Boat makes a hell of a noise,hence ear plugs. The Glades themselves reminded me of an over grown Norfolk Broads in the U.K. If your passing it's worth a visit to day you have been. Saw a couple of Crocs but got a better view...More

I like to think of this tour as a way to help preserve our country's third largest national park. The 1 1/2 hour boat tour offers a chance to see the Everglades with a small group of others and commentary by a knowledgeable captain and...More

The tour was just not worth the money. As a family of 4 we spend around $140 for a 90 minute boat tour. That was a clean $ 1,000 for the captain (per tour of 90 minutes). An attraction completely in line with the rest...More

We chose this over an airboat tour as preferred more in-depth, longer and quieter tour of the mangroves than just gator-gawping. We weren't disappointed. Captain Joyce took us out at 9am. We saw Dolphins right alongside the boat. We saw turtles, got to handle the...More
