Excellent! Beautiful pristine nature tour thru mangrove tunnels and along banks of Matlacha pass all the way to Charlotte Harbor at Bokeelia. Truly majestic and ancient. A low tide walk on an expansive sandbar provided observations of wading birds, conch, crabs, small fish. Vast sky...More

We saw fish, stingrays, turtle and dolphins. The weather was calm and the water so clear we could see the dolphin in the water around the boat. It was a perfect ride.

What a GREAT time. Definitely worth our time. We couldn't have had a better experience. Captain Bobby is extremely experienced with the backwaters that you would never get to see without a airboat. We were going through 0 inches of water / sandbars. A prop...More

we did one turn that was sharp, but otherwise it was smooth riding, we didn't go wildly fast and some of the parts you go thru is tight so you can't go real fast anyway. I think you'd be ok with the ride.
