Owner description: 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

captain randy picked us up at the appointed time and place. we wanted a private tour so we chose captain randy's RIDE THE WIND AIRBOAT TOUR and the two hour tour. we were a family of 4 adults and a 9 and 12 year old. we wanted to see all that we could see, we went 38 miles thru the everglades. we saw birds, lots of beautiful birds, and alligators, lots of alligators, all sizes. so many 8 to 10 inch gators that were in clusters. we saw several buildings out in the everglades. captain randy called them "camps". they are non commercial owned by people that have a connection for some time to the everglades. some were airconditioned and had cable and many amenities just like home. personally i can think of a lot of other places to spend my time than in the middle of a swamp. we all loved the trip. it has been on our bucket list for a long time. it was worth every penny. the nine year old said that it was the best thing she did while she was in florida. that says a lot since they did so many things. captain randy was so nice to the kids he patiently answered all of our questions. the everglades is a wonderful treasure and captain randy loves the everglades and treats the "glades" with great respect. thank you

We did a lot of things on our fun vacation to the Fort Lauderdale area but this was by far the best! Captain Randy is definitely an expert on the Everglades with lots of information and stories to share based on a lifetime of experience. This private airboat ride even allows you to be the driver if you would like to. A once-in-a-lifetime experience, totally worth it.
