What is an Airboat Ride?

An airboat is a flat-bottomed vessel propelled by a giant fan mounted at the back. Unlike traditional boats, airboats have no submerged propeller, making them ideal for navigating shallow waters and gliding over thick vegetation characteristic of the Everglades. Think of it as a thrilling ride that skims across the water’s surface!
