Since summer of 2017 you get more bang for your buck if you choose Banana Joe Tours. How is that possible? Our airboat ride takes twice as long (60 minutes) and is twice as fast (speeds of up to 49 mp/h) as the competitions.

On top of that our tour already begins with picking you up from your residence or hotel and our Everglades specialists don’t just give you a boring, pre-fabricated text for you to digest. No! Each and everyone of our specialists love their job and have nothing but admiration for the Everglades. None of your questions will be unanswered, meaning you’ll be actively included in this fantastic tour.

With the passage of the centuries the Everglades have constantly changed and had to face new challenges. Be it drying them out, constructional development, or the invasion of non-native plant and animal species from all over the world. We will show that we hold the Everglades very dear to our hearts, how we are actively involved in preserving this natural wonder of the world for future generations and how you can help and take action in preserving them as well.


On your drive to the park, you will be educated about the past, present and future of the Everglades as well as its densely rich flora and fauna and transform you into an Everglades specialist yourself.

The Everglades are a gigantic 7200 mi² wetlands preserve of which about 8-% consist of unique sawgrass fields. This is the best place for you to experience the incredible biodiversity of the Everglades’ unique Flora and Fauna!



Before we take you back to your hotel or residence, we explain how alligator farming has helped getting these beautiful animals off of the endangered species list and the drive back is your chance to ask all questions that haven’t been answered yet.
