We had such a wonderful time! We saw tons of gators, they're all over the place! Victor was an excellent captain/tourguide/photographer/bartender. We did the private evening tour and it was phenomenal.

Zehra we have had babies as young as 8 months old on the airboat before. Babies sit between 2 adults in the middle of the seat.
We are coming to Miami 5/18 to 5/21 and are looking to do an Everglade Tour for a group of 5 girls. We are staying in South Beach. Any recommendations on a tour group that would pick us up and drop us off from SB? Thank you!
