Jupiter airboat rides Everglades

Are Jupiter airboat rides eco-friendly?

You often ask us about how eco-friendly we are. There is a vastly growing trend of people wanting to be good for the environment, which applies a lot to tourism in Florida. The Everglades has seen many changes over the years, and not always for the better. We built roads and dams. Human habitats and industries have influenced the course of nature, affecting nature and the local wildlife. The Everglades used to be the most extensive marshes and swamplands in the U.S.A, but its size has dwindled over time. It is therefore essential to help towards the restoration of the Everglades environment. By having little effect on nature, Jupiter airboat rides are an excellent eco-friendly method of tourism. Here is why.


Jupiter Airboat rides respect the environment

The most crucial function of airboats is that they glide over the surface of the water. It is unlike traditional boats. How does this translate to being eco-friendly, you may ask. It is simple. Because they stay above the water level, airboat propellers tend to not physically contact both the plant life and the animals. Since the boat’s engine is a giant propeller that is way above the surface, our engines do not damage the plants or hurt the creatures of the Everglades. We sometimes glide over underwater creatures, leaving them to get on with their day. In short, airboats do very little to affect the environment, which is why they are the best method of navigating the Everglades.


We also respect the wildlife

We understand that a significant part of your experience is to come across some of the creatures unique to the Everglades. We will do our best so you will encounter the American Crocodile and many other creatures. However, you can rest assured that we will not bother those animals. We always keep the suitable distances so they can go undisturbed. It is important to us to respect their routines, to make sure they go unaffected by our airboat tours. Also, keeping the correct distances will keep you safe, so it’s a win-win situation. We will reveal many facts about the wildlife to help you appreciate an outstanding balance between tourism and respecting those creatures’ natural inhabitat.

Private airboat rides are less touristic feeling

We’ve all been there before. You want to appreciate and breathe in the nature around you, but loud tourists make it difficult. We don’t want your nature exploration ruined by others. Therefore, we only arrange private airboat rides. This way, you can genuinely enjoy the Everglades with the people close to you. You can book a ride for your family, your friends, or even as a couple. The idea is to get the right setting for you to appreciate what is around you genuinely. By getting closer to nature and away from all the noise, you get a better experience that feels closer to nature.
