Is an Airboat Tour Safe?

airboat tourAn airboat tour is a safe ride. Just like going on a boat, car, bus, plane, motorcycle, and any other moving vehicle or vessel, there are risks, but if you and the captain follow safety rules and the boat is kept up, you will be in for a safe, memorable ride.

At Captain Mitch’s Airboat tours, we perform regular maintenance on our airboats to ensure they are safe for rides. Our captains have years of experience and are knowledge with airboats, boating and the waterways of the Everglades. They know how to direct the boat through different areas and waters safely. We also will not set out on the water if the weather is too dangerous. We do no want to get caught in a thunder and lightening storm on the water.

Our captains will bring you by all sorts of wildlife and plant life. You may spot alligators, fish, snakes, frogs, birds, and other animals. You will always be kept at a safe distance – you don’t need to worry about any wildlife feeling threatened.

Our captains will discuss safety precautions before heading out into the water. You should keep your hands down. Dress appropriately for the weather (can get windy/chillier on the boat). You should wear sunscreen, sunglasses, and/or a hat for sun protection.

Our boats have a First Aid kit on board and lifejackets.

If everyone plays by the rules, an airboat tour will be the ride of your life!
