Posted by Sam Haught on Jun 5, 2017 10:31:45 AM

Florida... A state filled with a little bit of everything. From beaches to top attractions, there's no limit to the adventure you can have when you visit Florida. By your third or fourth visit, you might be what we call "theme-parked out" and are looking to do something different this trip. One of the great things about airboat rides in Florida is that they're a great way to get some fresh air and relax, and is fun for people of all ages. On the blog, we'll go over three more perks of an airboat ride in Florida.

1. See a wide variety of wildlife and plant life on your Florida airboat tour

When most people think of animals in Florida, the first thing that comes to mind is, of course, the American Alligator. However, with a warm climate year-round and a variety of food and water sources, Florida creates a hospitable environment for a variety of animals to thrive and raise their young. Little do tourists (and even Floridans) know, but there are over 300 different species of wildlife that can be found in Florida, with about 80 species living in or around Lake Cypress. Meaning that, even with our airboat captains' expertise in spotting animals out in the wild, you'll need to go on multiple airboat rides to see all of Florida's wildlife.

2. Be in the heart Central Florida's top attractions

Despite what your teachers might've told you about the Everglades, it isn't only found in south Florida. The Everglades actually starts in Central Florida. So you don't have to travel to Miami to experience the real, wild side of Florida. Another perk of doing an airboat ride in Florida (specifically in Central Florida) is that after you finish your airboat tour, you're just a short drive from, well... everything! From shopping malls to other local attractions, you and your family have a variety of options of other activities to enjoy.
