We had Dwain as a tour guide on our airboat ride. He was a very funny guide and made our ride very enjoyable. He educated us about the mangroves and we got to see a Manatee. He stopped and let us all get personal pictures in the boat. Flying through the mangrove trails is an amazing experience. I have taken... More

Held a gator, got on the boat right on time, first saw some manatees, then went for a high speed ride through amazing mangroves. So fun!

We took a day trip down to the Everglades and decided to check out an air boat tour. The process was efficient and we didn't have to wait long. Captain Jacob was enthusiastic and seemed to really enjoy his job. He told us a bit about the mangroves and the history of the area, zipped us through the tunnels and... More

Awesome airboat ride by Captain Tony! I've been on several airboat rides in Everglade City and Captain Tony was by far the best driver we've ever had. He was very knowledgeable and answered several of our questions about the area. Highly recommended!

Captain Dwain was very engimatic and a lot of fun. He's also a thrill seeker who took us on an exciting white knuckle ride through the narrow mangrove tunnels. Definitely recommend this trip! (Only thing I didn't like was a 3 year old alligator in the car park as an "attraction." This poor creature had its mouth roped shut so... More

We all really enjoyed our airboat tour with Marco. He was very engaging and managed to find us a big alligator under the mangroves. The 360s were fun too. We were much less impressed with the wildlife park. The enclosures were way too small, with little to stimulate the animals. Given that the tickets were quite expensive, some money needs... More

Captain Tony was awesome! He also entertained us during the airboat ride through the Mangroves. What a hoot! Very adventuresome, exciting, with beautiful scenery. If you have the opportunity while in Florida, you need to put this on your list! You will not be disappointed! Carol from Naples, Florida.
