Everglades Airboat Ride

It’s finally summer, which means school is out and the kids are ready to play. A trip to the Florida Everglades features tons of unique and exciting activities for the kids, that can help keep the family in touch with nature and each other. With fast-paced and adrenaline pumping rides and attractions, the Florida Everglades can keep up with children and families of all ages.

Everglades Activities – Ready, Set, Go!

Looking to keep the kids active this summer? There is no shortage of physical activities in the Florida Everglades. At Billie Swamp Safari, airboat rides zoom through the marsh, while knowing when to slow down for beautiful wildlife observation. Although children under three are too young to ride the airboat rides, kids and teenagers find it wildly exciting.  For those looking to go deep in the heart of the Florida Everglades, our award-winning Swamp Buggy Eco Tour might be the right ticket! This Everglades eco-tour has plenty of bumping and sloshing through the swamp. While traversing through wetlands, cypress heads and hardwood hammocks, visitors get up close and personal with several animals accessible only on this land adventure.

If a day of peace and relaxation seems more appealing this time of year, the Florida Everglades has that covered as well. Visitors can walk on the boardwalks at Billie Swamp Safari and the Ah-Tah-Thi-KI Museum that weave through the beautiful ecosystem. For those who left their sneakers at home, an animal exhibit or live critter show can pack the excitement and wonder of wildlife observation into a small, safe space. At the same time, you can watch young one’s gaze in awe at the unique Everglades wildlife. These can include snakes, birds, deer, skunks, turtles, crocodiles, goats, capybara and more.
