Most of the nearly 2400 square miles of Everglades National Park is managed as a wilderness area and Airboats are prohibited in these parts of the park.
There is a section in the northern area of the park that was added as park land in 1989 and private airboat operators currently offer tours in this area.
These operators are located off of U S 41/Tamiami Trail between Naples and Miami. There are several airboat operations that offer tours in non-park lands, also along U S 41/Tamiami Trail.
