We took the morning tour with Captain Bobby. He has extensive knowledge about the Everglades which he has explored all his life. This is a very informative and entertaining experience which I highly recommend.

We stopped here today to do the Swamp Buggy and overall we were not very impressed. We did see a bear on the route which was the high lite of the ride. The overall experience otherwise was not very impressive.
