Most people think of swaying palm trees and miles of white sandy beaches when it comes to Florida, but just a quick trip inland will bring you to Peace River Charters in Arcadia, where our airboat tours explore the equally beautiful terrain of Florida’s rivers and swamps. Here are just a few reasons to include one of our tours in your next trip.

 1. It’s a Thrill

Airboat tours are an exhilarating way to explore the area! Fan boats are fast, fun, and allow you to skim across the water as you take in our ecosystem and amazing wildlife. You can be sure your family and friends will talk about our tours for years to come.

2. Wildlife at Your Fingertips

Alligators, turtles, manatees, stingrays, eagles, ospreys, trees, and plants — we’ve got it all! An airboat adventure gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself in our incredible ecosystem! Airboats can go anywhere, shallow and deep water alike, making it an exciting way to encounter nature.

3. It’s Educational

Our guides are here for you! Knowledgeable and experienced, our guides will provide you and your group with a personalized one-on-one experience. Airboats can easily navigate through grass, sandbanks, and dense vegetation, and your guide will be right there to teach you about the river, wildlife, the area’s history, fossils, and ecology.

4. Airboat Rides Are Safe

Airboat rides are suitable for all ages! Not only are they safe for humans but also for the plants and wildlife you will explore. There are no moving parts below the water’s surface allowing the natural state of the water to stay intact. Plants, fish, and other wildlife remain untouched.

5. Experience a Different View

Airboats offer a way to travel to areas of Florida rivers and swamps that are not accessible by foot, and in some cases, not even accessible by other boats! They travel on top of the water, and the raised seating gives you a great view of the surroundings.

Get away from the crowds, and come experience a real Florida ride on the Peace River! We’re located in DeSoto County, just a short drive from Sarasota, Venice, North Port, and Myakka City. Reserve your airboat tour today.
