We had an excellent tour with an excellent captain. "Captain Willy" was great he took the time to explain the area, the different animals and vegetation in the area and the different purposes for them. The captain never made you feel uncomfortable or unsafe while driving the airboat. This was a great experience and would highly recommend.

We took this airboat charter with our captain , Alex who was AMAZING--we have never met a man who is so caring and passionate about his job. He was able to explain everything to us with brief history about the Everglades itself as well as alligators. Seriously he is awesome! The trip itself opens your eyes to how big the... More

Great experience. Information was not recycled things that we've heard before. It was thrilling, but peaceful. Enjoyed the wind in my hair, especially on such a hot day. Held a baby gator after the boat ride, for a mere $3. Stay for the gator show, which is included. Great place, but if you're not a middle of nowhere type of... More

A great trip, 3 couples on a 11/2 hr private tour. With our Captain Alex we saw plenty of Gaitors, very informative. I have been on a trip elsewhere previously from an Alligator farm but this was a much better experience, more natural.

My family and I took this experience with Capt. Gary and had a great time. A private tour in the "River of Grass". I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to see the true Everglades and get off the beaten path. Next time we will go longer than just the hour.
