Everglades Airboat Ride: Video

Airboat 3

The Everglades: 21st March 2015

When you think about it, the airboat is probably the best way to get around the Everglades. The shallow draught means that it rarely, if ever, runs aground, and there is no chance of the propeller getting fouled by weeds and things.

Like the Egyptian river cruise boats, it will probably sail on a heavy dew.

A big plus, though, is that the passengers are really close to the water, and get an excellent view of what’s going on. Unlike the pilot, who sits high up … presumably to get a better view of what’s ahead, but maybe, also, out of the reach of snapping jaws?
