The state of Florida is an amazing place filled with some of the most diverse nature known to men. Florida is home to some of the most interesting landscapes as well. I am talking about the great everglades. The everglades is a slow-moving river and a swamp covering more than 100 miles of the Florida state, it is filled with wildlife and nature, and it is home to some of the most unique animals and insects around the world. Considering this, it is not a surprise that the everglades are also one of the most visited tourist destinations in all of Florida.
But as beautiful as they are, the everglades are essentially a swamp and all swamps that are teaming with life are known to have various plants in the water witch clogs the boat motors making them incapable of moving in the water, that’s where the airboats came into play. Let’s find more about the airboat.
What Is An Airboat?
Essentially an Airboat is a type of boat that does not have any sort of rudder underwater, rather it has a large fan strapped to the back of a boat allowing them to move over swamp water without any issues. These airboats are being used all around the world in swamps because of their ability to move quickly in those waters without having to face any clogged motors.
The first airboat was built in 1905 in Canada and the British army used the machines in 1915 during the First World War. But it wasn’t until 1930 that the civilians got their hands on one. Since the design started to work in civilian applications more and more modifications were made and over the years to perfect it for the use in civilian applications.
Today there are more than a dozen companies that provide tours of the Everglades and show you some of the beauty that the everglades have to offer. Let’s find out what that is.

Everglades is a massive place filled with some of the most unique and fragile ecosystems known to men. There are countless species of animals, birds, and insects that you will never find anywhere else. These rides last about 90 minutes to 2 hours depending on the packages that are available and in that time the boats allow you to see all that the everglades have to offer from one end to the other.
As you know the everglades are a massive place and it is almost impossible to explore the everglades in its entirety but these companies modify their motors and such to make their boats faster and able to cover more ground faster, which to be honest adds a certain fun factor to the tour.
