We took the 11:30 AM cruise of the 10,000 islands. There were four of us place eight others. We were an international group with people from the US, England, and France. We all enjoyed our hour and half cruise. The highlights were seeing several dolphin close to the boat, seeing a beautiful osprey, and the white pelicans flying in mass.... More

The tour was a lot of fun. The staff was very nice and stopped anywhere or is returned where there was something to see. They also have very well informed about the flora and fauna. We have seen not only alligators and crocodiles, but also dolphins. :) The story of the man made channel was also very interesting.

Took the 9:15 Mangrove Tour with one other couple on a boat seating 6. CPT Josh did his best to find wildlife-visiting the dolphin area both outgoing and enroute back. The forested "lanes" the boat navigated were truly a natural beauty. Various birds were spotted and identified by Josh. One alligator, buried deep in the Mangroves was our only sighting... More

Loved the ride! The Captain was very informative on all the birds and fish living there. My husband stayed behind me to tip the Captain and the other young man(I think we were the only ones to tip them). My husband was in the car and I stood outside the car looking at my video from the boat ride. The... More

We really wanted to go on the Mangrove Tour. However, because it only takes 6 people at a time, the restrictions made it impossible for us to go. No refunds are given unless they cancel for bad weather (lightning or hurricanes, apparently). You have to pay ahead and if your preferred time is full, they simply move you to another... More

We recently visited the Everglades National Park, through Everglades City. We knew we wanted to take a boat tour through the mangroves, and expected that the Airboats were our best option. With an 18month old baby, we were not sure how well she would do with the loudness of the Airboats, or even if it was a possible to do... More

We took the mangrove boat tour, which held 6 passengers but we 2 were the only ones. Quieter than the air boats and we saw dolphins, one manatee, numerous alligators, and a lot of birds. The cruise through the mangrove forest was especially scenic. Our guide/pilot/captain was pleasant and knowledgeable.

I think this area offers a unique view of the Everglades at the very edge of the fresh water - salt water interface. The mangrove swamps are interesting as are the thousand islands tours. The mangrove tour is in an open boat so it is essential to come prepared with sun screen, a hat, bug repellent, and, a good pair... More

We went our on a Thousand Island tour and had a good time. The friendly captain did his best to find us some wildlife. Even though it was a hot and calm summer day, we saw a few birds, dolphins, and manatees.
