same tour every time. On a private airboat tour, you get to choose what you want to see and do while aboard. If you’re looking for thrills, you’ll love the high speeds of our custom-built airboats. Others may want to go birdwatching and may elect for a slower-paced two-hour tour. West Palm Beach Airboat Rides ensures the choice is up to you, and we’ll just get you where you want to go.
