Overview

Charters goes deep into the Florida Everglades and covers over 36 miles where you'll see lots of gators, birds, turtles, and camps with over 200 years of history. The best part is that you get to drive the airboat. Bring a cooler if you like. Snacks, soda, water and adult drinks are welcome. Are you looking for the most remarkable gator action? Ride the Wind is the leading airboat tour in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Our airboat tours depart every few minutes, so your Everglades experience starts the instant you arrive. We also provide private tours for a more intimate and particular look at the alligators. Your safety

We had the greatest time on this tour! We saw countless gators and beautiful birds. Captain Randy was a great guide and our 2 young kids (3 & 7) had a great time. Highly recommend this tour!

It was an amazing afternoon on the water. Captain Randy was very friendly and knowledgeable. Our family could not have asked for a better experience in the Everglades ‼️‼️‼️ Our Mom is not a water person but she really enjoyed this private tour with us.
